News and Notes
Happy Monday! I hope you enjoyed your first weekend of Spring.
I am pleased to announce that we will have individual school pictures on May 3rd. The pictures will be taken outside. Children must be in Winter uniform, no gym uniforms that day. More details will be sent as we get closer to the date. Summer uniforms will start on Tuesday, May 4th.
The Parent Guild is holding an Easter Dessert Sale! Flyers were sent home today via backpack and I have attached it below. All orders are due this Friday, March 26th. Cakes will be picked up next Wednesday, March 31st.
Please continue to keep the 2nd graders in your prayers as they receive their First Reconciliation. Congratulations to Vivienne and Avery who received this holy Sacrament this past Saturday.
We have a few important deadlines coming up for the 21-22 school year:
- Transportation must be requested from your school districts by April 1st.
- Early Bird Discounted Registration Fee of $125 ends on April 15th. Any child registered after this date will be charged a registration fee of $225.
Thank you and have a wonderful week!
Lenten Service Projects
MARCH 25 - Charity Dress Down for HOPE Community Services - On Thursday, March 25, Transfiguration School will be hosting a "Toiletries Drive" for the benefit of HOPE Community Services in New Rochelle, NY. One of our 8th-Grade students, Will Dillon, and his family have been involved with HOPE for many years.
Please bring in a toiletry item that day or a suggested $2.00 donation in exchange for a dress-down day. Please bring donations directly to your homeroom teacher that morning. Participation is optional and school uniforms may also be worn.
ON-GOING - Transfiguration Church is currently collecting Newborn and Size 1 Diapers and Baby Wipes for the Open Door Family Medical Center located in Sleepy Hollow and Ossining. Any day the Church doors are open, your donations of unopened packages may be left in the Green Bin just inside the Church door OR you may send them in to school with your child.
