Greeting Presentation Families!

We hope you and your family are well. God has blessed us with several beautiful sunny days this summer. I hope you and your family have been able to get outside and explore the great outdoors.

The Presentation staff and I have been working very hard these past two weeks developing our reopening plan. We will be finalizing it early next week and plan to share the first draft with the SAC committee by the end of next week. Each family will receive a booklet with all the new protocols we will be implementing this fall. Our goal is to keep our school open by keeping everyone as safe and healthy as we can. Watch for more information about Presentation’s reopening plan via our website, social media, school updates, and more. Please note school class supply lists will also have a few additional items added. We hope to have them updated by next week.

In the next couple of weeks, we will be interviewing for three teaching positions. Sarah Hoppe will be moving to first grade, which will open up a Kindergarten teaching position. Alison Prahl is moving up to Middle School to teach ELA and our new Amplify science curriculum. This opens up a fifth grade teaching position. We will also be hiring a new middle school math/STEM/technology teacher. First and foremost, please pray for God to send us three amazing teachers to join our team. If you know of anyone who might be interested, please have them send me their resume and 3 reference letters ( slovegreen@presentationofmary.org ). I am confident God will call the right teachers to join our team.

Thank you to all the families who attended one of the three Meet & Greets this past week. It was great to meet all of you and hear about your hopes and dreams for the 2020-21 school year. We will walk this journey together with God and come out stronger than ever. I look forward to meeting the rest of you and all of your wonderful children. We plan to provide opportunities for the students and I to meet in August before school starts on Monday, August 31 st .

May God continue to bless you and your family with His love, peace, and grace.

Enrollment
Great news! Over the past 2 weeks we have 6 potential NEW students that are touring and looking to enroll at Presentation. There has been a climb in our enrollment numbers over the past month, and with the addition of new Principal Sue Lovegreen, it is great to see this steady increase. Please enroll your children today if you have not yet on myTADS.com . Principal Sue Lovegreen will be calling some of our families in the near future to discuss our enrollment process and plans. She has also had the opportunity to meet many of you in person at our recent Meet & Greet sessions and sincerely enjoyed that opportunity and we hope you did too.

There have been a few questions on enrollment in the Middle School. To answer these questions… Presentation's current enrollment grade by grade for the Middle School is: eight in 6 th , nine in 7 th , and five in 8 th . We are planning for each Middle School grade to have their own classroom - no combining of classes. There are still 5 remaining pending students for our middle school on top of 2 potential new students. Outside of our middle school enrollment is still on the rise and looking better each day. We are looking forward to seeing everyone in the fall.
