Peabody 2020... Did you Know?

Did you know that Peabody School started offering classes in Songwriting and Sound Recording and Production for our Middle School students this year? Although these classes were great additions, we only scratched the surface of what we could do with our students due to physical plant limitations. The new performing arts classroom will include two soundproof practice rooms with recording and sound mixing capabilities for our students. Upon completion, we will offer a podcast class where students can integrate skills learned in Language Arts and Social Studies as well! If you haven't already, please consider making a gift to help create new opportunities for our children! A gift in any amount is significant and makes an impact for our kids!

Can you believe that the end of school is less than a month away! We look forward to a special day on Friday, June 7th as we both honor our graduates and celebrate the end of a another wonderful year.

Here are some details of the day:

The graduation and awards ceremony for 8th graders and Middle School award winners will take place in the Batten gym. Seating will start at 8:30AM and the ceremony will start at 9:00AM and last approximately an hour. The entire student body will be present to honor our 8th graders. Due to limited seating, this event is only attended by students, Grade 8 parents, their guests, and parents of award winners.

Starting at 10:30AM, we will also hold a promotion ceremony for the rest of our students, also in the Batten gym. This ceremony will be followed by classroom celebrations in your student's homeroom. There will be more information to come about that piece and parking for the event. All are welcome to this ceremony.

Parking details will be sent out at the end of the month!
