UNIFORM UPDATE ANNOUNCEMENT
We are in the process of undergoing an exciting brand change in order to keep our school current and respond to the trends and comforts families expect for their children's school. We are in the early stages of a new uniform design that is not only going to apply the new Transfiguration logo but it is also going to provide a more comfortable and flexible design for all students. Attire plays an important factor in the ability to learn. We have considered this and many other variables as we make this change.
In order to mitigate big expenses for families, we have actively collected and offered gently used uniforms to our current and incoming families. We have also encouraged families to purchase fewer items, especially those who typically purchase based on their child's anticipated growth.
After working with a uniform committee, we will introduce the new look of the uniform in the middle of academic year 2018–19 and all students will be required to wear the new uniforms in the 2019-20 academic year.
Fun History About Uniforms
Catholic Schools have been a growing sector of education in the United States since the early 1800s. Strict school uniforms have since been a telling quality of Catholic private schools, and selecting an appropriate dress code is crucial to school performance. Below will outline school uniforms throughout Catholic school history and highlight the changes that modern Catholic institutions are implementing, as well as suggest policies that will conform well with 21st century culture.
