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!

 2018-2019 PVMS PTO Events Calendar 

PVMS Wall of Fame!

  

The PVMS PTO  Wall of Fame bulletin board is located outside the main office heading toward the gym and recognizes students, teachers, bus drivers, school employees, volunteers, or anyone in our school community who goes above and beyond to make our school year a great one.

When you see someone in our school community go above and beyond, or do something positive, please let us know about it! You can use the form HERE, or reach out to Mariah Hornsby (MariahLHornsby@gmail.com) with the following information:

  • Name of Individual

  • Grade or Position in our School Community

  • A few details of what they did to make PVMS great, a thank you, or whatever you think they should be recognized for.

  • Optional: Your name

    Need some ideas? Remember these are just a few, but anything that makes our school a better place is fair game!

  • Did you see someone from our community help someone else?
  • Did someone come up with a great idea?
  • Has someone been working really hard?
  • Does someone always bring a positive attitude to school?
  • Did someone exemplify our school values?

After you have found someone to nominate, email the information to Mariah Hornsby or deliver it to the PTO mailbox. There is no limit to the number of times or people you can nominate!

We cannot wait to see all the great things that our PVMS community does!

Box Tops for Education

 

 Box Tops can be found on many products.  They are worth ten cents for each one redeemed.  It may not sound like much, but over the last ten years the PVMS PTO has earned over $18,000 by just mailing in Box Tops!  It's that simple!  

To help, all you need to do is: (1) cut out Box Tops that have not expired yet (expired Box Tops cannot be submitted and will not count toward student and classroom rewards), (2) be sure the code in the corner and the expiration date is visible, and (3) send them in to the school in an envelope with your student's name, grade, and teacher!  Our goal is to raise $2000 in Box Tops this year!  (If you don't have a student, just bring them to the school or the Preston Public Library!  We appreciate your support!)

As an added incentive, the PTO each month presents the top student with a certificate and the top class wins a popsicle party and a certificate to display in the classroom.  At the end of the year, the top 3 PVMS student collectors will receive a trophy at the awards assembly for submitting the most Box Tops!  Also, students who have brought in 100 or more Box Tops will receive a certificate at the end of the year!  Finally, the classroom that has contributed the most Box Tops at the end of the year will receive a certificate also!

Colorcycle!

    

In partnership with Crayola, we can repurpose used markers and turn them into energy!  Send in your unusable markers, dry erase markers, and even highlighters from any brand and place them in our colorful collection bin!  Crayola then takes care of the rest by covering shipping to send them to a facility where they will be converted into clean fuel.  This fuel can be used to power vehicles, heat homes, cook meals, and more!  Let's save our planet!
