Abigail M.


Downsview, it's a pleasure to announce your first Student of the Week for the second semester. For the week of February 12th,  Abigail M. is the Student of the Week.

Let's get right to the testimonials, first from Ms D'Andrea: “Abigail is a star student and a Captain of our Downsview Dance Company. She is full of positive energy and amazing dance moves. It is always a pleasure teaching and coaching Abigail because she approaches each class and practice with an open mind and consistently encourages others. She is smart, hard working, and kind. I am going to miss her very much when she graduates this year but I know she has a bright future beyond Downsview. Congrats on winning student of the week Abigail- you're awesome!”

Mr Hum adds: “I’ve had the privilege of teaching and working alongside Abigail in the DAA. Abi is a strong, confident young woman with a kind heart and a friendly personality. Over the past four years we’ve seen her grow as a leader in and around the community. With all that potential and the whole world ahead of her, there’s no doubt in my mind that Abi will do great things in the future. Congrats Abi! Keep up the hard work and success will follow.”

Mr Wallace says: “Abigail is wonderful. Her optimism is infectious; her willingness to support others is unbounded. Her dynamism makes her a go to person when something needs to get done. But she is not just dynamic - she's good. Dance, DAA, Radio, running workshops... she's there. A strong athlete, a strong student, a strong contributor, a strong leader. Awesome!:

And Ms de Jersey adds: “I was not here last semester, and friends asked if I missed Downsview. I answered that I most missed the enormous buzz and energy of being around DSS students. Abi exemplifies the most positive, the best buzz in this building. She's alive, alert, fun, smart and she pours all of this into our school. We are lucky.”

The fact that Abigail is a four-time winner of this award is the best evidence of her excellence. Abi, “A” is clearly for Awesome. Thanks for bringing your awesome-ness to all of us at Downsview. Congratulations once again on your win as Student of the Week.
