Our talent show was a huge success yesterday! Thank you to all of the students who performed. You were awesome! Today we had Field Day. The students and teachers had a wonderful time. Spirit Week comes to a close on Friday with our Day in the Life activity and pep rally. Ask your child about his or her busy week. This year parent night events were held, such as Back to School, Literacy Night, Math Night, and Science Fair. On Friday June 5, I will host a breakfast with the principal meeting at 8am. At this meeting, I will also have a representative from Catapult Learning available to discuss ways you can support your child’s learning during the summer months.
I hope your Memorial Day weekend was a restful one. The end of the year is approaching fast. This weekend, our 3rd grade teacher Ms. Warner, is going to attend a seminar for young African-American Catholics sponsored by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops and our 1st grade teacher, Ms. Watring is going to get married! Please keep both teachers in your prayers as they embark in their exciting journeys this weekend. Spirit Week is next week! Please read the following Spirit Week activities so that your child does not miss out on all the fun:
Today the 4th grade had their Moving Forward mass/celebration. It was a wonderful event. I am excited to see what the future holds for this awesome 4th grade class. 5th grade here they come! The candy drive has ended. Thank you for your support. We will have upcoming results in the weeks ahead.
Do you have talent? We will have our Spirit Week Talent Show on Wednesday June 3, 2015. Auditions for the Spirit Week Talent Show will take place Thursday May 28th afterschool from 2:15-3:30pm. All students must have appropriate music available for the auditions. Students are limited to participating in only 2 performances for the talent show.
May is certainly moving along quite rapidly. Within our school community many relatives of our students and faculty have fallen ill. I ask that you continue to pray for all of those who are ill at this time. In addition, as a community of faith, it is also important to celebrate members of our school family who will partake in the sacrament of First Communion on Sunday. All are welcome to celebrate at the 12:15pm. All students in school uniform will receive a free dress pass.
Our Spring Recital and 1st Annual Mother’s Day Tea were huge successes. Thank you for attending and showing your support. I look forward to next year!
In honor of our mother Mary, today we said a decade of the rosary led by our 3rd grade class, following the rosary our 1st and 8th grade classes led our May Crowning Mass. It was beautiful. 3rd, 1st, and 8th grades did an excellent job today honoring our holy mother Mary.
Our Spring Recital is tonight! Invite your family and friends to see the wonderful talent present here at Transfiguration School. Girls are to wear knee or below, spring colored dresses and boys should wear white collared shirts, with black pants, and a spring colored tie or bowtie.
The World’s Finest Chocolate Candy drive has begun and ends on May 15! This is our LAST fundraiser. Our school receives 50% profit from all sales. Please pick up your candy box in the main office. Families are only permitted to pick up one box at a time without prepayment.
Our trip to the Alvin Ailey performance, as well as the LMU “Lion for the Day”, visit were excellent field trips that allowed the students to see an actual dance performance as well as experience life on campus as a college student.
Our Mother's Day Tea is slowly approaching. It will take place on Saturday May 2, from 11:30-1:30pm. This tea will be a wonderful environment for fun, fellowship, and food for our grandmothers, aunts, mothers, and daughters.

This week our Pre-K visited the Noah's Ark exhibit at the Skirball Center, while the middle school attended a special performance of Alvin Ailey. Next Monday, grades 3-6 and 8th grade will visit LMU for our annual "Lion for the Day" campus tour. This trip will be a wonderful learning opportunity for the students.
Thank you to those families who supported the Lenten Fish Fry. We were able to raise $2,529 to support our school. The money raised will assist with refurbishments on campus.
