There are so many ways to get involved in the Presentation of Mary School community – and every single one of them makes a big difference. Whether you join a committee, help organize an event, or help in a classroom once in a while – your support matters. We urge you to consider giving of some of your time to help our school grow and thrive for years to come!
School Advisory Commission (SAC)
The School Advisory Commission (SAC) is called to a positive, forward-looking model of discussion intended to help the school realize ongoing goals and objectives that enhance student learning and character formation. It is the principal consultative body to the Principal and the Pastor, and as such, exists to offer advice in certain matters of school development, but does not make administrative decisions. The SAC is not a governing board or executive committee and does not follow the model of an elected public school board. The SAC meets every other month throughout the school year.
Current School Advisory Commission Members
- Ryan McLaughlin (Chair)
- Bruce Howell
- Dawn Diatta
- Mike Picha
- Jen Major
- Jay Wegwerth
- Sue Lovegreen, School Principal
- Father Toulee Peter Ly, Pastor
Parents of Presentation Students (POPS)
POPS supports Presentation of Mary School through fundraising, volunteerism, promotions, and development resulting in the best Catholic education that we can provide for our children. We establish a calendar budget, list of activities to support, and a yearly tangible goal benefiting the Presentation of Mary student body.
Membership: POPS membership is open to parents/guardians and faculty of Presentation of Mary School. This organization strongly encourages and highly recommends active participation to ensure successful endeavors. Time spent volunteering for fundraisers and spirit events counts towards your volunteer hour requirement.
All money raised goes directly back to the school. The majority of fundraising is given to the church for school operating funds, other uses for funds raised include:
- Field trips
- Classroom start up expenses
- Spirit events (bonfire, ice skating, Halloween party, etc.)
- End of year teacher breakfast
Contact the school office if you would like to be involved in POPS.
