Mater Dei Prep was proud to honor the Seraph scholars and athletes at the Academic and Athletic Awards Ceremony on Tuesday, May 14, 2019 in Memorial Hall. It was a beautiful evening to commemorate the students on their achievements.
On Wednesday, May 15th, Mater Dei Prep hosted a volunteer appreciation night on the campus in Middletown, New Jersey. Seraph Strong volunteers are the lifeblood of the school and generously contribute in myriad ways from involvement on the Board of Trustees and Board Committees to support for the Mater Dei Fund, the performing arts program, the PTO, Booster Club, The Women’s Leadership Initiative, and support for development events.
On Thursday, May 2, 2018, Mater Dei Prep continued the tradition of hosting Heavenly Hope Fun Day, a student-run service program for children and young adults with special needs. The project started in 2012 by then Mater Dei Prep junior Taralynn Vecchio (MDP ’13) and has been run by Mater Dei Prep students every year since. Heavenly Hope Fun Day gives the participants a break from their regular routine with a whole day of fun games and activities while bonding with fellow Mater Dei Prep students as they give back to the community.
This year the Mater Dei Prep Seraph Players put on two outstanding productions Clue, on Stage! and Tuck Everlasting. Each production received numerous award nominations. Congratulations Seraph Players!
