Transfiguration Catholic School held a grand opening on Aug. 16, to show off the newly renovated campus and a big crowd came out for the occasion.

Thanks to a major donation by Shea Family Charities, the school now boasts new doors, windows and floors. Also, a new playground and benches will be installed soon.

“It was so rewarding and such a blessing to see this project come to fruition,” said Principal Evelyn Rickenbacker, the chief administrator of the 225-student body. She also expressed appreciation to the faculty, parents and the Transfiguration Church congregation for their support and fundraisers.

Church member Alice Williams noted, “The renovations are simply beautiful! I’m very happy for our children and the school staff.” Rickenbacker added that Transfiguration School offers classes from pre-kindergarten through 8th grade.
