During a recent Pack Time session, each Wolf Pack at St. Paul’s School completed a survey to name the student or faculty member who has visited the most countries, has lived the farthest from America, speaks the most languages, has the most pets, has the most exotic pet, has the most famous living relative, has the longest name, has the shortest name, or has the most siblings.

Pack Time is a whole-school activity during which each student is assigned to a small-group, or  “Wolf Pack”, that meets every other Tuesday and does various team-building activities.

The following survey factoids have not been confirmed as factual.

Religion teacher Austin Ashcraft has visited 23 countries, the most of any teacher or student, according to the survey. He has visited: Mexico, Ecuador, Jamaica, Portugal, Spain, Ireland, the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, Lichtenstein, Poland, the Czech Republic, Bosnia, Croatia, Greece, Ethiopia, Kenya, South Sudan, Tanzania, and the Vatican.

O’Krepki has visited: Spain, the United Kingdom, Italy, France, Belgium, Germany, Switzerland, Austria, the Netherlands, Morocco, Australia New Zealand, Costa Rica, Puerto Rico, the Bahamas, and Canada. Fleming has visited: Mexico, Italy, Germany, England, Russia, Greece, France, Spain, China, Norway, Turkey, the Netherlands Poland, Finland, Denmark, and Sweden.

Joel Fernandez has lived the furthest from the United States of any student or teacher, according to the survey. Fernandez lived in Singapore,  which is over 9,500 miles from the United States.

Junior Walden Perry knows seven programming languages, the most languages out of the St. Paul’s students and faculty. Pre-Freshman Nathan Bagnell knows the most non-programming languages in St. Paul’s. Bagnell knows English, Spanish, German, Russian, and French.

Senior Adam Fink has the most pets (not including farms) out of anyone at St. Paul’s. He has 42 pets: 20 fish, 13 finches, four dogs, three hamsters, a parakeet, and a cockatiel.

According to the survey, the most exotic pets owned by St. Paul’s students are a raccoon, a llama, and a deer. These are owned by sophomore Sam Crowton, pre-freshman Robert Nolan, and pre-freshman Cole Lopiccolo, respectively.

The Paper Wolf could not confirm any of these familial relationships.

The student with the most siblings is pre-freshman Jack Caminita, who reportedly has 12 siblings.
