Apex Fun Run
Transfiguration Academy's Apex Fun Run helped raise more than $5,000! The money will be used toward renovating the boy's bathroom in Conlon Hall. Pre-K through eighth-grade students gained pledges and donations ahead of the Feb. 12 fun run, which consisted of 26 to 36 laps around the Apex Raceway in the gym. Leading up the main event, students received daily character lessons and awards as they learned what it takes to be a true leader. We thank you for all of your support! 

Catholic Schools Week
Transfiguration students and parents enjoyed several fun activities in honor of Catholic Schools Week, held Jan. 26-Feb.1. The eighth-grade class hosted St. John's senior group for a "senior prom," where guests enjoyed food and music with the students. The academy also hosted Deanery 3 schools (St. Peter Academy, River Edge; Visitation Academy, Paramus; St. Joseph School, Oradell; Our Lady of Mt. Carmel, Tenafly; and Academy of St. Therese, Cresskill) for the Catholic Challenge. Students from each school compete to see who knows more about the Catholic faith. Transfiguration took second and third place. Students also donned some creative headwear for Crazy Hat Day. Pre-K and kindergarten students showed off their singing skills. And Family Fun Night was filled with games, dancing and a tug of war contest between kids and parents.

Alumnus Research Awarded
Joshua Naviamos, who graduated from Transfiguration last year, helped his high school win $15,000. Joshua and another freshman at Bergenfield High School researched drug resistance. The project consisted of initial experiments to see how some antibiotics are ineffective against antibiotic-resistant bacteria. A teacher submitted the project into the Samsung Solve for Tomorrow contest, resulting in the high school being named a New Jersey state winner. The national competition will be held next month.
