Mr. Peter Cesare
Director of Physical Education and Athletics

It is a pleasure to welcome you to our web page and this years athletic season. I hope you will be able to support our teams this year by attending our numerous games and cheering for our dedicated athletes on the fields and in the gym. Having an opportunity to participate on an interscholastic team and the thrill of competing against opposing schools is a vital component to a student's education. I look forward to seeing you and know you will continue to show your intense pride at our athletic events.
