What is the Parents’ Guild?
The Parents’ Guild is a volunteer organization designed with a mission based on the morals and values of the Catholic Faith and promoting the partnership between family and school. This partnership fosters the spiritual and educational development of our children through activities, communication, and effective collaboration.
How does the Guild support the school?
The Guild is a very active organization that supports our school in a variety of way through fundraising programs, student events and programs, and social activities for parents and families.
Come to a monthly Parents’ Guild meeting to learn what’s going on at our School; volunteer for fundraising projects and activities, serve on a committee, enjoy the camaraderie of other dedicated parents and volunteers, and get to know what Transfiguration School is all about!

Why get involved?
The involvement of parents plays an important role in the continued success of our students and our school. Transfiguration School has two very active parent organizations, the Parents’ Guild and the CYO Sports Program. These programs make a significant impact on our School, enriching the lives of our students, faculty, and coaches, beyond measure. Through their respective fundraising efforts, the Parents’ Guild and the CYO Sports Program are able to supplement programs that directly benefit our children.
