Our Sister, Our Friend n th e course of our lives, we find only a few friendships that truly engage us, a few that dcaw us out and challenge us to live life honestly. Even though we becom e engaged and consumed in such relationships, we also oddly find that we are refreshed by the openness o f our closest friendships. T h e bonds formed cause us to b e uplifted and to start view­ ing life with a new hope and wisdom. At Prep, we are blessed with an individual who has formed such a bond with the en­ tire com m unity — S r . F ra n c es M arie Duncan. S r .

community much like that of his family, and a certain figure in the

group undoubtedly assumes the role o f a mother for this family. She assists those who act shy and timid to feel at home and to find their

place at Prep. Her charitable and warm personality gives students the encour­ agement and motivation they need to truly make Prep a home away from home. She always acts welcoming and kind to anyone who she meets and she makes everyone feel as though they have known her for a lifetime. A member o f the Mathematics Department, she proves her patience and dedication by teaching the new Algebra 2 Basic course for students who strug­ gle mathematically. In the past, she also taught for the Science Department, where she instructed students in the Integrated Phy-Chem course. Always present for extra help, she truly exhibits passion in her desire to instill knowl­ edge. She makes whatever subject she teaches easier to grasp, and creates a fun and seemingly uncomplicated learning environment for her students. This woman acts as more than a teacher, however. She is the driving force behind the charitable spirit o f the Prep community. She stresses the values of becoming a man for others and aids students in their quest to exemplify the Jesuit ideals o f competence, conscience, and especially compassion. She leads the community by example in organizing Subway Runs, trips to Peter’s Place and the Hoboken Homeless Shelter, and the Christian Service Program. An ever-present background to a Prep event or sporting competition, she may be found in her office until the late hours o f the night She has moder­ ated many cooirriculars in the past, including the National Honors Society, and continues to head the Christian Service Summer Immersion trips and the Outreach club. She truly shines in her role as the Outreach moderator, run­ ning such charitable events as the Bronx Christmas Party, the Adopt-A-Family Program, and the Hurricane Katrina Backpack Project Her desire to help all those in need motivates the entire Prep family she so lovingly has touched. She came to Prep fifteen years ago and it seems implausible that this school existed without her. Her presence proves essential to Prep’s feeling like a sec­ ond home to all. A truly compassionate, faithful, and kindhearted person, she embodies the Prep spirit and serves as the exemplar for the entire community, students and faculty alike, to follow. For her moral righteousness, astonishing benevolence, and her continuing love for teaching and inspiring, the Saint Peter’s Prep Class o f 2006 dedicates the Petrean 2006 to our mentor, sister, mother, and friend, Sister Frances Marie Duncan, OSF.

Following a year of dramatic change, the English curriculum remained relatively constant albeit for a few alternative . J senior ( S t i v e courses and for the addition o f Ms. Christiane Gannon to the department. Over B ie past several years the direction o f the English curriculum has bent more heavily on SAT preparation. “It is a good program and the results on the SATs verify this fact,” noted Dr. Richard Kennedy on the department’s shifting emphasis. Although students continue to read classics like The O ld M an an d the Sea in English C atcher in the Rye in English 2, and B eow u lf m English 3, many courses increased the weight on stn^^Hiing students’ writing skills, both for the SAT and college. Additionally, the department administered the amiual sophom ore writing exam, which resulted in a small number o f sophomores enrolling in an intensive vagina workshop to focus on enriching their skills. For senior Jo h n D izon, “The English department has ^Rloped m e into an accomplished writer.” S C ® e.r4 a S v d y litde variety exists in the English curricula for underclassmen, seniors have the opportunity

The English Department, headed by Mr. Richard Peters, continued to offer a program that n ot only illustrated great writing through literary models o f the past and present, but also allowed students to produce their own great literary works. “I am so proud to be a scholar among scholars in the the Department o f English,” enthusiastically agreed M r.

rep always has had a strong calluig for its students to challenge themselves not only intellectually, but also spiii-

P

tually. To achieve this goal, the Religion Department’s curriculum underwent several changes to truly become the foundation o f each student’s religious experience at school

Beginning in fieshman year, students encounter basic religion, continue with New Testament studies, prog­

ress to an analysis o f Social Justice, and conclude with a study o f oomplex aspects o f religion in senior year,

including courses such as Bioethics taught by Mr. Michael Fletcher, PspM ogy an d R digon in stm c& l§r Mr. John Morris, Pnger, offered by Fr. Thomas Benz; SJ, and Churd? History, taught by Mr. Michael McCarthy. A revived emphasis on disdpleship was achieved through the diligence o f the new department chair, Dr. Dominic Scibilia, B e addition o f new fac­ ulty members Chaplain Fr. Thomas Benz, SJ, Mr. Frederick Galano, Dr. Jeffery Hartling, and the continued efforts o f the entire departmental faculty. The department recently emphasized the role o f the junior capstone Social Justice class as an integral part o f Jesuit edu­ cation Instead o f lasting one semester, the course extended to two semesters and stressed the importance o f the required Christian Service component o f the curriculum The journals students completed as part o f their 60hour Christian Ser­ vice expenence integrated their firsthand encounter o f injustioe with the analytical/theoretical fiamework they learned to construct for examining social justice. Aiming to reinforce the ideal that students should strive to make an “instructive and creative difference in world,” both Dr. Scibilia and Ms. Mara Codey, who spearheaded the endeavor, exposed students to the many injustices suffered by the socially taged. Junior Juan Nordelo agrees, noting that the course “truly gives students an opportunity to learn the truth about injustices in our country today.” Junior Nordelo made evident the Religion Depart­ ment’s encouragement o f individuals to oommit themselves to a full immersion o f faith and to realize; as senior Connor Callahan did, “that having faith is a lifestyle and not a casual, meaningless word.”

peaking about equality among a ll races, Mr.'~Robm ^Bd Hymas addresses his Social Justice class that includes juniors Vladimir DeWet and Lorenzo Dellutri. "The sup­ port o f the students" helped make Prep a home away from home for M r. Hymas.

jeSKte latestand bestways to convey language Students o f first-level French, German, Italian, and Spanish began their studieswithan intj©duction to the complexities o f the new language and culture. The second-level courses prepared students to be more acqSl®ied to reading, writing, speaking, and listening to their language, with classes honing conversation and translation skills. Students enrolled in thirdlevel honors courses maintained and improved skills while language analysis grew in complexity. WHiermore, motivated upperclassmen could enroll in either AP Spanish Language or AP Italian For the first timsi Ms. G ^K offered Spanish for Business and Medical Personnel, an honors oourse designed to introduce students to fundamental tenlunology o f these professionals. Senior Robert Abud said, “The dass gives us an opportunity to perfect our Spankh. Ms. Garcia really prepares us for the real-world and teaches us about the Hispanic community.” Students who acclimated well to their expanded horizons could embark on a study abroad or exchange program In addition to the German Exchange made the prior summer, Ms. Rosalie Romano organized an Italian Exchange for spring break and Ms. Garcia implemented a monthlong summer Spanish Study Abroad. Ms. Garcia observed, “The study abroad programs allow students to experience a world drastically different from their own; it is truly eye opening and makes the time in the classroom after a trip much more interesting” She stressed the importance o f expanding students’ mind to new cultures and applauded her colleagues’ success at ensuring that modem language studies remained a respected and vital part to educating a welkounded person “We are all God’s creations,” Ms. Garcia noted, “so we should respect one another’s cultureandwanttoenrichourselvesthrough constantly learning more about the world in which we live.”

You can always talk to thefc about anything. The people in the Guidance Department are always trying to guide students to t i e right path and want

what’s best for us,” encapsulated senior Justin Kraivanger.

A change implemented by Ms. Kathy Rowan and Fr. Joh n Mullin, SJ was the r e in s t a H k t of a Freshman

Group Guidance course, which underscored the importance o f softening the oft-challengii* transition period for Prep’s youngest "W ith a better acclimation, it is our hope that students will start their high school careers better,” explained chair Mr. James Dondero. Junior Group Guidance continued to heighten students’ awareness of increased responsibilities in their academic and personal lives and helped juniors explore college and career options. While no formal course existed for sophomores and seniors, regular counselor meetings ensured p B | er decision making for each group at different stages along the way to graduation. In addition, the College PlaceSpnt Office led by Ms. Janice Martineau guaranteed seniors a smooth changeover to college. Two new departmental additions, Ms. Yetunde Rubinstein and Ms. Mary Durante, spared no time jn acquainting themselveswith their students.Thesenewcounselors often met with Mr. Dondero, who expressed he was “veiy happy with them and their interest in their students.” For Ms. Rubinstein, the transition from counseling at Fordham University to high-school counseling proved excitingly different “It’s been a pleasure, but busy. I really like that everyone seems to know each other veiy well. It’s really positive that people respect one another and boys can show emotions and still be boys.” The energy exuded by Ms. Rubinstein proved to be a comm on thread among the Guidance Department, which helped students receive good advice for a successful future at and beyond their second homes at Prep.

Mr. « slo w itz also reinstated his History ofjazz course. “History o f j a z z is great; we watch lots ofmovies and listen to a pleth™ o f songs...anyone, including non-musicians, would love it,” raved senior Colin Gallo. In addition to new offerings, traditional classes such as Basic and Advanced Music Theory, Drawing and Composition, Design and Color, Painting, Portfolio Preparation, Sculpture, and Ceramics continued to draw an eclectic crowd of interested students. Senior Hector Flores enrolled in Drawing and Composition because he felt the freedom Ms. Megan Klim gave her students “helps in learning how to make decisions and how to be more creative while, simultaneously, allowing me to see the world around me in different ways.” Regardless o f one’s artistic interest, students enrolled in either a Studio Art or Portfolio class participated in the annual Art Exhibition, for which students not only created artwork, but also learned how to install, promote, and hold a reception. This exhibition serves an important role in reinforcing and highlighting the skills developed in each o f the art courses. The Physical Education Department similarly emphasized practical skills for students to achieve not only a sound mind, but also a sound body.

hen I first' decided to attend Prep, I had great expectations. I knew th at Prep was

W

great academ ically, and I had heard good things fro m students and alum ni. Al­ though I did n o t com e to Sain t Peter’s Prep fo r athletics alone, I anticipated th at Prep

would o ffer ,m e iplenty o f oth er co-curricular activities. T herefore, m aking the decision to attend the school was n o t d ifficu lt. O n m y first day o f classes, I was pretty nervous because I was the the on ly person from m y gram m ar school to com e here. It was really h ectic and busy, b u t it was n o t as bad as I had expected.D u rin g the first week the faculty

m ade sure th at we all were

properly acclim ated to high school life. T h e am o u n t o f kindness and caring th at I re­ ceived from m y teachers really surprised me. As classes began, I so on realized ju st what people m eant about Prep’s academ ics. I learned th at I could do well o n ly i f I p u t in the effort. T h e education I am receiving exceeds m y expectations, and academ ics here have lived up to and have gone beyond its reputation. Prep’s athletics also have m et all o f m y hopes. I am re­ ally im pressed by how m uch the coaches honestly care about players o n their team. W ork in g with the coaches truly has been a positive influence. T hey all want us to do well and w ork;hard. Prep really has m et a ll o f m y expectations and I am so glad that I chose to com e here.

How have any of your newfound friends at Prep made your transition from grammar school to high school easier? ‘1 was fortunate enough to meet some new friends before school started through the Soc­ cer Team. Tryouts were in August and I met at least fifteen incoming freshmen and eight sophomores immediately. During the first few days o f dass I was bound to run into a team­ mate in the classroom, cafeteria, or hallways. Seeing those familiar faces made the transition to Prep easier. Having new friends has made free periods and lunch a lot more fun especially play­ ing basketball with them in the rec yard The commute has been grueling but having good friends to ride with has made it fun. It is a great opportunity to talk and laugh and I’m sure it is an experience that I will always remember. I have enjoyed meeting so many new people from many dif­ ferent towns throughout New Jersey and New York I 1 feel fortunate to be a student at Prep, not only because of the great education, but also because of the great people I have m et What is great is that it has only just begun, and I have three more years to form friendships and enjoy the Prep experience.”

How have you grown c l o s e r to your new fr ie n d s at Prep?

reeting each other in between their classes, junior Joshua-D aniel Recobs exchanges a hardy hand­ shake with sophomore Jared Bowers outside o f Mr. Brian M cCabe's Hogan H all classroom.

O:

i ne question that I often find myself pondering is, ccWhat is Prep to me?” After many debates with myself as to the answer o f this query I have come up with an answer. Prep to me is a

home away from home. It is the place where I can be nurtured both socially and academically. The faculty and staff guide me through every step o f my pre<x)liege life and my friends, who are like brothers to me, are willing and able to help me with any o f my dilemmas. When I first came to Prep it seemed as if I was on a different planet due to the fact that I knew nobody going in and I was unfam iliar with the area. After awhile the transition and the commute to school became much easier and, with the help o f my newly acquired friends, school was a fiin place to be. Then, when winter rolled around, I joined the Swimming team and as a result I formed even stronger bonds o f friendship with my teammates and coaches. At the beginning o f the year I was always so anxious to get home after school but the Swim­ ming team really taught me what Prep was all about enjoying life. Eventually the season ended and again I was left with no activity to do after school, even though now I knew how much Prep offered after school It was much more common for me now to stay after school and hang around with friends. Then, as the school year winded down, I was treated to another surprise, which was being voted an Outstanding Freshman. Being voted Outstanding Freshman truly gave me understanding o f how much I had changed for the better. From that moment on I knew I would always have a home at Prep. Now that I am a sophomore I became more involved with cocurricular activities and made even more new friends. Although my time at Prep has been short, one thing that I am sure o f is that it has left an everlasting imprint on my life.

stairs or strolling through the Burke or Mulry Hallways, the simple act o f walking through the hallways makes me feel accepted because o f the greeting I receive from either teachers or students. The hallways o f Prep always seem to have a warm and welcoming feeling to all those who walk through them, which is a part o f the reason why Prep is like a second home to so many. I find this simple greeting, whether it be in the morning walking to home­ room or just simply going to classes, to be quite an uplifting experience, and it always leaves a smile on my face. A sim­ ple “hello” from a teacher or a pat on the back from a friend is something that really makes me feel that I am a part o f the community at Prep because it makes me feel recognized, like I am more than just a number in the school, but an ac­

ing commute or to end the day on a good note after a rough day o f part o f my day because it really can change the way I feel about the long and tedious day.

As a junior I can now reflect on how I also have grown physically, mentally, and spiritually.

Justin Ramirez Mark Rana

Coming into Prep, I was not certain how I would fit in, in terms o f my religious status. Going into a Jesuit High - School as a non-practicing Catholic who had n ot been baptized was a litde unnerving for m e M y anxiety was soon extinguished upon my amval- fieshmap year. Primarily, this was due to my fellow peers and my religion teacher, Fr. Azzarto. His sense o f humor and love | of and respect for life were inspirational. During the past few years, I have learned many things about spirituality in both a religious and passionate sense. In return I have become very interested in the scnpture and the gospels from Mr. Fletchers class. I also have become acquainted with a different type o f spirituality through Ms. Codeys Social Justice class: examining events, issues, and history from the perspective o f the oppressed and voiceless and valuing the true meaning o f faith. It is evident that my Religion teachers have helped me develop spiritually, but there are several othere who I see on a daily basis as well who I would like to mention. Primarily, Mr. Beaudette deserves credit; he recognizes what I am capable o f, and fills my day with intensity, spirit and focus. Additionly, Mr. Caslowitz and I also share a unique sense o f spirit; each commuting from New York and working together with the jazz band. I am eternally grateful for Caz routinely waking me up on the PATH train. Every Tuesday I am able to expenence new ideas and eagerness from members o f the Outreach Club and Sr. Frances herself She provides me with a sense o f spirituality and serves as a strong role model for us all. Drawing on history, Ms. Curry also supplies me with the spirit o f humor and commitment through Student Council and social responsibility in her A.P. U S. History 1 class. Now this may sound like me just trying to make the school look good, but it is true. Friends become best friends, and people complement each other to make them better people. This is the spirituality that I have ., experienced so far at Prep. This is the spirituality that I know will carry me through life.

The Hearts of the Home A common misconception o f Prep faculty is that they do not spend the same amount o f time at Prep as the students and administrators. On the contrary, many teachers claim Prep as a second home. That 12 teachers graduated from Prep demonstrates Prep truly has become more than just a job, namely, T )attlin g teacher-to-student JD fo r another goal, Mr. Charles Crosby and junior R afael Auz play an energetic gam e o f foosball at the W alka-thon, while freshmen N eil Carroll and D aniel Espino­ za watch in awe. Mr. Crosby enjoyed the time to be able to joke and play games with his and other students.

that Prep has become a major part o f their lives. Mr. An­ thony Keating observed, “As an alumnus, Prep has been close in spirit even while living 3,000 miles away and more than 25 years after graduating.” “The caring and concern demonstrated here makes you feel like you’re a part o f another family,” added Mr. James Dondero. For some alumni teachers, like Mr. Brian McCabe, Prep is a lifestyle choice; his alma mater and workplace have “determined who I know, who I call friend, what I read, and what I believe.” Prep has affected alumnus Mr. Carl

DeLorenzo so much that the school serves as an ex­ tended living room considering that “I live across the street, so, literally, it is a second home.” Even for other teachers, Prep is a second home because o f the sheer number o f hours spent at Grand and Warren. Sr. Frances Marie Duncan, OSF, acts as a constant, welcoming presence around campus. “My life

nformal gatherings like the Thursday Soul Food lunch meetings bring together both teachers and students, including Mr. Robert Hymas, freshmen Grant Whelply, Brendan Canale, Jam es Murdu­ ca, Mr. Charles Crosby, freshmen Eric Bujnowski, N eil Carroll, and M s. Annie Glackin, to share.

Muir considers Prep “to be more o f a first home since

/

here or at Prep activities. I have come to love the people at Prep as my own family,” Duncan noted. Mr. David I am at Prep more than I am at home.” Likewise, Mr. Paul Cunneen often has his “mail delivered here” while Mr. Michael McCarthy “always has a change o f clothes in my room!” Mr. Charles Crosby jokingly mused, “I set up a tent in the Stage Crew room.” Moreover, for many teachers, Prep’s community spirit instills an indescribable feeling and a comfort level that transplants the heart o f home to work. “It is a gift to know that there are people who pray for me and to know that I am not alone,” said Dr. Dominic Scibilia. Mr. Benjamin Patiak agrees: “Prep is like a family to me; it seems that I am never alone and that solely gives me the reason to go to work everyday with a happy heart R e fle ctio n b y M r.

“My mother drew a distinction between achieve­ ment and success. She said that ‘achievement is the knowledge that you have studied and worked hard and done the best that is in you. Success is being praised by others, and that's nice, too, but not as important or satisfying. Always aim for achievement and forget about s u c c e s s .’ "

“Destiny is not a m atter o f chance, it is a m atter o f ch o ice; it is not a thing to b e waited for, it is a thing to b e achieved. ”

A Place That Feels Like Home


(Class of 2006 Srfltctimis M ichael G orm an: “O ne o f the fondest memories o f my rime at Prep was my first Football Camp. A* a little, frail freshman I was pretty nervous about going away to cam p with my team. I had heard horror stories about H d l Night* and what g o n o n during the triple session practices. Throughout camp I became a lot closer with my teammates and built a lot o f new friendships. W hen I got hack from camp. I really began to see w hat a great experience Prep was going to b e Before I even stepped foot in a classroom, I had 60 new friends and had already begun to grow as a person. Prep Football has m eant a lot to me and the tim e I spent playing is something H I never forget. E r a though I decided n o t to play m y senior year because o f an injury the year before, I would n o t trade in my foodull experiences for anything in the world."

F

N eil M ajm undar; *1 remember the day I came hack to Prep, after transferring o u t o f freshman year. M y family had mosred to M onm outh C ounty, which required m e to transfer schook.„but I missed Prep and needed to com e hack, so I did. I remember seeing the fam iliar bees. I realized o n that day what Prep really is all a b o u t It is a place where a young m an can truly express him self inside and outside th e classroom. It is, as the website states the "btst four years o f a young man’s life.’*

D andotph came and cleared the courtyard in 10 seconds when things got o u t o f control. I remember eating pizza, watching the snow, and being at peace.”

Lorenzo R a fe r “I don’t think any senior will forgo his time at the Jesuit High School o f New Jersey. But the semi-final football game against Camden Catholic will m ost certainly s a n d o u t in my mind for years to come. The dramatic come-from-behind win brought everyone together as we cheered for the Marauders and viciously ridiculed the Fighting Irish. I was never a big fen o f M arauder Nation, b ut the unity and elation I felt after the game n u d e me proud to be a Marauder.” M ark Tiedem ann: “My time at Prep passed in the blink o f an eye. Between schoolwork, sports, and just hanging out with friends, there are so many memories I will hold on to forever. O ne experience I always will remember was Emmaus. Getting to know more about my friends really brought us all closer together. A nother memory I always will save is lunch time. It may sound ordinary, bu t some o f my best memories were from lunch because o f my friends’ diverse personalities and the atmosphere they created in the cafeteria.”

'Com e on m an! Look, it’s not h a lf a finger, it's two-thirds o f a finger!’ - O rig in a l

J o h n Llaneza: “Com ing to Prep was the best decision o f my life so far. From the beginning o f fresh­ man year to senior year, 1 grew an unbelievable am ount. The friendships and memories experienced will never be forgotten and will be with me always.”

“Why does one want to walk on kings? Why force one’s body from a plane to m ake a parachute? Jump? Why should man want to fly at all? People often ask these questions. But what civilization was not fou nded on adventure, and how long could one exist without it? Som e answer the attainment o f knowledge. Some say wealth or power is sufficient cause. I believe the risks I take are justified by the sheer love o f the life I lead. ’

The clicMd descriptions we so freely bestow on our athletes-words like coura­ geous, tireless, inspirational-have taken on deeper meanings. ’ -Steve Wulf

he O ffice o f Student Affairs managed the daily happen­ ings o f the com m unity, with the intention o f upholding

a professional atm osphere. Consisting o f only five people, including M r. Kenneth D andorph, M r. Jam es C ollins, Ms. H elene Schneider, RN , Ms. Elizabeth D andorph, and Ms.

Cecilia C ollins, this “office” worked hard every day to manage fa­ cilities, record attendance, file health records, coordinate co-curricular activities, and organize transportation reim bursem ent. Like the doting parent o f a hom e, these people strove daily to resolve problems and facilitate the needs o f each and every Prep student. M r. Kenneth D andorph, A ssistant Principal o f Student Affairs, managed daily m aintenance o f the Prep com pound and handled dis­ cipline. M ore profoundly, M r. D andorph wanted “to get students to take ownership o f the com m unity and facility.” M r. Jam es Collins coordinated co-curricular activities, assigned lockers, and taught in the H istory D epartm ent. Ms. Helene Schneider, RN managed all student health records, in addition to caring for the occasional sick student. Ms. Elizabeth D andorph, in her 20th year working at Prep, managed the transportation reim bursem ent for the m any students who com ­ m uted to the school via mass transit. The people in the O ffice o f Student Affairs enjoyed their experi­ ence and felt that Prep was like a hom e away from hom e. M r. Kenneth D andorph elaborated: “Prep has been a second hom e by allowing me to be a part o f a com m unity o f great faculty and staff, students and parents. It’s just fun to be liere each day.” A nother face com fortable with her Prep surroundings was Ms. Cecilia C ollins. She single-hand­ edly ran the A ttendance O ffice, handling all the absences, tardiness, and disciplinary phone calls for the entire student body. “I see over nine-hundred boys alm ost every day and when I talk to people about them , I call them ‘m y boys.’ I am honored to wear a ‘Proud Prep Par­ ent’ sh irt,” smiled Ms. Collins.

tudents cannot work on empty stomachs, and the cafeteria staff catered to the needs o f many a hungry student Preparation o f various dishes, as well as the calculation o f sales tapes proved a mere part o f the daily routine for the workers o f Prep’s exclusive eatery.

During the early hours long before students awoke each day, Prep cuisine was unpacked and cooked. From donuts, bagels, cookies, to breakfast sandwiches, the kitchen staff spent hours creating hearty treats to start a pupil’s day properly. “I’m serving and cooking food for my second children,” said kitchen aide Ms. Griselda Rodriguez. After second period, the staff served fries, mozzarella sticks, pizza, and chicken nuggets to students who wished to have a brief break in between classes. Courtesy o f Fr. James Keenan, SJ, an ice cream vending machine was added. During lunch periods, sandwiches were heated and served to those who wished to remain local for lunch. While the kitchen staff ladies were skilled at cooking meals, they equally showed skills at singing ‘90s Pop and R&B.

T^arly in the morning Ms. JL—t Linda Perez and M s. Dorca Parna prepare many different foods to be served in the cafeteria throughout the day. When asked how she felt about working at Prep, Ms. D eborah Hernandez exclaimed, "I love my job!" ' I he Prep C afeteria S ta ff JL includes M s. Debo­ rah Hernandez, Ms. Agnes Laudio, Ms. Linda Perez, M s. Dorca Parna, Ms. G riselda Rodriguez, Ms. Lucy Palmiero, and Ms. Karen Koepke.

Freshman Liam Colford commented, “The fries are so amazing, which is why I order them just about everyday. The lunch ladies are nice, too.” The dedication o f Prep’s chefs reflected in their kind personality and delicious menu as they created a unique family-table environment every day. Coming to this environment every day was made a pleasant experience with its sparkling halls and classrooms, in part because o f Prep’s biggest unsung heroes, the dedicated maintenance staff From the early morning to the late hours o f the night, these few good men worked tirelessly and arduously assuring that Prep felt as clean and tidy as possible for the coming day. From the locker room to Ms. Garcia’s “penthouse” to the science labs, the clean-up crew took pride in their daily routine. Under the management o f Assistant Principal Mr. Kenneth Dandorph their duties included not only guaranteeing a squeaky-clean, pristine school each and every day, but also ensuring the routine fixing and tweaking o f the broken or dilapidated. A constant presence in the school, one always found a member o f the maintenance staff around campus. The maintenance workers happily and efficiently performed their jobs. Workers, such as Mr. Hugo Elo, Mr. Demetrius Trowell, and Mr. Roopandar “K” Kowlessar not only cleaned up after the students but also formed bonds with them, stopping from their frantic schedule to joke around with and talk to many students. Together with the cafeteria staff, the mainte­ nance crew helped students feel comfortable in their home-like environment at Saint Peter’s Preparatory School each and every day.

Besides being the place where student drop o ff their Emmaus “materials,” the switchboard managed all incoming mail from the USPS and private carriers. This service provided the faculty, staff, and administration with an easy and efficient method for sending and receiving im portant classroom materials and documents, from special colored chalk to science lab equipment to report cards. M r. Francisco “Pyke” Roman and Ms. Marie Scrudato devoted m ost of their time and energy to help keep Prep informed and running smoothly. It is through them that mail was divided and distributed amongst teachers and telephone calls were directed to their proper recipients. W ithout these hard­ working people few daily operations could occur. Both Ms. Scrudato and M r. Roman have made Prep their second home for the past ten years. After learning about the school from a friend and Prep parent, Ms. Scrudato began her work here two years before her son, alumnus Salvator Scrudato, arrived as a freshman. She decided to stay long after her son moved on from Grand and W arren. M r. Roman, a retired accountant, was offered a position by a form er adm inistrator, Fr. Damien Halligan, SJ. He started on the Saturday shift almost ten years ago; when the role expanded into a full five day work schedule, M r. Roman felt proud and honored to take on an increased and im portant, albeit out o f sight, presence in the community.

thletes o f Saint Peter’s Preparatory School ibrm a brotherhood among each o f their re­ spective teams. They spend long hours prac­ ticing together with peers o f different classes under the guidance o f coaches who push their teams to victories that have become fa­ miliar to the Prep community. Tim e spent together allows them to bond and to form a

community that helps them find their place among the team. Indeed, they have their own places to practice like the newly-dedicated James F. Keenan Memorial Field, named for the outgo­ ing president, the Gymnasium, the Wresding Room , the Weight Room, the Jersey City Armory, Saint Peter’s College, and even the streets that offer surprising beauty in the urban setting o f Jersey City. Each member o f an athletic team supports and encourages others to strive for the best and to continually improve. Perhaps it is this very brotherhood that leads Prep’s athletes to coundess titles each year. Each team forms a kind o f family. Team members create a brother­ hood that supports each other, strives to win, and, more importantly, unites to ensure that each member o f the team performs at his peak. Coaches serve as mentors to their athletes, and instill in them teamwork, good sportsmanship, and a drive to work to their potential. They rise above their call o f duty and help these impressionable youth to make de­ cisions for a future o f academics and athletics in a collegiate setting. More simply, coaches are there” for their athletes every step o f the way.

The variety o f sports offered at Saint Peter’s Preparatory School allows any student to compete in what ever activity suits his interests, ranging from traditional high school sports like football, wrestling, hockey, swim­ m m niCJ ming, to that o f the newly formed Fencing team, which further broad­ ened the assortment o f athletics available to meet the diverse interests o f an even more assorted group o f more than 900 students. In addition to the sports played after school, individual homerooms competed for glory during lunch-period Intramural basketball games managed by Mr. Brian McCabe and his student assistants. Some students took such pride in their homeroom teams that they created T-shirts displaying their num­ bers and unique team names. N ot only do teammates form their own community, a brotherhood o f men, but also fellow students, faculty, and staff gather as one to root for the hom e team, like an extended family reaching out to champion for the com m on good. The thousands that attended the championship game at Giants Stadium to support the Varsity Football team, who defeated D on Bosco Preparatory for a state tide, revealed camaraderie born o f a com­ m on home at Saint Peter’s. The fans unite to cheer for the M aroon and Silver, heading to Caven Point, the affectionately named “Bam,” Bayonne Ice Rink, or Lincoln Park to watch the Marauders compete to win. The communal support shines through, in part, because o f Marauder Nation, the club o f students that keeps everyone abreast o f Prep athletics and organizes theme nights to energize the crowd and make games, matches,

Using the first two winning games as a catalyst, they quickly climbed the rankings, which boosted morale for the team Under the supervision of Head Coach Mr.John Irvine, the team toppled over teams like North Bergen and advanced farther in the county and state tournaments than in recent years. For other teams, the season ended in late October, but die Marauders were just warming up at that time On the minds o f players was the County and State Tourna­ ment In the back o f their thoughts they remembered that it had been five years since the last time the Varsity Marauders brought a County trophy back to Grand and W anen Playing Memorial would prove difficult for the team Earlier in the season,

Fencing consists of three different weapons complete with their own rules. Foil, die most common weapon, is a thin flexible sword, and a fencer scores points, called touches, if the point touches the torso. Thicker and less flexible than foil, epee scores a touch when the point hits any part of an opponents body. Saber, a slighdy curved blade, scores a touch when a fencer slashes his opponent on die top halfofhis body.

hree student organizations faithfully continued in their quest to provide for the community beyond Saint Peter’s Preparatory SchooL Typically, the Mission Committee spends hours counting monqr that students donate for theJesuit Missions during Lent However, with the impact of Hurricane Katrina in September, the Mission Com­ mittee members began collecting and counting money earlier than usual in moderator Mr. Robert Zawistowski’s room. The Prep community was summoned to assist those in need, and came through for many of those affected by tragedy; dressdown days supplied a large part of the funds col­ lected. Senior MichaelJ. Sweeney commented, ‘The Mission Committee was grateful to the Prep Community for their continuing generosity in the wake of Hurricane Katrina and during Lent for theJesuit Missions.” An assembly of 47 student scholars was selected to be members of the National Honor Society (NHS) and entrusted with the duty of serv^ ing the Prep community and beyond in accordance with Jesuit ideals. Traditionally, memberdiip in the NHS is defined by a junior s academic excellency leadership potential, and service to the local community. The members of the McNally-Smnott Chapter, under the leadership of new moderator Ms. Theresa Panzera and president seniorJulian Pormentilla, strived to fulfill its mission by oiganizing and overseeing the Thanks­ giving Food Drive, the annual Christmas Toy .Drive; and “adopting” a needy Appalachian family. Additionally, particular emphasis was placed on tutoring struggling underclassmen. Outreach exemplified students’ commitment to the school’s values by providing students with an opportunity to perform community service. Following Hurricane Katrina, Outreach initiated a fundraiser as well as backpack-supply donation for hurricane victims. The Nativity Christmas Party provided disadvantaged children with an opportunity to have a happy holiday celebration. As senior Andrew Zhu noted, “The social in­ teraction and entertainment of the Nativity Party gave these kids a fun Christmas.” In fad; three current freshmen who matriculated from the Nativity School were offered full scholarships to attend Prep. Moderator Sr. Frances Mane Duncan, OSF, offered, “We intend to continue home­ less runs and participate in Jersey City’s Habitat for Humanity Program,” with intentions, like that of the Mission Committee and NHS, to per­ petuate theJesuit mission of “men and women for others.”

TT n living the Jesuit ideals, students leam to become advocates of I causes that matter to themselves and the greater community. The

JL newly formed AntiSweatshop Qub was created to serve two pur­ poses, The first was to educate the student body and faculty about companies that use sweatshop labor in the production of their goods and the injustices that each of these companies commits. The second purpose was to use the knowledge gained from their education to stop endorsing certain companies from which the school make purchases. Moderator Dr. Dominic Scibilia described that a foundation previ­ ously was established by the Prep community, indicating that a group of students and faculty had made a difference in the lives o f sweatshop laborers. In addition, the group began replacing the sweatshop-made dothing in the Campus Shop with items made by workers who re­ ceived fair wages and enjoyed good working conditions. Students dedicated to living a healthy life, free of risky and danger­ ous behavior, came together often to discuss some pressing issues. Students Against Destructive Decisions (SADD), moderated by Ms. Kate Walsh worked towards breaking students away from their often illegal activities and opting for a different, healthier hobby. They spent many lunch periods passing out information and materials on mak­ ing good choices at such a crucial age in a teenager’s life In December, they made pins for World AIDS Day and collected over $300 for AIDS research They also handed out candy on November 17th for the Great American Smokeout More than just a free tasty treat, the candy proved to be an alternative to drinking or smoking. SADD did not, however, simply focus on drug and alcohol abuse Dominic Scibilia,

would begin a discussion among different races: “The movie was so true to life; there are still people 'who really do think and feel like that So, hopefully, everyone learned that we are all victims of racism in one way or another.” SADD used such movies as a springboard for discus­ sions about the issues upon which the group was founded. Truly these two groups shared a common goal of student advocacy.

ontroversial. Thought-provoking. Groundbreaking. Such

terms describe (he motivations o f the Independent Film Society (IFS), in its third year o f existence. Senior Richard

Auth assumed the presidential role and vowed to increase expo­ sure o f the films and to expand the selection by showing more films, more often. Titles such as Paris, Tern, Easy Rider, and Fear and Loathing in Las Vtgas sprinkled the list o f “Road Films” the group saw for the fall Symposium o f Film; the club chose “Addic­ tion and Recovery” and “Death and Rebirth” for the winter and spring symposia, respectively. The IFS continued its monthly treks to the city to view con­ temporary independent films like Broken Flowers, The Squid and the Whale, Thumbsucker, and Brokeback Mountain. This cocurricular, composed o f no more than 10 students, with the help o f mod­ erator Mr. David Muir, were obliged to reflect upon the original mission o f the society; to show films o f importance and meaning, outside the traditional Hollywood framework, and that challenge and defy norms and conventions. Auth commented, “I think we made a lot o f progress since it formed my sophomore year, we used to only watch a few movies per year, and now we tty to see a new film every week We go see movies in NYC a lot more, and we had more informal discussions than before.” N ot only watching films, but also making films matters to stu­ dents. The TV Studio encouraged students to learn about and ex­ periment with the process o f video production and the equipment needed to make films. The club had its own production studio in the basement o f Burke Hall containing modem technologies and advanced equipment Mr. Benjamin Patiak assumed the task of supemsing the group. There was a great deal o f effort put into the videos made by the club’s members, who spent a large amount o f time after school continuing the writing, filming, and editing o f installments o f “The News” and the annual Christmas Video, which was a Prep version of ^ starrin g senior Raymond Pasuco as the ride character, and numerous Prep students as extras.

eviving the centuries old words of'William Shakespeare is never an easy task, especially when done by a cast of

high school students, but on January 6th, 7th and 8th, the famed author s cleverly written verses were given new life when Prep Dramatics presented The Merchant o f Venice. Rarely a story performed on a high school stage, the controversial comedy tells the stoiy o f the amorous Bassanio, played by senior Raymond Mikulich, who, in order to fund his trip abroad to the fair Portia, played by Andriana Friel, asks to his good friend Antonio, senior Jonathan Treble, to represent him as they appeal to the money­

Seniors Valentino Mills, Judd Madarang, Fergus Scully, Brian Dalton, and junior Philip Corso also held substantive roles in the drama direct­ ed by veteran teacher Mr. Jack Campion. The level o f perfection

reached by these actors was not acquired immediately, however. The group o f students spent almost every day o f the week before opening night in preparation, making sure they had each line and movement down. Although memorizing the lines, often regarded as a “foreign language” by the cast (and viewers o f the play), was not always easy, by the arrival o f the play the Prep thespians put on a show that Elizabethans themselves would applaud. While the casts’ role on the stage was, o f course, important, the work that went on behind the scenes could not be overlooked. Many people watching the show may not consider the time put in by the Stage Crew to build, paint, and arrange the sets to create the illusion o f Venice and yet, without their effort, there would be lit­ tle to complement the acting. Under the guidance o f moderators Mr. Charles Crosby and Mr. Robert Hymas, the small troop o f handymen designed, painted, and later arranged and rearranged the thirteen flats that would set the atmosphere for the story, while other crew members could be found in the proscenium or sound booth working the curtains, lights and microphones.

embers of academic oocuiricular activities simply could not get enough learning during the course of the school day, they continued to build knowledge; logic; and critical thinking skills outside of the dassioom. The Academic Team, founded by seniorJonathan Treble and moderated by Mr. Mark Dondero, formed out ofa want for aca­ demic competition among other schools. The team contended with schools across the nation at rq^onal tournaments; answering questions in a broad range of academic and pop culture topics.

The team competed well in its founding year, breaking to playoff rounds in several tournaments. Under the direction of two new moderators, Mr. Joseph Riordan, 5 and Mr. Anthony Keating, the Chess Team practiced frequently after school For much ofthe time, the team met after school in Mr. Keating or Mr. Riordan’s classroom to sharpen skills and gaming strategies by feeing each other in practice matches. Notwithstanding, the moderators searched for tournaments in which the team oould partidpate and show off their abilities; the first such tournament occurred in March Junior Joma Poimentilla, a veteran chess player, observed, ‘The chess pradioes were a great plaoe to hang out Chess hdped me to devdop as a better leader.” Likewise, the Math Team competed against area high schools using brains rather than brawn; specifically, students competed in the Catholic High School Math League To stay on top of the competition, the Varsity and JV teams met often during lunch periods with their moderators, Mr. Patrick Rddy and Mr. Benjamin Patiak, respectively, to practice from previous years’ tests. The challenging tests, which students took after school for 45 minutes, induded questions covering all mathematical levels like geometry, trigonom­ etry, and precalculus.

Campus Shop workers made all of these changes possible by dedicat­ ing their time to running the store and maintaining the storage room. Without their help the Campus Shop could not have remained as organized, boasted such a large and diverse inventory, nor remained open as often. ‘"The Campus Shop is a great place to leam about busi­ ness of the real world, and it is a great place to hang out with my friends and meet to new people, both students and parents,” said jun­ ior Alexander Pugliese.

go at the stock markets; the Stock Market Club simulated actual stock market transactions. Moderated by Ms. Ella Glazer, the activity relied on the virtual stock market whereby students started with $500,000 to invest in various virtual stocks. The online market operated as a normal exchange would; participants in the stock market bought or sold stocks and invested their money in several ways, such as placing money into a bond or money-market fund. The students assembled investment strategies against their online competitors, and the winner collected the most residual earnings over the simulated game’s time horizon. Ms. Glazer also moderated the Computer Club, very much an ex­ tension of her computer classes. The club dedicated itself to two main projects. Under his leadership, president seniorJavier Vasques strove to revive the club by creating a website hosted on the school s intranet site and by building a computer out of scrap parts donated by the school. ^

ued to make a presence, especially among the students who find our culture’s history enthralling. In its fourth year since inception, the Classics dub expanded and influenced students more than ever. With the help of new moderator, Mr. Mark Dondero, veteran

adviser, Ms. Kristine Spano, and senior ooconsuls Andrew Anderson and Patrick Comey, the club expanded and participated in several di­ verse activities. The first outing o f the Classics Club allowed interested at­ tendees to learn more about the culture of the ancient world by viewing a marathon of the critically-acclaimed HBO original series Rome, which portrayed Rome’s history, art, and culture at the end of the Republic and banning of the Empire. "It was a pleasure to see a depiction o f the time period that is so accurate and enjoyable,” offered senior CJ. Kopec The club also celebrated the ancient holiday of Saturnalia during the Christmas season by holding a small feast in Ms. Spano’s classroom; participants enjoyed grape juioe and Roman delicacies prepared by Mr. Joseph Riordan’s AP Latin class. The Classics Club achieved success with a number of students interested in expanding their knowledge of and in some cases, participation in ancient Roman culture and practices. Likewise; the History Club, led by president junior Adam Baginski and moderator Mr. Paul Cunneen, expanded its offerings by showing Hotd Rwanda and Wiliam Shakespeare’s Heny the VIII to its members. These films typically coincided with historical topics covered in history classes so that interested students could further pursue subject matter discussed in class. Junior Baginski also organized the popular Teacher Survivor competition, whereby the competition’s winning pair split the money collected from the $1 entrance fee to use for their homeroom mission drive fund. The current and standing winners, Mr. Kellen Wil­ liams and Mr. Mark Dondero, part of “Ebony and Ivory,” rejoiced over their second victory in two years. Besides the standard Teacher Survivor, the club also organized a similar competition for students called Student Survivor whereby two student representatives from each homeroom competed during lunch to win Mission Drive money for their home­ rooms. Seniors Neil Majmundar and Ryan Loftus of homeroom 4B ultimately claimed the monetary prize for their homeroom. i

iction & pine /¥t rts and letters etters activities began as a way for students to explore their artistic and humanistic endeavors outside the dassroom. .Through art, literature, and photography, students found just such an outlet The Art Club had in mind to expand the horizons of its student participants. Junior Jon Sisti explained, ‘1 happen to think going to museums is a good learning experience and a lot of fun.” Un­ der the direction of moderators Ms. Megan Klim and Ms. Erma Yost, the Art Club traveled to various exhibitions, including a show called “Columns X12” held at the Grace Van Vorst Church in Jersey City, and featuring Ms. Klim and other local artists. The Ait Club also met with performance artist, Nicolas Dumit Estevez, as he made his pil­ grimage entitled PerformanceArt From Futurism to From the Present from Manhattan to Jersey City. The Art Club felt honored to be chosen as one of the stops on his journey. While on campus, he held a discussion with students about his works that have strong religious undertones. In its fourth year the Book Club continued to offer its members the opportunity to discuss works of literature in a forum outside the classroom. After the departure of Ms. Rachel Wortman, Ms. Bonny Eaton assumed her role as the club’s adviser, proffering her knowledge o f books and taking suggestions from students to find the perfect selec­ tion of New York Times bestsellers and Pulitzer Prize winning books to read. Unlike other years, the dub drew primarily from sdections of short stories and poems. One of the most significant changes proved the group’s transition to novels, such as The Kite Runner by Khaled Hosseini and Wickedby Gregory Maguire The group even received an e-mail from John McNally, the author o f The Book o fRalph, to person­ ally answer questions put forward by students during their discussion. “It is so great being able to read and discuss books with other people.

Kopec The Photography Club members, with their moderator, Mr. David Muir, received a boost when the family of a local photographer, Julius Weber, donated his equipment, induding enlargers, a contact sheet maker, and a dryer drum, thereby replacing the otherwise dated materi­ als in the dark room. Hidden in the darkroom on the fourth floor o f Mulry Hall, the small group could be found devdoping film and enlarging photos taken at and around school, creativdy experimenting with the disappearing art o f manual photography.

Sophomore Brendan White explained: “I am firmly of the opinion that any and all of Mothra’s victories over Godzilla were flukes and, furthermore that Godzilla’s atomic breath was underused” The classic sitcom Seinfeld continued a successful run for a second year by students in the Seinfeld Club, the only club dedicated to a single television show.

The Star Wars saga boasts fans everywhere and Prep proved to be no exoeption In addition to watching the new movie in the theater, the Star Wars Qub went on a number o f trips that induded laser tag and other sa-fi related events. The dub also hosted several school activities induding a Star Wats BattlefieldII video game tournament and screenings of several Star Wars movies that induded the recently released Star Wars Episode III: Reveng ofthe Sith. Moderator Mr. Robert Hymas exdaimed, “The dub is fun; the members are a great bunch of guys! They really are enthusiastic about Star Wars.”

cocunicular activities such as the Comic Book Club,

few who have a unique taste for these fascinatingly different hobbies. The Comic Book Club gave its members a forum to discuss their far vorite superheroes and comic book characters. Club president junior Sean Camey described it as “a place where people can oome together to trash DC Comics, except for Batman” In addition to debating about the characters that would win in a fight, they also visited the New York Comic Conventioa Additionally, they engaged in a new activity, similar to that o f the Book Club, whereby the members chose a particular comic to read and discuss at each meeting Moderator Mr. Robert Hymas provided his room for their informal meetings at which some students read their favorite comics while others gathered in small groups to debate the exploits of certain superheroes. Every Tuesday and Thursday afternoon, students enjoyed differ­ ent fantasy games in Mr. Charles Crosby’s room. The Role Playing Game (RPG) Club met to play a variety o f games including a paperandpencil version of Dungeons and Dragpns and the card

as a surprise that nine unique culture dubs influenced the

lives o f students outside of the classroom. Since its founding decades ago, the Ebony Club has grown stronger with the leadership o f new moderator Mr. Kellen Williams. Members of the Boys & Girls d u b o f America borrowed Prep dassrooms and spent time with many members o f the Ebony Club after school. “The Ebony Qub is the best dub for anyone o f any race, creed, or color, the dub accepts anyone and everyone,” stated senior David Ogega. Guided by Mr. Duane Farabaugh, the German Qub frequently gathered for films and discussions about German politics, art, music, cars, and magazines. The oiganization, led by seniors Matthew Mulroy, Michad F. Sweeney, and junior Matthew Ward, viewed films like Run Lola Run and a legendary showing of the dub standard, Das Boot. Such films supplied partidpants with many aspects o f German culture. Without Mr. Duane Farabaugh, Sf, however, no discussion would have been complete. In its first year, the Irish Language Qub focused on the rudimentary topics o f basic Gaelic grammar with the assistance of moderator and Gaelic enthusiast, Mr. Farabaugh. The dub hdd numerous meetings, during which members would conju­ gate verbs and learn simple Gaelic phrases. The Irish Language Qub also gathered to watch Gaelic tdevision programs over the Internet With moderator Ms. Rosalie Romano and the hdp of president seniorJoseph Salvo, the Italian Club continued its influential presence throughout the community by exposing members to Italian culture The dub odebrated Italian Heritage Month during October, which induded daily scheduled events such as a visit to the opera, bingo, and ‘1 Love Lucy” episodes. The monthly Italianspoken Sunday masses in NewYork Qty, followed by desserts at an Italian pastry shop, also con­ tinued with much success. The dub invited Dr. Richard Kennedy to present his slide show on Italy and to discuss his many trips. Attendees enjoyed the many pictures o f sights from all over Italy, complete with Italian opera music and folk songs to complement the visual imagery. The Italian Qub achieved numerous successes with students -who had an interest in expanding their knowledge and, in some cases, partidpating in Italian culture and practices.

Meeting weekly, the Hispanic Soaety discussed various topics affecting the Hispanic and Spanishspeaking world. In addition, the Hispanic Soaety presented Motorcyde Diaries, a film about the life of Che Guevara. The Indo-Pak Soaety also successfully came together to allow its members to experience Indian and Pakistani food and culture Under the leadership o f new moderator Ms. Melissa Dowling, the group enjoyed several dinners out together. Senior Nishant Tyagi observed, “Through my partidpation in the IndoPak Soaety, I have been able to reestablish my Indian heritage with others from the Prep community.” The Indo-Pak Soaety gave its partidpants an opportu­ nity to experience the traditions of India and Pakistan with the hdp o f the many students involved who originated from these countries.
