Sadness In Halls of Mother Teresa School With News of Impending…

first_imgSome Talk of Bringing the School Back, Or Going CharterBy Joseph SapiaATLANTIC HIGHLANDS – Mother Teresa Regional School, a Roman Catholic Diocese of Trenton elementary school, is winding down its tenth – and final –year.On Jan. 15, the diocese announced it is closing the school because of declining enrollment and financial difficulties.“The rumors have been going around for some time,” said Alton W. Drake II, president of the school’s board.There is talk of somehow rejuvenating the school – approaching the diocese to reconsider or maybe even forming a charter school, Drake said.Either option seems a dream. Talking to the diocese means talking to the entity ordering the school closed and forming a charter school is a time-consuming process that would mean the school could not reopen until at least the 2017-2018 school year.Now, the school – which has 122 students in pre-kindergarten to 8th grade – is looking to help its students find new schools and its staff to find jobs, said Principal Thomas Sorci.“Our main concern was students,” Sorci said. “We wanted to make sure the (other) Catholic schools accommodate our kids.”Mother Teresa students can transfer to Holy Cross School, Rumson; St. Leo the Great in Lincroft, and St. Mary in Middletown; St. Benedict, Holmdel; and St. James, Red Bank.Thomas Sorci, principal of Mother Teresa Regional School in Atlantic Highlands, on the telephone in the school’s main office.“Some of the kids have looked at schools,” Sorci said. “Some of the families have decided where they want to go. Some have given up on Catholic education.”Area public schools are strong, so there will be positive education, Sorci said. But if the children go to public schools, they will “miss the Catholic element,” he said.Eighth grader Ryan Kennedy started at Mother Teresa in pre-kindergarten. He has never known another school. “I’m upset, I practically grew up here,” Ryan said. “Practically, this is my second family.”Next year, Ryan will attend Middletown High School South.“We’re the last graduating eighth grade class,” said Hannah Kahane, 14, who is going off to St. John Vianney High School in Holmdel.“Second is our teachers,” Sorci said. “I’ve written recommendations for every teacher that’s asked me.”“I’m so sad about it,” said art teacher Connie Jamele, 36. “I’ve worked at a lot of different schools, (but) I’ve never seen another school with that sense of community. I keep asking, ‘Is there anything I can do?’”Even the principal will be looking for work.“I have a lot of energy left,” said Sorci, 62, who assumed his post just two years ago. “I’d like to spend it in a Catholic school.”The school has a staff of about 15 full-time and 10 part-time staff, of which about three-quarters are teachers.Students and teachers looking for places to move to next year may hurt the school’s chances for a possible reopening.Kristina Pascucci, vice president of the Parent-Teacher Association at Mother Teresa Regional School in Atlantic Highlands, foreground, and Liz Clayton, PTA president, set up ice cream for students in the school cafeteria. Each has two children at the school. Photo: Joseph SapiaAs Liz Clayton, 38, mother of two children at the school and its Parent-Teacher Association president, said, “I think if it doesn’t happen right away, it’s not feasible because everyone’s going to have found a new home.”And moving to another Catholic school, in this age of Catholic school mergers and closings, is no guarantee of a child completing his or her Catholic education.“Some of them (parents) have been through it before,” school secretary Kelly Condon, 47, mother of two Mother Teresa students.Mother Teresa, itself, formed as a result of five elementary schools closing: St. Agnes, which previously occupied the building; Our Lady of Perpetual Help, Highlands; St. Ann, Keansburg; Holy Family, Union Beach-Hazlet; and St. Catherine Laboure, Middletown.The school, according to Sorci, generally maintained a balanced annual budget of $950,000, about one-third from tuition and about two-thirds through the support of its sponsor parishes: Our Lady of Perpetual Help-St. Agnes, St. Ann, St. Catherine Laboure and Holy Family.“We’re doing our part,” Clayton said. “I feel like we worked so hard and the diocese doesn’t care.”PTA President Clayton, Kristina Pascucci, 37, and Joanna Mass, 42, all mothers of two children in the school, hope to keep their kids in a Catholic school.But the school hit its minimum ideal enrollment of 220, set by the diocese, only once, in its first school year of 2006-2007, Sorci said.A diocesan press release announcing the closing attributed it to declining enrollment and financial strains by some of the supporting parishes. Diocesan spokeswoman Rayanne Bennett said the diocese had no comment beyond the press release.Sorci attributed enrollment decline to families being financially impacted and temporarily uprooted in 2012’s Super Storm Sandy, along with the school being high-risk for closing.“There was an uncertainty, ‘Why should we put our child in a school that could close?’” Sorci said.Another problem, Sorci said, was geographic location: Raritan Bay to the north, Atlantic Ocean to the east, meaning there was not a great radius to recruit Catholic children of elementary school age.School Board President Drake, meanwhile, retains hope to keep Mother Teresa or an offshoot going.“There’s a lot of excitement about closing the door and opening another door,” Drake said. “It’s important to gather our thoughts.“We have to be tactful,” Drake said. “Everybody calm down” – and, then, maybe approach the diocese.“We’ve discussed charter,” Drake said. “That’s a possibility.”The process to form a charter school, which uses public money, must be approved by the state Department of Education. A charter school, assuming everything went smoothly, could not be put in place until at least the 2017-2018 school year, said David Saenz Jr., an education department spokesman.Off the table is forming a privately operated Catholic school because the money is not there, Drake said.National Catholic Schools Week is Sunday, Jan. 31, to Saturday, Feb. 6. – and was being celebrated at Mother Teresa.“It’s just that we’re not going to open next year,” said Sorci. “It’s sad.”last_img read more

Intercollegiate Hockey League champions in September.The 20-year old Mead joins the Saints following a long junior hockey career that concluded with the North American Hockey League’s Wenatchee Wild in the spring.“David is a big, rugged defenceman who is going to bring a great deal of experience and leadership to our blueline,” said Saints head coach Jeff Dubois in a statement.“He also adds a physical dimension that we’ve looked to fill during our offseason recruiting. From everything I’ve heard from his previous coach in Wenatchee, David is a high-character individual and a popular teammate. I’m looking forward to him stepping in and playing a key role for our team next season.” Mead began his junior career in 2008 with the Ontario Hockey League’s Sault Ste. Marie Greyhounds.He spent two seasons with the Greyhounds, posting six assists and 68 penalty minutes in 88 regular season games. He went on to spend the 2010/11 and 2011/12 campaigns in the United States Hockey League with the Omaha Lancers and Fargo Force respectively.Last season in Wenatchee with the Wild, Mead helped to the team to a Western Division championship and a birth in the league’s Robertson Cup Championship.In 49 games with the Wild, Mead scored three goals and accumulated 10 points and 154 penalty minutes while serving as one of the team’s assistant captains.Overall, the 6-foot-1, 220-pound blueliner totaled four goals, 15 assists and 305 penalty minutes over five seasons of junior hockey in the OHL, USHL and NAHL.Mead plans to study a mix of Business Administration and Golf Course Management once at Selkirk.“I’m really looking forward to joining a well-established hockey program and helping to continue the commitment to excellence the Saints have established,” said Mead, who describes himself as a physical, stay-at-home defenceman with good vision and some offensive flair ‘that shows up from time to time’.“I’m excited for the opportunity to get a great education from a college with a hands-on curriculum. On the ice, I’d like to help the team win another BCIHL championship while providing leadership and a team-first attitude.” Mead is the fifth defenceman and 10th player overall to commit to the Saints for the 2013/14 season. He joins forwards Darnell Dyck (Langley, BCHL), Markus McCrea (Youngstown, USHL) and Garrett Kucher (Osoyoos, KIJHL), blueliners Stefan Gonzales (Aldergrove, PJHL), Arie Postmus (Beaver Valley, KIJHL), Ryan Procyshyn (Delta, PJHL) and Tanner Lenting (North Delta, PJHL) and goaltenders Myles Hovdebo (LaRonge, SJHL) and Aaron Oakley (Abbotsford, PJHL).last_img read more

Blackmagic Announces DaVinci Resolve 12

first_imgBlackmagic does it again!  We’ve got the latest info on DaVinci Resolve 12 and the 80+ new features.Blackmagic Design is once again having a busy NAB. Word quickly came that there were three cameras on their way in the Blackmagic Micro, Ursa Mini, and possible Pocket Camera upgrade. Continuing with this rush of information from NAB 2015, Blackmagic has just announced the release of DaVinci Resolve 12 which boasts over 80 new features for professional level editing and grading.Improved InterfaceThe first update has been made to the interface. This new interface includes a lighter color scheme with a new font set. This was done to help make long working sessions easier on the eyes with less strain. The interface is also scalable and has been designed with DPI monitors in mind. Workspaces are now more flexible with the addition of top down menu navigation, which work toward a more customizable layout.Multi-Cam EditingNewly added to Resolve 12 is the multi-cam editing feature which allows editors to cut programs from multiple sources. Resolve can also sync the camera angles based on timecode, in and out points, or audio waveforms. Blackmagic Design states that the source monitor will display a grid, which will contain the different camera angles that play back in sync while the editor can make cuts to the audio.Powerful New Media Management ToolsDaVinci Resolve 12 boasts several new media management tools that are specifically tailored to editorial workflows. Among these new powerful tools are the ability to oversee projects and media through the new “copy, move, transcode, relink, and consolidate tools.”  Projects and media can now also be archived and restored in a matter of moments. Lastly, DaVinci Resolve 12 creates smart bins based on meta tags generated by the user and it also allows these users to import media simply by dragging it from the Finder or Windows Explorer.“We’ve built in the features customers have been asking for…” Grant Petty, CEO, Blackmagic Design.Enhanced Core Editing ToolsThere have been several enhancements to the editing tools as well. Resolve 12 extends trim modes, multi-slip, slide, ripple and roll to aid your workflow. You can now utilize nesting, which aids editors when working with multi scene projects. Lastly, improvements have been made to transition curves which allow editors to customize curves for transition parameters.New Professional Audio EngineAudio is an important part of the editing process and now Blackmagic Design has upped their game with Resolve 12 by adding a new high performance audio engine. This new engine boasts higher sample rates and enhanced real-time playback, including tape-style slow motion scrubbing and reverse playback. Audio plug-ins and custom interfaces can be used on specific clips or entire tracks.A New Way to Color GradeResolve has and always will be a color grading software before anything else and now Blackmagic has added some new incredible tools specifically for colorists. Added support for color managed timelines and ACES 1.0 transforms make things much easier for your workflow and the core grading and color correction tools have been improved with better interfaces. A 3D perspective tracker and 3D keyer have also been added to the tool chest to help improve your options. Lastly, colorists can make use of collapsable nodes, ripple grades, pre and post-group grades, and smart filters.Better Integration with other NLEsResolve 12 can now integrate better with other NLEs and “round trip” to these other softwares by preserving settings, plug-ins, and edits. Here is an example given directly from Blackmagic:“…when importing XMLs from Final Cut Pro X, DaVinci Resolve 12 can now import multi-cam clips and preserve all the original camera angles. Also, audio support is greatly improved to match the audio timeline in Final Cut Pro X. This makes collaborative workflows better and allows different people in a facility to use the tools they prefer instead of being forced into an inflexible company wide platform.”Availability and PriceDaVinci Resolve 12 will be available in July. It will be free of charge for all current DaVinci Resolve customers.Want to stay up to date with everything going on at NAB 2015?
