- Deans' Message
Saint Peter’s Prep is famous for its tremendous school spirit, a spirit that is noted by anyone who visits the school or attends one of its athletic contests. As the players on the field have a responsibility to do their very best, so also do the fans in the stands. Fan support is best when it is loud and positive; it should also be good-natured and sportsmanlike.
Booing, taunting or deriding an opposing player or fan or a game official is unacceptable on any field or in any gym. Cheers, chants, or signs or gestures that are obscene, mocking or derogatory are not reflective of the spirit for which we are famous and should never be heard nor seen from a Saint Peter's Prep cheering section. The Dean will meet with any student when his behavior before, during or after a game serves to discredit or to embarrass the school in any way. Serious offenses can lead to prohibition from future attendance, disciplinary probation and expulsion.
Athletes are responsible for displaying sportsmanship and representing Saint Peter's Prep in a way that reflects positively on the school community.
In a similar way, we call on our Prep parents to model good fan behavior at all of our athletic events. Click here to read our statement to parents.
