Operation Warm

 

PVMS PTO would like to ensure that every child is warm through the winter months. How can this happen? It starts with you! Every $20 donated provides a high quality brand new winter coat to a Preston child. Our community has 100 children in need of a coat. This will change their lives.

Visit Preston, CT - Operation Warm, or make a donation at the PVMS office by issuing checks payable to PVMS PTO (memo: Operation Warm). Let's make sure the children in our community are safe and warm during the 2016/2017 winter season.

Welcome to Preston Public Schools!

Enrolling over 400 students, Preston Public Schools comprises Preston Veterans’ Memorial School (PK-5) and Preston Plains Middle School (6-8). Upon completion of the eighth grade program, Preston students have the option of attending Norwich Free Academy (Designated High School), Ledyard High School, Ledyard Agri-Science High School, Grasso Vocational Technical High School, Norwich Vocational-Technical School, New London Science and Technology High School, or Marine Science High School.

As a school district, we are committed throughout our organization to ensuring that children receive an excellent education and enjoy their experience in Preston. Ideal teacher-student ratios in conjunction with a focused academic program accompanied by appropriate support services are designed to guarantee that every child has a successful experience.

We also place a great deal of emphasis on developing a strong school-home partnership. Parents are welcome in our schools and play an active role as evidenced by the presence of parent volunteers and two active parent-teacher organizations. Our efforts always pay dividends and complement our personal commitment to the 4 C’s – communication, coordination, cooperation, and collaboration.

As the district’s superintendent, I am also conscious of the importance of creating goals that guide our efforts. Toward that end, the following goals for the 2016-2017 school year provide a perspective on what we expect to accomplish this year. You may also find the accompanying recapitulation of previous year's goals of interest as well.

In conclusion, I am delighted that you chose to visit our webpage and take a tour. Upon completion of the tour, please do not hesitate to contact me if you have any questions or would like further information about Preston Public Schools.
