MAYFIELD SENIOR SCHOOL OF THE HOLY CHILD JESUS

MAYFIELD SENIOR SCHOOL of the Holy Child Jesus


Designed for learning,

created with love

We are bold, we are insightful, we are joyful. In all that we do as Holy Child educators, we draw inspiration from our beloved Cornelia Connelly, foundress of the Society of the Holy Child Jesus. This edition of Postscripts magazine celebrates our commitment to design curriculum to “meet the wants of the age,” as Cornelia challenged us in one of her enduring teachings. Yet, all we do at Mayfield is created with love, because at the heart of Holy Child education lies our mission to show girls how much they are loved by God, who lives and acts in them in our world.

Statement of Philosophy Mayfield Senior School of the Holy Child Jesus is a Catholic, independent, college preparatory school for young women sponsored by the Society of the Holy Child Jesus. The school is committed to academic excellence within the context of Christian values. Mayfield’s philosophy is rooted in the belief that knowledge is best gained in an atmosphere of disciplined thought, personal concern and religious awareness. Mayfield fosters each student’s intellectual, spiritual, artistic, emotional, and physical gifts, thereby enabling each to make a meaningful contribution to society. Mayfield also challenges each student to reach beyond herself and render service to others.

ABOUT THE COVER Dr. Alli Akagi supervises a chemistry experiment with Emma Cadena ’20. Mayfield chemistry classes are packed with engaging lab work as part of a major overhaul of our science curriculum, designed to strengthen the foundational skills of our young scientists. 2

Meage fom the Head of School What would Cornelia Connelly do? Almost every day I ask myself this question. I think our foundress Cornelia would suggest that I simply listen. Cornelia believed in the great power of listening and famously asked herself: “Is mine a listening soul?” She believed that in order to “meet the wants of the age” one must listen not only to the wisdom of those who surround us, but to that beautiful soft voice of the Holy Child within. I think that Cornelia would very much approve of our initiatives this year, many of which were developed based on listening—especially to our incredible alumnae. We designed our programs for 21st-century learning, keeping in mind the love and joy that Cornelia created in her schools.

Alums told us that Mayfield had prepared them extremely well academically for college, but they wished they had been more intentionally prepared for “real world” issues after leaving our Mayfield cocoon. We began to ask ourselves, “What would Cornelia Connelly do?” Our new Formation of Self program addresses that need. Developed by our in-house team of experts, this four-year health, wellness and life skills curriculum strives to help our students grow into adulthood with strength. We also listened to our alums when they said they would have appreciated varied opportunities to hone leadership skills. To that end, for the first time a delegation of Mayfield students attended the National Student Diversity Leadership Conference in Anaheim. Our Campus Ministry Council members were given increased responsibilities, helping them become the faith leaders for our community. Our athletes, too, stepped up through the Athletic Leadership Council. Our alums also said they left Mayfield with great math skills and a fabulous background in biology. Yet expanded science offerings—especially in computer science—would have also been a great benefit. That insight spurred us to take a deep look at our science program, leading us to adopt a “Physics First” curriculum, with all freshmen taking conceptual physics beginning in the 2016-17 school year. The transition has gone wonderfully—even though it meant that almost half our student body studied chemistry this year! In addition we jump-started our computer science program by implementing coding across the curriculum. Every student completed at least one coding project in every class. With all the enthusiasm this created, we have enrolled two full sections of AP Computer Science for next year. As we focus during the 2018-19 school year on strengthening our Holy Child charism through the Mission Effectiveness process, we will continue to do a lot of listening and we will keep asking ourselves: What would Cornelia do? We will be relying on our entire community to help us find the answers.

With Love and Gratitude,

Kate Morin

My wife, Diana, and I are actively involved with Mayfield Senior School for one reason: our daughter, Alexandra Eisele ’14. To say our experience was tremendous would be an understatement. Alexandra, who just graduated from the University of Notre Dame, not only grew into a strong student at Mayfield, but she also thrived in its loving and nurturing environment. I know her Mayfield friendships will last a lifetime. I have always believed that you give back to those who have given to you. Mayfield helped us with the formation of the best gift of all—our confident, intelligent and loving daughter. Like so many graduates, she is working to make this world a better place. I am humbled and honored to be the chair of a wonderfully talented and committed Board of Trustees and to give back to a school that has given so much to our family. In May, Head of School Kate Morin allowed me and other board members to observe classes for a day. I saw how the charism of the Holy Child permeates a learning environment where students are encouraged to be themselves. I saw a vibrant diversity on campus that is so important to learning. I believe that students cannot be great thought leaders unless they are cognizant of, and open to, diverse ethnicities, cultures and points of view. Inside the classroom, motivated teachers provided an excellent and caring learning environment and I was inspired by student engagement. In our small classes, students supported and challenged each other in a safe and respectful space that reflected the qualities of an all-girls education. I heard a lot of laughter and saw diligent, hard work in their presentations and command of subject matter. Lastly, the beauty of the Mayfield campus continues to overwhelm me. I believe it is one of the most beautiful academic institutions in all of California. As I spent my “day in school” I couldn’t help to think how energizing it must be for students to attend a school designed for excellence in learning, yet filled with love. As I reflect on the 2017-18 school year, I would like to acknowledge Kate, our exceptional Head of School, who we are blessed to have as our loving leader. I would like to thank the administration, faculty and staff; your passion is unparalleled. To our generous donors, your remarkable support is helping to develop the next generation of women leaders of faith. I am grateful to our dedicated board members who continually guide us with wisdom. Finally, thank you to current parents for entrusting your daughters to Mayfield. I am confident you will find your experience as joyful as ours was with Alexandra. I look forward to watching your daughters, too, change our world for the better.

Sincerely,

Joe Eisele 6

What is “MISSIoN EFFECTIVENESS”? My dear friend and mentor, Sr. Barbara Mullen, SHCJ, taught me so much about the spirit of Mayfield and what it means to be a member of our Holy Child community. On my last visit with her before she died, I promised her I would remember all that she taught me and I pledged to channel her strength to keep that spirit and knowledge alive through my actions. So when Head of School Kate Morin asked me to chair the Holy Child Mission Effectiveness Steering Committee, I saw this as a message from Sr. Barbara, an opportunity to transform my promises into action. Without hesitation, I said yes.

Let me explain the Mission Effectiveness process. Every six years, each Holy Child school is asked to examine how it is meeting the seven Goals of a Holy Child education. This “Mission Effectiveness” process provides us with a framework to look at all aspects of life at Mayfield through the lens of the Holy Child philosophy that distinguishes our school. Because joy is an integral part of who we are, we will celebrate our unique identity during the 2018-19 school year with special gatherings, prayer services, and other activities that enrich our understanding and appreciation of what it means to be a Holy Child school. A team of educators from Holy Child schools across the country will help guide us through the process. Together, our Mayfield Steering Committee and the Visiting Committee will formulate a plan to ensure we retain and maintain our standing in the Holy Child Network of Schools. I have faith that the rich and diverse collective wisdom of our community—including faculty, staff, students, parents, Board of Trustee members, and alumnae—will inform our self study in a way that will guarantee we continue to live Holy Child values. There will be numerous opportunities to contribute to this important process. The Steering Committee invites all who have invested time, energy, and love in Mayfield to take an active role in the Mission Effectiveness cycle and celebrations.

With gratitude,

Ann Pibel

The oversized periodic table—that familiar tabular arrangement of chemical elements ordered by atomic numbers and electronic configurations— hangs high in Room 201 of Hayden for all students to see. And therein lies the challenge. “This atomic world, that periodic table is totally abstract—you can’t see atoms,” chemistry teacher Jim Loughrie said. “So what we have to do is teach students to think abstractly about concrete things. We have to show them how this periodic table has real applications in the physical world to solve problems.” The power duo of Mr. Loughrie, a deeply experienced high school science teacher with a penchant for classroom creativity, and Dr. Alli Akagi, a newly minted Caltech Ph.D. with exacting expectations and a passion for all-girls education, have been at the forefront of student engagement in what we are calling “The Year of Chemistry.” A peek inside Mr. Loughrie’s class shows the dynamics at work for first-time chem students. “Chemistry,” he told his students, “is like an adventure story—you think you know the plot, but be prepared for the unexpected. Think of the periodic table as your vocabulary words and equations as your sentences,” he explained. >>

Mayfield’s young chemists are really storytellers. Science curriculum overhaul brings on ‘Year of Chemistry’

2018 POSTSCRIPTS

ALL ABOUT ALLI Favorite chemical H2O. “Life is so dependent upon it. I prefer to consume it in the form of Diet Coke or coffee.”

>> Mayfield’s ‘Year of Chemistry’ continued from page 11 “The reaction that takes place is the unfolding story,” he said as the students prepared for a lab experiment. “And you are telling it through a set of symbols and equations.” The surge in chemistry classes was prompted by an overhaul of our science curriculum, designed to strengthen lab-driven courses to better prepare students for upper-division and Advanced Placement science and technology classes. For the first time last year, all freshmen were required to take Conceptual Physics. All sophomores must now take chemistry, as do juniors who are on the old science track. Next year biology will undergo an enrollment bulge. Then science class enrollment will stabilize. Three years of science, rather than two, are now required, although the majority of students take four years. Many strengthen their science course loads with additional electives. “Our goal is to take our freshmen girls and give them a very positive experience with science,” said Theresa Peters, Science Department Chair and biology teacher. “We want to remove any fears that girls can’t do science.” The freshman Conceptual Physics course lays the foundation for biology, chemistry and all other sciences. Sophomore chemistry class introduces students to understanding the world on a chemical level—as simple as calculating the amount of chemicals needed to fill a baggie until it is rigid or as complex as understanding why the coral reefs are dissolving. Or, in one class session, students learned to tell a chemical reaction story with a surprise ending. Test tubes and droppers at hand, students in Mr. Loughrie’s class mixed a strong base into a copper solution to produce a blue solid. After heating it, they were surprised to see

the solid turned black. They then added an acid and, like magic, the whole thing dissolved into a blue solution. The final step involved adding aluminum, causing a red metal to form. “Wait…What? Did we just make copper?” a student asked. At the end of the experiment, their story looked like this: Cu(NO3)2 + 2NaOH n Cu(OH)2 + 2NaNO3 Cu(OH)2 n CuO + H2O CuO + 2HCl n CuCl2 + H2O 3CuCl2 + 2Al n 3Cu + 2AlCl3 “You never really know what is going to happen, but it’s so so exciting to see everything we have learned come to life,” said Jenna Khachatourian ’20. “It’s like each formula means something and when we write it down we are saying what is happening.” The class work was a combination of oohs and ahhs, laughter and heads-down writing, or “storytelling,” as Mr. Loughrie would call it. It’s also the kind of engaging learning at the heart of Mayfield’s Holy Child educational philosophy. Sofia Avila ’20 said Mr. Loughrie’s story analogy clicked with her. “We are telling about a journey in this experiment,” she said. “All these elements are different and when we combine them we are explaining the story of their transformation...I really feel like today we took our understanding to a whole new level.” “I feel like chemistry is new and fun today,” Jenna said. “So much is happening!”

“I want to make them think like scientists.”

WHY DR. ALLI AKAGI AND MAYFIELD HAVE GOOD CHEMISTRY

Alli Akagi became all too aware that she was working in a male-dominated field while pursuing her doctorate in chemistry at the California Institute of Technology. “I noticed the women in grad school generally don’t offer answers or speak out as willingly as the men,” she said. But in a shared lab researching how small roundworms communicate through pheromones, Dr. Akagi noticed a focused and intense female colleague who held her ground with men in meetings, wasn’t afraid to speak out or ask questions—yet was kind. That scientist was Mayfield alumna Katherine Brugman ’08. And the connection between the two women served as a pivotal influence in Dr. Akagi’s decision to begin her teaching career at Mayfield. “During my demo lesson at Mayfield I saw how girls shouted out answers and weren’t afraid to ask questions,” Dr. Akagi said. “I realized that this must be how all Mayfield students are—and it felt right to me.” In Fall 2017, just months after achieving a long-held dream of earning her Ph.D., Dr. Akagi walked through the door of the Hayden 32 lab and began making her own inspirational mark on students. “Dr. Akagi definitely makes you work for your grade, but she teaches really well and she makes sure you understand the lesson,” said Lauren Robles ’20, who is a member of her advisee group. “Everyone in our group feels so comfortable talking to her. She really cares and has this way of understanding us.” Her classroom is heavy on lab work and she roams among lab tables answering a buzz of questions.

“My goal is not to make everyone want to major in chemistry; not everyone is going to be a scientist,” Dr. Akagi said. “But I want them to think like scientists. I want them to be curious explorers, thoughtful observers and critical thinkers.” Dr. Akagi said her own love of chemistry began at Tigard High School in the Portland, Ore., suburbs. Motivated by a tough, no-nonsense teacher who appealed to her competitive side, she discovered a sense of accomplishment solving chemistry equations. “I liked math and I liked solving problems. In the lab it all came together in a dynamic way,” she said. “I like being challenged.” She majored in chemistry at Lewis & Clark College and made a promise to herself. “I’m going to take my chemistry degree to the highest level,” she said. But on the way to graduate school, she embraced her passion for teaching. While an undergrad she worked as a high school chemistry tutor, finding satisfaction guiding students to that exhilarating “aha moment” of understanding. She took a twoyear detour and joined Teach for America. At age 22, she landed at Carl Schurz High School on the northwest side of Chicago, taking on the difficult job of teaching chemistry and biology to students who at times did not have enough to eat and held jobs to help support their families. Several of her students were not even close to being at grade-level math. Yet she persevered, bringing healthy snacks to class and setting individual goals for each student to improve their understanding of science concepts. While fulfilling her

two-year commitment, she simultaneously earned a master’s degree in teaching, applied to graduate school for chemistry—and was accepted to Caltech. “It was hard and a very high-stress environment,” she said. “In graduate school you have to figure out how to solve a problem that no one has the answer to— it was a big jump from teaching.” Caltech colleague, Ms. Brugman, a graduate student in the Biochemistry and Molecular Ph.D. program, recalled a particularly eloquent and precise presentation that Dr. Akagi made in her final year—one that disproved her own theory. “We all applauded in the end,” Ms. Brugman said. “I think it’s something all students can learn from—that it’s not really important to be correct initially, but to be willing to pursue the truth until you find it.” Dr. Akagi’s graduate experience galvanized her teaching goals as she aims to decrease students’ stress to be “right” all the time and increase curiosity and risk taking. “I want them to learn how to come up with solutions to problems based on evidence. So we are learning how to find evidence and how to synthesize it,” she said. “I look at these girls and say ‘I was exactly like this.’ ” Perhaps that is why as she guides lab work, Dr. Akagi’s most often-heard comments reassure and cheer on these fledging scientists: “Good job, really good work.” 2018 POSTSCRIPTS

Mayfield adds a new language requirement >JavaScript Elisa Gonzales ’19 describes how the life of a teenager is inextricably linked to the digital world.

“You are always on your phone, you are always using codes and apps, a user name,” she said. “But to actually understand what is behind it? It’s super cool. It’s empowering.” Determined to educate students to “meet the wants of the age,” as our foundress Cornelia Connelly would say, Mayfield introduced a new program critical to the 21st-century education of Elisa and her classmates. Beginning in the 2017-18 school year, every student is required to learn the fundamentals of a new language, the language of code. “Coding is another means of communication and I feel very strongly this is a language that we must teach all of our students,” said Head of School Kate Morin. “What we are doing is taking coding out of the traditional computer science silo and integrating it into classes like theology, history and art.” Creativity. Critical thinking. Logical reasoning. These are the “big picture” skills that our coding program is designed to enhance, said Melissa Tighe, Math Department Chair and Director of Innovation and Community Partnerships. “Computer coding is a tool that every student and teacher

14

POSTSCRIPTS 2018


“We integrated coding in all our classes and learned that anything you can imagine, you can basically create using simple mathematics and code.” — ELISA GONZALES ’19

is now thinking about, no matter what discipline,” Mrs. Tighe said. “What we are doing is empowering our girls to be creators, not just the end users of technology. Having this skill set will enhance their success no matter what field they enter.” Using a web application called Vidcode, students are taught the fundamentals of JavaScript and create and code their own digital video projects. The curriculum teaches the basics of code, line by line, and immediately allows students to see their learning come to life on their screen. The Vidcode platform was created by three women and is geared toward how girls learn by appealing to their creative and expressive side, and pairing it with activities they enjoy—learning to make filters, memes, text and animation.

All Mayfield teachers had immersed themselves in learning the Vidcode platform over the summer to guide students. “What made it easier was that Mrs. Warren had learned how to do the coding herself,” Brooke said. “She did her own presentation and showed us examples of what she did… It was actually easier than I thought and makes a lot of sense.” Classmates Sasha Torres ’19 and Lauren Panajotovic ’19 used advanced coding to insert edited video clips in their presentation on the importance of solidarity for the common good.

This year, students were required to code at least one video presentation in each class, integrating lessons with coding skills that quickly became a valuable, normative component of Mayfield classrooms.

“You wouldn’t think theology and computer coding go together,” Sasha said. “But this project showed how the message of the Church can be spread through technology. The connections work.”

Brooke Brody ’19 and Sara Lydon ’19 clicked on “AirPlay” during theology class and up came a vivid presentation about how the Catholic Church promotes peace.

Tylene De Vine, who teaches AP English Language, found the visual and creative components of the platform could help students better understand tone in modern poetry. Students not only had to learn how to analyze a poem, but also how to write code to reflect the tone through images, text and recordings.

A bold headline announced, “Catholic Social Teaching: Peace.” A quote from Pope Francis scrolled across the bottom of his photo. “Through the darkness of today’s conflict, each and every one of us can become a bright candle…” Not only was their assignment spot-on, said Theology Department Chair Nora Warren, but Brooke and Sara also earned high marks as the masterminds behind the original JavaScript code that created their presentation.

“Our Mayfield girls like to learn and they learn fast,” Ms. De Vine said, adding that her assignment came later in the year and students were already agile with coding concepts. This introduction to coding has provoked much interest in technology, prompting high enrollment for 2018-19 school year in AP Computer Science, a course designed for all students, not just those who are interested in math and science. “I think our Vidcode project has been a great foundation for the popularity of this course,” Mrs. Tighe said. “Students saw how computer programming projects enable them to create and communicate ideas.” Elisa and her classmates agree. “I gained insights into how technology is the newest form of selfexpression,” Elisa said. “We integrated coding in all our classes and learned that anything you can imagine, you can basically create using simple mathematics and code. It’s a true culmination of what it means to be an interdisciplinary learner.”

POSTSCRIPTS 2018


Righty tighty, lefty loosey. That was the extent of Elizabeth Nail’s technical experience when she joined the robotics team at the start of her senior year at Mayfield. “When I started I couldn’t tell a nut from a washer, and I had to chant ‘righty tighty, lefty loosey’ under my breath every time I used a screwdriver,” said Elizabeth ’18. Five months later she was travelling to Seattle with the Javabots, one of the top robotics teams in the West, which had earned a spot at a “Super Regional” competition. Thanks to a new partnership with the Girl Scouts of America and its award-winning robotics teams, eight Mayfield students have experienced transformative learning through engineering teamwork. Elizabeth said her intense curiosity to explore technology in action moved her to make the major time commitment to join the Mayfield-based team, which meets after school and on Saturdays. Plus, she had been hearing about the thrill of designing and building robots from her good friend, Kemi Ashing-Giwa ’18, a five-year member of the Girl Scouts team. “I’ve learned that design is a long, hard road, but it’s so worth it when your final mechanism works,” Elizabeth said. The Javabots built Latte, a robot, earning high scores at the FIRST Tech Challenge Regional Robotics Championships. Judged in areas including robot performance, computer programming and engineering, the competition challenges high school teams to program and build a robot that strategically completes tasks for points.

WHY GIRL SCOUTS ROBOTICS ARE A PERFECT MATCH FOR MAYFIELD In a breakthrough community partnership with the Girl Scouts of America robotics program, Mayfield has transformed the Hayden Turner Center into a dedicated, 856-square-foot robotics design space.

Elizabeth designed one part of the robot, an instrument that picks up objects. She first modeled it on software and then brought it to life by laser cutting and 3D printing parts she designed herself. “I went through four different versions, but the ultimate iteration netted us a lot of points in competition,” said Elizabeth, who will be attending UCLA as a prospective mechanical engineering major, a credit to her robotics experience. Fellow robotics rookie Annie Tighe ’19 helped by designing a REV-extrusion mechanism. “I joined the team with no real prior knowledge about robotics, but I allowed myself to dive right in and immerse myself in a world where I was learning incredible skills and meeting the coolest people ever,” Annie said. “No matter if someone is going to pursue science, being on the robotics team this year has been so rewarding and I love it so much!” Annie and her Javabots teammates said their competition experience alongside some of the brightest minds in high school engineering has inspired them to work even harder next season, with the goal of advancing to world competition.

I wouldn’t have traded that experience for the world. “My biggest take-away? Never hold yourself back!” she said. Kemi, who will be attending Harvard University and aspires to become a neuroscientist, said Mayfield’s partnership with her cherished Girl Scouts team will continue to offer “limitless opportunities” for our students. “At Mayfield, I have developed both as a student and as a person. In robotics, the intricate lessons I learn in class connect as pieces of a spatial puzzle,” Kemi said. Beyond the competition, Kemi said she has forged strong friendships during her years on the Girl Scouts team. “The best part is definitely the people— the robot is almost incidental,” she said. “The girls on the team are all brilliant and dedicated and creative, and the mentors are patient and helpful.” Kemi is confident that her Mayfield sisters will continue to find inspiration in STEM through participation in robotics. “I can state without a doubt that there are no limits to what we can do,” Kemi said.

“The thing that impressed me most was being able to talk to teams from around the country and get to know their experience,” Annie said. “Being with smart, dedicated and super fun people was such a blast and

Head of School K ate Mori sees big n advanta g e s. “It’s our miss ion to pre pare ou talented r girls into a world that rea lly need s their skills in science and technolo gy. The G irl Scouts are a pe rfect ma tch for u s.”

Students learn advanced skills in electronics, machining, operating robots, writing software and mechanical design under the guidance of mentors from Jet Propulsion Laboratory and Cisco Systems— seven of whom are female engineers.

Melissa Tighe, Mayfield’s Director of Innovation and Community Partnerships, sees transformational value in the work. “In just one year students have gained skills in cutting-edge industry tools such as SolidWorks CAD design and JavaScript programming language.”

Girl Scouts Mentor Julie Townsend, the Engineering Operations Team Chief and Deputy, Robotic Arm Systems Engineer at JPL’s Mars Science Laboratory, said Mayfield’s beautiful facilities allow the team to implement every aspect of the program—design, assembly and testing. She sees a “long, happy and productive relationship for both Girl Scouts robotics and Mayfield” and hopes to inspire many young women to consider STEM careers.

College Wisdom

Top 3 Tips for Writing a Personal Essay

COLLEGE COUNSELORS ABIGAIL SHAW and SAMANTHA PIEPER focus most of their attention on seniors applying to college and also begin work with other classes. Both are passionate advocates for students and insightful guides through the college application process.

How to Make the Big College Decision

1. Avoid using a thesaurus. 2. Speak as if you are talking out loud. Colleges want to hear your voice. 3. Make sure that the essay is about you and what matters to you, not someone or something else.

• Use your head AND your heart. • Be sure to keep your parents part of the conversation. • Visit campus, pay attention to your instincts when you’re there and ask yourself: Do I see my future friends here? Could be my second home for the next four years?

SCHOOL NURSE CATHY COTA, RN, who runs our Health Office, also teaches students how to stay healthy and how their body systems function. She brings 35 years of pediatric nursing experience, plus she’s the mom of Mayfield alums Rachel ’04 and Carolyn ’06.

Choose your online health sources wisely • Best two sites: National Institutes of Health (NIH.gov) and Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC.gov) • When in doubt, use health sites that end in .org or .gov or go straight to the specialty medical academy’s official website (e.g. American Academy of Dermatology) • Check the author’s credentials (education, experience, etc.)

Red flags!

• Websites selling products • Sites that have advertisements for unrelated products • Too-good-to-be-true promotions

even the Uber generation will appreciate knowing how to change a tire. Skip Morin, Head of School Kate Morin’s husband, volunteered to lead a hands-on demonstration for a sophomore class of soon-to-be drivers. Thanks, Mr. Morin!

Going to confession can be scary When Director of Campus Ministry Teri Gonzales announced to the Campus Ministry Council that they would be organizing a Sacrament of Reconciliation prayer service during Lent, the girls took a deep and anxious breath. “My first reaction was that I was excited to have a Reconciliation service because it’s new for Mayfield,” said Emma Weidman ’19. “But I was also a little worried if students would be open to the idea of confession.” Mayfield’s Campus Ministry Council made history when they organized the biggest-ever celebration of the Sacrament of Reconciliation. The major undertaking involved bringing 10 priests to campus, planning an inclusive service that respected the beliefs and sensitivities of all, and offering every student the option to go to confession.

20

Mrs. Gonzales said. “We are reconciling not just with God and ourselves but with one another. We hurt and harm each other and through this beautiful sacrament we are reminded not so much that we are sinful but that we can be more kind, loving and healing to one another by God’s grace and mercy.” She said renewing our awareness of the sacrament is aligned with Pope Francis’ call to celebrate mercy, not just as individuals but as a community and Church. The students’ concerns about organizing a prayer service in which they would invite classmates to confess their sins before a priest challenged them to create a teenage-friendly experience.

Students danced, made origami, watched a slide show and listened to Gospel readings and music. To ease any trepidation, the Campus Ministry Council even prepared a handy “cheat sheet” of instructions about confession.

Campus Ministry Council member Trinity Gomez ’18 said she had “mixed feelings” about the service. On one hand, her Catholic friends would have an opportunity to receive a sacrament “that is often forgotten or put off.” On the other, she and other leaders were worried that non-Catholics would feel excluded.

Mrs. Gonzales said her goal was to present the girls with a joyful experience of God’s unconditional love and mercy through this often misunderstood sacrament. She hopes to make the service part of Mayfield’s Lenten tradition.

“This affected how we planned the service because we knew there needed to be a variety of ways to reflect on the meaning of mercy,” Trinity said. “We wanted to express a universal theme that Lent is a time for inner reflection.”

“We need to shift our understanding of Reconciliation—it’s no longer sin-oriented but love-oriented and community-centered,”

Compounding their challenge, these young ministers know the Sacrament of Reconciliation is not popular.

Indeed, 70 percent of American Catholic women go to confession less than once a year or never, according to a first-of-its kind survey of U.S. Catholic women, published in the Jesuit magazine America in January 2018. Also of note, “The number of women who attend Mass and participate in the other sacraments is much lower at the younger end of the age spectrum,” the magazine said of the survey conducted by the Center for Applied Research in the Apostolate at Georgetown University. Mrs. Gonzales sensed the girls’ hesitation and unfamiliarity with the sacrament while helping them conceptualize the service. Campus Ministry leaders—Angeli De La Cruz ’18, Bella Paine ’19, Lauren Spensiero ’18, and Emma Weidman, along with others—worked for weeks on the service and when students assembled in Pike Auditorium they felt confident it would resonate with their classmates. Trinity opened with this prayer: “We have been given an opportunity to ask forgiveness for our sins, for missing the mark, for being selfish, for separating or isolating ourselves. This is an invitation to return to our merciful and loving God


Here’s how Mayfield students are trying to change that.

and to be reconciled with one another in our families and communities. God is constantly welcoming us back… and desires that we live together with mercy, kindness, joy and peace… Today let us quiet ourselves and prepare our hearts and minds to experience God through the Sacrament of Reconciliation.” A second, palm-sized cheat sheet included the “Act of Contrition” prayer for those who may have forgotten the words they memorized as children. But it also assured students that “any spontaneous and heartfelt prayer that expresses you are truly sorry for your sins” is OK, too. During the reflection time, three students played the flute, another group performed a graceful dance to contemporary music. Everyone was invited to make origami doves as a sign of mercy and healing. Inside Strub Hall and Pike Auditorium offices, priests met with all the girls who chose to confess.

“Reconciliation can actually be a really great experience, especially because we had such nice priests,” said Sara Lydon ’19. “I learned that so many girls at Mayfield do value their Catholic faith and the Sacrament of Reconciliation because so many of them chose to go.”

THANK YOU TO OUR CONFESSORS:

Trinity said the experience brought new light on the sacrament for her.

Rev. Chris Cartwright, S.J. House of Prayer

“While planning I learned that confession does not have to be scary,” she said. “I learned that the whole idea behind it is to become better, kinder people...The truth is we can receive God’s mercy by learning from our sins or the things that hold us back from becoming better people.”

Can teenagers design solutions to real-world problems? Mayfield Global Studies students show how they are

thinking

BIG

Sophomores in April Garcez’s Global Studies class are presented with weighty goals: learn and understand pressing world-wide issues, grasp current events, sharpen critical thinking and writing skills. But how does a 15-year-old take on the world in one class? These Global Studies students demonstrated what “real world” learning means when they presented their semester-long projects, a capstone assignment that called on them to create an NGO—a non-governmental organization. Gabriella Pontrelli ’20, whose mother is an immigrant, proposed an NGO she called “Jumpstart” that would help immigrant youths obtain U.S. citizenship. Brianna Perez ’20, who aspires to be an engineer and described herself as a “staunch environmentalist,” designed a campaign called “Electro” to save energy. Other students proposed organizations to improve dental care for the poor, help prevent juvenile crime and save endangered gorillas. “I’m always surprised to see the topics the students choose to research,” Mrs. Garcez said. “They are curious about everything, but their particular interests reveal their personal journeys in life.” Mrs. Garcez introduced her students to the concept of design thinking to create their NGO. The process, popularized at Stanford University’s School of Design, calls on students to think beyond textbooks by understanding problems through the eyes of those who are affected. This empathy, combined with research, leads students to define the problem, brainstorm solutions, and come up with a prototype to help solve it.

Here are some examples of the fictional NGOs that our Global Studies students created, a reflection of issues that are personally meaningful to them. Disaster Relief HurriCARE

In the context of a high school assignment, Mrs. Garcez asked her students to think of an issue they were passionate about and interview at least one person impacted by it. Based on their interviews and research, students then created their NGO, including a mission statement, business plan and budget. Ella DesHotel ’20, moved by the plight of a family member in New Orleans, created an NGO called “hurriCARE” to help families through the devastation of hurricanes. Ella’s NGO is a network among mayors in Louisiana that would enable them to distribute goods to the victims. Lauren Robles ’20 is interested in increasing the number of Latina leaders and interviewed Thelma Melendez de Santa Ana, who served in the Obama Administration as Assistant Secretary for Elementary and Secondary Education. Lauren’s paper examined the barriers Latinas face in the workplace. She created an NGO called “Leading Latinas.” Lauren said the project was rewarding. “Not only did I learn about my culture, but I’m inspired to personally make a difference by helping other Latinas become leaders,” she said. “These projects helped us to really think about the bigger picture and helped us to grasp issues in a creative way,” said Steffi Zavaleta ’20, whose love for animals prompted her to research endangered forest gorillas in Uganda. Her classmate Amanda Mar ’20 agreed. “This was really an eye-opening class and helped us see that there are bigger problems than math problems,” said Amanda. “After doing a project like this you really realize how important it is to think in unique and creative ways to solve problems.”

Maddie Lewis turns her class project into a reality Maddie Lewis ’19, a junior who took Global Studies last year, transformed her NGO assignment with “Actions Not Words” by bringing it to fruition in the community. Inspired by her AP Bio class, Maddie describes herself as “an advocate for fighting climate change.” She believes that learning to protect the environment must start at a young age. For her NGO project in April Garcez’s class, she created a fictional NGO called “KAPOW,” for Kids Awareness to Protect Our World. Maddie realized that she could actually make her NGO a reality as she began deliberating about her Girl Scout Gold Award project.

“I thought it through and Mrs. Garcez helped me,” she said. “It took a lot of planning and work, but I was able to build the curriculum based on my NGO project.” Maddie designed lessons for children introducing them to climate change, explaining extreme weather patterns and their impact on animals and food production. She made educational videos, put them on YouTube and presented her curriculum to children who participate in Families Forward Learning Center, a Pasadena social service organization. She planned four days of class sessions, including crafts and discussion topics. In a creative twist, she encouraged her young students to become like “superheroes who change the world.”

“That was the cool part for them and a good way for them to understand that by changing their habits they can make an impact at an early age,” Maddie said. “We decorated capes and each child got to take one home.” For her outstanding work, Maddie not only received her Girl Scout Gold Award, but was also singled out by regional Scout leaders for her “exceptionally inspiring” project. Maddie was nominated for the Girl Scouts National Young Women of Distinction Award, for a Gold Award project that demonstrates “measurable and sustainable impact” to address a challenge related to a national and global issue. Congratulations, Maddie!

Is the DANCE- OFF the new TERM PLAY?

Mayfield’s first-ever Class Dance-Off Contest takes hold with some high-spirited moves

In her conversations with Mayfield alumnae, Head of School Kate Morin always asks an important question: What is your best Mayfield memory? The nearly unanimous answer is Term Plays, an entire week devoted to the creation and performance of an original play by each class. The tradition ended in the early 1990s, but Mrs. Morin wanted to recreate that sense of fun, competition and school spirit that all came together in the Term Play.

Many alumnae remember the Term Play as one of their fondest Mayfield memories.

“We just can’t take a week off now, but I wanted to bring back that same sense of memory for the girls,” Mrs. Morin said. “The dance-off is inspired by our alums and something they hold very dear. I think our girls today will hold this experience very dear, too.” A new Mayfield tradition is born! (And the winner of the inaugural Spirit Week DanceOff?

Mayfield Choir member:

We sing better

because we are close friends.

The glorious voices of the Mayfield Women’s Ensemble have grown into one of the preeminent high school choirs in the nation, after winning top honors at prestigious competitions and earning accolades at music festivals that draw the best of the best in high school chorale singing. Yet ask our girls why they are so good and the first thing they all agree on: “Honestly? It’s such an incredible form of bonding to sing with people—and we sing better because we all get along,” said Michelle New ’18, a four-year choir member. “Our singing is tighter and it’s cleaner because we are close friends.” Last spring the Mayfield choir swept top honors at the prestigious WorldStrides San Francisco Heritage festival. They received the highest scores of excellence in four categories: Best Women’s Ensemble, the Adjudicators Award for a score above 90 on a 100-point scale, a Gold Award invitation to sing next year at a national competition, and the crown jewel of awards, Best Overall Choir.

The Mayfield Women’s Ensemble swept top honors at the prestigious WorldStrides San Francisco Heritage festival in April.

Mayfield earned the highest score. Also, at several choir festivals since then, including an invitation-only event at USC, adjudicators consistently praised Mayfield for its excellence and beautiful sound. Choir members said the most rewarding moment in the latest competition came after their first song, Ah! Si mon moine voulait danser, a light and fun folk piece. Mr. Alvarez, who is not known for effusive compliments, paused and took a breath. “He looked at us and whispered ‘It was beautiful,’ ” Michelle said. “I thought I was going to cry and I started blinking a lot so tears wouldn’t run down my face. At that moment we all felt so happy.” Choir members said they are inspired by Mr. Alvarez’s high standards and they strive to master challenging music typically sung by college or professional choirs. “He takes girls who have never been in choir, have never had classical training, girls with tonal issues and he makes it work,” said Carmen Mascarenhas ’18.

“I couldn’t be more proud of the girls, they were truly awesome,” said Vocal Conservatory Director Andrew Alvarez. “They sang so beautifully and were so poised—all their hard work paid off.”

Angeli De La Cruz ’18 added that girls respect Mr. Alvarez because “he will work with us until we figure out how to fix it. He does not give up on you.”

The Women’s Ensemble won the same awards in 2015, earning an invitation to compete with top choirs in Washington, D.C. Again,

The choir is planning to travel to Chicago in Spring 2019 for their third national competition. We are raising our voices for a three-peat!

Table saws, nail guns and welding torches Mayfield Technical Theatre students design and build

Christine Diaz ’18, who won this year’s Academic Award for Technical Theatre, says mastering the power saw has given her confidence.

When Melanie Ahn ’21 sees a play or watches a television show, she follows the plot but marvels at the sound and lights. She takes in every detail of the set and how it interacts with the storytelling. “The technical artistry of it all, the invisible work going on behind the scenes really excites me,” Melanie said. “Every time a light changes or a set moves is a critical part of the story.” With a shared fascination for that “invisible work,” Melanie and 11 other students are the stars of major on-campus stage productions—albeit behind the curtains, soundboards and light switches. As part of Mayfield’s signature Conservatory for the Arts curriculum, the Technical Theatre Conservatory has doubled in size over the past two years and has taken on a heightened role on campus. Under the direction of Technical Theatre Director Phillip Velasco, our students have become the official campus production team, gaining hands-on experience in virtually every activity that needs equipment turned on and off. They run the audio at Masses. They are inside the booth in Pike Auditorium designing computer-generated lighting and calibrating microphones. 28

In their most impressive work, Mayfield girls are key players in the concept, design and construction for Theatre Conservatory sets. Our Technical Theatre students are learning the precise art of measuring twice and cutting once with table saws. They can properly aim a nail gun and don masks for welding. They sand, they paint, resurface floors, raise walls and build stairs. When she first came face-to-blade with a table saw, Christine Diaz ’18 admitted “to being intimidated.” “I never thought that I could do it,” she said. “I have always thought lighting and sets were super cool, but never thought I would actually be able to design lighting and build the set...Knowing how to use these power tools has given me a lot of confidence. And it really helps me think about what it takes to bring a set to life.” Mr. Velasco is intent on teaching the girls how to build their ideas, including creating scale models, floor plans and ordering supplies. Then comes construction inside their scene shop—the former Head of School’s garage.


Spot the difference: Look closely and see how the same cleverly designed set doubled for two back-to-back spring theatre productions, Godspell and Everywoman.

Freshman Melanie Ahn ’21 is already designing what teacher Phillip Velasco describes as “college-level” set models.

Technical Theatre students painted hand-lettered reminders on the walls of their all-girl garage workshop.

Our “Women in Black” “I tell my students they don’t need a man to do any of this stuff. They can do it.” Mr. Velasco said. “They are focused, they are safe.” He said teaching the girls the basics of construction is a fundamental part of understanding set design. “If they can see it in their minds I want them to envision what it takes, materials and all, to build it.” Melanie dreams of a creative career in set design and stage management. Learning to use a chop saw, she said, is “foundational” to her technical theatre education and creativity. “Girls are actually really good with power tools,” Melanie said. “We are diligent, effective and strong.”

Not only do they build the sets and mastermind the lighting and sound for our theatre and dance productions in Pike Auditorium, our Tech Theatre Conservatory students are also the behind-thescenes audio-visual producers for major school events including: Weekly all-school Community & Assembly meetings Monthly all-school Liturgies Red and White Day Pep Rallies Junior Ring Night Mass and Ceremony Mayfield Annual Benefit Donor Appreciation Party 2018 POSTSCRIPTS

Big Top, Big Success! Mayfield steps right up at our vintage circus-themed event. When the circus rolled into town for The Greatest Show on Bellefontaine Street we stepped right up and showed our love for Mayfield, while reaching new heights of frivolity and fancy dress. We transformed the gym into a big top and guests embraced the vintage circus theme—with bearded ladies, strongmen and acrobats among us! We also honored Joyce O’Hagan Nores ’49 and Julie and Tom Condon for their decades of loving support— Mayfield would not be the school it is today without their “Actions Not Words” support of our Holy Child mission. (Read more about their contributions on the following pages.) We also shout brava! to our incredible event committee and their ringmaster, threetime Benefit Chair Chelisa Vagim, for creating such a joyful and successful night of fun and fundraising that netted over $230,000.

2018 Benefit Honoree

Joyce O’Hagan Nores ’49 Celebrating a lifetime Holy Child connection There are many things we love about Joyce O’Hagan Nores ’49—her sharp business sense, her charismatic leadership, her generous friendship, not to mention her sense of humor—she cracks an infectious grin when she points out the BMW logo glued to her walker. But most of all we love Joyce because she and her late husband, Don, have uncommonly big and giving hearts. Joyce is our alumna extraordinaire who has long embraced Mayfield as her family. And Mayfield is enriched and privileged to call Joyce our beloved daughter.

Three generations of Mayfield alumnae: Mary Hennessy Nores ’80, Joyce O’Hagan Nores ’49 and Mariah Snowden ’09

support. The circle is dedicated in memory of Mother Mary Francis, Mayfield’s Superior during Joyce’s high school years. “It was always ingrained in us as children that education was important and you give back to your community,” she said. “Don knew and understood my affinity for Mayfield and supported it.”

This year marks the 75th anniversary of Joyce’s lifelong friendship with Mayfield. She has spent 75 of her 86 years connected to Mayfield Junior and Senior Schools, beginning as a seventh grader at “We grew up feeling so valued and that is something Mayfield School in that stays with you for life. It’s that Holy Child spirit 1943. She stayed with her class of 13 girls that has kept me at Mayfield all this time.” through high school. — JOYCE O’HAGAN NORES ’49

For more than 40 years she and Don have supported Mayfield with “Actions Not Words”—through their service, generous gifts and belief in Holy Child education. During her six years on the Board of Trustees, Joyce was among the leaders who guided the Master Plan process that led to city approval of the campus transformation plan. Just like she won attendance awards in high school, Joyce never missed a city council meeting. Then, she raised her hand high and she and Don were among the first to pledge major support for the $13 million Faith in our Future capital campaign. Today, the Nores Circle in front of Pike Auditorium honors their longtime Mayfield 44

“We always felt very protected and very loved at school,” Joyce said. “We grew up feeling so valued and that is something that stays with you for life. It’s that Holy Child spirit that has kept me at Mayfield all this time.”

Wilfrid’s dating service,” which ensured no Mayfield girl would ever be without a prom date. “Mother always seemed to have this stash of Catholic boys she would fix us up with.” Joyce O’Hagan married Don Nores—a Loyola High School and Loyola Marymount University graduate—in June 1952. In 1971, Don and Joyce founded their own company, Digital Printing Systems (DPS), which grew into a national leader in the parking and transit ticket printing industry. Joyce worked alongside Don in their thriving business, returning home each day in time to be with their three children, Jim, Nancy and Brian. She is still involved in the family-run DPS. Joyce is particularly proud of her family’s three-generation legacy at Mayfield. Her daughter-in-law Mary Hennessy Nores is a member of the class of 1980 and her granddaughter Mariah Snowden ’09 received her diploma from Joyce.

Her ongoing support of the Alumnae Holy Child Scholarship program ensures that girls continue to experience the distinctive spirit and excellence of a Mayfield education.

Joyce knows firsthand that the values of a Holy Child education transcend the decades. Yes, styles change, teaching evolves, the needs of students are more diverse.

Joyce remembers the fondness and loyalty to the Sisters that every girl experienced as part of their education back in the late 1940s—a bold education that prepared young women for college and jobs while instilling loving family values. She fondly recalls “Mother

“But the moral values of love for family, your school, and respect for your friends have not changed,” Joyce said. “For all the girls, Mayfield and family are one in the same.”


2018 Benefit Honorees

Julie & Tom Condon

Honoring 30 years of transformative “Actions Not Words” service Tom Condon tells the story of how the Sr. Mary Wilfrid Gymnasium got built as if he were still sitting in that Board of Trustees meeting back in 1991. The Mayfield community was so desperate for a gym that a group of parents presented a wild idea to install a circus-like tent on the grounds. At least the girls would be shielded from the elements, they argued. Two weeks later the board voted “no” to the tent and “yes” to a new gym—thanks in large part to the generosity of Tom and his wife, Julie, whose daughter Amy ’91 attended Mayfield. Tom’s financial expertise and vision—backed by his commitment and generosity—helped propel Mayfield into one of the region’s preeminent Catholic all-girls high schools. The Condons have supported Mayfield for three decades, helping to transform our historic campus into a 21st-century school whose student population has grown by 27% since the early 1990s. Tom is the longest serving Mayfield board and board committee member, beginning his service in 1988, when Amy began her freshman year. Julie currently serves on our Board of Trustees and her insights as a woman of faith and a wise, strong and caring mother guide the board’s Committee on Mission. But the Condons’ decades-long support of Mayfield is far more than a legacy of new buildings. It’s about their quiet, loving support for the mission of a Catholic, Holy Child education. It’s about their innate gratitude and their deep imperative to give back to Catholic institutions that nurture lives of faith and goodness. As Julie said, it’s as simple as “giving back to a place that has given us so much.”

She recalls with a smile “the whole collection of wonderful moments” at Mayfield that enriched her daughter. And Tom will never forget that proud moment when, as a Mayfield board member, he handed Amy her diploma. “I have been blessed and fortunate,” Tom said. “We have been lucky enough to have the resources to give.”

organizations. He has also guided the Los Angeles Archdiocesan Finance Council and the Holy Family Parish Finance Council, and he and Julie were founding supporters of the Cathedral of Our Lady of the Angels.

The Condons’ decades-long support of Mayfield is far more than a legacy of new buildings. It’s about their quiet, loving support for the mission of a Catholic, Holy Child education.

The Condons’ leadership support during the Faith in Our Future capital campaign helped to open six new classrooms, the Student Commons, the library and a beautiful courtyard. They were lead donors in the 1997 Pike Auditorium remodel. When our Cubs needed upgraded sports facilities, Tom and Julie supported a new fitness center and dance studio in the gym. For 25 years the Condons have been top-level supporters of the annual Benefit and underwrite faculty attendance each year.

Both Julie and Tom are members of the Order of Malta and the Order of the Holy Sepulchre, and they are also recognized as a Knight and Dame of the Pontifical Order of St. Gregory the Great. We honor Julie and Tom Condon for their benevolence to Mayfield and their gracious resolve to give back.

Tom’s career and commitment to service is extraordinary. Julie’s steadfast and graceful support is legendary. Before retirement in 2003, Tom worked in the securities industry for 42 years, the last two decades at Provident Investment Counsel as Managing Director. He and Julie married in 1964, and Tom launched his career as a stock broker trainee at Dean Witter. Julie taught elementary school as they raised their children, Amy and Tom. As he grew in experience and resources, Tom shared his business acumen with the Boards of many Catholic

Endowment secures Mayfield’s future

Mayfield Senior School’s endowment funds provide long-term resources to support the sustainability of the school and ensure our future as a Catholic, Holy Child school.

Homecoming & Reunions

2018 Cornelian Award Winner

Jeanette Acosta ’04 was the “the epitome of Cornelia Connelly,” an activist, lawyer, change-maker, a warrior for those in need, said Abeni Carr ’02, who nominated her in September 2017. At Mayfield, Jeanette served as Class President and ASB Vice President. At USC she interned for Los Angeles Mayor Antonio Villaraigosa and received a Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute Fellowship in the office of Congressman Xavier Becerra. Jeanette graduated cum laude as a Presidential Scholar with a bachelor’s degree in political science and psychology from USC. She also received USC’s prestigious Laurel and Palm award for leadership, scholarship and service.

2018 Saturday, April 21

We kicked off this annual celebration of Mayfield sisterhood with a late-afternoon Mass in the Connelly Chapel in Strub Hall, followed by the presentation of the Cornelian Award for Alumna of the Year. The “Actions Not Words” contributions of this year’s two co-recipients— both Harvard grads and dedicated public servants—span generations of our alumnae (and women’s!) history. The Hon. Margaret Morrow ’68 is a trailblazer in the legal profession and Jeanette Acosta ’04†, who we lost to cervical cancer just months before the awards ceremony, was honored posthumously for her work as a social justice and civil rights warrior.

Jeanette Acosta ’04 †

Jeanette launched her public service career as an Ameri-Corps VISTA-César Chávez Fellow where she founded the Sí, Se Puede! Learning Center for Mexican immigrant children in Hollister, Calif. As a Fulbright Scholar, Jeanette researched how to improve education policy in Zacatecas, Mexico. She earned her Master in Public Policy from Harvard University’s John F. Kennedy School of Government in 2012. She served as Latino Vote Director with President Barack Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign in Iowa and then as the United Farm Workers Foundation Immigration Reform Campaign Director in Washington, D.C. Jeanette earned her J.D. from UC Hastings College of the Law and became a Judicial Law Clerk for the Honorable Anna Blackburne-Rigsby of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals.

After Mass, alumnae caught up with their classmates and former teachers over twilight cocktails on the Pergola Lawn and took “golden hour” class photos before sitting down to dinner served by Cynthia Trepanier Porter ’79 and her company, Cynthia Brooks Distinctive Catering. If you graduated in years ending in 4 or 9, we’ll see you on campus next year—contact Nicole Cosand, Director of Annual Giving and Alumnae Relations at nicole.cosand@mayfieldsenior.org to get involved in planning your reunion!

Jeanette’s parents, Frank and Maryann, her boyfriend Chris and her brother Robert were on hand to accept the award on her behalf.

POSTSCRIPTS 2018

In December 2016, Jeanette was diagnosed with Stage 4A cervical cancer, which she fought with courage. After a life dedicated to social justice, civil rights and educational equity, Jeanette died in December 2017. Her family accepted this posthumous award at homecoming Mass.

Carlene Herbert Kostiw ’54 1 For over 50 years, Carlene has taught art with passion and instinct, and she continues to inspire students in her private studio in Fresno. Many of her students have become successful in their pursuit of artistic expression. “Being an artist and educator has enriched my life tenfold. The ‘art’ of giving everything you know, from the God-given gifts bestowed upon you, is the greatest reward of purpose and peace.” Carlene has seen the richness of beauty in her hometown and captured the magnificence of Monterey and Carmel. She has suffered the loss of loved ones, battled cancer and overcome all odds of survival. “Art is what propels me forward.” Carlene’s life is reflected in the beauty, color and light of her signature watercolors. Watch a short PBS video about her current exhibit online at pbs.org; enter Carlene Kostiw in the website’s search box. Diane Tomczak ’54 2 “During the fall, my husband Jim and I traveled to Europe again. We did another ‘Road Scholar’ program for a week in Amsterdam, which greatly enhanced our appreciation of the Dutch culture, architecture and the vastness of their business empire several centuries ago. Then we spent a week in the Stuttgart, Germany area after picking up a car at the factory. There is so much history, scenery and culinary delight to absorb that a week is not enough. In October, our area in Northern California experienced the horrendous fires. Thank God our immediate neighborhood was spared, however the effects of the devastation are constantly visible and the ramifications of the losses— including more than 5,000 homes and businesses destroyed, and the unforeseen environmental consequences—will continue for many years ahead. God’s country is being tested daily.” Todd Warner Jackson ’57 3 “I 3 recently retired from my job at Bank Street College of Education in New York City. As a volunteer, I am the co-chair of the Young Reviewers committee of the Bank Street Children’s Book Committee. Children from across the United States review books that I send them and their reviews are shared with the committee. We meet once a week to review books of the current year and give an annual award for the best fiction, poetry and non-fiction books. We publish an annual ‘best list.’ For the past four years I have included students 5 from the Cornelia Connelly Center


(CCC) in Manhattan as Young Reviewers. I also arrange visits and workshops at the CCC with the authors. I’m on the far right in the photo with a group of CCC students and this year’s fiction winner, Renee Watson, who wrote the book Piecing Me Together.

Lesley Scheller ’66 5 “Recently I was asked to host a cooking demonstration for a group who purchased it at a charity auction. I had nothing to do with the planning of the event; I was only to supply the kitchen. The chef arrived and everything was fine and dandy. Then, all of a sudden, she asked out of the blue: “Did you go to Mayfield?” “Yes! How did you know?” Mayfield alum and chef Elizabeth Whitt Heuclin ’92 saw Mayfield mugs in my cupboard!” Rebecca Chute Metrano ’66 (see Jane Valde ’83 Class Note on page 60) Mary Stoebe Sheridan ’66 “The big news for me this year has been the closure of the Benedictine Sisters Monastery in Tucson, AZ, where I volunteered. The building has been sold and all the sisters moved to the motherhouse in Clyde, MO at the end of February. The community included 25 sisters when I arrived here in 2010, but was down to nine. My biggest accomplishment of the last few months has been helping with the relocation of the Monastery and Oblate libraries, probably 6,000+ books all together. The bulk of the books and shelves were donated to Benedictine University in Mesa, AZ. This has led to a discernment process for me, since I came to Tucson to volunteer with the sisters. I will still have some tasks with them: helping with the mailing of their magazine Spirit & Life, selling a small number of books on Amazon, and a great amount of work still to be done on the oral history project. I also have some writing and quilting that I want to do over the next few months. You’ll have to wait till next year to see where I end up!” Sally McFadden Gordon ’67 “I am studying at UC Davis to become a life coach. It seems a good way to give back after a great life of learning and collecting experiences. My husband, Steve, and I are still living in Napa and he is still painting beautiful pastels. His website is www.thegordongallery.com. I would always welcome any Mayfield alums to the Napa Valley and to our home.” Class of 1969 6 Once a year Victoria Howell Fuster de la Riva ’69 travels into town from Spain to visit her Pasadena family, and a group from the Class of 1969 reunite over lunch.

May she rest in peace.” — MARINA MARMOLEJO ’13, former Coats Family Scholar (pictured above with Laura Coats and Thom Schulz)

Maureen Milling Cox ’57

Our school community mourns the passing of former teacher and trustee Laura Coats, whose relationship with Mayfield Senior School extended over 40 years. She taught English and coached gymnastics at Mayfield from 1972-78, and her stepdaughters, Virginia Coats Ashworth ’74 and Nancy Coats Routh ’78, both graduated during her tenure. Laura also served on the Board of Trustees from 199298. Her late husband, Roy, was a Mayfield trustee from 1976-1982.

Later, she married Thom Schulz, and together they established the Coats Family Scholarship at Mayfield, a full-tuition scholarship that may be awarded to an individual or shared by several students. Laura and Thom were also leadership donors in the Pike Auditorium campaign and provided a lead gift to the Faith in Our Future capital campaign. Laura’s commitment to our Holy Child tradition came to life in her “Actions Not Words” support of our young women. Her final legacy gift—an endowment to fund the Coats Family Scholarship in perpetuity—will live on for generations of Mayfield students. We thank God for her generosity to our girls and her belief in the values and mission of Mayfield Senior School. 66
