Lego League Team Competes in Richmond

The Peabody Lego League team, The Astrobots, went to their competition in Richmond on Sunday. It was a long and busy day, with a project presentation, robot design judging, teamwork assessment and three rounds at the robot game board. They scored 5 of their 6 pre-programmed missions on the robot field over the course of the day, earning a score of 68 points in their best round and high marks for their teamwork in their Core Values judging session. Congratulations Ryan Kish, Asher Marini, River Lewis, Zeke Lewis, Kes Rodgers and Nicholas Wilbur on a great season!
“Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory”

We are happy to be staging a spring musical this year, "Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory!" Roles will be available for students 2nd - 8th Grade, and auditions for speaking parts will be held during December. For those who do not want to audition but would still like a part, involvement in chorus is by signup, and an email will be going out before the winter break containing details of how to do this. There will also be a backstage crew, responsible for set, lighting and props. Please contact Mrs. Saunders if your child would be interested in helping out backstage.

Rehearsals will be after school on selected Tuesdays and Thursdays for main parts, and several Tuesdays for chorus. To avoid children being at rehearsals that do not directly involve them, they will only be called on specific dates, rehearsal schedules will be sent out weekly in advance.

We hope that many students participate!
