Catholic United Catholic Schools Raffle

raffle banner 2017

The 2017 Catholic United Catholic Schools Raffle is here and you can purchase tickets now through February 19th.

In the last three years, Presentation of Mary School has raised over $62,000 through the Catholic Schools Raffle, an annual fundraiser sponsored by Catholic United Financial. Tickets are $5, and you are able to purchase them from any student or staff member. You can also contact the school office at 651-777-5877 or send your ticket request and payment to Presentation of Mary School directly.

Presentation School keeps 100 percent of the ticket revenue, and we hope to raise $25,000 this year!  The Raffle prizes are pretty spectacular as well, like a brand-new Jeep, vacation trips, and technology prizes like iPad airs. More important than the prizes and goals, this fundraiser helps make possible the excellent standard of education that the school provides.

If you have any questions about the Raffle, contact Nikki Giel at ngiel@presentationofmary.org. To learn about other ways Catholic United Financial is supporting our Catholic community, contact our local Sales Representative Ryan Selleck at rselleck@catholicunited.org.


We Want To Hear From You!

Presentation is an accredited institution through MNSAA.  Accreditation delivers recognized credibility of the quality of a school program in the eyes of stakeholders and the public.  It also offers outside objective validation that a school has met high standards and is actively seeking a quality educational program.  Schools are on a seven year rotation, and we at Presentation are in year six.  We will be visited by a team of educators in the Spring of 2018.  Before our team arrives we need to complete a self-study of all we offer here at Presentation.  One way you can help in these first steps is to complete the survey we have created HERE.  This is an anonymous survey and the results will help steer our direction here at Presentation as we start to develop our strategic plan for the coming years.

Presentation School is deeply committed to the idea that no child should be denied a quality education on the basis of his or her family’s financial situation. The desire of the Presentation Parish administration team is that every child of our parish must be able to attend Presentation School. Therefore, we offer excellent financial aid packages. Contact our Principal, Nikki Giel at 651-842-6032 for more information.


Presentation School’s Challenge Grant Met!

Thank you to all who have donated to the Catholic School Center of Excellence challenge grant!  Thanks to your generosity we were able to meet the challenge in just over 2 months – that’s incredible!   We are fortunate here at Presentation to have two alumni who feel strongly about the education we are offering here at Presentation and who would like to see it continue for years to come.  They have put forward $10,000 as a matching grant!  Our goal is to meet this amount and bring in another $20,000 for our school!  Your support of Presentation of Mary School has been felt by the students and the parents – we are grateful to you!
