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

May 2015

Donte Jones Name: Donte Jones
Grade 9: Your dedication and focus in school is unparalleled. Though oftentimes overlooked, you don’t need to be the center of attention to highlight your positive qualities. Instead you strive to achieve your best by focusing on your own potential and pushing yourself to be the best you can be.
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!
Ky'mere Norman Name: Ky’mere Norman
Grade 11:
 Ky’mere has improved his scores in every single one of his classes from the first half of the year until now. His GPA for the year has increased by 6 percentage points from Semester 1. Ky’mere has managed to receive only positive write ups during the time that his grades have been improving. Ky’mere is an exemplar of how a student can achieve at a high level both behaviorally and academically at this point in the year. We are very proud of your accomplishments, Ky’mere.
Joseph Gronski Name: Joseph Gronski
Grade 12: Joseph is a perfect selection for super dragon. He works hard, is determined, asks questions when he needs help, and is respectful. Joseph’s determination goes beyond the classroom. He is a proud member of Student’s Run and his dedication to running has definitely helped him with his school work. The senior team wishes Joseph the best of luck as he moves on to Penn State next year.
