Well-liked by her teachers and peers, sophomore Paige Magistrelli is a successful student, athlete and artist whose personality brightens the day of everyone around her.
“She’s bubbly and always smiling. Always greeted me in the hallways, always delightful and friendly,” said teacher Connie King.
Magistrelli is involved in cross country and soccer, and prides herself on being a good teammate.
“She’s an amazing teammate. She’s really helpful and always happy. She always brings other people up,” said teammate and best friend Ella Kilstrom.
Magistrelli is not only a supportive teammate, but also a excellent student. Taking primarily honors and AP classes, Magistrelli balances her many extracurriculars with rigorous courses.
“She was a very good student, very conscientious and didn’t hesitate to ask questions. She always participated in class discussions. She's the kind of student that you want in one of your classes,” said King. “She was more concerned with learning then she was with her grade.”
An extracurricular she excels in, art is a field that Magistrelli is extremely passionate about. She enrolled in art classes as a child, as her mother noticed how much she enjoyed drawing.
“I’ve been doing art for seven years now. It’s been a long time, but I love it so much,” Magistrelli said.
Magistrelli now takes classes with Pat Bereskin, “Mrs. B,” and even helps to teach aspiring young artists over the summer.
