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!

PVMS PTO Activities Calendar

  

Wondering what the PVMS PTO does?  Here's our planned calendar of events and activities for the year!

 2018-2019 PVMS PTO Events Calendar 

We've Got Spirit Sticks!

  

Spirit Sticks are just $1 each!  

Kids love them!  They attach them to their backpacks to show off their school spirit!  

We have many different styles and you can purchase them in the school office!

Amazon Smile!

Just go to smile.amazon.com and search for: Preston Veterans Memorial Pto

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!
