"As we continue to engage our school community in clarifying and developing The Arden Way, we are investing energy into student leadership. Ms. May, after her year in Australia, shared with us how the school she taught at had proactively developed student leaders who were involved in many areas of school life. Keeping this approach in mind, we decided to implement a similar focus. Ms. May and Ms. Wolters invited grade 4 and 5 students to apply for volunteer positions as "Arden Ambassadors." Many students applied and eight students were selected for the first three months. They were invited to get to know each other more through their first task: sharing responsibility in creating the backdrop for the Christmas Concert. Ms. Lambert was very appreciative of their efforts. In the photo, the first group of Arden Ambassadors are being thanked by Ms. Lambert in our monthly assembly."
