Thank You for Supporting the Peabody 2020 Campaign!

Thank you to all the families who came to the event at Three Notch’d where we shared plans for new STEM, performing arts, and outdoor play space.

Grade 8 Trip to UVA Cardiology

The 8th grade had the wonderful opportunity to tour the UVA Hospital’s cardiology unit this week. Surgeons, nurse practitioners, perfusionists, therapists, and many more members of the cardiac team donated their time to create a extraordinary experience for our 8th graders. A tour of the Operating Room, heart dissections led by a team of four heart surgeons, and a cath lab surgical simulation were just a few of the amazing experiences UVA lined up for us. A huge thank you goes out to Dr. Gorav Ailawadi and April Howell for putting this together!
