Student of the Week
Week of October 25th, 2021
Downsview, for the week of October 25th, your Student of the Week is Keyanna Belfon. Keyanna is in the tenth grade at Downsview.
The criteria for this award is varied. Some recipients are involved in school clubs, have shown leadership and are mentors. Some show character in other ways. Keyanna has impressed staff at Downsview with her renewed commitment to her education. Looking back, Keyanna owns that her ninth grade year was less than wonderful. Learning online was challenging, and Keyanna fell behind. Keyanna also owns that the past is the past. Taking hold of all opportunities to move ahead, Keyanna is blazing a trail.
Hear this, from Mr Pasian, her Credit Recovery teacher: “She has had a great start to the year. She has been very conscientious so far about submitting her assignments. Keyanna is putting in a great deal of effort with regards to her course work.”
Mr Lewin adds: “Keyanna is a hard-working student who strives to achieve excellence both within and outside of the classroom. She is a positive role model for her peers.
Keep up the great work, Keyanna!”
Ms Persaud says: “Although I have only known Keyanna briefly in our English class, I can already tell her determination will ensure her immediate and future success. Congratulations on being student of the week! Keep up the good work.”
From Mr Ramnaraine: “As I get to know Keyanna, I am finding her to be such a kind, thoughtful and caring individual. Her participation, determination, and hard work in class has not gone unnoticed. Keep working hard Keyanna! Congratulations!”
Mr Lim finishes off the tributes with this: “Keyanna is never unkind to anyone, and has always demonstrated a positive attitude. I love how she supports her classmates.”
It starts with supporting yourself, advocating for your own learning, Keyanna. This, you have undertaken, changing the pattern of your success. It sounds like you are moving to the next level, supporting others. Seeing you grow will be exciting. Congratulations once again, Keyanna, on your win as Student of the Week.
