The last day of classes for the school year saw the Prep community gathered to celebrate the Feast of the Ascension. The celebrant for the final school Mass of the year was a special guest at Grand & Warren: Cardinal Joseph Tobin, Archbishop of Newark.
Following the Ascension Thursday Mass, four Prep Spirit Awards were presented to members of the Class of 2018. These year-end Spirit Awards for juniors have a special significance, as they not only celebrate some of the "unsung heroes" of the Prep community, but are also a sign of a new class of leaders taking a greater role in Prep life. These first four Class of '18 recipients will help to select fellow honorees during the 2017-18 school year.
More than 300 Prep parents gathered last week on the Warren Street Plaza to celebrate the end of another school year, and to give a special salute to the senior parents of the Class of 2017. It was an evening full of good friends and great live music. View the photo gallery and relive the fun!
As the school year winds down, Prep would like to recognize outstanding achievement by our modern language students – including strong performances on the national competitive language exams, and inductions to language honor societies.
Prep's Concert Band, Jazz Band, and Vox ensembles each earned accolades in the past week. Take a listen to some of the latest accomplishments for Prep's student musicians!
