Several common threads were discovered by each student as a result of SIP. These seven students realize the value and challenges of working independently, as well as staying motivated; and constructive criticism from peers led to improvement.
Considered to be an unlucky day, we’re feeling quite the opposite on this Friday the 13th. Friday, May 13, 2016 marks the day that the Class of 2016 officially joins the Alumnae Association, climbs to the fourth floor to sign the Tower, exits the historic building hand-in-hand through the Fourth Street doors, and is recognized for outstanding accomplishments over the last four years.

Following the Alumnae Brunch and Tower Signing, the community of Presentation gathered at Greater Bethel for the Annual Honors Day Program. See below for more details.
Saying goodbye is never easy. The last day of classes is bittersweet for any student, regardless of being so ready to go one could take off in a full sprint or being so reluctant to leave, it is paralyzing. As the Class of 2016 prepares for one of the most coveted Pres traditions (signing the iconic Tower and exiting the historic building through the stained-glass doors) tomorrow, today’s activities – to put it frankly – are just plain silly.
A rather recent tradition, Senior “Prank” Day, isn’t what it seems. Most would imagine a greased pig squealing through the halls, minor vandalism or a crude message displayed on the school’s marquee. And obviously these plans would be kept quiet, especially from administration. Not at Pres. Principal Barbara Wine is brought into the loop from the beginning. Each senior class plans an elaborate theme for their final day of classes, typically involving harmless activities, and is then approved by the principal. She often contributes to the various tricks. Themes of past years include beach day, zombies and Harry Potter.
The Class of 2016, on Thursday, May 12, 2016, the final day of classes at Presentation Academy, has devised a Senior Invasion. You’re now entering the Twilight Zone…
A handful of Pres Girls attend We Day Kentucky on Wednesday, April 21 at the Kentucky Center for the Arts. We Day, which coincides with Mayor Greg Fischer’s Give A Day initiative, is dedicated to engaging, inspiring and empowering young people to participate in local and global acts of service, kindness and compassion.
Juniors Bria Garner, Alea Luckett and Ellie Tolbert, part of a program sponsored by the Muhammad Ali Center called UCrew, took to the stage during We Day describing the importance of Ali’s legacy. The UCrew also helped facilitate a conference during lunch yesterday, answering the question, “What are you fighting for?”
Throughout the school year, the UCrew developed a product – a notebook and phone pocket – to sell for profit. The money collected will benefit the Kentucky Refugee Ministries, specifically a program known as Super Saturdays. Super Saturdays helps refugee teens with college readiness.
In the spirit of Catherine Spalding and the Sisters of Charity of Nazareth, Presentation Academy strives to create a diverse community that promotes academic excellence and challenges young women to develop their greatest potential as leaders in a global society.
