    Blessing Coleman MOD 3 7th I think! DREW FREEMAN is a fantastic creative and enthusiastic middle school to be in. In Drew freeman alot of us are focusing on our work. The work we are focusing on is h.w. classwork warm ups and exit tickets. P.S. If you want to become successful in life you need to work hard at it and apply yourself to do it.
