Congratulations to our Grade 5 Reading Link Team, who took home Bronze at the Fraser Valley Regional Community Challenge. This year a total of 430 teams from 94 schools competed in the Fraser Valley Regional Library Communities alone! We are so proud of our students, who came in third out of those 430 schools.
For Spanish Language B students in Grades 9 to 11, this trip is a great opportunity for students not just to improve their Spanish and learn the culture but it can also be an used as an activity towards the Duke of Edinburgh residential project, needed to complete the Gold level.
Four competitions, four sets of outstanding results. Meadowridge students competed in both national and provincial mathematics contests last month, and we are proud to announce their final standings.
Meadowridge School has just received news that the Council of International Schools (CIS) has granted a full accreditation to our school. The CIS is regarded as the gold standard in accrediting organizations globally, just as the International Baccalaureate (IB) is considered the best international curriculum.
If you've never heard this next phrase uttered, you're probably not a Math teacher: when will I ever use this in real life? We all agree that Math is important, but when faced with a problem we can't quite figure out, our immediate reaction is to denounce its rightful place in the world.
When you think about wholesome, home-cooked meals, you don't typically think of them being served up by a 16-year-old. For teenagers, the common belief is this: if it's not instant, canned, frozen, or ready in under three-steps, then it's beyond the realm of their culinary competence. You can imagine people's surprise, then, when they happened upon the personal project of Grade 10 Student Ved V., who was not only cooking up delicious and fresh foods from scratch, but empowering his peers to do the same.

I believe that part of being a good leader is knowing when to "do" and when to "delegate". By nature, I am really a "doer". However, I have learned through experience that almost all of the time, delegating responsibilities leads to the best outcomes.
“Doing the same thing over and over and expecting different results…" I keep this mantra in mind whenever I'm acting in a position of leadership. If something isn't working, change strategies.”

Ms. Tamara Warner is one of the foundation builders, and for a few years now she has seen her first batches of students graduate. Hired in August 2000, Ms. Warner taught Grade 1 for seven years before moving to Kindergarten, from which she never wants to leave.
“What keeps me at Meadowridge are the personal and emotional connections. I am an emotional person, and the genuine feeling of belonging is so strong here.”
Avio Diniz, Faculty
Meadowridge students are full of joy, eager to learn, natural inquiries and have genuine care about others and our environment.
“They truly exemplify the IB Learner Profile attributes wonderfully.”
Learning to live well, with others and for others, in a just community
Our Mission is woven into our everyday actions and interactions. It acknowledges the importance of positive interactions with others and in seeking to better the community as we better ourselves.
It looks beyond gender, nationality, culture, and class. It guides staff, administration, students, and families to meet responsibilities and fulfill dreams.
