Go to Hoothon!

Hoothon at UVA raises money year round for the UVA Children’s Hospital, where our money goes directly into research, programs, and creating miracles for children in the hospital. In April, our efforts culminate in a “Marathon” where we stand, or “dance,” for 10 hours for those who cannot. The dance Marathon is on April 21, 2018. 8th Grader Angus Leone is organizing a group of Peabody 5th-8th graders to attend from 12pm-2pm. We will pick the kids up from Peabody and take them to the Dance Marathon. If extra transportation is needed we can arrange that. The charge to go will be 20 dollars as a donation to the Cause. To sign up please fill out this form ( UVA Dance Marathon Signup ) and submit a $20 check to the front office with "Hoothon" in the subject line.  
Mr. Chain's Raspberry Pi Camp

The goal of the Peabody Raspberry Pi Summer Camp is to get someone over the initial hurdles and become self sufficient for their electronics projects in the future. A Raspberry Pi is a credit card sized computer that is a powerful learning tool for coding and electronics. If your student is interested in learning about robotics, coding, and circuitry and wants to learn real world coding and applications, this is the perfect summer camp for them.

10% discount for all Peabody students!

Who: Rising 6th - 9th grade students

When: June 18th - 22nd or July 9th - 13th, 8:00am - 3:30pm
