January Super STAR Student of the Month

Congratulations to Gustavo Escobar Rivera, Jr. and Lauren D'Agostino

 

Gustavo Escobar Rivera, Jr.

 

Gustavo Escobar Rivera, Jr.

  1. What are this student’s strengths?

Gustavo is not only an intelligent young man, but he is also very kind and respectful. He scored the highest benchmark score among my boys in my ESOL II classes.

 

  1. What makes this student special?

Gustavo is so special because as a student who came to LEE and the US late in the second semester he made good friends and excelled in his classes. He shows kindness to all those around him and is always willing to help others.

 

  1. Why are you proud to have this student on your campus?

Gustavo is an excellent role model to our ELL students and the general student body. The only time he has been absent is when he had to get his immunization shot records updated. He was so worried he was behind in his class, but caught up very quickly. He is respectful to me and his peers.

Lauren D’Agostino

  1. What are this student’s strengths?

Compassion, leadership, dedication, and initiative.  Lauren is very empathetic and a friend to all. In PALS class she is so excited to see her elementary school PALees and her fellow PALS. She is kind and thoughtful.

 

  1. What makes this student special?

Lauren goes out of her way to help others and make them feel special. Even if she isn’t having the best day, she still makes sure that those around her feel cared for and included. She has proven to be an exceptional first year-PAL already more than capable of taking on 2nd responsibilities. She actively volunteers whenever needed and I’m genuinely excited to help her community.

 

  1. Why are you proud to have this student on your campus?

I am proud to have Lauren represent PALS and our campus though her hard work and kindness. She does everything with a quiet determination and consistent effort. She exemplifies the best aspects of LEE students; internal motivation to better herself and her community, compassion and understanding for others, a strong work ethic, and a general positive attitude.
