Who is the teacher behind our social media? Who is the teacher that makes our school smell heavenly? Finally, who is the teacher (besides Kari Rooney) who has the ability to recite Taylor Swift lyrics from heart? If you guessed Michelle Galles, Wakefield's very own Family and Consumer Science teacher, you would be correct. Did she write this post about herself? No, but she certainly deserves some recognition. As you can see from the photo, Mrs. Galles has a real passion for what she teaches and she inspires all students not only in the classroom but outside of it as well. As the Family, Career and Community Leaders of America club advisor and National Honor Society advisor, she helps students organize projects that have significant positive impacts on the local community. She teaches students skills that they can utilize for life, ensuring her students are well-equipped for the challenges of the real world. Her love for Family Consumer Science is contagious, igniting a fire in her students to delve deeper, question more, and strive for excellence in all they do. Today, we tip our hats to Mrs. Galles for being more than a teacher – a mentor, a motivator, and a driving force behind the success stories of many. You make the whole school shimmer!

His ability to overcome obstacles is nothing short of extraordinary, showcasing a determination that has left a lasting impact on our school community. Rubelsy’s ability to embrace new opportunities is inspiring. He has consistently demonstrated an unwavering commitment to excellence.

7th and 8th Grade Selection for January’s Student of the Month Naomi Nelson, an 8th grader, was selected as January’s student of the month for the exceptional character qualities she possesses. Teachers and staff have noticed Naomi going the extra mile to show kindness to others, whether that be holding the door open for someone, offering a hug to a friend in need, offering words of encouragement, or volunteering to do tasks that others avoid. Naomi’s upbeat attitude and optimistic outlook contribute to an uplifting school atmosphere. She has proven that a simple act of kindness can create a ripple effect throughout our school. Naomi can always be found with a smile on her face. Although Naomi has only been at Wakefield a short amount of time, her positive impact has been significant. She ensures all students feel included and she is a leader among her peers. Wakefield Community Schools is proud to call you a Trojan, Naomi!

As Christmas approaches, one of Wakefield's very own elves, Kade McWhorter, has been compiling a naughty or nice list for Santa. Mrs. Aguirre proudly displays this list on her classroom door. You may notice that his nice list is quite extensive... There are some questions as to how some individuals, such as our superintendent, ended up on the nice list, but that is for Kade to decide. Unfortunately, two students did end up on the naughty list. When asked why these two, Kade responded, "They were being naughty." Perhaps there is still time for them to turn things around. Christmas miracles do happen. So there you have it folks. If a person would like to know where he or she landed, simply reach out to Kade. Chances are that the odds are in your favor.

Feel Good Friday Although this piece of artwork is not yet complete, we believe it is worth sharing for two reasons- it highlights the talents of our students and staff here at the school. Rosa Armenta Earnest is the artist behind this art piece. She has been working hard on this project since the beginning of the school year. Keep up the great work, Rosa! Wakefield High School's art teacher, Mr. Hassler, has been around since the school's inception (just kidding, but he has been here for a long time). One of Mr. Hassler's strengths lie in his ability to encourage budding artists and provide a platform for self-discovery. Whether students are experimenting with paint, charcoal, or any other medium, he offers a supportive environment that encourages risk-taking and creative exploration. The walls of his classroom proudly display the students' work – visually stunning pieces that reflect not only technical skill but also a deep understanding of the power of art to convey emotion, tell stories, and provoke thought. As we recognize the hard work and talent of the art students, let us also celebrate the teacher who inspires, guides, and mentors the next generation of artists. Thanks for all you do, Hassler!
