Downsview, for the week of April 10th, your Student of the Week is Rajeb T.
Rajeb is in the twelfth grade, and he is a member of our DD Program.

Rajeb, when word went out to DSS staff, a flood of responses came in! We’re going to get right to the, starting with words from Ms deBono and your class: “Rajeb joined our class in late November. Right away he began showing a very gentle, caring and helpful personality towards students and staff alike. Rajeb does not wait for people to ask him to help them; he instinctively knows what is required of him. He is very independent wants to help and please staff with a job well done. He is very patient and is not easily angered. He has a very strong personality and maintains a calm demeanor at all times even when others would probably lose their temper. He empathises with others and is willing to go out of his way to help. Rajeb is an incredible team member of our classroom and has a healthy sense of humor. He enjoys a good laugh which is very contagious to others around him. We are lucky to have you in our class and are very thankful for the good times and contribution you make to make good days great and fantastic days, super. Well done Rajeb - you deserve every ounce of this moment of fame.”

From Ms Hance: “Every morning, Rajeb comes to school with a smile on his face and a very positive attitude. He greets all teachers, staff and students cheerfully. He is ready to do his work immediately. He asks his teachers for instructions and follows them accordingly. He never complains about work or given tasks. Rajeb is always willing to help his teachers and classmates. No matter what goes on in our classroom, he keeps a positive attitude and encourages his classmates to do the same. Rajeb is a very special person and he can only be described as kind, cheerful, helpful and willing to learn. He is someone that makes everyone around him feel better. Thank you, Rajeb, for being such a nice young person.”

From Ms Ricketts: “Rajeb, you have certainly made a place for yourself at Downsview SS. Your warm, humble and helpful disposition lends you every opportunity for success. Why?

Whew! The accolades from your friends in the DD Program are wonderful, Rajeb. But, we’re not finished. You are well known to ALL at Downsview. Ms Khona was thrilled to hear about Rajeb’s win. She said: “Great! He’s wonderful!” Let’s hear more, starting with Ms Prinn: “Rajeb is an amazing student! He is so hard working. He never stops!

From Ms Pal: “Since Rajeb has come to Downsview, he is like a "ray of sunshine", as he always greets people with his beautiful smile and positive demeanor. His strong social skills expand into his willingness to participate in all activities, and help out wherever he can. An example, is his contribution in the Wizard of Oz performance, where he played a happy go-lucky munchkin. But Rajeb is far from a munchkin! He is often described as the "gentle giant". You will see Rajeb around the school working diligently in the recycle program. Don't hesitate to say hello, as he will always give you a happy response which will brighten your day!”

Rajeb works so hard with such enthusiasm , he does the recycling each and every day and also cleans all the windows. I always say we have the cleanest windows in any school. He is a pleasure to have around and when having a bad day Rajeb can brighten it for anyone.”
