Downsview Secondary School
Student of the Week
Week of February 7th, 2022
Downsview, for the week of February 7th, your Student of the Week is Dann Sagayaga. Dann is in the ninth grade at Downsview.
There are two rather special notes about Dann’s win. Notably, he is our first recipient for this semester, setting the tone of excellence and blazing a formidable trail for others to follow. Second, Dann is in the ninth grade. He has had less time than students in senior grades to show his strengths to the DSS staff. And yet, he has been noticed.
Dann, let’s get to the praise from your nominators. First, from Ms Susnik: “Dann is a motivated student who diligently completes all his work in class. When he is done with his own work he provides leadership and mentoring to his fellow students to support their learning. Dann always contributes to the class discussion and adds his own brilliant sense of humour. Congratulations on winning student of the week and good luck in semester two!”
Mr Lewin notes: “Dann Sagayaga is a hard-working student who is committed to achieving excellence both with within school and in the larger society. Dann 's strong work ethic has made him a positive role model for his peers. The Downsview school community is so proud of all that you have accomplished and we know that this will continue, Dann. Keep up the exceptional work.”
And, hear this, from Mr Lim: “Dann has been a kind and thoughtful presence in my class. His input is always appreciated!” The praise continues, from Ms Karwasra: “I have had the pleasure of teaching Dann in grade 9 ESL Science class, and truly enjoyed having him. He is strong, intelligent, and has worked hard on his assignments. He is a kind and respectful student who is always willing to help other classmates. I am proud of all that you have accomplished. Keep up the great work. Congratulations!”
Dann, you are in your first year at DSS, and you’ve shown that you are a leader-in-the making. We look forward to seeing you grow. Congratulations again on your win as Student of the Week.
