Counselor In Training at Camp Invention
This summer, MS students have the opportunity to be  Counselors-in-Training (CIT) at Camp Invention. It's a great way for your rising 7th-9th grader to enjoy a week of creativity & hands-on fun, but also gain leadership training and mentoring skills. This summer, Camp Invention will run July 24-28th, from 9-3:30 daily in the Batten Building. Videos showing camp activities can be found on Youtube, and registration is done directly through Camp Invention's website (fee is $230.) If you have question, please contact Mrs. Brudin.

Peabody Parent Forum (PPF)

Thank you to all the parents and to Mr. Orlando for coming out to the evening PPF meeting on Tuesday! We only have one scheduled PPF meeting left on May 26th at 8:15 AM.  It’s scheduled near the end of the year so we can finalize plans for any summer meetings and review any major plans for next year’s PPF.  Please plan to attend this meeting if you’d like to be considered for a PPF Officer position

We have some great things already in store for next year, including a Fall Fun Run and Festival!  We are already putting out feelers for sponsors so if your company is kid-appropriate and is interested in sponsoring, please drop me an email Shannon Walsh ( and I’ll get a sponsorship form out to you as soon as we have them available.   

Teacher Appreciation Week
Of course, the next big PPF event this year is Teacher Appreciation Week!  Peabody will be observing May 1st through the 5th this year.  We have several things in the works including daily gifts/activities and a lunch to celebrate the teachers and staff that work so hard every day to take such good care of our kids.  
This is funded completely from voluntary parent contributions.  Cash donations are encouraged and should be left in the PPF/suggestion locked box - that's the small black box at the top of the ramp in the original building. Please note, the office has been asked not to take contributions. They should only be placed in the locked box with a deadline of TUESDAY, APRIL 25th.

Please let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to get you an answer as quickly as possible.

Thank you!
Shannon Walsh
PPF President
