Downsview Secondary School
Student of the Week
Week of October 23, 2017
Downsview’s Student of the Week for the week of October 23rd, 2017 is Jordan Carde. Jordan is in the ninth grade and our first grade nine winner of the year.
How do we handle our gifts, our abilities? Do we honour them; do we offer them to others? Do we carry them humbly?
If we are not careful, we can take our gifts for granted, we can become arrogant and careless.
Days are early yet for Jordan, but the indications are that he is taking the right approach with his gifts.
Here is what Ms.Veoli says:
I have had the pleasure of interacting with Jordan on a few occasions in the library. He has always had a kind and respectful demeanor, a smile on his face, and a positive attitude. Thank you Jordan for helping to make the library a nicer space to be!
And here is what Mr. Hum, who nominated Jordan, says:
"Jordan is currently in grade 9 and has already started to get involved in the school. He shows a lot of potential as a student-athlete and a student leader in the future. Jordan is a well-rounded individual and shows his potential for leadership on and off the field. On the soccer pitch, he has earned a starting spot on the roster of the senior boys’ soccer team. His elite skill level combined with a positive energy and attitude towards the sport, makes it easy to play alongside Jordan on the pitch. In the classroom, Jordan takes initiative and encourages everyone to participate in physical activity. His ability to encourage others to get involved in sport reminds me of a more handsome version of a young Mr. Johnson in his teaching days in the Phys Ed Department. Jordan keep up the positive attitude and hard work. Great Job Son!"
Congratulations, Jordan, on your win as Student of the Week!
