Dear Bishop Students, Families & Staff,

If you can believe it, we are just 1 week away from the start of the 2022-2023 school year on Thursday, September 8th!

I wanted to take moment to thank you all for so warmly welcoming me as your new principal. It has been wonderful to meet so many of you over the past few weeks and I am looking forward to working together with you this year.

We will be sharing out a monthly newsletter this year to keep everyone in the loop on all of the upcoming key information and events taking place at Asbury Park High School. It will also be a place for us to celebrate the growth and success of our students and staff.

Please read this newsletter carefully for important updates and information.

I look forward to seeing you soon,

Principal O'Neill
