Congratulations to the following students who are Freire’s Student of the Month.

May 2015

Carese Brown Name: Carese Brown
Grade 9: Carese is the epitome of success in the 9th grade. He is dedicated, hard-working, positive, cheerful, and never willing to settle for anything less than his best. He is a superstar in the classroom, having earned first honors every quarter and bragging rights to one of the highest GPAs in the 9th grade. Thank you for being a role model to all of your peers, and someone your teachers can always rely on!
Iryanna Graham Name: Iryanna Graham
Grade 10: 
Iryanna is known amongst her teachers as someone who can brighten anyone’s day. She is smart, caring, and responsible. But it all comes down to her smile… “It was one of those rare smiles with a quality of eternal reassurance in it, that you may come across four or five times in life… [It] believed in you as you would like to believe in yourself, and assured you that it had precisely the impression of you that you hoped to convey” (F. Scott Fitzgerald, The Great Gatsby). Gatsby’s got nothing on you, Iryanna!
Titiana Robichaw Name: Titiana Robichaw
Grade 11:
 Titiana Robichaw is the paradigm of a great student at Freire. There are three main avenues through which Titiana makes Freire a better school. First, she is academically minded. Not only does Titiana perform well on her own in classes, but she also is willing and capable to help those in need around her. Secondly, Titiana has excellent character. She is trustworthy, honest, well-respected by students and staff, and her laugh and kind words influence the culture for the better. Lastly, Titiana is very involved extracurricularly. She recently performed an impressive monologue about two friends that was well received by all. Thank you Titiana for making Freire a better place, you work has not gone unrecognized.
Tiffany Brown Name: Tiffany Brown
Grade 12: Tiffany Brown is the definition of class and integrity. She conducts herself with such sincerity and maturity. She is both polite and positive. It is no surprise that Tiffany is one of Freire’s most requested senior mediators and is trusted among students of all grades to be confidential and impartial. Tiffany never needs to be the center of attention. In fact, she’s not one for the spot light at all. She is a quiet yet strong leader in the classroom. Never off task, Tiffany is an example to everyone around her. We are proud and excited to watch her excel next year at the Community College of Philadelphia. Congratulations Tiffany and we hope you come back to visit.
