2019 Leaders of Tomorrow: Jaden Cook, Highland Park

At Highland Park Elementary, Jaden is a leader because she does a lot for our school.

She monitors in the kindergarten classroom every recess and lunch. She helps the kids put on their shoes and coats, has them walk quietly down the hallway, and watches them while they eat their lunches. Jaden also does Letter Buddies three times a week with a child in a primary classroom.

She helps him practice his letter names and sounds.  Jaden is also involved in running fundraising activities for our grade 7 leaving ceremony. Jaden can always be found with a smile on her face and practicing random acts of kindness. 

Outside of school, Jaden plays for the Pride 06 softball team.  She always tries her hardest at games and practices. She encourages her teammates to do their best and always focusses on the positives! Jaden can also be seen umpiring other softball games. 

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.
