Jackson is a wonderful member of the Blue Mountain community.
He is a Grade 7 student (2018-19 school year) who is an active member of the school’s ME to WE student group. Jack’s teachers note how kind-hearted, compassionate and helpful Jack is both inside the classroom and out of it. Jack’s sister has spina bifida; he often shares with the class stories about her and how people with disabilities should be treated with kindness.
Jack is an avid hockey player who will be attending Garibaldi Secondary in fall 2019. He explained to his principal that he enjoys working with three kindergarten students, helping with their academics and helping outside. Thank you Jackson for all your leadership.
About Leaders of Tomorrow
The Maple Ridge – Pitt Meadows School District (SD42) has teamed up with the Maple Ridge News to celebrate local students who are making a difference at school and in the community. Elementary and secondary students featured as Leaders of Tomorrow were picked by their principals for making positive achievements in academics, sports, arts and community involvement.
The list is just a sample of outstanding students in the school district selected by their school during the 2018/19 school year – there are many others who were equally deserving of recognition for their exemplary achievements both inside and outside the classroom. Every Tuesday throughout the school year, SD42 will profile a student selected as one of the 2019 Leaders of Tomorrow.
