Welcome from the PVMS PTO

The PVMS PTO is a volunteer organization made up of parents, caregivers, teachers, administrators, and support staff who all are dedicated to the successful education of our children.

The purpose of our organization is to aid the students and staff by providing support for educational and recreational needs; to promote open communication between the administration, teachers, and parents; as well as to encourage school spirit and pride.  The PTO uses its resources,  both manpower and monetary, to support our school community.

We encourage you to get involved!

Upcoming PTO Meetings for 2016-2017

The next meeting will be scheduled in August to plan for the upcoming school year and elect officers.  Thanks for a great year!

Announcements

  • Thanks! Palooza was FUNtastic!

    Thank you to all the families that participated in our 4th Preston Palooza!  The day was bigger than ever with multiple bounce houses and inflatable obstacle courses.  We had a petting zoo.  Human soccer balls were all over the field playing Knocker Ball again this year.  The henna tattoos were extremely popular.  Many students took advantage of getting their character drawn!  The dunk tank was very busy and popular all evening!  This year we had a DJ spin music for the cake walk.  The Preston Fire Department was busy creating tons of fun play foam for the kids.  The State Police vehicle was spectacular.  The carnival games continued to bring out smiles and challenges!  Plus, we were visited by Picachu, Chewbacca, and Puppy Patrol throughout the night!  Naturally, we also had tons of food... from the BBQ to the snow cones... to the cotton candy... to popcorn!  It was one fantastic party!

    A HUGE thank you to the 60 volunteers... from parents, teachers, staff, administrators, BoE members, BoF members, and community members!  Without your help, we could not have created such an incredible night!  Thank you!
