Before parting ways for the Thanksgiving holiday, the Prep community gathered in the gym for an interfaith prayer service of gratitude, which has marked the occasion for more than a decade. One teacher and several students, representing four major faith traditions found within the school community – Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, and Judaism – shared reflections on the importance of giving thanks.
Following Wednesday's Thanksgiving Prayer Service, the first Spirit Awards of the year were presented to five seniors who embody the qualities of a Prep student as highlighted in the school's mission statement and the Grad at Grad. Congratulations to our newest honorees!
The next stop for Prep on the Road is Kearny on December 12, as Helen and Steven Thiele, P'18 host us for Mass, light refreshments, and fellowship with the Prep community in your community! Mass will be at 5 p.m.
This year's Christmas Concert will take place on Sunday, December 13th at 2pm in O'Keefe Commons. As always, this festive gathering will feature performances by Vox, the Prep Concert Band, and the Sodality Jazz Band. There will be plenty of Christmas and seasonal favorites, along with our usual sing-a-long and great cheer! New for this year will be a live stream of the concert, produced by the Prep TV Studio and available on Prep's YouTube channel.
In observance of the Thanksgiving holiday, Prep offices will be closed Thursday, November 26 through Monday, November 30. Offices will reopen Tuesday, December 1 (also known as #MaroonTuesday).
