Thank you for your May 3 article on Mater Dei High School's innovative Dimension 3 classroom. I found Rand Corp. social scientist Brian Stecher's comments poignant: Testing educational policy before implementing it in the classroom is extremely important but rarely happens. Mater Dei's programs, enriching local grade-school students and testing the true usefulness of technologies in a classroom setting, clearly demonstrate a deep commitment to the community and an abiding concern for the well-being of students.

I am writing this letter in response to Chris Foster's column in the Prep Extra on June 11. I have no idea of the motivation or purpose of Mr. Foster's column regarding Mater Dei High School's security staff. However, please let me set the record straight as to the real facts of this situation (since Mr. Foster never seems to let the facts get in the way of any story he writes). For all major championship-type games, like those at the Pond or Anaheim Stadium, the CIF-Southern Section requires all participating schools to provide a supervision/security staff for that school's rooting section.

Dave Zeitler, coach of Mater Dei High School's cross-country and track and field teams for the past six years, said he has accepted a similar position at Santa Margarita High School. Zeitler, who for the past two years has lived less than a quarter-mile from the Santa Margarita campus, said he sought the position to be closer to home. Zeitler, whose Mater Dei distance program has been a perennial power in the Angelus League, will coach the boys' cross-country program beginning next fall.

Last Friday night at the Mater Dei basketball game with Santa Margarita High School at UCI's Bren Center, the CIF Division I championship football team was saluted before the game. My heart was warmed by the reception given to the Mater Dei team by the Santa Margarita fans. Although rivals, the Santa Margarita following joined the Mater Dei supporters in giving the Mater Dei football team a standing ovation. This kind of sportsmanship that transcends friendly rivalries is what high school athletics should be all about.
