Wishing you a Wonderful Holiday!

We would like to thank you for all of the generous gifts! We feel so fortunate to have such wonderful families! Peabody will be closed from December 20th through January 2nd. We will welcome our students back on January 3rd, 2018. We wish you a relaxing and joyful time with your families!
January Shoe Drive

Peabody will once again be a drop-off location for the Salvation Army Winter Shoe Drive. Please bring any shoes you would like to donate to the drive to school and deposit into the box by the main hallway. The drive ends January 31st. Thank you for your support!
World Peace Game

Our fifth grade students will be participating in the World Peace Game this spring and we are in need of your help!

As we prepare to offer this to our students, we need your help to build the board. Please see the sign-up genius for pieces needed for us to play the game and if you are willing donate anything, please drop it off in the main office. Used pieces are more than acceptable. Thanks!

Parent Information Center

  • LearningRx is looking for a few volunteer students (ages 7 - 17) to work with four of their newest brain trainers as they complete the practical portion of their certification from December 18-31. If you have a child who would be interested in feeling what brain training is all about, and could be available for two or more one-hour periods those weeks, please email the LearningRx Charlottesville center at charlottesville.va@learningrx.net or call 220-7475 with your name and the name and age of the individual for training, available days/times, and contact details. Preference will be given to students who can commit to two or more sessions during those weeks. We may also work with parents if we have availability and can coordinate so feel free to express interest.

  • This is a friendly reminder that the deadline to order lunch is Wednesday the week before to allow us time for payment, processing and placing orders with our vendors. January 3rd is the deadline to order lunch for the week of January 8th.
