Parent Newsletter May 2013

From the Principal: Ms. Rosemary Distaso-Libbon, Principal Dear Parents, The 2012-2013 school year is quickly drawing to a close. The seniors are, of course, counting down the remaining school days! It is hard to believe that we are already in the month of May. I pray for all of you at the end of each school year in a very particular way—especially the senior parents—who I know look at their children at this moment of transition and see the young man or woman of today, the echo of the child that once was, and at the same time the promise of what he or she will become in the future. I know that this is true for every parent, but especially for the parents of our seniors. The moment is, indeed, bittersweet. Congratulations to the Class of 2013 Valedictorians: Denice Belandres, Lisa Bell, Lauren Hugo, Dani Lee, Adriana Martin, Stephan Misak, and Melissa Villalon. We are so proud of them! The following are important dates to note: · Thursday, May 2, May Crowning Mass, 8:00 a.m., Senior Mothers’ Mass · Friday, May 3, Senior Prom at the L.A. Biltmore, Senior Ditch Day · Monday, May 6, Faculty Meeting, 8:45 a.m. start · Friday, May 10, Teacher Appreciation Day · Thursday, May 23, Baccalaureate Mass, American Martyrs Church, 7:00 p.m. · Friday, May 24, Student Holiday · Monday, May 27, Memorial Day, Holiday · Thursday, May 30, Senior Awards · Friday, May 31, Graduation, 12:30 p.m. (Grades 9-11, no classes, home study day) On Thursday, May 2, we celebrate Mary, the Mother of Jesus at our May Crowning Mass. Senior mothers will be our guests and the Mass will be offered for the intentions of all the mothers in our Bishop Montgomery community. This is always a special Mass, our seniors’ last Mass together on campus before they leave us. I hope many senior mothers will be present, but if you cannot attend, please know you will be in our prayers. I ask that you pray for our students who will sit for the Advanced Placement Examinations in May as well as for all of those students accepting leadership positions in student government for the 2013-2014 school year.


Principal cont.

I ask special prayers, as well, for our seniors, Class of 2013, as they turn their attention to their last weeks at Bishop Montgomery. We pray that they fully enjoy every graduation event, that they each make good decisions, and remain safe. During the senior assembly, the administrators met with the class and emphasized the importance of safety as well as of following parental and school rules and directives. Please be aware that Bishop Montgomery does not support, sponsor, or supervise any gatherings, trips, or parties that are not listed in the school calendar. It is important for your protection to note that any parties you may choose to host for a group of students at your home encumber you with the liability for the safety of those students attending and for their safety after they leave your home. There are so many choices for our seniors during these many events and we want to do everything we can to support their good decisions and their well-being. Life is fragile and we know that we don’t always remember that—particularly when we are young and feel invincible. Finally, thank you, parents, for your support and for sharing your children with us. You, the students, the faculty, and the staff are a daily cause of thanksgiving in my life. As we come to the end of the year, I offer this prayer for you—one that I offer for you at the end of each year with the hope that you will understand and experience God’s unconditional love. I pray that Christ will be more and more at home in your hearts, living within you as you trust in Him. May your roots go down deep into the soil of God’s marvelous love, and may you be able to feel and understand how long, how wide, how deep and how high His love really is, and to experience this love for yourselves, though it is so great that you will never see the end of it or fully understand it—and so at last you will be filled up with God Himself. –St. Paul’s letter to the Ephesians 3:17-19-

Rosemary Libbon Principal


Guidance & Curriculum Ms. Yvette Vigón-Morffi - Vice Principal - ext. 231 Mrs. Casey Dunn - Guidance/Studies Coordinator - ext. 226

With the school year quickly drawing to a close, we are now preparing for the Senior Awards Ceremony. The event will be held Thursday, May 30th at 10:00am. Student and parent invitations will be distributed and mailed, respectively, during May. For students taking AP exams during May, I want to reiterate the College Board’s policy regarding cell phones and other electronic communication devices. These items should not be brought into the testing location at all. Having the cell phone or other items turned off and stored in a backpack or pocket is not acceptable. These items should either be left at home or secured in the student’s locker. If the device is brought into the testing location, it must be turned over to the proctor with an affixed label. However, we do not want our proctors to spend valuable exam time collecting and returning these often expensive personal items. Please remind your child of these provisions and we will do the same. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to contact me. Sincerely, Casey Dunn Guidance/Studies Coordinator

Carpool Please email jhong@bmhs-la.org if you would like to include or take off a carpool request in the newsletter.

Discipline Ms. Betty Behen, Dean of Women, ext. 234 Mr. Lee Flores - Dean of Men - ext. 232

Prom Time. Prom is just around the corner. As a reminder, “the school does not permit the renting of hotel rooms or other facilities for students’ use for activities pre- or post- Bishop Montgomery dances. The renting of “party-busses” is also prohibited.... The school does not assume responsibility or liability for damages, loss of property, or injury caused when such rental agreements are incurred by students or their parents.” (Parent-Student Handbook, pg. 20). Prom Dress Attire. The dance is formal. Gentlemen are required to wear tuxes or suits. Ties are required unless dress shirts with a mandarin collar are worn. Gentlemen may not wear earrings, sunglasses, hats, gloves nor may they carry canes. Ladies may wear two pairs of earrings but may not wear earrings in the upper earlobe. Fitted dresses may not be excessively tight. Dresses should be comfortable for dancing and sitting. The slit on the dress may not exceed two inches above the knee. The length of the dress MUST BE AT THE KNEE (MAY NOT BE ABOVE THE KNEE). Sleeveless and strapless dresses are permitted provided that the bodice appropriately covers the chest and back. Backless dresses are NOT PERMITTED AND may not fall below mid-back. Ladies are reminded that the display of excessive cleavage is inappropriate and unbecoming. Dresses may not show a bare midriff or contain cutouts, which expose the torso (FRONT OR BACK). Additionally, the dress material which covers the chest to KNEE area must be opaque not transparent (mesh or chiffon style material is not permitted in this area). Dress shoes are required for ladies and gentlemen. The hotel requires that shoes remain on at all times while on the premises. Students’ attire should be appropriate, modest and in good taste. Please do not assume any liberties with these guidelines when you or (in the case of gentlemen with guest passes) your date purchase dress attire. All non-BMHS guests are required to conform to these guidelines. Anyone not adhering to the above stated guidelines will not be permitted to enter the dance, and will be sent home. In these cases the bid money will not be refunded. Freshmen may not attend the Senior Prom dance. The school reserves the right to refuse admittance to any person not properly attired. Detentions: Detentions are to be served on or before the date indicated on the violation or referral slip. It is the responsibility of the student to make alternate arrangements for transportation if a detention is to be served. Disregard for assigned detentions may result in probation and detentions take precedence over sports’ practices and school activities (Parent-Student Handbook, page 13). Seniors must serve outstanding detentions prior to the prom. Trips: Bishop Montgomery does not sponsor, condone, nor accept responsibility for trips, cruises, excursions not sanctioned by the school. There may be a current trip that may be disguised as a Bishop Montgomery “Senior Trip.” BMHS has nothing to do with organizing, sponsoring, or chaperoning any Senior trips. Any student distributing fliers that advertise these trips will be reprimanded. (Parent-Student Handbook, pg 20)


Discipline cont.

Graduation Parking: Please refrain from parking at the Little Company of Mary Parking Lot across the street and the parking lots of the neighboring businesses the day of the graduation. Vehicles parked in these parking lots are subject to being towed and the owners of those vehicles may be subjected to fines by the City of Torrance. Your cooperation will be appreciated by the community. Picking-up and Dropping-off Off-Campus: All parents should pick-up and drop-off their students on-campus. To avoid the last minute rush, we encourage you to arrive before 7:30AM. The traffic flow on Torrance Blvd. is heavier after this time and may affect how quickly you are able to exit the campus. If you decide to pick-up or drop-off your students anywhere else, please refrain from picking up or dropping off your students at our neighboring businesses or residential driveways as this creates an inconvenience for our neighbors. Please respect the property of our neighbors by refraining from moving trashcans, taking property, littering, or parking or pulling into our neighbors’ driveways. Also, please make sure to drop-off your students in areas that are safe and legal. We have received many reports that there have been BMHS parents or carpools driving recklessly on Palos Verdes Boulevard and students are being droppedoff by their parents/carpool drivers illegally by the red curb zones, in front of fire hydrants or in the middle of the street. In the interest of the safety of all pedestrians and drivers and as a courtesy to our neighbors, students should be dropped-off on campus. Students whose parents fail to comply with the pick-up and drop-off procedures will be dealt with on campus. The Torrance Police Department has also been contacted and they have informed us that they will be citing drivers along Torrance Boulevard, Henrietta and Palos Verdes Boulevard. It is essential to give our neighbors the same respect and courtesy that we expect from each other on campus. Use of Cellphone As a reminder, using the cellphone or any hand-held device is prohibited by law while driving. It is also important to remind your child of the importance of paying attention to their immediate surroundings when using their cellphone while walking or waiting to be picked up. Students should only use their cellphone when it is safe to do so.


Activities Mrs. Milana McDermott - Dean of Student Life - ext. 273

The month of May is filled with some important student activities. The first section pertains to underclassmen and the second section is outlined specifically for seniors. Please encourage your student to plan appropriately so they can participate. I hope these make for an enjoyable and memorable end to this school year!

Parking spaces for the rest of the students will be available Monday, May 20th. Parking spaces will be assigned at the student store at the time payment is made and completed application is filed. PLEASE NOTE: Due to the limited number of student parking spaces on campus, parking spaces will only be sold to students with a driver’s license (not a permit) and who have the registration information on the car they will be driving to school. Individual students will be permitted to purchase one spot each. More information will be included in the parking application. SENIORS: Specific information regarding senior events, including prom and graduation, was sent home in a detailed letter the middle of March. This information is also posted on the school website. Please pay special attention to dates and deadlines so that you do not miss out on these important activities. See Mrs. McDermott in the Activities Office if you did not receive a copy of the letter, or if you have any questions.
