Welcome Incoming 6th Grade Preston families!

We are very excited to have your child join the Preston Middle School family.  We are committed to your child and your family for the next three years.  During your child’s experience at Preston he/she will engage in meaningful learning, will learn to work collaboratively with peers, and will have many different opportunities to explore.

We hope you are able to join us on Tuesday, January 9, 2018 for our Incoming 6th grade Open House. Families are invited to learn more about our robust curriculum and student opportunities. Families can walk through classrooms, meet teachers, and engage in discussions about student learning during the Open House.

Amy Schmer, Principal, will give opening remarks at 6:00 pm and at 7:00 pm to accommodate all families. We encourage families to attend one of the opening remark sessions, as both sessions will be the same. Our staff is excited to meet our incoming Pumas.

As you think about your child’s transition into middle school there will be several more opportunities for your child to spend more time at Preston. All incoming 6th graders will travel to Preston by bus on Friday, May 4, 2018. During this special transition event on May 4th, students will participate in an all school assembly, walk the halls, and observe a portion of a typical day in the life of a Preston Puma.  

Please visit our Preston website at for up-to-date information about academics, athletics, student clubs and activities, our awesome pumas, and much more. We will continue to communicate upcoming transitional dates and information to ensure your family is well-informed with all the Preston happenings.

Preston is truly an incredible school with an amazing staff, student body, and families. We look forward to your family joining our Puma community!
