The public is being invited to help choose School District No. 42’s new slogan.

Seamus Nesling, the Maple Ridge-Pitt Meadows School District’s communications manager, said the new slogan will reflect what the district’s values and strengths are.

“A slogan should really represent where you are right now, what your values are, and what’s important,” said Nesling. “That changes over time.”

The district’s previous slogan, “Maximizing Learning,” has been in place for more than 20 years.

Nesling said he used input from administrators, teachers and parents to compile a list of slogan suggestions, which the district’s senior staff narrowed down to three finalists: “Every Child, Every Chance”; “Learning Today ... Leading Tomorrow”; and, “Anchored in Excellence.”

The public can vote on which slogan it would like to see represent the local school district on the district’s website at

Voting will be available online until June 30.

“Part of our practice has been to invite the community to be involved in decisions whenever we can,” said Nesling. “We’re all in this together.”

The new slogan will be featured along with on the district’s new logo, selected last year, on the district’s website and letterhead.

“The logo won’t be complete until we have the slogan to go underneath it,” said Nesling.
