Focus on
Third grade celebrated the culmination of the Independent Book Project today.  We came in costume, dressed as a character in the book they read, and we had a pot-luck lunch with food that the characters might have eaten.  We feasted on bacon, raw garlic, pancakes, sandwiches and more desserts than can be named!  We showed off our dioramas, movies, powerpoint projects and written assignments (which will soon hang in the hallway.)  Stop by and take a look!
Thank you for Supporting the
Peabody School Annual Fund!

2015-2016 Annual Report Online

As we near the end of year, we would like to say "thank you" to everyone who continued to make Peabody an amazing place for students to learn and grow. 

We are asking for your support again this year. As is common in independent schools, tuition does not cover the cost of a Peabody education.The Annual Fund is critical in helping us retain our amazing teachers, provide financial aid to families, and to make sure that we have the most up to date resources available to our students. Please support our school!

Thank you to everyone ( donor roll) who has already made a gift! We are aiming for 100% participation from our families. For more information about the Annual Fund, please
