Students - SEP Takes on Princeton Model Congress Posted Nov. 24, 2015
This past week the St. Edmund Prep Model Congress Team traveled to Washington DC to compete in Princeton Model Congress. The team which has doubled in size since its initial showing last February at Harvard consisted of seniors Shelby Lau and Amanda Mattioli, juniors Joshua Beaton, John McCarthy, Anastasia McGrath, Marissa Moran, Gerald Rehill and sophomore Jared Rios.

Together with the help the non-traveling members of the team, they showed up on Thursday the 19th ready for the challenge. Among the country’s elite students from private schools stood our delegation proud in their purple and white. The eight students assumed their roles as Representatives and Senators and fought for the bills they drafted the weeks before the competition. Bills ranging from the introduction to a new type of nuclear energy to taming the actions of China in the South China sea to amending Obamacare and reenacting postal banking, the SEP students were nothing but spectacular as they defended their bills and managed to get six of their eight passed in their individual committees.

From there the students moved on to Full House and Senate meetings there the merits of proposed bills were debated in a large group setting. The SEP team waved their placards high and voiced their pros and cons whenever given the opportunity. All eight made their voices heard by giving passionate speeches and sound advice regarding the constitutionality of the bills.

For four days, these young men and women assumed the role of policy makers and took that knowledge with them on a tour of the Capitol building provided by Charles Schumer’s office. Seeing government in action was an experience these students will never forget and will motivate them as they get ready for Harvard Model Congress in February 2016.

Students - It's Time For Street Corner Gourmet Posted Nov. 17, 2015

As the days count down to Thanksgiving, St. Edmund Prep and Team Edmund are once again preparing to take part in our annual Thanksgiving Tradition, the Street Corner Gourmet. On Wednesday, November 25th beginning at 12:00pm Students, Faculty, Staff, and Alumni will again prepare delicious "Stuffing From Heaven" to benefit a larger Thanksgiving meal that will be served to those in need on Morningside Drive in Harlem. We invite all members of our SEP family to consider spending some time with us on the 25th helping to prepare our Stuffing from Heaven.

We are most appreciative of all those who supported Street Corner Gourmet by purchasing a SCG T-Shirt! Many have asked if they could pledge additional support to Street Corner Gourmet. Help is needed in the following ways:

  • Donate new or gently used blankets. They will be used to wrap the hot stuffing for its long trip to Manhattan. After the food is distributed, the blankets will be given away as well.

  • Donate some canned foods which will donated to the St. Edmund Parish food pantry to help those in need in our own community.

  • Make a donation to help us purchase the materials to make Stuffing from Heaven. Visit our online donation page to pledge your support. Designate your gift for the Street Corner Gourmet.

Students - SEP to Take Action Against Hunger Posted Oct. 1, 2015
This school year, St. Edmund Prep has taken up the cause to bring awareness to poverty and hunger in our community. Each "A Day" students will be challenged to restrict their spending for food and other non-travel expenses to $2.00 per day, the definition of moderate poverty as defined by the World Food Bank. Students will be further challenged to consider donating a portion of the money they would normally spend in a day to a charity fighting hunger and poverty in our community.

We believe that even the smallest of actions can make a real difference in the lives of so many. At St. Edmund Prep, we will take action to help solve hunger. #HungerAwarenessChallenge #SEPFamily
