Thank You!!

We would like to thank everyone for their support of the 25th Anniversary Celebration! We had a wonderful night of strolling down memory lane as we joined together to celebrate and support Peabody School. We raised over $56,000 to support our greatest resource, our teachers! Thank you to Co-Chairs Jen Fleisher, Whitney Lyman, Heather Amato, and Marisa Vrooman and members of the auction committee for organizing a memorable evening!

Late Winter Session (Ceramics)
Game Night!

The 16th annual Peabody Game Night is right around the corner - and it's shaping up to be our most exciting one yet! This year's Game Night is March 6th from 6:30PM-8:00PM.

It takes a small army of volunteers to make Game Night fun and successful. We want to thank you immensely for your willingness to be a Game Master and to assist with setup and cleanup.  Please consider signing up to help setup and/or cleanup or to run a game table!


If you're signing up to be a Game Master, please select a game from the list (please let us know if you'll need us to provide the game or if you can bring your own) OR choose a slot to Bring Your Own! and add your game's name in the comments.

If you're signing up to help with setup or cleanup, please note that both of these jobs involve heavy lifting and carrying of tables and chairs, so it's not ideal for anyone with back issues or other injuries.

Please contact Shannon Walsh if you have questions or need assistance with the signup. Thank you!
