FROM THE PRESIDENT Dear Alumni, Family and Friends, The school year is moving quickly as we have entered the second semester already. It will not be long before the signs of spring start arriving. It has been a blessed year and we have much to be grateful for at The Hall. Personally, I am most grateful to so many who have been supportive of my first year at Calvert Hall. Midway through my second year, I grow ever more impressed with Calvert Hall, our wonderful faculty and staff, as well as our loyal alumni. In this issue of The Cardinal, we highlight the gift that two of our faculty, Augie Miceli and John Thaler, have been to our boys. We are now privileged to call each of them Brother. I am most impressed with our students. We have young men from all over the Baltimore area (and from outside the area as well) who come from different backgrounds and family circumstances. They have varied interests: theater, music, art, athletics, robotics, and much more. Widely diverse in interest, talent, and experiences, our boys form one community. They truly are a “Brotherhood.” It is remarkable to watch this happen and to be a part of it. They seek what so many of you sought before them, an excellent education built on faith. As good as we are, it is necessary to continue to look to improve. We must always seek to become better at what we do. To stand still is really to move backward. We are committed to moving forward. John Baptist de La Salle always reminded the first Brothers that this work was first and foremost, “God’s Work.” We are the instruments that God uses to reach the young. This means we must listen for God speaking in our lives and to continually evaluate what we are doing and how we are doing it. We are called to provide an excellent education based on our Lasallian values for the young men entrusted to our care. The Board of Trustees, the Administration, and the faculty and staff are committed to a process designed to ensure Calvert Hall continues to be an exceptional school well into the future. We have been blessed with many alumni and friends who have joined with us to support these efforts. I thank all of you who have done so and encourage those of you who have not to join us as we move forward. This is a significant moment in time for Calvert Hall, one that can take us to even greater heights. We need you. Continue to spread our name and fame to all with whom you come in contact within your communities. Sincerely, Brother John Kane, FSC, Ed.D. Ca rd i na l Magazi ne Wi nter 2016 1

FACULTY RECOGNITION a Passion for the Mission of Lasallian Education Mr. Thaler makes difficult subjects (algebr a, Trig, Calc) easy, with a low stress learning environment. He will do whatever it takes to put his students into positions for success. O —Jeffrey Berg ’87 Mr. Miceli is really always there for the student, before and after school. He has had a tremendous impact on the lives of gener ations of Hallmen. n Saturday, September 19, 2015, the De La Salle Christian Brothers and the Christian Brothers Community at Calvert Hall College High School formally acknowledged Mr. Augustine F. Miceli, Sr. and Mr. John P. Thaler as affiliated members of the Institute of the Brothers of the Christian Schools. This is the highest honor to be bestowed upon a lay colleague by the Christian Brothers. The liturgy was held in the Marion Burk Knott Center followed by a reception in the Paul A. Russo Dining Hall. During the liturgy, Brother Dennis Malloy, FSC, Provincial of the Christian Brothers Province for the District of Eastern North America, presented the Letters of Affiliation to Mr. Miceli, Sr. and Mr. Thaler. This honor recognizes a lifelong and extraordinary commitment to the mission of the Brothers. The letters of affiliation were presented with the endorsement of the Brothers’ District of Eastern North America and the Superior General in Rome. Mr. Miceli, Sr. is in his 55th year as a mathematics teacher at Calvert Hall College High School. He served as the head varsity football coach from 1974–1988. During that time, his teams won 101 games and six M.S.A. championships, and he was named Coach of the Year four times. Mr. Miceli also served as the Athletic Director for three years and as the head varsity basketball coach for three years. He is well-known for his attention to detail and his dedication to working with students before and after school. Mr. Miceli has taught the fathers and even grandfathers for a number of his students. In his honor, a scholarship has been established to support tuition assistance for current students. Mr. Thaler taught advanced placement and general mathematics courses at Calvert Hall for 46 years (1969–2015). In addition, he was the mathematics department chair. His ability to challenge the most talented students yet make mathematics come alive for those who found math difficult is as legendary as his wit and wisdom. Since his retirement, Mr. Thaler can be found helping out in the Math Resource Center and as a substitute teacher. A scholarship to provide tuition assistance for students with financial need has been created in his honor. —Frank Bramble ’66 Ca rd i na l Magazi ne Wi nter 2016 2

Calvert Hall President, Brother John Kane, FSC, commented, “The Christian Brothers have long worked side by side with lay colleagues who share the passion for the mission of Lasallian education. At Calvert Hall, we are extremely proud of our excellent and dedicated faculty. Augie Miceli and John Thaler are wonderful models of Lasallian education and have 100 years combined of educating young men here at The Hall. Their faith-filled commitment to their students and their teaching represent the best of what our profession is all about. Thousands of Calvert Hall men have benefited from teacher-student relationships established with Augie and John. They are both math teachers, but they are life teachers as well. “It is with great joy that we now call them, Brother Augie and Brother John.” To learn more about Mr. Miceli’s and Mr. Thaler’s scholarships, visit Ca rd i na l Magazi ne Wi nter 2016 3

The purpose of this program is to enhance and complement the excellent teaching that is already taking place on our campus. While technology is only a tool and does not replace the fundamentals of teaching, technology enhanced lessons are an important part of our educational program. Our lecture-seminar system lends itself to BYOD as students get the basic information in a college-style lecture and then engage in studentcentered activities in seminars. With every student in the class having access to a device, we will increase collaboration and analysis of the topics presented in lecture and elaborated on in the seminar—two crucially important skills for the 21st century learner.
