I feel so blessed to be in my 12th year as principal of this fabulous school.  It was 27 years ago I actually began my teaching career right here within the walls of Vinton Elementary School.  After teaching at three 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 three children:  Samantha (JHS Class of 2017 and Earhart Elementary Teacher), TJ (JHS Class of 2019) and Brady (JHS Class of 2022).  They keep me on my toes and busy! My husband, Mark, is the Principal at Lafayette Jefferson High School. 

To say our family is invested in the Lafayette School Corp. would be an understatement. Having all three of our children grow up in the LSC and graduate from Lafayette Jeff High School 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 Family! "Once a Viking, ALWAYS a Viking!"

Yours in education,
Cindy Preston
Principal, Vinton Elementary School
