This Week in Middle School 

Here's whats happening in SARA classes this month. 

National Geographic Bee Coming!

Plans are being made for the annual Peabody School National Geographic Bee competition.  Students in grades 4-8 are invited to test their skills in geography and enjoy learning about their world’s landforms and cultures.  Grade level competitions will be held in December, and the school wide competition, which will determine Peabody’s winner, will be held January 18th at 1:30 in the gym. Our Peabody winner will take a qualifying test for the state bee to be held March 31.  Students may begin studying now by going to NatGeoBee.org. Please contact Julie Lacy if you have any questions.
