News From the Principal, Cynthia Loring

Mrs. Loring
     Welcome!  Presumpscot School is an Expeditionary Learning school that is located in the East Deering neighborhood of Portland, Maine. 
      Learning occurs through grade-level expeditions (in-depth studies of a topic or theme) that are aligned with the Common Core and Maine State Standards.
      The fundamental idea behind Expeditionary Learning is that students learn more by experiencing the world than by sitting in a classroom listening to a teacher talk about it.  During expeditions students are involved in in-depth investigations of a topic that engages them  in the world around them with authentic projects, fieldwork and service-learning projects.
     Another important quality of our school community is our Presumpscot Promise which focuses on the 6 Character Traits: 

Responsibility
Respect
Perseverance
Compassion
Collaboration 
Honesty

     Presumpscot Students will be performing a musical theater production of the Lion King! Ms. McKenna will also be creating a chorus of fourth and fifth graders to sing in the production. Rehearsals will be Monday and Friday after school from 3:15-4:30, and some Wednesday mornings for larger parts, and will begin the week of February 9th. We are also looking for parents to help in variety of ways. Right now especially needed are carpenters, and costume designers. Please contact Ms. Ericson at ericsp@portlandpublicschools if you are able to help with the production.
