Molloy Congratulates Its Over 100 AP Scholars!

Archbishop Molloy High School proudly highlights its students’ hard work and achievements. This September, Molloy recognizes over 100 students, including current seniors and recent graduates, who have earned Advanced Placement (AP) Scholar Awards as a result of their performance on AP Exams during the 2021-22 academic year. Molloy also recognizes numerous National Recognition Award recipients.

AP courses offer students in the United States an opportunity to earn college credit before graduating high school. AP classes offered at Molloy include: Computer Science Principles, Computer Science A, United States History, World History, European History, U.S. Government and Politics, Psychology, English Literature, English Language/Composition, Biology, Chemistry, Physics 1, Calculus AB, Calculus BC, and AP Seminar. The latter courses are the first of two courses in the AP Capstone Diploma Program.

“I would like to congratulate all our fantastic AP teachers and students on these impressive results. They are the product of hard work, great effort, and dedication. Go Stanners!” said Dr. Darius Penikas, Principal of Molloy.

A total of 107 students have been recognized as a 2021-22 AP Scholar, AP Scholar with Honor, or AP Scholar with Distinction. Honorees in each category meet specific criteria based on their AP exam scores and their total number of exams taken.

NATIONAL RECOGNITION AWARDS: In addition to the three AP Scholar distinctions, 13 Molloy students were awarded the National African American Recognition Award, 15 were awarded the National Hispanic Recognition Award, and 1 was awarded the National Indigenous Award. Congratulations to our students for these impressive and outstanding honors.

Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!

Molloy’s Hispanic and Latino Stanners are excited to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month with the Molloy community! Club board member Sophie Navarrete ‘23 shares, “This month has a very special place in the hearts of not only the Hispanic and Latino community here at Molloy, but in America. It shows our impact on society. The Spanish Club board and members (Isabella Arias ‘23, Sophie Navarrete ‘23, Joseph Castano ‘24, and Ethan Yu ’24) helped create this year’s bulletin board. We are excited for this year’s Hispanic Heritage Month party later this month and the homeroom hallway parade to represent our countries. We are also excited for the Festival of Cultures later this spring. Happy Hispanic Heritage Month!” Thank you to Spanish Club moderator, Mr. David Little, and all club members!


Campus Ministry: Students Begin Year with Service

Donations for Hour Children.

This September, seniors donated 70 backpacks and lunchboxes to Hour Children. Hour Children supports women and their families during and after incarceration. Tarik Lajoie ’23 shared that this was an “opportunity to live the Marist pillars of Love of Work and Family Spirit.” 

Molloy recently welcomed members of Urban Park Rangers for a discussion about “Building Communities through Urban Sustainability,” an ecological project through NYC Parks. Students who apply and are accepted by this unique service project will delve deeper into conversations about eco justice and the environmental issues that face New York City. Volunteers will “learn about nature, bring positive change to the community, and help preserve the environment.” Thank you to Urban Park Rangers for opening this opportunity to Stanners, and to Campus Ministry for arranging the visit. This is just one of the many service opportunities being highlighted by Campus Ministry. Students interested in exploring other volunteer initiatives should visit room 334 for more information.

Back in March, Molloy students collected backpacks and school supplies to be donated to children in need in the Dominican Republic. Molloy recently received photos from the DR where the donations were recently distributed. “This is the fruit of our Lenten Work. These drives make a difference,” said Ms. Lori Wilson, Director of Campus Ministry & Marist Mission.
