Thanks, Peabody Parents!

Middle School "Panther Corps" students would like to send a big thanks to the many families who supported their projects this month.

Luke donated the many bicycles and bike parts that he collected to the IRC.

Knox & Heming want to say: " Thank you so much for donating items to our household item drive! We got so many more donations than we expected. The IRC is quite happy with all the donations and they will put them to a good use. We also had a nice variety of stuff, from linens to blenders. We had to take three trips with a cart to collect all the items! Thanks again!"

8th graders (with the help of the Peabody Panther) delivered over 100 stuffed animals to students yesterday for their Valentine's Day fundraiser. They raised over $500 which will go directly to their legacy project!

Thanks for supporting our students!

Say "Fromage!"

In grade 5 French class, students concluded a unit on geography and the new regions of France with a “Tour de France du fromage” activity. They all went on a “cheese quest” in town and then presented a piece of cheese to their classmates during a scrumptious tasting class... Miam!
Merci for your support dear parents! -Madame Meyer
