Lego League wins Regional Championship!

Peabody's Lego League team, Jedi Penguins: Rise of Skywaddler, won the Regional Championship for their Innovation project at the DC/Virginia regional tournament! As you may recall, the team created a website of local scavenger hunts they call "Quarantine Quests". Accessible on any type of device, there are both generic quests that can be done in any neighborhood or yard as well as some specific locations around Charlottesville. They have worked through a challenging season and all the difficulties of working remotely and they
have done it with an abundance of "Gracious Professionalism." Congratulations Kes, River, Sienna, Cooper, and Ishan! We are all proud of you!

New Outdoor Learning and Play Spaces

Construction on some new outdoor learning features has begun! A new "ship" structure is nearing completion in the woods along with a new slide that will be embedded in the hillside. Additionally, early plans are underway for cob house construction and the creation of a rain garden/cistern system. This is the last phase of our Peabody 2020 project and funded through our generous campaign donors and grants, visioned by Ms. Lastinger, Nicola McGoff, and our environmental science students. We look forward to sharing updates on all of these projects!

2021-22 Academic Calendar

We are happy to share the 2021-22 Academic Calendar. Although we can not predict the nature of the pandemic in the fall, this calendar reflects a more typical year. We will do our best to limit changes if possible.
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!
