News and Notes
Dear Transfiguration Families,
Happy Monday! I hope you had a great weekend. October is really flying by! Don't forget that this Thursday is a no school day for students, due to a conference for our teachers.
Thank you for your renewed effort in drop off and pick up line to speed up the line. I appreciate it!
As the weather gets colder, please remember that only uniform jackets, sweaters and sweatshirts can be worn in the building. Liebmans has a lot of new warm wear so be sure to check it out.
8th Grade parents, make sure to register for TACHS by this Sunday, Oct. 24th, 11:59PM as that is the deadline for the TACHS Test registration.
Have a great week,
Service Program Update!
REAL KIDS WEAR PINK DAY! - FRIDAY, OCTOBER 22
Don't forget Friday is Real Kids Wear Pink Day! All students are invited to wear pink and help raise awareness in the fight against breast cancer. The suggested donation to participate in our charity dress-down is $2.00. All proceeds will be donated to the American Cancer Society® of Hudson Valley, Westchester & Fairfield County in support of the "Real Kids Wear Pink" campaign.
The PreK classes are doing a great job with this fundraiser! They are really showing up the K-8 classes! Let's get selling. We have one more week to sell and are so close to reaching our $5,000 goal!
Congratulations to our top three sellers this week:
VALENTINA CHERON PK4
MARIELLA RICCIARDELLA PK3

Keep on selling to support our school!

*As you begin to plan for Halloween Costumes, please keep the following standards in mind:
-no scary, gory or inappropriate costumes (ask teacher/principal if you are unsure)
-no costumes that depict inappropriate characters or characters that are not positive examples for children in the world today
-no evil villains of any kind (so Batman is ok but NOT the Joker for example)
-no masks/face coverings or full face paint
-no props that depict weapons of any kind
-skirts must be no shorter than 2 inches above the knee
-students MUST wear tennis shoes with their costumes SO if the character normally wears sandals, for example, your child MUST wear sneakers.
-No blow up costumes.
