Toronto Catholic District School Board

PRINCIPAL’S MESSAGE
                                                                            
 
In 2010, Transfiguration of Our Lord celebrated its 50th anniversary. A large photo of all present day students and staff can be found at the entrance of the school to commemorate this important milestone in Catholic Education. As stated in the Board’s mission statement, we believe that our students are entitled to have access to an excellent education in which Catholic faith and Christian values are an integral part of the curriculum and school life. All students, staff, parents and community members are to be treated with respect and dignity. It is our goal to meet the physical, emotional, social, intellectual and spiritual needs of each student. The school, its families and Transfiguration of Our Lord Catholic Church work very closely in partnership to achieve this goal.
 
Through our School Learning Improvement Plan, we attempt to identify our school's strengths and areas of need. We examine school data (Running Records, Ontario Comprehensive Assessments, Reaching Readers, Report Cards, etc.) and other assessment data (EQAO, CAT 4) to inform our instructional practices. The school uses the School Effectiveness Framework to guide and support school improvement and student success. The school's focus is assessment for, as, and of learning.
 
Teachers work collaboratively with each other and share successful teaching strategies to assist students in their learning. Our students, families and school staff are very proud of our involvement in social justice issues such as the Terry Fox Walk, Jump Rope for Heart, Food Drives, CHUM City Toy Drive, Me to We, etc.). It's a wonderful testament to our school's generosity and care for others.
 
Transfiguration of Our Lord's Catholic School Advisory Council (CSAC) works closely with staff at Transfiguration to supplement and enhance our students’ academic, athletic and spiritual school experiences. They include: Halloween Dance, Scientists in the School, Dance Sessions, Family Christmas Night, and Community Barbecue, to name a few.
We are most proud of all students as they work towards fulfilling the Ontario Catholic School Graduate Expectations: A Discerning Believer Formed in the Catholic Faith Community, An Effective Communicator, A Reflective, Creative and Holistic Thinker, A Self-Directed, Responsible, Life Long Learner, A Collaborative Contributor, A Caring Member and A Responsible Citizen.
 
We are blessed to have a school where students come first and where all stakeholders work collaboratively and enthusiastically to make this happen.
