2018 Summer Rams

 

Attending Summer School, going to Salesian Camp, travelling to Europe, enjoying the Hawaii trip for graduating seniors, these are some of the activities that St. Mary's Summer Rams are involved in.

 

Whether they are going abroad, going to school, helping with the many summer camps that the school offers, St. Mary's students follow the motto of our school, given to us by St. Francis de Sales:

 

"Be who you are and be that well"

 

 

 

2018 Salesian Camp

 

The Campus Ministry Team spent a week at Salesian Leadership Camp in Brooklyn, Michigan. The students  had  a tremendous impact  on the camp.

 

St. Mary's student members, Samantha Rodriguez, Karina Rocha, Spencer Loewen, John Costello, and David Okekenta had on the camp  truly exhibited themselves to be amazing leaders and role models. Several priests, staff, and students present told us how amazing the St. Mary's students were all week.

Campus Construction

 

Cortopassi Aquatics Center

 

The generosity of the Cortopassi family made it possible for St. Mary's to co nstruct a preier, top level pool center that, since its completion in 2007 has not only served St. Mary's but the surrounding community and has been the venue fo inter-collegiate and state water polo tournaments and games as well as the Stockton City League swimming championships.

 

Basso Family Tennis Complex

 

Due to generous donation by the Basso Family, the tennis complex at St. Mary's has been completely rebuilt with the courts completely redone.

 

Chapel

 

St. Mary's venerable chapel remodeling began in the summer of 2011 thanks to the generosity of the school's alumni and friends.  The remodeling has been completed and the chapel of Our Lady of the Angels again serves as the focus of the campus.

The Chase Family Fitness Center has been completed due to the generosity of the Chase family. This new building takes the place of the St. Bonaventure structure and provides a center for fitness training for the students with trainers, classroom and locker facilities.

Faculty & Staff News

 

Mr. Leonardini Celbrates 50 Years At St. Mary's

 

It was 1968 when a new teacher came to St. Mary's to teach Spanish. Mrs. Rose Leonardini has been a model of professionalism, dedication, loyalty and excellence for 50 years as she has served the St. Mary's High School community teaching, in addition to Spanish, Latin, has served many years as a moderator and is now the keystone in the Alumni Office of the School.

 

St. Mary's wishes to honor and thank Mrs. Leaonardini for being the role model and mentor to so many generations at our school. May God bless you!

 

Retirements

 

During the last forty-plus years, we have also enjoyed the presence of Brother James Dorazio, and Luigi and Karen Gherardi who are all retiring this year. They have each dedicated their entire working lives to St. Mary's High School and Catholic education. Their contributions have touched generations of students and families.

 

 

Luigi and Karen have fulfilled very important roles and have worn numerous hats over the years, and we thank them for their dedication to the mission of our school. Brother James, ("Bro James"), we thank you for your selfless service to our school, students and the SMHS community. Many of us will fondly remember your organ playing and singing in our SMHS Chapel when we attended mass. We  also want to acknowledge and thank Bill Scott who is also retiring after 19 years. Bill left the private sector to be teach at SM, he coached football and most recently was a part of the SM Rams football broadcast commentary with Paul Scheet. It is impossible to measure these individuals' contributions and we thank all of you.

 

Bro James Retiring

 

 

For over 40 years, Bro. James has been a pillar of gentle strength at St. Mary's as a teacher, mentor and as the ever-present smile in the Bro James Ram Center, Bro James has brought the Gospel message to generations of students in a quiet, humble and unassuming way, from quiet counseling to the collection jar for the missions at the checkout counter. Many are the times that students would see him quietly reciting the rosary in the Chapel of Our Lady of the Angels - prayerful and inspiring. As he prepares to retire and go to the Oblate residence in Toledo Ohio, the St. Mary's community wants to express its deep love, admiration and thanks to this great man, this gift to our school.

 

Karen Gherardi Honored

 

At the closing Mass for the 2017-2018 school year, a special recognition was given to a wonderful, dedicated and oft-times unappreciated SM Alumnus, teacher and vice-principal, Mrs. Karen Gheradi with the dedication of the Karen Gherardi Vice Principals Office. A well deserved honor for a good person.

 

We wish you all of God's blessings as you and your equally hard working husband Luigi Gherardi retire after your decades of faithrul service to our community ast St. Mary's.

Anyone that is victimized can go into any San Joaquin County McDonald's. The staff is trained to provide immediate contact with the appropriate authorities and to provide a safe space. San Joaquin County Regional Transit has a policy that anyone who is a victim of Human Trafficking may go to any bus, inform the driver who will immediately alert the police and if there is a delay will go off route in order to bring the victim to safety.

 

Vaping Issues

 

We at Saint Mary's High school are committed to educating the whole student, spiritually and morally, and with this commitment comes the responsibility to you as parents, in addressing issues that may be unfamiliar or uncomfortable to discuss, but are essential for the protection and success of our students.

 

One of these issues that has come to our attention is the use of "Juul" on and off campus. "Juuling" is a vape that looks like a flash drive, but it is essentially an e-cigarette. These can be purchased online (legally available to adults 18 and older) and can be concealed very easily. The cartridges are inserted into the device and come in a wide variety of flavors. They typically give off very little smoke, but one cartridge contains the same amount of nicotine in a full pack of cigarettes. For your reference, you can check the following website: www.juulvapor.com

 

To be clear, these devices and/or smoking are prohibited on campus and are grounds for suspension. We encourage you to have a conversation with your son(s)/daughter(s) about the addictive dangers of nicotine, as well as the possible consequences at school. We all want the best for our students in the present as well as the future, and together we can make a difference in their lives and in the greater community.

 

Thank you for your attention and cooperation.

 

Kathy Smith

Principal

 

 

Safe Home Pledge

Dear Parents,

  

We need your help. An issue of vital importance that confronts our families today is teen drinking and drug use. High school years are a time of new challenges as well as new adjustments. In a society where the allure of drug and alcohol use may be quite compelling, we, as parents must help prepare our children to meet those challenges and to make those right decisions. Looking at our own values and behaviors is a primary step.

  

What can you do? As parents you can follow these guidelines when you host a party or hear of one:

 

  • Set your ground rules with your teen before the party.

  • Establish rules for your home and/or property. It will not be a site at which alcohol/drugs will be available, tolerated and/or served to young people (those under legal age of 21).

  • Always be home when young people are visiting your home.

  • Properly supervise any and all gatherings of young people in your home.

  • Welcome other parents to call or drop-by.

  • Notify the police when planning a large party.

  • Notify your neighbors of the party.

  • Limit party attendance and set starting and ending times. 

  • What is your homework? As parents, set the following rules for yourself when your son or daughter is attending a party.

  • Be sure you know where your teenager will be.

  • Contact the parents of the party-giver.

  • Set times teens are expected to return home.

  • Avoid spontaneous "sleep-overs" when possible.

  • Encourage your child to call if they need a ride home.

 

Click here to take the  SAFE HOME PLEDGE online. We ask you to read the following pledge. If you agree to participate, your name will appear in the Tele'Ram.  Thank you.

E-Transcripts

 

eTranscripts are here!  St. Mary's High School is making the college application process easier.

 

Are you getting ready to start the college application process? St. Mary's has teamed with Parchment to make the process easier for families

 

One of the required documents you will need when applying to college is an official high school transcript, a student's academic record. St. Mary's High School has a new, online service where you can request an official high school transcript and send it to the college of your choice with just a few clicks.

 

Parchment sends your transcript securely, accurately and confidentially to any college or university.  The best part is you can request your transcript anytime from anywhere.  Just click the "order transcript" link on the SM website to visit Parchment.com.

 

Just follow these 3 easy steps to get started:

1.   Register for a free account at parchment.com/register

2.   Request your transcript

3.   Track your transcript

 

The fee for eTranscripts is $5. When registering with Parchment you will be prompted to put in your payment of choice information.

 

Sending the transcript electronically is easier, safe and saves money! Because it's online, it is processed much faster; your high school can send it instantly, and the college or university receives it immediately.  You no longer have to wonder if your transcript was sent by St. Mary's, or received by the college or university to which your child is applying.  Now you can track it all online at your account on Parchment.com.  That's peace of mind!

 

University of California campuses do not want a transcript until final grades are complete in June. CSU campuses and private and/or out of state colleges will vary. Please check with each campus and check all emails sent by the universities. Students applying via the Common Application will automatically have the initial and midyear transcripts submitted by their counselor. In June, ALL seniors must request a final transcript to be sent to the college they will be attending.

 

If you have questions about e-transcripts you can contact the appropriate school counselor or Registrar.  Don't delay!

Mass Intention Requests

 

The tradition of offering Masses for others, particularly the dead, originates in the very early Church. Inscriptions discovered on tombs in Roman catacombs of the second century evidence this practice. The Church's reasoning was well explained by Pope Leo XIII in his encyclical "Mirae caritatis" (1902) emphasizing the connection between the communion of saints with the Mass: "The grace of mutual love among the living, strengthened and increased by the sacrament of the Eucharist, flows, especially by virtue of the Sacrifice [of the Mass], to all who belong to the communion of saints. For the communion of saints is simply ... the mutual sharing of help, atonement, prayers and benefits among the faithful, those already in the heavenly fatherland, those consigned to the purifying fire, and those still making their pilgrim way here on earth. These all form one city, whose head is Christ, and whose vital principle is love. Faith teaches that although the august Sacrifice can be offered to God alone, it can nevertheless be celebrated in honor of the saints now reigning in Heaven with God, who has crowned them, to obtain their intercession for us, and also, according to apostolic tradition, to wash away the stains of those brethren who died in the Lord but without yet being wholly purified."

 

If you would like to request that Mass be offered for a particular intention, a request form can be found at this <link>

The Journey to the 150th Anniversary 

 

St. Mary's has completed its 140th year as a leading provider of Catholic education. Our  challenge today is to keep Catholic education affordable and accessible to our families. I think you would all agree that in order to be successful academically, spiritually, creatively, socially and physically. we must be financially responsible and fiscally stable.We have therefore established the Father Fallon Endowment so that current and future generations of students and their families can enjoy the benefits of a Catholic education at St. Mary’s. The Father Fallon Endowment is a permanent source of income invested for growth and stability by the St. Mary’s High School Foundation.  A maximum of 4.5% of the principal will be used for tuition assistance each year.

The Saint Mary's High School annual appeal invites your support for Saint Mary's High School on an annual basis.  We have persevered over the years to keep tuition affordable despite the reality associated with the growing costs of a Catholic education.  Your donation to the annual appeal goes towards tuition assistance to help our students who families struggle financially and who work hard to achieve academic excellence and grow in our faith filled environment.  Your gift will enable students to graduate from St. Mary’s and join the 99% of our students who pursue a higher education. In addition to the Father Fallon Endowment, our annual appeal allows for the option to give to immediate need tuition assistance. 

 

Please go to http://www.greenandwhite.org/AnnualAppeal to designate your donation to either the Father Fallon Endowment (for tuition assistance) or tuition assistance for immediate need.
