Transition to High School Events
We would like to share some information about upcoming high school transition events. The transition to high school can be an exciting but also anxiety provoking experience. In the past, Peabody has hosted various activities to help with this transition. We will be offering two opportunities for our students and families to help ease the transition to high school.
A student alumni panel will be held on the evening of
March 3rd from
5:15-6:15 right before Game Night. We are inviting alumni from different schools to come talk with our Grade 8 students about what to expect as they get ready for high school. This will be a student only event.
Additionally, we are organizing a parent coffee hour for sometime in mid April for alumni parents to have the opportunity to speak with our 8th grade parents. We are working out the details and will get a date to you ASAP. This is a parent only event.
You may noticed a High School Transition Night scheduled on the paper calendar your received in the beginning of the year. In lieu of that night, these two events will replace that single event. We hope that you find these two new events helpful for both you and your children.
If there any topics that would be useful for our alumni or alumni parents to speak about, please forward them to Mr. Orlando's attention and he will pass them along.
Thanks for your support of your children here at school. Please email
if you have any questions.
