2018-2019 Annual Fund

The 2017-18 Peabody Annual Report was mailed out this week and we hope that you enjoy it. The 2018-19 Annual Fund is now officially underway! Thank you in advance for your consideration of a donation to Peabody School for the 2018-19 year.
“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!
Talent Show

We're looking forward to the annual Peabody Talent Show. This year we've divided the Talent Show into separate K-5 and 6-8 grade performances (the 6-8th grade performance will happen in the spring). The K-5 performance will be on Friday, November 30th.

In order for your student to participate in the Talent Show, he or she needs to audition. Auditions will take place during music class time the week of November 12th so encourage your local talent to rehearse in preparation for auditions. Please email Matt Wyatt or Colleen Fennessy with any questions!
Original Works

Original Works is an art fundraiser where you can purchase items with your child's artwork printed on them. You should have received a packet in your child's backpack. In the packet, you will find your child's artwork, a products sheet, a price list and an order form.

If you would like to order something (there is no obligation to do so), use the order form, write a check to Peabody School , and send it all back to your child's teacher. Although the Original Artworks are due back to school by Monday, November 5th.

If you have any questions, please feel free to email Mrs. Rogan .
This Week in Athletics

The soccer team beat the Waldorf School 5-2 and our girls volleyball team lost two hard fought matches to Charlottesville Catholic and Buford Middle School. If your child is interested in playing a winter sport (basketball or swimming), please contact Waki Wynn. We hope that many students play on a team and have some fun!
