22 Apr From the Desk of Principal Cosentino
Dear St. Peter’s Alumni:
The Centenary year has started off to be one for the ages. Our Centennial Gala kicked the year off with a tremendous amount of excitement. The night was a huge success with the performances of Joe Piscopo, Daniel Rodriquez, and The Midtown Men. Leading up to our gala, the Centennial Campaign was able to raise the first $2 million toward our campaign goal of $5 million, thanks to the generous pledges from some of our most prestigious alumni. We are forever indebted to all the alumni for your contribution to this campaign.
As always, there have been many remarkable things happening throughout the school year thus far. We opened the school year with 150 new freshmen and they have already acclimated to the energetic spirit of the St. Peter’s hallways. In the classroom, our boys continue to standout receiving acceptances into some of the most prestigious colleges in the country, such as Boston College, Manhattan College, U.S. Naval Academy, New Jersey Institute of Technology, Stevens Technical Institute, LaSalle, Fordham, Clemson, Villanova, Alabama, Oklahoma, and Delaware University, just to name a few.
Our young men continue to be present in the community, living the Lasallian mission by serving those in need. They have spearheaded hurricane relief efforts; provided Project Hospitality with over 150 packets of clothing, first aid material, toiletries, and snacks for the Staten Island homeless. During the first Friday of every month, students collected food to aid the local food pantries as well. We have been able to provide 500 families with various meals thus far and continue to collect food for the less fortunate.
Athletically we have soared continuously throughout the year. We started the year off with a 16-1-2 record and a city championship in soccer. Our track program continues to shine by setting a new distance medley record for Staten Island, fastest cross country duo in Island history, nationally ranked 6th in distance medley where four of our runners achieved All-American status. The basketball program won its 33rd Staten Island Championship on the varsity level and its 14th on the JV level. GO EAGLES!
On behalf of the Parish, Christian Brothers, administration, faculty and students, I would like to extend my gratitude for all of your continued support and generosity throughout the years. Without you, our dedicated alumni, the success of St. Peter’s is not possible. Please, do not be a stranger and come visit to see what is going on at 200 Clinton Avenue.
Live Jesus In Our Hearts…Forever!
