Homecoming is coming October 25th:

Serra plays Harvard-Westlake (4-0, 63rd in the State and 3rd in section) at 7:00PM on 10/11 at Harvard-Westlake (Studio City) so if you live anywhere from San Gabriel to Calabasas, be there.  The following week, 10/18, Chaminade (4-0, 34th in the nation, 8th in the state and 2nd in the section) will come rumbling down the 405 to challenge our Cavaliers at Serra field.  There will be standing room only.

After running this challenging gauntlet, Homecoming will be here versus Cathedral on October 25 at 7:00PM.   Make your plans to be here early.  By popular demand from players and alumni, all alumni (make sure you have some Serra attire on) will continue our 3 year tradition of forming on the track at 6:30 and form the Serra  Alumni Tunnel for the team to run through and onto the field.   In coming editions and on Facebook we will be providing more information on Homecoming 2013. Watch for a special event in the gym at Homecoming.



Serra Students & Father Serra


Serra students ventured to San Marino to see the "Junipero Serra and the Legacies of the California Missions" international loan Exhibition at the Huntington Library.  The exhibition celebrates the 300th anniversary of Father Serra's birth.  The students returned to campus with a deeper understanding of Father Serra represented by the statues and paintings on campus.  "Now that I know how much work he put into creating the missions, I'll never look at those sandals the same again."  DeeAnna Segee 10thgrade.   The exhibition runs through January 6, 2014.



The Night the Coaches and Stars Came Out.

Ted Dunlap, Serra's consummate Athletic Director opened the show and welcomed all, followed by Dr. Christian DeLarkin, our Principal, who welcomed the crowd and introduced Father Ted Ley, S.M.. Father Ted delivered the invocation. 

As the assembled multitude settled down, WOW!!! Onto the floor came Serra's Cheer Squad, who proceeded to give a 4 minute routine that had the audience enthralled.

A Lomeli's Dinner was served.  After dinner, the guests thought they could relax......but wait, Mr. Burke came out of the audience to lead a few rounds of "Let's go, Serra."   Master's of Ceremonies Vince Kates '61, Joe Cormier '81, Helena Conley '98 and McKenzie Hadley, Ladies Basketball State Coach of the Year, took turns introducing the Coaches and everyone else in the audience......and a lot more including 2 birthday parties, one for Patrecea Cannady (wife of Zarek '85) and one for Tim Boyer '70 featuring cakes, candles and stirring Happy Birthdays songs.  If you want to find out what "everyone else in the audience" means, plan on coming next year.   For Track & Field aficionados seeing  high hurdlers Derek Knight '85 and Theo Viltz '61  meet for the first time was a joy........not to mention having George Stanich, an Olympic Bronze Medalist from the '48 Olympics, in attendance.

In another surprise, members of the Mount Carmel Alumni Foundation attended and brought a check for Serra's Adopt-A-Student Program.  Thank you.

Special thanks to Crystal King '11 and Jack Burke '73 who took lots of pictures.....check out Facebook.
