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.

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 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 fund raisers and spirit events counts towards your volunteer hour requirement.
POPS Fundraisers: Catholic Schools raffle and collection of Box Tops for Education.
All money raised goes directly back to the school. The majority of fund raising 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.

Catholic United Financial Raffle
Each Spring, Presentation School students (along with students of about 50 other Catholic Schools in Minnesota and neighboring states) sell tickets for a raffle sponsored by Catholic Financial. Prizes are donated by Catholic United Financial and typically include a car, vacation packages, sporting event tickets and a variety of other prizes. During the month of selling tickets, Presentation School students participate in pep rallies and contests that support the raffle. For more information, click here.
