MLK Day Service
Transfiguration students teamed up with Bergenfield public school students for a community service event in honor of Martin Luther King Jr. Day. On Monday, Jan. 20, the group participated in the third annual MLK Day: Changing Bergenfield One Community Service at a Time held at Conlon Hall. 
 
Volunteers from grades 3 through 5 assembled "First Night Kits" for the NJ Cares Program. First Night Kits consist of gallon-size plastic bags filled with personal hygiene products that a family or individual would need on the first night at a shelter.  In total, 943 kits were assembled. 


Alumni Mass and Brunch
 Transfiguration Academy welcomed past students for an alumni Mass and brunch on Jan. 5. About 70 people from various graduating years attended the inaugural event. The program consisted of a blessing, presentations and a raffle drawing. It also honored the memory of alumna Charli Roberts from the class of 2013, who was best known for her charisma and Christ-like character. Sister Madeline Hanson was also honored. She served as a principal, director and teacher for many years in our school community. The event also helped raise $800 for our scholarship fund. More photos of the event can be found here.
 
Plans are already in the works for another Alumni Mass and Brunch in 2021, coinciding with the 100th anniversary of the school.
