Freshman of the Month – Oksana Pligina

Freshman of the Month - Oksana Pligina

Michealla Aprigliano, Editor

Oksana Pligina is this month’s Freshman of the Month. She chose FDR as her school, because of the opportunities it offered; the school has a wide variety of extra-curricular activities and AP classes to take. So far, Oksana has enjoyed her experience at FDR. She has met a lot of great and helpful teachers, made a lot of new friends, and joined clubs that interest her. She currently is in the Anime Club and, hopefully, soon will be joining the Tennis team!, In the beginning of the year, she was also part of our school play “The Iliad, The Odyssey, and All of Greek Mythology in 99 Minutes or Less.” Oksana believes that most of her teachers have motivated her to do better. They persuade her to try harder, no matter how good she thinks she already is.  One of her favorite teachers is Ms. Streeter. Oksana believes that Ms. Streeter is extremely kindhearted and motivates everyone to do their best.  She teaches Spanish in such a rigorous way that Oksana didn’t even know was possible. Oksana believes that she was chosen to be this month’s Freshman of the Month, because of her dedication to excel at school and beyond. Keep up the good work!
