Albion Elementary’s Jane Stafford is an excellent student with a passion for reading and writing, and has participated in National Novel Writing Month twice. Her creative interests outside of school include taking dance lessons for five years and piano lessons for six. In her free time, Jane likes to read, watch movies and spend time with her friends.
Jane’s favourite subjects were Math and English, and she has represented her class in the annual Public Speaking Competition three times.
Jane was heavily involved in leadership activities at Albion Elementary during the 2015/16 school year. She was a member of the leadership club and has been a part of the District Student Advisory Council for two years. As a leader at her school she helped to plan Spirit Week, a Bake Sale to send kids to school in Uganda and Coins for Kids, an initiative to help Free the Children and the Food Bank.
Jane regularly represented her fellow students as MC during school assemblies and made PA announcements regarding important programs at the school. One of her favorite roles was acting as a lunch-time monitor for primary students.
A highlight for Jane last year was attending We Day, in support of Free the Children. The speakers had inspiring stories that showed her one person can make a big change in the world, so she was motivated to continue her leadership efforts.
Jane loves to be involved in leadership activities around the school because she enjoys making a positive difference in the community and brightening people’s days. When she attends SRT this year, Jane plans to be involved with Student Council, the Social Justice Club and, once again, DSAC. Further down the road, Jane plans to attend University and focus on writing and teaching.
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 2015/16 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 2016 Leaders of Tomorrow.
