Compassion Matters... Pass It On! 10-5-22
The Compassion Connection Club is back! The biggest club in Preston kicked off their first meeting of the school year with 140 sandwiches for the hungry ministered to by Lamp Ministries and 40 candy bags and 40 cards for senior citizens from the Preston Center of Compassion! We are so happy to be back and have a strong start! Exactly 100 students were in attendance. Let's go Compassion Panthers!
Compassion Matters... Pass It On! 10-4-22
On September 16th, the Preston High School community gathered in the gym to root for the Junior Varsity and Varsity volleyball panthers. Our volleyball players took on Maria Regina High School, in tribute to Amanda Tamburrino, Preston senior, who passed away on September 13th after her difficult battle with Hodgkin's Lymphoma. Our Panthers ran a bake sale and collected entrance fees at the door. $3,411 were raised! In Amanda's memory, all of these proceeds will be donated to the Westchester Medical Center for Hodgkin's Lymphoma research. As students, faculty, family, and guests sported their best purple attire for Hodgkin's Lymphoma awareness, there was not a dry eye in the gym and there has never been a bigger sense of Panther pride in these hallways!

Preston's Compassion Connection Is Back In Action!!
After an EXTREMELY long 18 months, Compassion Connection has finally met again in person with record-breaking numbers! For our first meeting of the year, 134 students attended, beating typical first club meeting attendance by 40 students! To welcome everyone back, we did what we do best - we made sandwiches. Being able to come together again after such a long time has truly brought the compassion out in our club members. Students were all so excited to be back in room 100 together again. We made over 325 sandwiches, which were then picked up by Lamp Ministries to be distributed to the hungry on the streets of the Bronx and Manhattan.
