Parent-Teacher Conference Babysitting

8th graders will be offering babysitting services during Parent-Teacher Conferences on Thursday, November 9th and Friday, November 10th. 

Babysitting will be available each day between 8am-4pm. Babysitting is to be used during a parent's conference time only. Parents should drop their children in the Peabody gym and sign them in. There will be board games, coloring, and gym activities. 

Donations will be accepted to support the 8th grade legacy project. Each year the 8th grade class raises funds for a legacy gift: in the past this has included the outdoor classroom, the Peabody bus, a ping pong table, and furniture for the atrium. 

Thanks for supporting our 8th graders!
