Shoes for the Homeless

It is that time of year where we collect shoes for those in need through the annual "Let Someone Fill Your Shoes" campaign. Peabody has participated in this worthy event for many years and we not only collect shoes for the homeless, we are also a drop off location. The Let Someone Fill Your Shoes campaign is cosponsored by local area podiatrists and the Salvation Army. You may deposit new or lightly used, clean shoes in one of the large boxes located by the front doors of the school buildings during drop off or pick up times. Please feel free to take advantage of this opportunity to clean out the clutter of shoes no longer used by your family, while helping our students experience the reward of helping others. Shoes will be collected through Friday, February 1, 2019. Thank you in advance for your generosity and support.
Panther Corps Penny Wars is On!

7th Grade students are proud to announce their first fundraising effort, Panther Corps Penny Wars, which is taking place this month. During morning arrival each day in January, 7th graders are hosting Penny Wars in the main entrance to raise funds for their Panther Corps partner organizations: Hoothon at UVA, the Wildlife Center, the International Rescue Committee (IRC), and the Albemarle Housing Improvement Program (AHIP). Bring your spare change any morning in January to play Plinko and see which organization your funds will support!
