Greetings to all of our Presentation Families,

We hope that you are all well and are able to get outside this weekend to enjoy the gifts of nature and time together.

One of my favorite songs is “We Are Many Parts” by Marty Haugen


This song seems so fitting for the journey we are walking together. We are all one body, one school, one community, one church - all part of God’s plan and body. There is one line I’d like us to focus on: “Let us be your love for all the world.” 

One way that we show God’s love to others is through our actions. We are so thankful for all of the volunteers who arrive early to help with morning carpool and those who have been coming to help with lunch & recess. You all are part of making our school community warm and welcoming to all. Our students feel loved and cared for. This is so important for the foundation of our students.

Another way we can show our love to each other is by being mindful of when our children are under the weather. It is so important for all of us to work together to minimize the risk of others getting sick. Please review the “Decision making tree” that is included in this update. We are many parts and all one body (one school body). In order for us to stay healthy we need students to stay home when they are sick and not to return to school until they are better.

Together we can be God’s love and grace to all who enter our doors.

Blessings to you and your family,

Sue Lovegreen, principal

Session for parents: Stress and Anxiety in School-Aged Children

Even before COVID, anxiety had become the most commonly diagnosed issue in classrooms across this country. Given the stress of this time, of disrupted school and more pressure on families, we are seeing a rise in the stress and anxiety demonstrated by children. In this session, you will learn concrete strategies to help your children become more resilient to stress and to better endure normal anxious feelings. You will also find tips to differentiate “normal” stress and anxiety responses from more serious symptoms, how to intervene without interfering, and when to seek help. 
September 15, 6:30 p.m.
September 21, 6:30 p.m.
