Commitment to Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion

Peabody is proud to have established a partnership with Virginia Center for Inclusive Communities (VCIC) in early 2020, and we are excited about our ongoing work with this organization in the new year. 

The focus of our work for the 2020-2021 school year has been nurturing an inclusive school community. This year, VCIC has facilitated quarterly workshops for our faculty and staff, provided strategic guidance to our school leadership, and will be offering virtual sessions for all Peabody middle school students focused on bias and inclusion. 

In addition, we will be offering parent focus groups this spring in partnership with VCIC aimed at learning more about the experiences of families and students in our school community. We are grateful that VCIC is partnering with us in this important work -- we will have more information about focus groups coming soon!
Welcome Back to Campus!

We are excited to welcome the children back to in-person instruction next week! As a reminder, please return technology items back to school.

K-3: IPads, Charging Cord, and Headphones
4/5: Chromebooks, Cases, and Chrargers

Please charge all devices Tuesday evening so that they are ready for class on Wednesday!

Your child's teacher will communciate with you about other items they may want returned next week.

Please check your child's mask to ensure that it will stay up and cover their nose at all times. You would be surprised how quickly the kids have grown since we were last in school! Please also remember to complete the online daily health screening on Wednesday morning as well.

Thank you!

2020-21 Annual Fund

Your participation in the Peabody Annual Fund provides essential operating support to Peabody. The generosity of our community supports almost everything that keeps Peabody running, from salaries and classroom technology to arts and supplies. This year, we are also faced with increased expenses for items such as technology infrastructure upgrades, outdoor learning spaces, additional cleaning supplies and protective equipment, and additional aid to Peabody students and families who felt the financial impact of COVID-19. We hope that you will support Peabody in this area and that you will keep in mind that your Annual Fund gift, of any size, really matters to the school. 

Thank you in advance for your consideration of a gift to Peabody School for the 2020-21 year and for being such strong supporters of our wonderful school!
