Karen Loomis, Treasurer
Karen learned of Setauket Presbyterian Preschool when she observed the 4’s class for a college course she was taking. Based on the curriculum, the teachers, the surroundings, and all that the school encompassed, she knew she would one day send her children to SPP. In 1992, she sent her first son, and two others followed in 1995 and in 2001, commuting from Rocky Point. In 1996, she took over the duties of Treasurer.
