1 THREE VOICES JUNE 2013 T RIV OCIS STUDENTS, PARENTS, FACULTY MENLO-ATHERTON HIGH SCHOOL VOLUME 60, NUMBER MIDDLEFIELD ROAD, ATHERTON, CA n (650) To the Menlo-Atherton Community Welcome, class of 2017 First, I d like to welcome all of our new families and the entire class of This year has flown by, and we are now focusing our efforts on the school year and welcoming a new crop of ninth graders. While the transition to high school is a major one, many built-in supports will facilitate your child s journey at M-A. After a few short weeks, students become familiar with their new routines. By October, they are better acquainted with the campus than many of their teachers are. New families need not feel apprehensive your children are our top priority, and we will care for them well. In four short years, they will be matriculating into a wonderful variety of colleges and other postsecondary options. As in previous years, here is my short list of ways for students to ease the transition: Ø Determine the transportation route to and from school, including dropoff and pick-up points for the first few weeks. Ø Join a fall sports team: football, girls volleyball, boys and girls water polo, girls tennis, girls golf, or boys and girls cross-country. (Download the sports packet at or pick up a copy in the vice principals office.) Ø Know the location of student bathrooms. Ø Use the school planner provided to all students, and take Cornell-style notes in class. College admission results While statistics are still being finalized for the class of 2013, college admission results look very similar to past years for M-A students, who are extremely well prepared to be successful at an incredible variety of colleges across the United States. Students are still completing exit surveys, but so far it appears that M-A students had a range of college options similar to that of the past. M-A will be well represented at the UC, CSU, and community colleges; public institutions outside of California (many!); private colleges in a huge geographic spectrum; and specialty institutions (such as the arts). Quick reminders Ø Final exams begin on Monday, June 3. Our 62nd graduation ceremony is scheduled for Thursday, June 6, at 4 pm on Coach Parks Field.

4 From the PTA Why is being PTA co-president a breeze and fun? Because M-A is fortunate to have a cadre of competent committee chairs who sweat the details, get the desired result, and make it fun for everyone around them. Every committee also has several other volunteers who pitch in, enabling so many activities to occur successfully. Combine that with competent and fun officers, and the year just blows by. When all is said and done this year, the PTA will have spent thousands of volunteer hours and over $100 for each and every student to help M-A keep humming along. A big merci to our board: Ora Chaiken, Shari Conrad, Becky Flanagan, Elizabeth Katz, Jackie Macdonald, Kathy Oppenheimer, Stephanie Nisbet, and Susanna Tang. It was great to work with you. In addition to recognizing committee chairs, the PTA is honored to recognize certain individuals who are just the volunteers volunteers, as nominated by the M-A community M-A PTA Adult Service Award Recipients Bronze Bear Leadership Award: A person who goes way above and beyond, then way above and beyond again for years!

Silvia Torres-Garza, encargada del Oficina de Consejería Francine Andrade, Laura Duran, Karina Escobar-Weaver, Jason Kubo, y Lara Sandora, consejeros Graphing Calculators at M-A Graphing calculators are an integral part of math education at M-A. They are used in all classes beginning with algebra II and including AS algebra II, algebra II/trig, precalculus, AP statistics, statistics, and AP calculus AB/BC. Ninth-grade geometry students use scientific calculators in the spring semester, but some students get graphing calculators instead, knowing they will need them for algebra II. The calculators are allowed on the SAT I test, which is referred to as calculator neutral because students can use a calculator if they wish but can solve all problems without one. The other standardized tests including the SAT math subject test, AP statistics, and AP calculus (AB and BC) require graphing calculators. They are also allowed on almost all math contests. The most versatile calculators for M-A math classes are Texas Instruments TI-83+ and TI-84 series. All teacher presentations will be made with TI equipment. Please do not buy other brands such as Casio and HP. The TI-83+ and TI-84s all perform well, but there are differences in prices and functions. The TI-83+ is what many students purchase. (I would not buy a new or used TI-83.) The TI-84 offers three times the speed of the TI-83+, an improved display, more RAM, and a USB port for students who want to transfer data between their calculator and computer. TI-86s are great, but they do not do statistics and are not recommended. TI-89s will not be allowed on tests/quizzes at M-A. Prices can vary tremendously depending on the store and the time of year. Calculators will always be considerably cheaper in August and early September, when many stores such as Best Buy and Costco carry them as loss leaders and sometimes sell them at or below cost. The prices can be as much as $30 or $40 less than during the rest of the year. I do not know what prices will be this August, but the TI-83+ can be as cheap as $80 during this brief one-month window. The TI-84s will cost approximately $20 to $30 more than a TI-83+. Some students buy their calculators through ebay, where you can pay as little as $30 for a TI-83+ or $50 for a TI-84. Math teachers encourage students to check out graphing calculators from the department if they choose not to purchase them. This year over 150 students have been using graphing calculators checked out from the Math Department. If you buy a TI graphing calculator, please save the TI Technology Rewards symbol, which awards points for TI purchases. We can use these points for earning TI teacher-presentation equipment. Return the POINTS symbol to your son s or daughter s math teacher or to Mr. Whitnah in room D20, or mail it to Mr. Whitnah at 555 Middlefield Road, Atherton, CA Questions? Send them to Gregg Whitnah, Math Department chair TriVocis June

10 Freshman Challenge Day October 28, 29, and 30, 2013 Adult Volunteers Needed Next Fall at M-A! Challenge Day is coming to M-A for the tenth year, and we need your help! This freshman event, which kicks off our year-long Be the Change program, is sponsored by the M-A PTA with support from the principal, teachers, and administrative staff. The incoming freshman class will participate in this lifetime experience. Our goal is that at the end of the day, students not only will have bonded as a class, but also will have torn down old stereotypes and become inspired to live, study, and work in an environment of compassion, acceptance, and respect. Since 1987, the Challenge Day programs have touched the lives of over half a million teens nationwide. In fact, Challenge Day is the subject of the popular TV series If You Really Knew Me and was featured on the Oprah show, in the book Chicken Soup for the Teenage Soul, and in the Emmy Award winning documentary Teen Files: Surviving High School. Challenge Day is a powerful, high-energy program in which youths and adults are guided through a series of experiential learning activities. The overall goals of the program are to increase personal power and self-esteem; to shift negative peer pressure to positive peer support; and to eliminate the acceptability of teasing, violence, and all forms of oppression. The Challenge Day programs are designed to unite the members of the school and to empower them to carry the themes of the program back to the greater school population. And it works! In the poignant words of a past parent volunteer and small-group facilitator, I do believe that each time they see each other, it will remind them that they are not alone in their difficulties. I saw repeatedly throughout the day students realizing they are not the only one with various struggles. Then I saw their peers reaching out to assist. Adult participation is crucial to the success of these three days! The freshman class will be divided so that onethird attends each day, and we are looking for over 225 adult volunteers to help with this event. You can volunteer Monday, October 28, Tuesday, October 29, or Wednesday, October 30. Volunteer positions include smallgroup facilitators for four to five students (8:15 am to 3:30 pm), registration (8:00 to 9:15 am), or lunch servers (11:00 am to 1:00 pm). Everyone is welcome, whether you are a parent of a freshman or of an upperclassman. As you are making your volunteer plans for the school year, please take the time to consider making a real difference in the lives of our M-A teens in this awesome way. As previous participants, we can promise you that you, too, will walk away a changed individual. To volunteer for any of these positions, please send an to specifying the position and time for which you wish to volunteer.

11 M-A s Own PSAT/SAT Prep Hello, parents of next year s juniors, and congratulations on becoming upper-school parents. We know you are ready to assume the awesome responsibilities that go with your new status. To begin: your student should be taking the PSAT this fall, and we have already enrolled some incoming juniors in our prep class. Even if your child took the test as a sophomore, he or she should take it again as a junior: the scores are bound to improve after another year of school, and only scores from junior year may earn a Letter of Recommendation or the coveted National Merit Semifinalist standing. We will begin our prep course in mid-september, with classes on campus from 3:30 to 5:00 pm on Mondays and Tuesdays. The course runs for five weeks, ending the week the PSAT is given. Our fee is based on the number enrolled and goes from a base of $100 to a high of $225. In the fall, the fee has always been $100 because of the size of the enrollment, although we can t promise it. The actual fee is set after the students have been seated the first day; and once a student is seated, the parent or guardian is responsible for the fee. The course is aimed at juniors, and they receive priority listing. A sophomore who will have a fall sport in his or her junior year will be waitlisted as a soph-with-sports; other sophomores will be separately waitlisted and will be third in line for a seat. Sophomores do not have a compelling need to take the PSAT. We have been offering this preparation at M-A since 1980, so our longevity speaks to our ability. Our course emphasizes the techniques of test taking peculiar to this test. After five weeks, we feel students are confident and completely grounded, with proven working techniques thoroughly ingrained in their minds. Our homework assignments should not take more than an hour and a half a week, all told, and any student can spare that much time for five weeks. The parents job is to encourage the student to do the homework and to have good attendance. If there is a medical appointment or another acceptable reason for absence, the student should bring a note from home for the director. For questions or to enroll (do it soon to avoid the waiting list), call (650) or (much preferred) Jane King, director Wanted: Used Computers and Parts, Working or Not The M-A PTA needs equipment for our refurbishing and donation program. We will securely erase all information from your computers, reload them with software, and send them home with needy, hard-working students. We take anything, including old computers, memory, flash drives, monitors, keyboards, digital cameras, networking equipment, and hard disk drives. To donate one computer, or a truckload from a company that is upgrading, please contact Sue Kayton at or (650) , or visit our Web site at TriVocis June

12 Senior Awards Night: Honoring Outstanding Achievements The annual M-A Senior Awards Night will be held on Tuesday, June 4, at 7:00 pm in the Performing Arts Center. During this inspirational evening, sponsored by M-A PTA, many hard-working and talented seniors (and a smaller number of juniors) are honored for outstanding academic and extracurricular performance as well as service to the school and community. Some of the awards will be a surprise, while many will be recognition for awards already received. Students will be recognized for a wide variety of scholarships, prizes, and commendations awarded by school and community groups. Last year, more than two hundred individuals were recognized. Invitations will be mailed to families of students who will be receiving recognition. Awards to junior students will be presented early in the program (so juniors can go home to study for finals!), followed by senior awards. Refreshments will be served.

13 M-A Students at FHA-HERO Event A delegation of nine students from Menlo-Atherton excelled at the 66th Annual FHA- HERO State Leadership Meeting and State Finals of Competitive Recognition Events from April 20 to 23 in Ontario, California. FHA-HERO is the California affiliate of Future Career and Community Leaders of America. M-A s chapter participated along with chapters from sixty-five other California high schools. Three students Jade Nichols, Niesha Ford, and Ayesha Gaikwad served as voting delegates, and seven members competed in six different very competitive events. Our chef team, Sabrina Kinney and Havens Ratchye, took an impressive third place in commercial food preparation. Diana Alejandre earned second place in hospitality, tourism, and recreation for her tour guidebook of Alcatraz Island (shout out to teacher Elizabeth Snow, who taught Diana to use InDesign software). Brenda Godoy achieved third place for her presentation of an interior design for a loft apartment/ceramics studio. Lilian Flores and her beautifully decorated wedding cake met with the stiffest competition seen at the state finals. (She will show the cake at the San Mateo County Fair in June.) Liviera (Vira) Leebong, a gifted speaker, placed first in prepared speech with the topic of making the dangers of texting and driving real for teens. The trip was made possible by a generous Menlo-Atherton PTA Mini-Grant, an SB70 grant from the California Department of Education, and our Bears Lair Chapter FHA- HERO fundraising through the Grateful Bread Catering Business. Thank you to everyone who supported our Home Economics program and our Bears Lair Chapter of FHA-HERO. Mona Klein, Home Economics teacher There s still a day to order yearbooks from jostens.com for $100. After May 23, yearbooks may be purchased only for $110 cash in room I2. Seniors may pick up their yearbooks beginning at lunch on May 23, and all students may pick up yearbooks after school that day. Come to the athletic ticket office in the I wing. Students should bring their IDs and receipts. TriVocis June

14 Thank You from Your 2013 Big Bear Run Cochairs, Dana Hayse and Diana Holliday! Big Bear Hugs to all the fabulous runners, walkers, volunteers, and sponsors who helped make the 8th Annual Big Bear Run on Sunday, May 5, a huge success! This was the biggest race ever with over 1,100 registered runners and 921 finishers who came out to support M-A Athletics. The M-A Boosters granted over $120,000 for M-A s 44 athletic teams this school year, funding critically needed uniforms, basic equipment, and $70,000 in coaching stipends for approximately 770 committed student athletes. Support for the Big Bear Run and M-A Athletic Boosters is a separate and necessary addition to the donations you may have already made to your athlete s individual sports team. Individual team needs far exceed the amount any team can raise alone. In addition, many of the items funded by the Boosters are shared by several teams. Examples include the athletic trainer and equipment, electronic timing devices, canopies, and soon the new weight room. Congratulations again this year to the fastest male and female Bears, senior George Baier and junior Taylor Fortnam. Check out the race results and great Big Bear Run photos on the M-A Athletic Boosters Web site (www.m-aboosters.org). Congratulations to the lucky M-A student winners for the end-of-race drawing for an ipad Mini, Beats Headphone, and various gift cards! Thank you for the contributions of new and gently used shoes which have been donated to those in need. The race could not have happened without the help of many wonderful volunteers. The Big Bear Committee oversaw all the details such as food, logistics, T-shirts, sponsors, publicity, and race planning. Thank you to committee members Kathleen Balestra, Alison Blank, Marci Coggins, Beth Henninger, Nancy Kessler, Liz King, Corby Locke, Maryellen McCabe, Nancy McMahon, and Jill Roumeliotis. An additional seventy-five parents, students, and friends came out race day to help with setup, registration, food and water, marking the course, and cheering on the runners. Thank you to senior Jenna Scandalios for her inspiring singing of The Star Spangled Banner, Danny McCabe as the M-A Bear, Alan Perry as our Race Rabbit, Principal Zito for the race start, Michele Culhane for keeping us in our places prior to race start, Mark Culhane as the race commentator, the M-A cheerleaders for their wonderful school spirit, the M-A dance team for its great performance, and Mark Balestra, Bruce Deal, and Yosh Moriarty for the fun race photos. Thank you to the Atherton and Menlo Park Police Departments for keeping us all safe on the race course. Thank you to Jeff Child and Tom Hayse for marking the revised race course that triumphantly entered the track through the new Media Arts Building archway. A big thanks to Brien Oliver and Keith Perkins and their M-A custodial crew for all the heavy lifting in race preparations, setup, and takedown. Thank you for all the M-A neighbors for accommodating our race so graciously! Thank you to Freewheel Brewing Company for the space and equipment we used to prepare our food, Hobee s California Restaurants for the delicious coffee cake, Bianchini s Grocery for our fresh fruit, Liz King for designing the beloved Big Bear Run T-shirts, Fleet Feet Sports for our race bibs, and Occasions, Etc for our trophies and medals. Save the date for the 9th Annual Big Bear Run: Sunday, May 4, 2014 And finally to our invaluable sponsors: we could absolutely not have reached our goal without you!

15 On Sunday, May 5, the Boosters hosted the 8th Annual Big Bear Run. This great community event is the cornerstone of the Athletic Boosters fundraising efforts. Because of the generous support of the M-A community, the Boosters granted more than $120,000 in coaching stipends, uniforms, and equipment to our various sports teams. For the fifth year in a row, the efforts of all involved in athletics paid off as M-A leads the league in points toward the PAL Director s Cup. Spring sports highlights The baseball team tied for fourth in the PAL and qualified for CCS with wins in the final week of the season but lost a close one, 3-2, to San Benito in the first round. The boys tennis team won its fifth straight PAL Bay Division Championship before bowing out of the CCS in the first round. Both the girls and boys varsity track programs were at the top of the PAL, with the girls taking the team gold in the PAL finals. Girls lacrosse qualified for the WBAL playoffs, defeating Burlingame in the first round before falling to Menlo in the semifinals. In swimming, the girls varsity and girls and boys JV all placed first in the regular-season dual-meet schedule, and all took first place in the end-of-season league meet. Boys varsity was second in both. Girls varsity set five school records and two PAL records. Swimmers competed in forty-six CCS events, another school record, and the girls team finished fourth. Boys lacrosse took first place in SCVAL regular season and then won the SCVAL postseason tournament for the second year in a row, beating Menlo in the semifinals and Sacred Heart in the finals. The badminton teams and the softball team finished in the middle of their division. Congratulations to all the spring sports teams for a job well done. Seniors honored On May 22 the Boosters hosted the Spring Sports Awards Night. The event celebrated the success of all who participated in spring sports and also honored M-A s seniors. Because of their hard work, the dedication of the coaches, and the support of the school and the Boosters, more than fifteen athletes will go on to play in college. For a complete list of college-bound athletes, as well as other senior award winners, go to TriVocis June

16 Students of the Quarter Each quarter, M-A s staff and students honor students who have been nominated by staff members for going above and beyond what is expected in and out of the classroom. Although they are nominated for a variety of reasons, all the students share one quality: they are positive role models for their classmates. The following recipients for the third and fourth quarters were honored at a luncheon where they met and got to know one another, received wonderful awards, and learned what makes each of them worthy of the honor. Grade Student Nominating teacher(s) 9 Ariel Sullivan Ms. Zwicker-Sobrepena Sharon Ontiveros Ms. Payne 11 Scott Morris Ms. Charles and Ms. Besse Baylee McDonald Ms. Shloss Ryan Young Ms. Klein Christina Godinez Ms. Klein 12 Elvia Mendoza Mr. Maier Esteban Samra Ms. Otsuka Danbi Byun Ms. Lee-Gilbert Adrian Magana Ms. Lee-Gilbert Francelli Payan-Mofin Ms. Zwicker-Sobrepena Math Students of the Month Every month four math teachers each nominate one of their 150 students as Math Student of the Month based on classroom participation, effort beyond the call of duty, overall grade performance, math contest results, and other factors.

17 Leadership The sophomore class, class of 2015, recently sponsored a successful car wash to raise money for upcoming service projects. As a result, the sophomores were able to put on a carnival and BBQ for the families at Haven House. We are currently working on finding more ways to fundraise for our upcoming years at M-A. The junior class, class of 2014, is working on setting up an Amici s Night to fundraise for senior year. On top of that, the juniors will be sponsoring the reception for Senior Farewell and will work at graduation. The seniors, class of 2013, hosted a successful Prom in April and would like to thank everyone who attended. Prom s profit is allowing us to purchase the first piece of Bear Wear for our incoming Baby Bears, the class of 2017, as well as to sell our Senior Week tickets for only $5! Senior Week tickets will be on sale until next Friday, May 31, at lunch on the Green. Senior Week begins with Senior Farewell on Thursday, May 30, and ends with Graduation and Grad Night on June 6. Senior Week includes Senior Picnic and Senior Breakfast sponsored by the PTA. Information regarding Senior Week festivities and graduation requirements was given out at the mandatory senior meeting in late April.
