 News From the Principal, Cynthia Loring

From Presumpscot’s Family Council:

 I hope the transition back to school has treated you all well and that you are excited for another awesome year!

We need your continued involvement with two important items.

 The first is our next Family Council meeting, which will be held on Tuesday, October 2 at 8:45 in the Presumpscot Welcoming Room.

 The Family Council is involved in many different aspects of school life including family events,  resources/materials for students, fundraising for events, overseeing the longest running  parent/community volunteer basketball league in New England,  community barbecues, movie nights, rollerskating and a host of safe and welcoming events to bring our community together.

 To continue with this level of support, we need continued involvement from every member of our school community.  If you cannot make next Tuesday’s meeting and will be involved in one small or big way, please send us an email at .  Whether it be time, talent, or tithe, there is always a way to be involved.

 Secondly, a very important part to the district’s “right sizing” plan, is occurring here at Presumpscot School on October 15 at 5:30pm.  This is the event Presumpscot has been waiting 10 years for. The school district has contracted with Davis Demographics to do a citywide analysis of school facilities, enrollment and capacity to create cost efficiencies and determine if school consolidations and closings are warranted.  

This meeting is your chance to show why Presumpscot School is such a vital part of our community.  If there is only one event you can attend this year, this is THE EVENT.  Our school’s future is what is at stake here.

 Thank you for your ongoing involvement in our school and community.  We look forward to seeing you on October 15 and throughout the year at school events.
