As Molloy begins a new and exciting school year, we would like to invite our community to follow us on social media to stay updated on all the latest news and events:
Molloy has been buzzing with activity this summer! Since late June, significant work has been done to install air conditioning in 22 classrooms facing Manton Street. These classrooms are also being upgraded with new ceilings, energy-efficient lighting, transparent window shades that let in more light, and window film that reflects heat. Elsewhere, Molloy’s track has received repairs and fresh paint, the engraved quote above our front entrance has been restored, and our roof has received extensive repairs as part of a multi-phase project. In addition, the guidance suite (above, lower left) and college guidance suite (above, far right) are both receiving total makeovers with new air conditioning, drywall, paint, ceilings, doors, carpeting, and furniture. All of these projects are in the final stages as we prepare to open school next week...Click Here to Read More
On Sunday, June 2nd, Molloy hosted graduates of St. Ann’s Academy and Molloy for our St. Ann’s Communion Breakfast. This event has been an annual tradition for many years and is a unique opportunity for the students of St. Ann’s Academy, also known as our “Original Stanners“, to come home and reconnect with the Marist Brothers and each other. The eldest Stanner in attendance was John McConville ’48, who graduated from St. Ann’s Academy 71 years ago.
In recent years, the St. Ann’s Communion Breakfast has been expanded to include graduates who have recently celebrated their 50th anniversary. This year, we were fortunate to have several grads from the 1960s in attendance. We extend an invitation to other Stanners who graduated in the 1960s to please join us at our St. Ann’s Communion Breakfast in the future. It is a wonderful chance to reconnect with Molloy and to meet the Stanners that laid the foundation for future generations...Click Here to Read More

Archbishop Molloy High School is proud to announce the establishment of The Lt. John K. Gremse Graduation Assistance Fund. This new, critical fund will help students whose parents face unexpected and overwhelming financial difficulties leading to their inability to pay for the remaining tuition in their son’s or daughter’s senior year. Please continue reading for more information about the inspiration for this fund in memory of Lt. John “Jack” Gremse ’68.
John “Jack” Gremse was beloved in many circles of his life. He was a family man, a loyal friend, and a dedicated member of the FDNY. He was humble, never taking credit for saving lives or property. “I was only doing my job,” he would always say. Some of Jack’s happiest memories were with his Molloy classmates from the Class of 1968. He and his fellow Stanners would gather for mini-reunions at the Gremse family home every other summer, a tradition that has carried on for over 20 years.
On September 11, 2001, and in the months that followed, Jack, alongside many other first responders, took on the onerous task of what at first was hoped to be a rescue mission, but sadly turned into a recovery mission. Just five days after the attacks, Jack was promoted to Lieutenant, an achievement he took great pride in and a role he served in with dignity. Unfortunately, Jack’s work at the World Trade Center would eventually result in 9/11 related cancer. He passed away in September 2014. In memory of Jack, the Class of 1968 continues to reunite at the Gremse family home each summer...Read More

Thank you to Monica Ferreira Gimlett ’06, who served as a guest speaker after school on February 13th. Monica is the Director of Sponsorship Strategy and Business Development at the National Football League (NFL), a role she has served in since 2018. Monica’s presentation was open to all interested students and faculty and included how the NFL establishes and maintains relationships with dozens of sponsors, how constantly evolving technology plays a role in marketing, the importance of social media as a brand awareness tool, and more. Monica also answered many thoughtful questions during a Q&A and shared advice on how to build a versatile skillset in college and how to work your way up in the professional world. Monica’s visit was sponsored by the G.E.R.L.L. Club (Girls Empowerment for Real Life Leadership), which was founded earlier this year by a group of enthusiastic seniors. Thank you to the GERLL Club and Ms. MaryAnn Safrey for coordinating Monica’s visit.
