Advent Food Drive
The St. Vincent DePaul Society depends on the St. Benedict community every year to help the hungry in our community. The food drive begins Monday, December 2nd, and ends on Friday, December 13th. Please check with your teacher to see what each grade is asked to collect. If each student brings in 3 or 4 cans or boxes, we can reach the goal! Thank you to Mrs. Honsa and the elementary Student Council for partnering with NJHS and NHS to organize the food drive.
Our Lady of Guadalupe Mass - wear dress uniforms!
On Thursday, December 12th, grades 1-12 will celebrate Mass together at 1:30pm in the church. All students are to wear dress uniforms (no PE uniforms.) Students that have PE class that day can bring white gym shoes to change into before PE class.

Yes, recycling is coming to St. Benedict Prep! You will be hearing much more about this initiative in the coming weeks and months. We'll be kicking it off formally in the New Year! To celebrate, we're hosting some contests to get our students involved and thinking about positive impacts we can all have on the environment. We hope parents will encourage their children to take part. Prizes will be awarded for winners of each grade level.
