More than a week after completing their last exams, the Class of 2016 returned to Grand & Warren one last time on Thursday, for the annual Senior Exit Day. With a view toward Friday's Baccalaureate Mass and Saturday's commencement ceremony, the seniors reflected on four years at Prep, heard about what's next from some young alumni, collected their yearbooks, and prepared for their big moment this weekend. At day's end, a senior barbecue in the courtyard capped off the festivities.
With underclassman exams in progress and graduation just around the corner, it'll be time for the Saint Peter's Prep – Frenkel & Company Golf Tournament before you know it! In just over two weeks, we'll be teeing off at the Upper Montclair Country Club in our 39th annual tournament. It's your chance to play one of New Jersey's top courses while supporting Prep's mission of Jesuit education, so register today!
Prep on the Road makes its final turn for 2015-16, as we gather in Sea Girt on Saturday, June 25. Join our hosts, Mary and Don McLaughlin, '58, for Mass, light refreshments, and fellowship with the Prep community in your community! Mass will begin at 5 p.m.
The 2016 edition of MarARTer, Prep's student arts magazine, is out now, in print and online. Don't miss an issue packed with drawings, paintings, sculpture, and even architectural renderings by Prep students! This year's MarARTer was prepared by moderator Ms. Megan Klim, editor Luca McLaughlin, '16, senior staff writer Luis Pomales-Diaz, '16, and cover artist Diego Martingale, '16, and showcases artists throughout all four years.
