Kacey C.


Downsview, for the week of January 15th, it is a pleasure to announce that Kacey C. is your Student of the Week. Kacey is in the twelfth grade and he will leave Downsview as a graduate in just a few weeks.

Mr Gupta, Kacey’s Co-op teacher, started the ball rolling in terms of Kacey’s nomination. He calls Kacey a “determined, hard-working and incredibly kind person who cares deeply about his education, and about the welfare of others.” Kacey, Mr Gupta says, “will go far. He works well with others and has shown openness and flexibility. I enjoyed being Kacey’s teacher.”

Hear this, from Mr Phillips, “Kacey has to be one of Downsview's quintessential nice guys! I've had the pleasure of teaching Kacey in a couple of courses, in which he was very successful. I know that he has made many good friends at Downsview. His friendliness is only surpassed by his incredible sense of humor. He's great at taking things seriously when needed, but he is also great at helping keep things light for people who seek that. His smile is infectious and I hope he continues to smile for years to come. I wish him all the best in his future endeavors. Congrats, Kacey, on Student of the Week!”

Hear this, from Mr Hum: “Although I’ve only had the opportunity to teach Kacey for a few months last semester, I’ve come to realize that he is a gentle soul with a very kind heart. Kacey always has a smile on his face and is super friendly. His peers will tell you that he is willing to go above and beyond to help those around him. Kacey, keep up all the great work! Congrats!”

From Ms de Jersey: “I wish I’d had the pleasure of being Kacey’s teacher. I feel lucky to have met Kacey through several meetings in the Guidance area. There are people who simply radiate the essence of themselves. Kacey is such a person. It takes moments in his presence to feel his kindness, his sense of empathy and his intelligence. These qualities run deep in him. I am better for having known Kacey.”

Kacey is a perfect candidate to round out this semester’s dazzling list of Student of the Week recipients. We will return in the second semester, ready to continue to honour your excellence, Downsview. Kacey, we send you best wishes in all future endeavours. Your fine character has been noticed; you are valued at Downsview. Congratulations once again on earning the title: Student of the Week.
