Atlantic Highlands, NJ - Mother Teresa Regional School celebrated ten years of memories on Sunday, June 5.  It was a day filled with memories and laughs for alumni, faculty and parents that were a part of the local community for many years.

Ms. Melissa Whelan, the former principal, helped organize the event bringing members of the community together for one last goodbye and to celebrate as a community with principal Mr. Thomas Sorci.  To bring back memories, Ms. Whelan chose to wear her hair in pigtails for the day as this was her signature look back in the days at MTRS when announcing to the students that they were about to have a “fun day”!

The day was sponsored by Swanton Heating and Cooling from Atlantic Highlands and several Mother Teresa Regional School families. Food and other equipment for the picnic were donated by Harborside Grill, Windansea, Renee Eldridge, and Red Bank First Aid.
