Transfiguration School Reopening Meeting

Please sign-up for one of the mandatory Reopening Meetings on Tues. Aug. 11th to learn more about our Transfiguration Catholic School's Pandemic Preparedness & Readiness Plan.

Tuition Payments Start in August

Due to COVID-19, Transfiguration Catholic School will begin billing for the 2020-2021 school year in August. In an effort to give families some relief in these challenging times we opted to not bill as usual in July and tuition payments will be billed August – May for the 2020-2021 school year for those that selected a 10 month tuition agreement.

2020-2021 School Supply Lists

School Supply Lists for the 2020-2021 school year are available! They will be posted on the home page of our school website (www.transfigurationmn.org/school) by the end of the day tomorrow. Lists will also be available on the Target website for easy online shopping!

***Important to note this year, students will not be sharing supplies with classmates so please label all items that a students would place in their desk or individual storage space. Supplies like paper towels, napkins, Kleenex etc. do not need to be labeled.

Monies raised will be used to help grow the program and obtain safety items necessary for this year.
