Staffing Updates

The Peabody Family is growing again! We are excited to share that two of our teachers are having babies! Rebecca Lobb, current first grade teacher, and Kaitlin Clark, current PreK teaching assistant, are both expecting later this year. Although this is happy news for both, we will have to replace Becca as she has decided to be a full time mom next year and will be leaving our teaching staff. Becca will still be around Peabody as a mom to Elie and we wish her nothing but happiness! Kaitlin will be returning to her position after her leave next fall. As with any staff opening, we conduct national searches to ensure we have the most qualified candidates to teach our wonderful kids! The new hire will be assigned to our Kindergarten for the next academic year.
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.

Maggie Tewles and Peabody Music Program Featured in Dunlora Magazine

Maggie Tewles has been singing as long as anyone can remember. From an early obsession with Annie to fully memorizing all the lyrics from the Hamilton musical (cabinet battles included), Maggie has always enjoyed singing and music.

It is wonderful that Maggie discovered her passion at such a young age. "Singing is so accessible...



This Week in Middle School...

To learn about how electricity works, the 7th graders have been completing various challenges around the school such as boobytrapping classrooms with buzzers and quantifying electrical consumption across the school. Pictured above is a completed three way circuit challenge where students were tasked with creating a circuit that had two switches controlling a single light.
