 Message from Fr. Fallon

 

Making Headlines! 

 

Times they are a-changing! This is very evident in almost every aspect of life.  Just for a moment think of all the things that television has done to our way of life.  Then there is the Internet. It is next to impossible to call to mind all the changes that this piece of technology has brought to us ... And then there is the cell phone. You have come a long way baby. It was not too many years ago when cell phones hit the market. Then what you got was a large and cumbersome phone, surely something that you did not want to lug around with you. It surely was not meant for the ladies' purses and for the guys, it was hopeless carrying it from one place to another. But here we are in the technological revolution and the experts found a way to reduce size and now the phone fits in to a pocket.

 

Of course, as we all well know print journalism did not escape the heavy hand of change. There was a day, (your age is a dead giveaway) when you got your news from the newspaper. Yes, there was news to be had before 24 hour Internet saturation coverage but one had to read. Reading gave you a choice -- and who does not want a choice of what to turn your attention to and what to let pass you by.

 

From our study of English literature -- we learned about the genre which defines by long lists the types of literature you encounter.  I would venture to say that you never heard of a headline as a type of literature but it is and it is uniquely modern since it relies on brevity and cleverness.  It is meant to do and does do well to immediately capture attention and give us an impetus to read on.   They are important since they lead us to the heart of the article. By far the most clever of headlines are found not on the news page but, yes that is correct, on the sports page.   

 

Having been stationed in about 8 states I have gotten a flavor for headlines. I would have to say that the San Francisco Chronicle ranks near the top for clever headlines.

          

One thing that got my attention and prompted me to turn my attention to was a headline in the Chronicle on May 30, 2017.  

Although it was on the front page of that day's edition, it was not about some earthshaking event.  It was a headline about what we were all taught as children but which all too often is forgotten and that is the art of the Apology.  The Headline although hard to imagine was about behavior, it read in big, but not gigantic letters, "Apologizing seems to be a forgotten skill."  

    

Our moms loomed large in teaching us the skill of living the Christian life. As a child, whenever someone gave me something, my mother always said the same thing. "What do you say? I learned "thank you" at a very early age and thanks to her I have retained it.  But we all know it is far easier to say thank you than to say, I'm sorry. I think it is very easy for us to rationalize what we do. After all, we are educated. But education in itself does not necessarily lead to the practice of Christian virtue. Unfortunately some think that apologizing reduces our stature; makes us a kind of person who seemingly cannot stand strong.  I keep going back to that headline for a good life lesson.  Apologizing is a forgotten skill. It is far easier to cast the blame on another person or a set of circumstances rather than to stand tall and take responsibility for what took place. There will be those who will say that you can never make a headline by apologizing.  I beg to differ.  The Lord is literally present when you apologize.  It shows the mercy and compassion of the God who stands before you and that kind of behavior is catching.  The more people embrace it the bigger the headline.  Apologizing is not a totally forgotten skill and that is especially true for the members of the St. Mary's community who make headlines each time they practice the virtue of forgiveness.  

 

 

 

 Counseling & Scholarships

 

 

Senior year is a pivotal time for students and parents. Not only must students focus on completing graduation requirements, but they are also planning for life after high school. The college application process is becoming increasingly selective. It now becomes even more crucial to keep abreast of relevant requirements and deadlines. To do so, students and parents must be able to create a viable plan to see their way through this time-intensive process. As primary educators of their children, parents offer support and guidance through the college application procedure. Accordingly, the Guidance Department will offer events and services this year to inform and assist senior students and parents.

 

The Guidance Department will hold special events to support and guide seniors and their parents through the college application process:

 
1) California State University Application 

 
Wednesday, October 4th from 1:30pm - 3:00pm in the library


All students needing assistance with the California State University application are invited to attend a workshop on Wednesday, October 4th in the Van Ruiten Family Library. The SM Guidance Department and a representative from the California State University system will be available from 1:30pm to 3:00pm to help students complete the CSU application.


2) Common Application (Private/Out-of-State University) and University of California Application
Tuesday, October 31st from 2:00pm - 3:00pm in the library


All students needing assistance with the Common Application (for private universities and out-of-state universities) and the University of California application are invited to attend a workshop on Tuesday, October 31st in the Van Ruiten Family Library. Both the Guidance and English Departments will be available from 2:00pm to 3:00pm to help students.


3) The Guidance Department works diligently to promote communication with parents and students.

 

The Teleram provides information about important upcoming events. 

 

Please visit the  Guidance link on the St. Mary's High School website to stay up-to-date with all information pertaining to college planning, standardized testing and general guidance-related information.

 

The Guidance Department provides a committed and unique service to our parent and student community. We are very pleased and proud to work with you this school year. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact your child's counselor.

 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. 

  

In Mary's grace,

 

 

Kathy Smith

Principal

 

 

 Ewe Draw

 

Remember:  If you return the tickets and money early you become eligible for the 3 "Early Bird" drawings to win $100.  Students also receive $5 cash back when tickets are  turned in early. 

 

St. Mary’s annual student fundraiser EweDraw supports the school's capital improvements, student activities and financial aid. This fundraiser is a way in which we can generate the revenue necessary to run these programs without adding to tuition costs.

 

This program directly benefits student programs and students must support it to make it successful. Money collected is allocated to the following: Senior, Junior, Sophomore & Freshman class funds; Clubs; Student Activities; Financial Aid; and Special Projects.

 

Those students who do not participate in the fundraiser will be assessed the amount which is the difference between the amount each student is asked to produce ($80.00 in ticket sales) and the amount actually produced by the student. Example: A student who sells only 20 tickets at $2.00 each produces $40.00 for the fundraiser. This student would be assessed a one time charge of $40.00. If tickets or money is not turned in by the day prior to the drawing, you will be charged $100. Any charges will be added to the student’s FACTS account.

 

Refusal to participate in the EWE Draw and other fundraisers may result in the denial of scholarships and financial aid

 

 

 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!

 Yearbook Ads

 

 

Dear Class of 2018 families:

 

Senior year is an exciting one at St. Mary's High School and the 2018 Cauldron Yearbook Staff has several important reminders to share with you.


We are mailing out a letter to the families of all seniors regarding senior yearbook pictures, parent ads, the "Who is That Baby?" yearbook collage and senior quotes. 

 

Please Note:  Picture Re-Takes for Freshmen, Sophomores and Juniors will be held this Friday, September 15th in the small gym during both lunches and after school.   

 

If you did not have your picture taken at registration, please have it taken this day so that you appear in the Yearbook.

 

 The St. Mary's Yearbook staff is in the process of getting the next edition of the Cauldron off the ground. St. Marys' takes pride in what the Yearbook staff does and how it is accomplished. Year after year, our creative and hard-working staff produces an award winning book chronicling the lives of students and their time spent at St. Mary's.

 

The Cauldron cannot rely only on the purchase of yearbooks that is part of the student body fee to produce the yearbook, since Cauldron does not receive any other monies from the school.  We need the support of our advertisers to  help underwrite the cost of publishing the Cualdron.

 

We ask you to consider providing the foundation for another successful book by purchasing an ad in the St. Mary's Cauldron. Purchasing an ad in the St. Mary's Cauldron is a great way to get exposure in the community and give our staff the tools to be successful. Your ad will help underwrite the cost of book production.

 

The deadline for purchasing an ad for the 2018 yearbook is October 21.

 

Checks should be made payable to St. Mary's High School and should be addressed "Attention Yearbook." If you have any questions, please call us at 957-3340 ext. 132, Monday through Thursday.

 

Thank you for your continued support,

St. Mary's Cauldron Yearbook Stafd

 100 Years-Our Lady of Fatima

 

May 13, 2017 marks the 100th anniversary of the first appearance of Our Lady of Fatima to three poor shepard children Lucia de Jesus Santos and her cousins Francisco and Jacinta Marto from the village of Aljustrel, Portugal in the parish of Fatima.. Our Lady's message sought for people to pray for the conversion of the world and asked that the world be consecrated to her Immaculate Heart. This was part of the "secret" message given to the children.

 

Pope John Paul II, for his part, asked for the envelope containing the third part of the “secret” following the assassination attempt on 13 May 1981.

 

As is well known, after reading the message, Pope John Paul II immediately acted to consecrate the world to the Immaculate Heart of Mary and he himself composed a prayer for what he called an “Act of Entrustment”, which was to be celebrated in the Basilica of Saint Mary Major on 7 June 1981, the Solemnity of Pentecost.

 

“Mother of all individuals and peoples, you know all their sufferings and hopes. In your motherly heart you feel all the struggles between good and evil, between light and darkness, that convulse the world: accept the plea which we make in the Holy Spirit directly to your heart, and embrace with the love of the Mother and Handmaid of the Lord those who most await this embrace, and also those whose act of entrustment you too await in a particular way. Take under your motherly protection the whole human family, which with affectionate love we entrust to you, O Mother. May there dawn for everyone the time of peace and freedom, the time of truth, of justice and of hope”.

 

In order to respond more fully to the requests of “Our Lady”, the Holy Father desired to make more explicit during the Holy Year of the Redemption the Act of Entrustment of 7 May 1981, which had been repeated in Fatima on 13 May 1982. On 25 March 1984 in Saint Peter's Square, while recalling the fiat uttered by Mary at the Annunciation, the Holy Father, in spiritual union with the Bishops of the world, who had been “convoked” beforehand, entrusted all men and women and all peoples to the Immaculate Heart of Mary, in terms which recalled the heartfelt words spoken in 1981: 

 

“O Mother of all men and women, and of all peoples, you who know all their sufferings and their hopes, you who have a mother's awareness of all the struggles between good and evil, between light and darkness, which afflict the modern world, accept the cry which we, moved by the Holy Spirit, address directly to your Heart. Embrace with the love of the Mother and Handmaid of the Lord, this human world of ours, which we entrust and consecrate to you, for we are full of concern for the earthly and eternal destiny of individuals and peoples. 

 

In a special way we entrust and consecrate to you those individuals and nations which particularly need to be thus entrusted and consecrated. 

 

‘We have recourse to your protection, holy Mother of God!'  Despise not our petitions in our necessities”. 

 

The Pope then continued more forcefully and with more specific references, as though commenting on the Message of Fatima in its sorrowful fulfillment: 

 

“Behold, as we stand before you, Mother of Christ, before your Immaculate Heart, we desire, together with the whole Church, to unite ourselves with the consecration which, for love of us, your Son made of himself to the Father: ‘For their sake', he said, ‘I consecrate myself that they also may be consecrated in the truth' (Jn 17:19). We wish to unite ourselves with our Redeemer in this his consecration for the world and for the human race, which, in his divine Heart, has the power to obtain pardon and to secure reparation. 

 

The power of this consecration lasts for all time and embraces all individuals, peoples and nations. It overcomes every evil that the spirit of darkness is able to awaken, and has in fact awakened in our times, in the heart of man and in his history.

 

How deeply we feel the need for the consecration of humanity and the world—our modern world—in union with Christ himself! For the redeeming work of Christ must be shared in by the world through the Church. 

 

The present Year of the Redemption shows this: the special Jubilee of the whole Church. 

Above all creatures, may you be blessed, you, the Handmaid of the Lord, who in the fullest way obeyed the divine call! 

 

Hail to you, who are wholly united to the redeeming consecration of your Son! 

 

Mother of the Church! Enlighten the People of God along the paths of faith, hope, and love! Enlighten especially the peoples whose consecration and entrustment by us you are awaiting. Help us to live in the truth of the consecration of Christ for the entire human family of the modern world. 

 

In entrusting to you, O Mother, the world, all individuals and peoples, we also entrust to you this very consecration of the world, placing it in your motherly Heart. 

 

Immaculate Heart! Help us to conquer the menace of evil, which so easily takes root in the hearts of the people of today, and whose immeasurable effects already weigh down upon our modern world and seem to block the paths towards the future! 

  • From famine and war, deliver us. 

  • From nuclear war, from incalculable self-destruction, from every kind of war, deliver us. 

  • From sins against the life of man from its very beginning, deliver us. 

  • From hatred and from the demeaning of the dignity of the children of God, deliver us. 

  • From every kind of injustice in the life of society, both national and international, deliver us. 

  • From readiness to trample on the commandments of God, deliver us. 

  • From attempts to stifle in human hearts the very truth of God, deliver us. 

  • From the loss of awareness of good and evil, deliver us. 

  • From sins against the Holy Spirit, deliver us, deliver us. 

  • Accept, O Mother of Christ, this cry laden with the sufferings of all individual human beings, laden with the sufferings of whole societies. 

Help us with the power of the Holy Spirit to conquer all sin: individual sin and the ‘sin of the world', sin in all its manifestations. 

 

Let there be revealed, once more, in the history of the world the infinite saving power of the Redemption: the power of merciful Love! May it put a stop to evil! May it transform consciences! May your Immaculate Heart reveal for all the light of Hope!”.

 

In honor of the 100th Anniversary of the first appearance of Our Lady in Fatima, St. Mary's has placed her statue in Our Lady Queen of Angels Chapel. The St. Mary's community is invited and urged to take the time to pray a rosary for the intentions our Blessed Mother gave to the three shepherd children in 1917.

We are working to create a positive game environment for our student athletes and our student spectators. We would love to see students from every grade level involved in the campus life at St. Mary's and this is one of the best ways that we can offer such an experience. Here's what every member of The Machine will receive.

  • Free admission to all home, non-CIF games for ALL sports, all year.

  • Choice of one of three, limited edition Green Machine t-shirts in green, white, or black that can be worn to school on Fridays and, of course, to games.

  • Be eligible to take advantage of give-a ways like free food, free t-shirts, free play-off tickets, even some free play tickets and much more. 

  • Priority seating in our student section - the whole Ram Fam is welcome there!

  • Getting the most out of your high school experience and creating life-long memories. 

You can stay updated on everything Green Machine by following us on Twitter, Instagram, and Vine @SMGreenMachine. We post game updates and pictures to showcase the Rams and their fans.
