Mater Dei Prep was proud to honor the Seraph scholars at the Academic Awards Night Ceremony on Monday, May 7, 2018 in Memorial Hall. It was a beautiful evening to commemorate the students on their academic achievements.
On Thursday, May 3, 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 was started in 2012 by Taralynn Vecchio (MDP ’13) and has been run by a Mater Dei Prep student 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.
