Peabody Talent Show 

Tonight is the annual Peabody Talent Show. The students have been practicing and we have some amazing musicians here at Peabody who would love to share their talents with you. The show starts at  6:30, K-3 will be on the ramp in the lower school, 4-8 will be in the gym. Middle school students will be selling baked goods at the event to help raise money for their Kings Dominion trip. We hope to see you there! 

Peabody Lego League

We want to wish the best of  luck to the Peabody FIRST Lego League Team consisting of Kes Rodgers, Ronak Ailawadi,  William McClellan, Tristan Olowin, and team coach Kathleen Olowin on their competition this Saturday in Richmond.  The team has worked very hard over the last several months.

This Week in Middle School 

Spotlight on social studies

This week our sixth graders completed their simulation of the Boston Massacre trial, as each student represented the role of a different historical figure involved in the trial. In studying immigration and Ellis Island, Mr. Merrick is encouraging our seventh graders to dig a bit into their own ancestry, starting with learning the last names of their grandparents! And as eighth grade moves into their government unit, students took the U.S. citizenship test and were surprised at its rigor.
