Every student who has walked through the door o f you r classroom is more enlightened for having been taught by you. Y ou r passion for literature and for language has been instilled in all o f us. Y ou r lectures reached and motivated everyone, not only by m aking us enthusiastic about literature, but also about life itself. It is seldom that one listens to a lecture w herein a m artini is used as a m etaphor for G o d ’s grace, or a dictionary gracefully glides across the room at an unsuspecting student w ho is ignorant of the m eaning o f a word. Y our lectures are far too lucid to be m isconstrued, far too witty to be unam using, far too interesting to be soporific, far too candid to lose our attention, and far too im portant to be dismissed. W e are touched by your concern for our welfare, not only for our years at Prep, but also for our future. W hether preparing us for the verbal section o f the S A T , conducting college visits, or w riting superb college recom m endations, you have m ade a typically stressful process and difficult decision for all high school seniors far m ore clear and far less intense. Y our sincerity has shown us a deeper m eaning o f the phrase “m en for others.” Y ou have created budding thespians in both the dram atics and the musicals you directed, but m ore notably, you have inspired us to appreciate all the products o f hum an endeavor. I ndeed, you have given us much. O f everyone we have m et in our Prep careers, there are few m ore m em orable. Your personality, dedication, hum or, and wisdom have inspired us. Please accept this dedication, S ir C am pion, as our way o f thanking you for having blessed our lives with your presence. Sincerely, T h e class o f ‘99

?lnd the Band Played On

This year, with help from Mr. Robinson and a profes­ sional recorder, the band produced its first-ever CD of Christmas music. Playing concert songs, such as “ACaroling at Christmas,” "Westminster Carol," and “Do You Hear What I Hear?," the band spent three weekends recording, making sure there were no flaws present. The cover for the CD was designed with the help of the art department. The finished CD was then offered to any who wished to listen to the Sounds o f Christmas, giving all an opportunity to receive a piece of history.

Professor Van Helsing looks down a t the body of his nemesis as the aged Professor Seward contem plates their adventure. Makeup was often implemented by Mr. Campion to provide the illusion of age.

Mesmorized, Miss Wells stares blankly at the mighty Count Dracula, taken in by his psychic powers. Supernatural powers were common in this play, requiring special lighting effects as well as acting.

Do you Believe in Magic? Dracula had an array of magical powers ready to be unleashed on unsuspecting mortals. In order to emulate these supernatural powers, as well as provide for an entertaining experience, various special effects were employed. The ideas, procedures, and necessary components and chemicals were provided by fellow actor senior Matt McNerney. Having a backgound in magic, he devised Dracula’s glowing fingers as well as two explo­ sions. One explosion was blinding to the audience as Dracula vanished into a shower of smoke and sparks. Additional effects were achieved through the clever work of lighting manager, junior Tim Knapp. One such effect was the appearance of Dracula behind a wall in Lucy’s bedroom, as seen below.

f you wanna talk the talk, you gotta walk the I walk. No diggity, no doubt.” These were just a few ot the encouraging words said by Mr. Mike Gom ez, organizer of the W alkathon. The Prep com­ munity certainly lived up to his expectations. With over 700 participants, the annual extravaganza helped to raise an astounding $44,000, which was over $4,000 more than last year's total. Although $40 was required to walk, the average per capita exceded that amount: $53 per student. T h e sophomore class led the way with $64 per capita. In years past, the proceeds have funded such things as the construction of a state-of-the-art physics lab and the prom. T his year’s proceeds prima­ rily went toward purchasing new vans for student transportation. Not only did the W alkathon help raise money, but it also provided a day o f relaxation and excitement for the school. After assembling on the corner o f Grand and W arren, the Prepcommunity walked briskly along Jersey Avenue where they crossed over a footbridge, entering the lovely Liberty State Park. Upon complet­ ing the walk, students satisfied their cravings with hot dogs, potato chips, and refreshments. At the park, students also played football, talked with friends, and rested their aching feet. Mr. Gom ez summed up what he felt the Walkathon was all about saying, “In essence, it unites those of a particular homeroom, year, and school. By doing so, it exhibits what Prep is all about: pride and spirit.”

ought/ully, senior president Jo h n llanan oversees a debate regarding iool grading policy. Jo h n selflessly Ited the Prep community, never getting his duty.

Ms. Keiserman, Mrs. Costanzo, and Ms. Baber discuss current events. The W alkathon was an opportunity fo r members o f the Prep community to relax and socialize.

T h e O ctober trip began at 7:00 in the m orning and lasted until 4:30. D u rin g this time, the boat sailed from L iberty H arbor, passing the Statue; o f Liberty, to Sandy H ook where the fishing and fun began. T h e fishing continued for many hours until they arrived hom e to dock. T h ere were well over two hundred "keepers'’ caught. Besides fluke, the m em bers o f the fishingciub and their parents also caught sea robins, skates,and black sea bass. T h e biggest fluke belonged to freshman M organ Miller, a newcom er to the fishing clu b.T he crew ofth.e Pioneer was kept busy because they had to net all the fish caught as well as fillet them all. T h e weather could not have been better, with a calm sea and a warm sun; there was no doubt in anyone's mind as they set out that there would be a great catch. A t the end o f the day, the optimistic predictions came true and the fishingciub triumphantly carried hom e a great bounty o f fish. It was a joyous and fun-filled day for all o f Prep’s brave fisherm en and as the group headed hom e, they were all cdntent because everyone took home fresh fish.

hroughout the course o f the day, rooms other than classrooms, the library, and the cafeteria were filled with students doing their homework, playing cards, or just chatting with each other. Thanks to under­ standing teachers, these rooms served as a sanctuary for students stressed out from the day, or as just a place to catch a quick nap or help from other students with homework. Some students in these rooms even formed bonds o f friend­ ship with each other, proving that the Prep spirit can grow no matter how difficult the circumstances.

During one of the year’s assemblies, the entirety 0/the student body correctly sang the school song “Pride andGlory” 1969. Eversince, the words “sadness” and “gladness” in the second verse have been switched, as the students struggle to remember the lyrics while they are singing.

W ithjayous expressions on their/aces, the entire Prep student body sings their heart and soul out during an assembly. The combined sound of Prep’s voices was so beautiful that several teachers almost wept in joy.

Mr. Dandorph climbs on top o/his podium, rips his shirt o ft, and leaps across the room, screaming “FANTASTIC! Let’s have a quiz!” This was a common scene in Mr. Dandorph’s PreCalculus class.

With a grimace on his face, Mr. Guzik S .J. gives into the voices in his head. He was heard running down the hall screaming at the top of his lungs: “Bad dog! Bad dog!”

As the bell rings, student\race down the halls to their next class during a short order. On short order days, much to the disappointment of the student body, classes were shdrter and the day ended earlier.

Food Glorious Food

10:02AM... one could hear the stamping of feet and the jingling of change as horrified teachers watched joyous students rush from their second period class to satiate their hunger. There to provide the neces­ sary nutrients were two brave soldiers: Sam, running thehot dog cart, wasaveteran to the onslaught of students. The second, the pretzel man, was a newcomer. Not eating solely at Lisbon Pizzeria, stu­ dents sometimes turned to local hot dog, pretzel, and ice cream vendors. It was not a rare sight to see students sporting a hot dog or Mr. Softee milkshake throughout the school day. Thanks to these dedicated busi­ nessmen, Prep students never had to worry about being hungry.

Homerooms 139

The evolution of a Prep student is similar to that of a melody. W e started out as a loosely knit group of notes, and over the past four years, we have been slowly molded into a song. Looking through these pages, many of us have become something that we, as fresh­ men four years ago, could not simply compre­ hend. Life is the influence for many songs, and we have been pushed beyond our perceived limits by teachers, friends, and even events. In any song, each note is as pivotal as the one before it. Moreover, the senior class has been shaped as much by the person who leaves school at 2:30 everyday, as it is by the person who stays until 11:00 every night working on the year­ book and the athlete or actor who pours his heart and soul into early morning and late night practices while still managing his stud­ ies. W hile there will always be at least one person you never got to meet, he is as impor­ tant to the dynamics of this "song" as the most popular student was. W e all share a common bond--we are all parts of the same song. W hile being a song without a title or melody, this song surely has meaning and purpose.

A lush tropical jungle brings to mind images of danger, mystery, excitem en t, and ad v en tu re. While one cannot say there are many large jungles in central Jer­ sey, at times, the journey to Jer­ sey City can be quite similar to a jungle safari, St, Peter's Prep was by no Imeans a school for locals only. With the help of the Office of Public Information, Prep was able to draw potential students from all over New Jersey and New York. Some students, hailing from tow ns and cities many miles away, or finding them ­ selves without transportation, were exposed to the tumultous activity known as commuting.









Unable to rely on private transportation, some students were forced to turn to the PATH or to NJ Transit buses and trains. Often shelling out extra money, these students joined the hun­ dreds of thousands of people commuting in the area. These trips to and from school could be as short as 20 minutes each or as long as an hour and a half. This added extra time to a student's school day, forcing him to balance his time effectively; for instance, one easily discovered that homework or sleep could be caught up on during the com­ mute. Despite these added diffi­ culties, these brave commuters perservered.


Riding on the Raritan Valley Line, Sophomore Liam Ahern leafs through a book o f plays. Students used the time during their commute to get a head start on homework.

A NJ Transit bus travels to the bus stop a t Montgomery and Warren. Students from Jersey City and other cities relied on these buses fo r transporation to and from school.

Rising in fam e because of his skill on th e turntable, DMX com bines traditional hardcore rap and hip'hop with anger and aggression, both musically and lyrically. With a tradem ark lyrical flow and a creative use of imagery, DMX is sure to becom e a m ajor force in the world of rap. His debut album , It's D ark a n d H ell Is H o t features a captive narrative called “Crim e Story," th e deeply disturbing *X_ls Coming," and the self"reflective “Prayer." .
