Getting Over the Blizzard of 2016

Getting Over the Blizzard of 2016

Documentaries have been made trying to understand it.  As well as books and news stories on major networks.  People come from around the world to understand it.  What’s the ‘it’?  We are often asked ‘why do guys from Benedict’s succeed high rates beyond their high school years?’  There’s no one answer. It happens in the classrooms, on the athletic fields, swimming pool, and in the confrontation of every-day-challenges that stand in the way.   Yesterday was one of those challenges.  Twenty-eight inches of snow fell in Newark and brought the city to a standstill.

At. St. Benedict’s, recovery from snow storms falls to small crew of men in our facilities department and students in the student-led 520 Corp.  Thanks to their hard work today, we are set to have school tomorrow.  Benedict’s Hates a Quitter.

This is what the scene looked like when they arrived at day break this morning:
