Dear John,

Is the Anthony Ferrara reported as being appointed a judge, the same Anthony Ferrara that graduated with us from the Prep?

He is listed in the prep website as being deceased. I checked my ’64 Prep yearbook and it says that Anthony wanted to pursue a career in law.

Could it be the same person or just the same name?

Regards,
Rich Kaufmann, MP’64, MC’68

[JR: I’d guess the same name. None of the Prepsters at the “planning meetings” at Marios have indicated that was wrong. I’d sure be glad to be wrong … again. ]

Subject: Re: JASPER JOTTINGS Week 02 – 2008 JAN 13

Dear John, et al,

I wanted to comment on Mike McFadden’s e-mail about the “protests” on the Quad in 1970 and Brother Stephen’s response.

As I remember it, I was a sophomore in Chrysostom Hall at the time, there was an element of anti-war and anti-authoritarianism to the protests – but there was also a specific protest of a proposed tuition increase. The cause, another popular one at the time, was that students should have a representative on the Board of Trustees. I think some of the signs read “No Say, No Pay.” It was an interesting time on the campus.

Shortly after that came the first “Earth Day” on campus with tables and displays on the Quad and a call for students to attend Earth Day observances rather than classes. I remember one of my EE profs suggesting that that would not be a good idea….

Mike Toner

[JR: I think class attendance was overrated as far as learning is concerned. As evidenced by my index. Sometimes, I even wondered if the classes were in English? And, as long as the complaint window is open, where was all that “Free Love” that the Sixties was famous for? Certainly not at the Engineering School. Funny how memories are different? ]

A CUP OF COFFEE

A group of alumni, all highly established in their respective areers, got together for a visit with their old university professor.

The conversation soon turned to complaints about the endless tress of work and life in general …

Offering his guests coffee, the professor went into the kitchen and soon returned with a large pot of coffee and an eclectic assortment of cups: porcelain, plastic, glass, crystal – some plain, some expensive, some quite exquisite.

Quietly he told them to help themselves to some fresh coffee. When each of his former students had a cup of coffee in hand, the old professor quietly cleared his throat and began to

patiently address the small gathering… “You may have noticed that all of the nicer looking cups were taken up first, leaving behind the plainer and cheaper ones.

While it is only natural for you to want only the best for ourselves, that is actually the source of much of your stress- elated problems.”

He continued…”Be assured that the cup itself adds no quality o the coffee. In fact, the cup merely disguises or dresses up hat we drink. What each of you really wanted was coffee, not

a cup, but you instinctively went for the best cups… Then you egan eyeing each other’s cups….” “Now consider this: Life is coffee. Jobs, money, and osition in society are merely cups. They are just tools to hape and contain Life, and the type of cup we have does not

truly define nor change the quality of the Life we live. Often, by concentrating only on the cup, we fail to enjoy the coffee that God has provided us… God brews the coffee, but he

does not supply the cups. Enjoy your coffee!”

The happiest people don’ t have the best of everything, they

just make the best of everything they have… So please

remember: Live simply. Love generously. Care Deeply. Speak

Kindly. Leave the Rest to God.

And remember – the richest person is not the one who has the

most, but the one who needs the least.

The older I get the more I realize and appreciate the truth of these words.

Carmine

[JR: I’m not sure that I am old enough to recognize the wisdom. But, I am old enough to pass along the thought. For my part, I am beginning to understand ” … rage at the dying of the night”. Of course, I needed Rodney Dangerfield (in Back to school) to explain it to me in words that I could understand. Of course, if I had had Profs like Dianne in the movie, then I’d have been more attentive. (Maybe?) Argh! ]

CSH celebrates civil rights leader with musical Mass

Voices rose to the mountaintops. Feet and hands waved about like unfurled flags. Oh, it was a glorious day to be at Convent of the Sacred Heart for its third annual Martin Luther King Jr. all-school liturgy, or perhaps more aptly titled, all-school celebration.

To honor the civil rights leader, the Catholic school held its monthly Mass with the Mount Vernon High School (N.Y.) Gospel Knights Choir leading the praise songs and with Father Wil Tyrell of Manhattan College giving the homily.

JNEWS: Flynn-Maguire, Mary (MC1977) retires after 36 years as an educator

http://www.acorn-online.com/news/publish/lewisboro/27929.shtml

Jan 24, 2008
Lewisboro Elementary School principal Mary Flynn-Maguire to retire

***Begin Quote***

After 12 years in the Katonah-Lewisboro School District and 36 years as an educator, Lewisboro Elementary School Principal Mary Flynn-Maguire has announced that she plans to retire at the end of this school year. Her retirement will cap off a tenure that saw a dramatically increasing school population and the implementation of several new programs.

“You need to know when it’s time,” Ms. Flynn-Maguire told The Ledger. “I really just want to honor the wonderful experience I’ve received here. These are the best years of my career.”

Ms. Flynn-Maguire grew up in the Bronx, only a mile from Yankee Stadium. After graduating from Mercy College with a degree in biology, she went on to earn a master’s degree in special education and an administrative certificate from Manhattan College.

“I always wanted to be a teacher; I always loved learning,” she said. “I’m never really afraid to learn something new – I learn from everybody.”

Her teaching career started in private schools, before she moved on to teaching math and science at an alternative high school in White Plains, and coordinating the school’s math and science programs. She served as director of computer education for eight years in Port Chester, then as assistant principal in Port Chester and Redding, Conn., for two years each.

Around 1995, Ms. Flynn-Maguire earned her doctorate from Fordham University and started looking for a position as a principal. She found Lewisboro Elementary School.

“The stars were just aligned,” she said. “I was very fortunate to be hired here.”

Building a community

During her tenure at Lewisboro, Ms. Flynn-Maguire has attempted to focus on the entire learning environment of the children in her care. She instituted the “responsive classroom” program, trying to build a community in the school and to teach the students responsibility.

“It’s not just about grades,” she said. “It’s about what children really learn, and their attitude about learning.”

Ms. Flynn-Maguire began holding morning meetings for the students, building that sense of community. To bring in parents and the community, she holds coffee sit-downs and socials.

One of her more successful programs was Bagels, Books and Bananas, a half-hour held before school a few times each year. Parents and children can attend to receive food and to read together.

Educational initiatives

While Ms. Flynn-Maguire led Lewisboro Elementary School, the district was instituting two new, large initiatives – balanced literacy and Everyday Math.

“Both of them are probably the biggest changes in my career,” she said. “Everyday Math is just so impressive. These children truly understand math. They don’t just learn by rote.”

She has overseen the integration of technology into the classroom, helping teachers to use computers and the Internet in their curricula, and helped institute larger and more comprehensive special education programs.

All this while the school population was increasing, especially during a redistricting that reassigned many students to Lewisboro Elementary School.

But Ms. Flynn-Maguire said she has learned as much from the job as she has given.

“I really learned to listen,” she said. “Sometimes, you need to just be quiet, and that’s not an easy thing to do at times. It’s easy to do many things yourself. But when many people do it together, there’s much more ownership.”

After retirement

Ms. Flynn-Maguire does not plan to abandon her connections to education upon her retirement.

“I’m definitely going to stay working with children,” she said, possibly tutoring students in math or consulting on math programs for school districts. “I really love math and I love working with kids. I’ll certainly miss the people – the big ones and the little people.”

Lacrosse has a special connection to New York City as the first ever collegiate lacrosse game was play 130 years ago in 1877 in Central Park when New York University played Manhattan College. Manhasset, New York native Jim Brown, one of the National Football League’s legendary players, is regarded as perhaps the greatest player of all time, starring for Manhasset High School and Syracuse University. New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg is also a lacrosse enthusiast having attended college at lacrosse powerhouse Johns Hopkins. “This is a popular sport,” Bloomberg said in a jovial press conference in July of 2006 announcing New York City’s acquisition of a National Lacrosse League franchise. “It’s a great chance to take a stick and hit somebody, and you can do it legally with a smile on your face, and they sort of like getting hit.”
