Dear Parents,

Thank you to all the parents that were able to attend the Parents’ Guild meeting this week.  If you were unable to attend, I will be sending home a power point information regarding the new Report Cards on Monday.  Also, please keep your eyes opened for Heritage Day letters from your child’s Class Parents.  Please fill these out and return them so these Class Parents can organize this event.

2nd Grade Reconciliation – Our thoughts and prayers are with our 2nd Grade class who will be receiving the sacrament of Reconciliation tomorrow.

Catholic School Week Breakfast and events– We have added more events to the Catholic School week activities and will be sending the schedule home on Monday.  Please don’t forget to get  your reservation in for the school breakfast which will be held on January 29 after the 10:00 a.m. Read More →


Dear Parents,

Please don’t forget that we are off on Monday, January 16th in honor of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day.  The students have been doing projects and reports on Dr. King, and remembering this important Civil Rights leader.  We can also use Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. Day as a chance to start the year off right by making an impact in our community, reminding the students to volunteer their time and talents to others. Please continue at home what we have been going over in school honoring Dr. King.

Congratulations – to our 8th Grade students!  They have been receiving their High School acceptance letters, and I must say how proud both myself and the faculty and staff are of them on these acceptances and scholarship achieved.

Dear Parents,

Welcome back and Happy New Year!  On behalf of the faculty and staff of Transfiguration School, we would like to thank all of the families who participated in the Faculty Christmas gift.  We are so greatful and appreciate your generosity.

New Report Cards – As mentioned in one of my earlier emails, the Archdiocese has offered to hold meetings for parents to attend to discuss the changes on the report cards which will be incorporated on the 2nd quarter Report Cards.  The meeting was held last night in Our Lady of Sorrows in White Plains.  Unfortunately, only one parent from Transfiguration School attended this meeting with Ms. Fazzino and I.  The changes on the report cards will allow us to communicate more clearly about what standards your child has mastered and the areas in which he/she needs more practice and support.  Read More →


Dear Parents,

I hope you had an opportunity to come to the Christmas festivities last weekend here at The Transfiguration School.  Last year I came, and talked and met grandparents, siblings, but this year, I decided to volunteer my time to this event.  So I know how much effort, hours, coordination, dedication, and committment went into make this a successful event.  There is no way I can begin to thank the committee chairs and the Parents’ Board for all their support.  Mr. & Mrs. Rooney along with Mr. & Mrs. Agro, Mrs. Bourekas, Mr. Croce, Mrs. Doyle, Mrs. Kennedy, &  Mrs. McNally, and all the many volunteers that came in to work the book fair, craft fair, and Tree and Wreath sale and sell food.    If you happen to see any of the volunteers that helped out, please thank them for all their hard work to our school.

Dear Parents,

The faculty and I feel the Parent/Teacher conferences went very smoothly yesterday.  As stated earlier, this was a good opportunity for you to discuss your child/children academic growth as well as find out more about the new changes to the Report Cards beginning in the Second Quarter.

Today the students enjoyed an assembly with visitors from Paws for Cause the Animal Shelter in Elmsford.  The students we able to meet “Yellow” a sweet lab mix dog from the shelter.  The visitors explained how the shelter worked and how they go about the adoption process.  I am happy to announce that our very own Mrs. Holodak adopted “Yellow”.  Her family is so happy and we are thrilled that he is in a happy home.
