Greetings!

I feel so blessed to be in my 7th year as principal of this fabulous school.  22 years ago I actually began my teaching career right here within the walls of Vinton Elementary School.  After teaching at 3 other schools, returning to Vinton was one of the best opportunities I could have asked for! 

Like you, my family is the most important thing to me.  I have 3 children:  Samantha (Sophomore at IU), TJ (Senior at Lafayette Jefferson High School) and Brady (Freshman at Lafayette Jefferson High School).  They keep me on my toes and driving around town A LOT!  My husband, Mark, is the Principal at Lafayette Jefferson High School. 

To say our family is invested in the Lafayette School Corporation would be an understatement.  Having all three of our children grow-up in the LSC has been the best decision we've ever made.  We are extremely proud to be part of the LSC family and we wouldn't want our family anywhere else.

I'm excited to work together with the Vinton community of parents, staff and volunteers to help make our students the best they can be.  These kids are truly AMAZING individuals.  It's our job to work together to guide each of them to achieve their true potential. 

Thanks for being part of the Vinton Team!  "Once a Viking, always a Viking!"

Yours in education,
Cindy Preston
Principal, Vinton Elementary School
