Wolf's Print

Christopher Lessler

Christopher Lessler, Reporter

Christopher Lessler is a junior at Desert Mountain High School. Ever since he was born (okay, maybe not that early), he has had a pronounced passion for both reading and writing. He does not fully remember how his love for language commenced, but he does recall The Magic Treehouse being one of his childhood favorite book series (not that he actually remembers much from the plot…). He has continued to satisfy his desire to read by devouring hundreds upon hundreds of books, perhaps even thousands of them; numbers are weird and Christopher does not understand them. More recently, he has become a published writer, starting with a relatively informal school paper at his previous school. This is Christopher’s third year writing for Wolf’s Print, although he must admit that sounds a bit deceiving; he started right at the beginning of the pandemic, during his freshman year, so he has spent a year and a few months writing for Wolf’s Print thus far. During his time with the school newspaper, he has written several articles ranging from covering the state champion of a Shakespeare competition to reporting information about the course selection and scheduling processes. Christopher plans to continue writing articles for Wolf’s Print during his final two years at Desert Mountain, and hopefully obtain an editor position. After graduation, Christopher plans to abandon all those who have helped him and move to the Netherlands, where he desires to study urban planning at some random Dutch university. However, Christopher also pretends to acknowledge the importance of focusing on the present and living in the moment, and so his more immediate concerns include continuing to write for the school paper, becoming published in the mystifying realm of creative writing, and even actually making contributions to the Desert Mountain environment. If you are bored for some reason and thus wish to contact Christopher, he is best reachable at his school email, [email protected]. Yes, he checks it regularly; thank you for asking.

A NEW TYPE OF SCHOOL PREP: Before her first period of the day starts, DM English Teacher Ms. Jongewaard wipes every desk in her classroom. “For the most part, I’m always able to get it done,” Ms. Jongewaard said, though for later periods she sometimes has “to take the first couple of minutes of class.” Additionally, Ms. Jongewaard has a hand-sanitizing station at the entrance to her classroom.

STAYING SAFE: Before receiving his free breakfast, Josh Page (11) sanitizes his hands, as required by the nutrition staff. “There are definitely a lot of changes” to the meal system, he said, and “they’re helpful in keeping us safer.” During breakfast, the students are able to grab their own meals, hence the hand-sanitizing rule in order to curtail cross-contamination.

ONLINE HIJINX--Senior IB English students change hats and costumes to energize a Socratic seminar. Online learning its definitely a different style of education, so Ive had to use my time management skills to make sure I am completing all my assignment on my own time, said Jessica Keane, who adopted Mr. Shehs persona (bottom right). In terms of dealing with the changes, my friends and I are finding ways to make learning fun, from costume changes during zoom calls all the way to online baking class with each others new recipes. From top left to bottom right: Cate Jung, Mr. Sheh, Sarah Glomski, Nawal Chami, Imogen Brooks, Megan Yarnall, Katelynn Lewallen, Ella Hannah, Caroline Tetlow, Taylor Rhodes, and Jessica Keane (also as Mr. Sheh).
