FOREIGN LANGUAGE Mary Hayes, Dept. Head Frank Droney Paul EsposiK Mirriam Grodberg Peter Haggerty The Foreign Language Department at Wellesley High School is aimed at students who are planning education beyond high school. As the need for global awareness spreads, the ability to speak a second language is also necessary. For students wishing to pursue a career in business, public service, or even government, a second language is a helpful stepping stone. The languages of¬ fered; French, Spanish, Latin, German, and Greek as an in¬ dependent study, help students gain entrance to colleges who require a second language. Teachers incorporate the language lab as a second tool to help students fully com¬ prehend the sounds of a foreign language. Students who are into their third to fifth year of Spanish, French, or Ger¬ man, are eligible to participate in an exchange trip to Venezuela, France, or Germany.

SCIENCE In his 19th year as the Science Department head, Mr. Lydon has set some very important goals. " We would like all students to be scientifically literate, " says Lydon, " We are heading towards more and more students taking four years of science.” Including very thorough and well taught courses such as Biology, Chemistry, and Physics; all students taking 4 years of science will attain that scientific literacy. With trips to the primate center in Worcester, the Museum of Science, and even whale watches, the Science Department will no doubt achieve their goal Science Freaks!

MUSIC Despite the unfortunate loss of Mrs. Niese, we still have a fantastic music depart¬ ment. The band rooms and choral room are rarely empty, and a surprising number of students take part in one music group or another. In addition to the official music classes, numerous groups meet by choice to jam in the band room. Our new choral director, Mr. Dugan, does overtime and can usually be found after school or eve¬ nings in his room rehearsing with different groups or working out a song on the piano. The department wants to encourage students to follow their musical in¬ terests, and holds the philosophy that one never knows what kind of a mark a musical experience can leave on one’s life. Music is an important part of Wellesley’s curriculum and our department is a true example of the excellence that can be achieved. Mr. Droney and Mr. Dugan Rehearsal time! ART The art department at the high school is organized to offer training for the serious art student as well as the hobbyists. The department has courses in drawing, painting, sculp¬ ture, photography, ceramics, jewelry, and modern dance and, within this broad spectrum of options, the artistic student is able to discover his or her natural talents. The school is proud of the art department’s new mural that helps to beautify the school. The goal of the department is to take students’ art talents and shape them into possi¬ ble career forms.
