S    ummertime, and the work isn’t easy; the graders are drivin’ and the dirtpiles
     stand high. Major work continues to move forward well on two fronts: first,
the green beginning of rooms one to fifteen with new boilers, underground lines
installed, and the first classroom renovation; second, the turning of the baseball
field and placement of year round fieldturf, for all weather and multiple sport use.
These projects are under the direction of alum Mike Nonella, whose previous
work includes last year’s new Fieldhouse. Further changes include connecting the
counseling offices with a double door, thanks to the skills of alum and current
parent Pete Boschetti, putting VP Doug Kirk’s idea into practice. As Mary
Euphrat joins our Counseling team, they will all have a new setup designed for         BOARD OF DI RECTORS
greater efficiency and student options, including more computer stations. Steve
Cavalin helped with the baseball dismantling and then turned to computer lab           John Jordan - Chairman of the Board

courses working in there. Avid Valentin, with help from Jaime, Humberto, and
new hire Ezequiel Valencia, leads the yearly maintenance work projects, whose list     Jeff Bertoli - Advancement/Alumni
is long, laborious, and necessary. We welcome Jackie Schwedhelm to the business        Pat Broderick - Mission/Curriculum/
office; she is also mother of just graduated Troy. Also coming to the office will be                   Catholic Identity

fortunate to gain such qualified new employees who are already members of our          Hal Chouinard - Finance/Technology
community. The full sized class of 2013 will also be arriving ready to contribute,

a testament to our faculty’s work and Admission Director Pat Piehl’s guidance.
Surely, we have been blessed with the chance to continue improvements and              Carol Lowe-Drake - Advancement/Enrollment

targeted for last year’s WCEA/WASC. I expect our coming year to be one of              Teejay Lowe - Advancement/Alumni

As we step into next year soon, I look forward to the continuation of some of last     Jackie McMillan - Advancement/All Committees
year’s highlights, especially our Oxford Scholar’s presentations. With the imminent    Diane Merritt - Advancement/Enrollment
beatification of John Henry, Cardinal Newman, we heard from the students how
our namesake has influenced others. The new nominees will be invited soon to           Mike Nonella - Buildings and Grounds
commit to two research papers and presentations, attended by Bishop Walsh, who
                                                                                       Roger Nulton - Finance
has even suggested this year’s first topic. These academic evenings provide not only
insight and interesting information but the opportunity to discuss and exchange        Tim Tesconi - Enrollment/Curriculum
ideas in a roundtable forum, preparing the students for the seminar methods of
top universities; this matches some of the same experiences Newman himself             Vic Trione - Finance
learned and taught at Oxford. Our highest achieving students earn this privilege       Eric Von Der Mehden - Finance
not to receive another honour but to accept a greater challenge and find a depth
of understanding beyond their classroom experience. The college preparatory path       Michael Wear - Buildings and Grounds
runs several ways; we look forward to walking those paths again with the class of
                                                                                       Mike Truesdell - All Committees

                                                                             ...   our best
    …our best, The Cooperative Campaign
        Commencement is a logical time to look forward!

        During the first four years of our efforts to enhance the educational
        environment for our Ursuline and Cardinal Newman students through
        …our best, The Cooperative Campaign, we have pointed to classroom
        greening plans for the science and humanities classroom wings.

        This summer, the work begins! We commence!

        Although the fundraising continues, and new efforts are beginning
        through our Advancement Office, we are delighted that we have
        secured cash and pledges to allow for the first phase.

        Over twenty-five years ago the pipe system carrying the hot water
        from our forty-five year old boiler to the classrooms was abandoned
        due to leaks. The solution at that time was to reroute the hot water
        pipes to the roofs and then back down the exterior walls. It was                                                          Old boiler installed in 1964.
        expedient. It was also likely considered temporary.

        Technology now makes it possible for us to replace the old boiler with two
        significantly smaller units and return the service pipes below grade where they were
        originally designed to be.

        This will allow for the removal of the “temporary” pipes from the roofs in
        anticipation of the second phase which will include the installation of solar panels.

        The work this summer will be handled by IES, Indoor Environmental Services.
        Mr. Josh Kohler, Design-Build Sales Engineer has emphasized his firm’s
        commitment to improving the classroom environment for all of our students.

        As we reported in the most recent annual report with the article entitled “Two
        Down, One To Go,” this is the final element of the Cardinal Newman case
        developed by the steering committee of …our best, The Cooperative Campaign:

        n   We have exceeded the goals established for endowment growth.                        New smaller and more efficient boiler system.
        n   We have built the ACC.
        n   And now this summer, we commence with the classroom greening plans.

Every year,to pause. every graduation provides an
            every class,

n How was this year different?
n How does this class compare?
n How is this graduation special?

Whether recalling my own graduations, or those of my children, or the many Cardinal
Newman classes I’ve witnessed celebrating this success in late May, it is clear that they
are all different, they all compare well, and each one is special.
                                                                                            A D M I N I S T R AT I O N
The class of 2009 can boast over $5,300,000 in financial awards from the colleges and
universities to which they were accepted. The vast majority of this number is based on        PRESIDENT
the academic excellence demonstrated by the class.                                            Mr. Mike Truesdell
The class of 2009 was the first to fully participate in the augmented program of study
required of John Henry Cardinal Newman Oxford Scholars. As Bishop Daniel F.                   P R I N C I PA L
Walsh shared with our community, “This is a demonstration of academic excellence              Mr. Graham Rutherford
pursued by Cardinal Newman High School students.”

The class of 2009 was the first to demonstrate 100% completion of the curriculum              AC A D E M I C V I C E P R I N C I PA L
requirements associated with Community Based Service Learning. In past years one              Mr. Doug Kirk
or two would miss some aspect. This class, however, went the distance. They leave a
legacy of altruistic spirit.
                                                                                              A S S I S TA N T P R I N C I PA L

The class of 2009 pushed itself in the arts. The spring musical, the talent show at the       Mr. Stewart Clark
Wells Fargo Center, and the contribution of music in support of campus liturgies all
point to their artistic expression.                                                           COLLEGE CO UNSELI NG

The class of 2009 represented Cardinal Newman as competitors in league, section,              Mr. Ed Cutler
and state championship finals. It did not matter which sport. They all consistently           Mrs. Mary Euphrat
demonstrated athletic achievement.                                                            Mrs. Bev Fuller

  Newman Golf Team Sets New Records!
                                    The Cardinal Newman Golf Team just completed a record setting season. The
                                    team three-peated by winning the NBL Championship, repeated as NCS Champions, and
                                    won the Northern California Championship! The State Championship held June 10, 2009

Cardinal Newman and Ursuline junior and senior
retreats were once again wonderful spiritual experiences. All retreats
were held in Occidental – juniors attended Alliance Redwoods and seniors
attended Westminster Woods. Students returned from their retreat experience
renewed and refreshed with a greater sense of respect for themselves and their
commitment to faith in God.
Juniors participated in a two day retreat. Students worked together in small
and large groups on activities which allowed them to search deep within their
personal convictions dealing with moral issues and faith in God. Teachers and
staff of both Cardinal Newman and Ursuline led the students through these
exercises with the help of Campus Ministry students. Various reflections, small
and large group discussions allowed students to discover what is important and
meaningful in their lives. Typically in the junior year, students begin the process
of making important decisions for their futures and this retreat experience gives
students the time away from school and home to evaluate the method in which
they make moral decisions. The retreat exercises give students an opportunity
to consider effective methods for moral decision making while remembering to
strengthen their faith in God.
In addition, our juniors participate in recreational activities such as basketball,
volleyball, hiking and just hanging out with friends in a relaxed atmosphere
under the redwoods. Juniors were very thankful for their retreats experience
and look forward to their senior retreat next year.
Our senior retreats were held at Westminster Woods where students
IMMERSED within themselves and life experiences. Seniors were guided by
Cardinal Newman and Ursuline teachers along with Campus Ministry students
on a three day retreat. Seniors explored the fundamental foundations in their
lives. They were guided to immerse within themselves in order to recognize the
core values by which they live, the importance of family and friendships which
support them, the responsibilities and challenges they face daily in life and how
God is ever present to uplift and support them in all times.
Activities dealing with prayer, values, trust, and communication help the
students process where they have been in life, where the are in their senior year
and where they are about to journey to beyond their high school experiences.
Seniors took the time to discuss, in both large and small groups, the fears
they face in preparation for life outside of high school. Seniors shared their
excitement for their futures and offered advice to one another as they took the
time to publically affirm each other. As the retreat came to an end, students
dedicated their retreat experience to a loved one in a heartfelt night prayer
experience. Many seniors expressed their thankfulness for parents, siblings,
teachers, coaches, and friends. The final day, seniors took the time to write
letters of advice and encouragement to themselves which will be mailed off
to them this coming August. It is important to add that seniors were able to
spend some down time enjoying the outdoors and beauty of nature under the
redwoods of Westminster Woods – something that is very important in this
busy world in which we live!
Overall, all the junior and senior retreat experiences were some of the best we
have had in recent years. Thank you to the ministry efforts of both Cardinal
Newman and Ursuline High Schools for their commitment to these retreat
experiences. Our students are blessed to have such an opportunity to allow
God into their lives. The value of retreats is beyond words!

          On Friday, January 30, 2009, Cardinal Newman
          honored the 1989 Basketball Team with a celebration and
          halftime presentation of all the team members attending.
             It is always difficult to compare great teams of different
          eras. I have seen the great Cloverdale Teams of the 1980’s
          and the great Montgomery teams of the late 1960’s. I also
          watched the great Cardinal Newman teams of 1975 (25-1)
          and 1969 (23-2) and I captained and played on the great
          1970 team (21-4) that won the first Top of the Bay Classic
          (forerunner of the Sectional Tournament, by 23 pts).

                                         May 16, 2009 rolled around, we had one goal in mind: Win a single match.
                                         We were greeted with an 8 AM start time, a larger bracket, and what was, at the time,
                                         the hottest weather of the year. After a typical 7-5, 7-5 victory to open the day, we were
                                         ecstatic at accomplishing our only goal, (but we were sucking down water like it was
                                         beer). We played well enough to earn two more matches that day, even though at times
                                         I found myself crouching in the thin shade of the cyclone fence in an effort to escape
                                         the heat. The thrill of playing in front of a small crowd was enough to carry us through,
                                         however, and we found ourselves in the finals.
                                         We’d played three matches and I had an eight hour work shift looming in the near
                                         future, so Coach Greco was accommodating enough to postpone the last match until
                                         Sunday morning. When morning rolled around, sunburned and sore, we had to be
                                         ready to run for cover at a moment’s notice as wayward baseballs rained on us from the
                                         adjacent field. After moving to center court, our net game wasn’t enough to overcome
                                         the unrelenting barrage of lobs and veteran savvy as Kevin McCullough and Greg
                                         Spaulding came away with the win.
                                         I couldn’t believe we had almost won the thing, and I owe a huge thanks to all of Greco’s
                                         former players that didn’t sign up for the tournament who could have made our road to

   3nd Annual                            the finals much more challenging, especially considering our criminal lack of practice. If
                                         you stay home again, Alex and I might even take home first next year.
