Community
The winter months have finally set in. Students are in the
thick of the semester and slogging through to spring break.
This is always a great time to encourage your young person
or do something special at home.
Senior Fashion Show excitement
This year’s Fashion Show is themed M-Ake Dreams Come True. The chairs—
Karen Fryling, Stephanie Nisbet, and Kathy Oppenheimer—are bringing shape
to the show, and seniors are busily engaged in rehearsals. As it does each year,
the event showcases the best about M-A and the senior class. It’s also tremendously entertaining and a great way to introduce younger families and students
to the school. See the article on page 4.
District school construction bond
The Sequoia Union High School District is considering placing a bond on the
June 2014 ballot to accommodate district-wide enrollment growth. Menlo Park
is growing at a steady clip, and M-A will begin to increase in size during the
2015–16 school year.
Our site will need additional classrooms and facilities (bathrooms, food service,
field space, chemistry and physics rooms, among other needs) by August of
2016. With two years needed to bring a large project to completion, the passage
of a bond in June would be well timed, particularly for M-A’s needs. We are
committed to reducing class sizes, maintaining a strong learning environment,
and offering the full complement of courses and programs; but we must have
the physical space to do so.
The bond also includes an allocation for land purchases and the construction of
a small high school of choice to alleviate enrollment growth at M-A.

Estimada Comunidad de Menlo-Atherton
Los meses de invierno finalmente se han instalado. Los alumnos se
encuentran en el meollo del semestre y a través de las vacaciones de
primavera. Esto siempre es un buen momento para animar a su joven o hacer
algo especial en casa.
La emoción del Desfile de Modas
El Desfile de Modas de este año tiene como tema M-Ake Dreams Come True.
Las moderadoras son Karen Fryling, Stephanie Nisbet, y Kathy Oppenheimer
y están dándole forma al espectáculo mientras que los estudiantes de 12º grado escolar están ocupados con los ensayos. Tal como cada año, el evento destaca lo mejor de M-A y de los estudiantes de 12º grado escolar—también es
bastante divertido además de ser una buenísima manera de presentar la escuela a familias jóvenes.

you know eighth-grade families who are worried about the transition to high school, ask them to join you.
Thank you to Karen Fryling, Stephanie Nisbet, and Kathy Oppenheimer for cochairing this event. We also
thank the countless volunteers who are working hard to make this event a success.
Planning for next year’s PTA board and committee chairs is underway, and M-A’s PTA needs your help. It
takes hundreds of parents to make the PTA run smoothly. If you would like to be part of the PTA volunteer community next year, please contact Juliana Andersen at [email protected]

Come join us on Saturday, March 22, for the PTA’s biggest fundraiser of the year, our annual Fashion
Show! This year’s “M-Ake Dreams Come True” will feature the senior class of 2014 modeling the dazzling fashions of the season.
Shows are held in our own Performing Arts Center at 1:00 pm, 4:00 pm, and 7:30 pm. A scrumptious
luncheon at 11:45 am includes reserved seating for the 1:00 pm show. Consider purchasing a table of
eight for lunch and watching the show with friends and family. All three shows have reserved seating,
general admission, and student/staff tickets. Watch BearNotes for an announcement when online ticket
sales begin around March 1.
The many committee chairs have been hard at work and now need your help. Scores of jobs both big
and small need volunteers the night before and day of the show. You don’t need to be the parent of
a senior to volunteer— parents of freshmen, sophomores, and juniors are strongly encouraged to
help. The funds raised by the Fashion Show support students in every grade at M-A. Sign up to volunteer at signupgenius.com/go/10C0A49A9A9292-mafashion. If you have questions, contact the volunteer
coordinator, Lee Kite, at [email protected]

English-Language Tutors Needed
Do you have two hours a week to help tutor students in class who are trying to learn English?
It’s not too late to join our team. We are always in need of more tutors, and there are students who are still waiting for a tutor!
The English Language Development program has students from many different countries and varies from year
to year, but the majority of our students speak Spanish as their native language.
M-A’s Hispanic Outreach Initiative program received the very prestigious Apple Award last year for its
achievements in engaging Hispanic parents and families in their children’s education. Because of this great success, the program will be emulated by schools across the state!
You do not need foreign-language experience. The ELD teacher will give you a plan for
each class meeting. You will work with two or three students, with the goal of helping
them improve in spoken and written English. Over the course of this semester, you will
get to know them and see their progress.
Volunteers are needed for ELD classes during one of these periods:
Wednesday, 3rd period, 11:15 am to 12:55 pm
Thursday, 2nd period, 9:40 to 11:20 am
If you are interested, please e-mail [email protected]
Garden and Landscaping Supplies Needed
A group of clubs and classes is coming together to create a multiuse garden area. The project is directed and
planned by students. The lead in the project is a class for students with disabilities. The participants are the Service Club, the Farmers’ Market Club, Pride Pals Club, the Surf Riders Club, and a local Boy Scout troop. The
woodshop will build benches, tables, and raised beds. The ceramics classes will make tiles and stepping stones to
grace the garden. The completed area will be used to display works from all the art classes. The garden will also
have a bench to honor the service dog of one of the students with severe disabilities.
Our plan is to create two adjacent spaces. The larger will be a landscaped garden featuring the bench honoring
the service dog. This wheelchair-accessible area will be open to all M-A students and will display creations from
the woodshop and ceramics classes. An adjacent fenced area will contain a food garden to supply the school’s
farmers’ market days, when fruits and vegetables are given free to students.
We need supplies:
"
"
"
"
"
"
Any kind of paving stones. (We plan mosaic-like paths made of found or donated
bricks, slabs, cobble stones, and so on.) Edging for paths and beds.
Gently used tools.
Parts for above- or below-ground watering systems. (We don’t mind a Frankenstein watering system of cobbled-together parts.)
Wood for building raised beds and a storage shed.
Lattice arches, benches, garden decorations.
We will also gladly accept expertise on any part of the project.
To donate, contact Susan Price (LIF teacher) at [email protected], or call (650) 322-5311, ext. 50525. For questions
on how to volunteer for this project, contact Andy Stuart (teacher and Service Club advisor) at [email protected]

Testing Update
For the past few years, M-A’s spring semester has been identified as the “testing season,” with our students being asked to take numerous state and national assessments. However, change is upon us in 2014, and the testing season will look quite
different this spring.
Smarter Balanced Assessment and STAR
The big change is that most students will no longer be taking STAR tests. Tenth
graders will still be assessed in life science as part of STAR, but this will be the only
remnant of that test. Replacing STAR testing will be a new program called Smarter
Balanced Assessments. In this first year, only the junior class will be assessed. Testing will take place April 7–11,
with the week’s schedule yet to be determined.
For most juniors, the Smarter Balanced Assessment will contain both English and math questions, and the results will help schools begin to align curriculum to guidelines as defined under the new Common Core state
standards. About 5% of juniors, randomly assigned, will take either an all-English or an all-math test.
The life science STAR test for tenth graders will also be administered during the week of April 7, with students
testing in their science class. Tenth graders without a science class must also take the test, and they will report to
a designated testing location.
CAHSEE
Prior to the April testing, the High School Exit Exam (CAHSEE) will be given to all sophomores on Tuesday,
March 18 (English), and Wednesday, March 19 (math). The school schedule will be slightly changed for
CAHSEE testing, as Wednesday, March 19, will not be a block day. Instead, all periods from 0 through 6 will
meet that day, with 0 period starting at 7:50 and period 1 at 8:45. Our normal Wednesday block schedule will
take place on Friday, March 21, with school beginning at 9:25 and periods 1, 3, and 5 meeting. Please make a
note of this on your calendar.
The federal No Child Left Behind legislation has established standards with regard to CAHSEE testing that all
schools must meet, including a minimum attendance requirement of 95%. We therefore expect all sophomores to
attend on March 18 and 19. For the past few years we have hit a 99% attendance mark, and we know we can do
the same this year.
In addition, performance standards have been imposed for CAHSEE, requiring students to perform at levels
defined as proficient or advanced. Teachers and students are working hard to prepare for the test, and we need
students to do their best on every question to validate this work.
A letter will be sent to parents of all sophomores explaining CAHSEE testing in more detail, but if there are
specific questions, please contact me at (650) 322-5311, ext. 50112.
Other testing
Other important testing dates to keep in mind for the spring:
"
"
"
Physical fitness testing during February and March for all freshmen students. Students who don’t pass at
least five out of the six standards will be assigned to PE in their sophomore year.
AP testing will take place during the weeks of May 5 and May 12.
Final exams for nonseniors will take place the week of June 2.

Información Actualizada de Exámenes
En los últimos años pasados, el semestre de primavera del año escolar ha sido identificado como “temporada de exámenes,” porque a nuestros estudiantes se les ha
pedido tomar numerosos exámenes estatales y evaluaciones. Sin embargo, un cambio
está sobre nosotros en 2014 y la temporada de exámenes se verá muy diferente esta
primavera.
Evaluaciones Inteligentes Balanceadas y STAR
El gran cambio es que en la mayor parte, los estudiantes no tomarán los exámenes
STAR. Estudiantes del grado diez serán evaluados en ciencias de la vida (life science)
como parte de STAR, pero este será el único examen STAR que se llevará a cabo. El reemplazo del examen STAR
será un nuevo programa llamado Evaluaciones Inteligentes Balanceadas (Smarter Balanced Assessments). En este
primer año, solo los estudiantes del grado once (11th) serán evaluados. Las Evaluaciones Inteligentes Balanceadas se
darán a los estudiantes del grado once durante la semana de abril 7–11. Cada
Para la mayoría de estudiantes del grado once la Evaluación Inteligente Balanceada tendrá preguntas de Matemáticas
e Inglés y los resultados empezaran a ayudar a las escuelas para alinear las guías del plan de estudios como está
definido bajo los nuevos estándares del estado: “Common Core State Standards.” Alrededor del 5% de los
estudiantes del grado once tomarán todo el examen en Inglés o todo en matemáticas estos serán asignados de forma
impredecible ó al azar.
El examen STAR ciencias de la vida para los estudiantes del grado diez también será administrado durante la semana
de abril 7 y los estudiantes tomarán el examen en su clase de Ciencias. Estudiantes del grado diez que no tienen clase
de Ciencias también deben tomar el examen y ellos se reportaran al lugar asignado para este examen.
CAHSEE
Antes de los exámenes de abril, el Examen de Salida (CAHSEE) se darán a todos los estudiantes del grado diez el
martes, marzo 18, de Inglés y miércoles, marzo 19, de matemáticas. El horario de clases cambiara ligeramente por el
CAHSEE. El miércoles, marzo 19, no habrá horario extendido (block day). En su lugar, todos los períodos de 0 a 6
serán ese día, empezando con período 0 a las 7:50 y período 1 a las 8:45. Nuestro miércoles normal de horario
extendido (block schedule) será el viernes, marzo 21, empezando las clases a las 9:25 con los periodos 1, 3, y 5. Por
favor tome nota de esto en su calendario.
La legislación “No Child Left Behind” promulgada por el gobierno federal ha establecido estándares con respecto al
CAHSEE que todas las escuelas deben cumplir, incluyendo un requerimiento mínimo de asistencia de 95%. Por lo
tanto nosotros esperamos que todos los estudiantes del grado diez se presenten esos dos días. En los últimos años
nosotros hemos logrado una marca de 99% en asistencia y nosotros sabemos que podemos hacer lo mismo este año.
Además, se han impuesto estándares de rendimiento, requiriendo que los estudiantes obtengan rendimiento a niveles
definidos como competente ó avanzado. Maestros y estudiantes están trabajando duro en prepararse para el examen
y nosotros necesitamos que los estudiantes hagan su mejor esfuerzo en cada pregunta para validar este trabajo.
Una carta será enviada a los padres de todos los estudiantes del grado diez explicando el examen CAHSEE más
detalladamente, pero si tiene preguntas específicas, por favor contácteme al (650) 322-5311, ext. 50112.
Otras fechas de los exámenes
Otras fechas de exámenes importantes para tener en mente en la primavera incluyen:
"
"
"
Exámenes de salud física (physical fitness) durante Febrero y Marzo para todos los estudiantes del grado nueve.
Estudiantes que no aprueban por lo menos cinco de seis estándares se les asignará la clase de educación física en
el grado diez.
Examen de colocación avanzada (AP testing) se tomarán durante las semanas de Mayo 5 y Mayo 12.
Exámenes finales para todos los estudiantes que no son del grado doce se tomarán en la semana de Junio 2.

Career Center
This spring I will miss a few days of school to visit two colleges that
appear on the college lists of M-A students, colleges I have never visited before. It’s tough to be away from the Career Center but it is definitely worthwhile!
Each year I go on college tours, sometimes on my own (with some support from the Foundation) and
often on “counselor fly-in” events sponsored by the colleges. For the fly-ins, the colleges invite anywhere from fifteen to forty-five counselors from all over the United States (and even from abroad);
they cover our airfare, hotels, meals, and much more. Sometimes several schools will collaborate on a
college tour (the Peachtree tour, for example, introduced me to several colleges in Atlanta; the BEANS
tour included five Boston-area colleges; Decemberfest included ten—count ’em!—LA-area colleges;
the Peak-to-Peak tour featured Colorado colleges; and the CRUSSH tour showed me schools in upstate
New York). Other tours focus on one college, such as those I am about to take of Linfield College in
Oregon and Evergreen in Washington.
On the college tours, we meet with students and faculty as well as admission folks and administrators.
We tour the campus, see special facilities, and learn about programs and resources. Most tours also involve visits to the surrounding area so that we can see what students would enjoy if they attended.
I return from these trips better able to identify students who might appreciate those particular colleges,
as well as better acquainted with the admission people from that college. Getting to know other college
advisors on the trips is also helpful both during the trip and after, as those people become a valuable
resource network.
In the spirit of full disclosure, I should also add that we are wined and dined on these trips, though of
course that has no impact on our willingness to talk to students about the colleges. It’s a nice perk,
though!
Helping students find a good college fit can be challenging; my visits to colleges are extremely helpful
in this process. My absences from school are difficult, but I remain available to students by e-mail and
phone while I am gone, and spring is a time of year when my absence isn’t as painful as it might be in
fall (when I regularly turn down college-tour invitations).
I just thought it might be fun for you to know a little bit about the way I have been able to visit over
two hundred colleges over the last nineteen years!

El Centro de Carreras
Esta primavera faltaré unos días a la escuela para visitar dos universidades que aparecen en la lista de
universidades de estudiantes de M-A, universidades que no había visitado antes. ¡Es difícil estar lejos del
Centro de Carreras pero definitivamente vale la pena!
10
March 2014
TriVocis
Cada año voy de visita a las universidades, a veces por mi cuanta (con algo de apoyo de la Fundación) y
a menudo en eventos “counselor fly-in” patrocinados por las universidades. Para los fly-ins, las universidades invitan entre quince y cuarenta y cinco consejeros de todos los Estados Unidos (incluso desde
el extranjero); cubren el pasaje aéreo, hoteles, y mucho más. A veces varias escuelas colaboran en las
visitas a las universidades (el Peachtree tour, por ejemplo, me introdujo a varias universidades en Atlanta; el BEANS tour incluyó cinco universidades en el área de Boston; Decemberfest incluyó diez universidades — ¡cuéntenlas!— del área de LA; el Peak-to-Peak tour destacó universidades en Colorado; y el
CRUSSH tour me demostró escuelas en el estado de Nueva York). Otros se enfocan en una universidad, tal como las visitas que voy a hacer a Linfield College en Oregon y Evergreen en Washington.
En nuestras visitas a las universidades, nos reunimos con los estudiantes y la facultad así como personas
de admisiones y administradores. Visitamos el campus, vemos las instalaciones especiales, y aprendemos sobre los programas y recursos. La mayoría de los viajes involucran visitas a las áreas de los alrededores para que podamos ver lo que los estudiantes disfrutarían si asisten.
Regreso de estos viajes con mejor capacidad de identificar estudiantes que podrían apreciar estas universidades en particular, así como mejor conocimiento de las personas en admisiones de esa universidad. Conocer a otros consejeros universitarios en estos viajes ayuda ambos en el viaje y después, ya que
esas personas se convierten en una red de recursos valiosa.
En el espíritu de la divulgación completa, también debo agregar que cenamos en buenos restaurantes en
estos viajes, por supuesto eso no impacta nuestra voluntad de hablar con los estudiantes sobre las universidades. ¡Aunque es un buen beneficio!
Ayudar a los estudiantes a encontrar una universidad que encaje puede ser desafiante; mis visitas a las
universidades son de gran ayuda en este proceso. Mis ausencias de la escuela son difíciles, pero me
mantengo disponible para los estudiantes por correo electrónico o teléfono mientras estoy ausente, y la
primavera es el tiempo cuando mis ausencias no son tan dolorosas como en el otoño (cuando regularmente rechazo invitaciones a las universidades).
¡Pensé que sería divertido que ustedes supieran un poco de la forma en que he podido visitar más de
doscientas universidades en los último diecinueve años!

National Honor Society
M-A’s National Honor Society student leaders visited all English classes in February to share the application and
selection process for the 2014 inductees to M-A’s National Honor Society. Final applications are due to Mr.
Florio on March 28, and the induction ceremony will be April 9 at 5:30 pm in the M-A Library. Students should
contact Mr. Florio with any questions.

CALIFORNIA SCHOLARSHIP FEDERATION
The California Scholarship Foundation promotes and recognizes high standards of scholarship in California
schools. (See csf-cjsf.org for more information.)
Membership is based on academic qualifications. Membership is held during the semester after the qualifying grades were earned and is for one semester only. In order to become members, students must submit an
application each semester they are eligible. A point system specified in the CSF state by-laws establishes the
membership requirements. To secure eligibility for CSF membership, students must earn sufficient points from
pre-approved course lists. The majority of the membership points must come from University of California accepted course work. Go to www.mabearspta.org/programs/csf for links to the application and course list, which are
self-explanatory on the courses and the limit of classes used to qualify.
Life Membership is achieved by qualifying for at least four semesters in the last three years of high school. One
semester must be during the senior year. 100% Membership is achieved by qualifying for six semesters in the
last three years of high school.
Benefits of membership include the right to list CSF on college and scholarship applications and recognition
at M-A Senior Awards Night and on the M-A graduation program. Members will receive a CSF certificate as
well as a tassel and a gold cord for graduation day.
Members are also eligible for small scholarships from the M-A PTA and the CSF organization. Because of this
financial benefit, we encourage freshmen to participate early and get in the habit of doing their applications each
semester they are eligible.
Applications will be handed out in English classes the week before CSF sign-ups and will be available at the CSF
tables. Applications will be accepted during lunch all week in front of the Green. Late applications will not be
accepted.
The submitted application packet must include:
"
"
"

A completed CSF application.
$4.00 application fee in cash or check made payable to M-A HS.
A copy of fall 2013 report card or transcript. The transcript is available on the student’s Infinite Campus account at portal.seq.org. DO NOT GO TO THE GUIDANCE OFFICE FOR A TRANSCRIPT.

This upbeat, colorful musical brings to life favorite characters from Dr. Seuss books to delight

whimsical evening’s journey from the Jungle of Nool to the Circus McGerkus to the invisible
world of the Whos. Along the way, meet Horton the Elephant, Gertrude McFuzz, Mayzie La
Bird, and Sour Kangaroo. The powers of friendship, loyalty, family, and community are challenged and ultimately emerge triumphant.
Seussical is fun for the whole family, ages 4 to 102. You’ll leave with a smile on your face, a song
in your heart, and a spring in your step.

9th Annual Big Bear Run
Sunday, May 4, 2014, 9:00 am
Last Call for Sponsors!
March 15 Deadline to Be on Banners and T-Shirts
The Big Bear Run is more than a 5k race. It is a fun-filled community event and the core fundraiser
for Menlo-Atherton athletics. Gathering families, neighbors, students, athletes, and businesses together, the race focuses on our common goal of supporting our school and sending the word out to the
community that the Bears mean business! Celebrating our 9th annual race this year on Sunday, May 4,
we anticipate well over 1200 registered participants, making the Big Bear Run one of the community’s
most popular events.
Every year, M-A Athletic Boosters grants over $110,000 to fund the basic needs of teams with support
to over nine hundred committed student-athletes. This effort ensures that our diverse student body
benefits from an excellent education in and out of the classroom. Last year, the Big Bear Run raised
enough money to purchase $15,000 in uniforms, $25,000 in basic equipment and training supplies, and
$70,000 in coaches’ stipends. Without this baseline support, the continuity of M-A’s enriching
athletic programs will be compromised. The Big Bear Run fills the gap between basic state funding
and the reality of our athletes’ promise.
Please join the Boosters and go to m-aboosters.org to make a donation and become a Big Bear Run
sponsor. We are currently looking for corporate and family sponsors at the levels outlined on the next
page. The deadline for sponsorships is March 15. Contact Marci Coggins at [email protected] for
more sponsorship information. For questions about the event, contact Big Bear Run cochairs Dana
Hayse ([email protected]) and Diana Holliday ([email protected]).
Thank you to all the families who have already generously donated! Any contributions made from August 1, 2013, to May 4, 2014, will be counted as donations to the 2014 Big Bear Run.

Winter granting session completed
Thanks to the generous support of the M-A Athletic Boosters, the group was able to grant more than $120,000
in coaching stipends, uniforms, and sports equipment to our 2013–14 athletic teams. The Boosters met in January and approved an additional $40,000 in requests, including eight coaching stipends, uniforms for five teams,
and additional equipment for four teams. Thank you!

against Paly and Los Altos in the preseason and won the Burlingame Tournament. The girls are on track to
qualify for CCS for the third straight year. The F/S team is tied for fourth in the PAL. It too won the Burlingame Tournament, and it went undefeated in nonleague play.

the F/S soccer team is 2-6 in league play.

PAL. The team defeated hometown rivals Menlo and Sacred Heart Prep in the preseason, beat undefeated Half

record of 10-0 in league and 18-3 overall. The frosh team also leads the league with an 11-1 record; its overall
record is 19-2. The team posted impressive road wins at Burlingame in December and at St. Francis in early
