Alumni Spotlight: Kendall Gardiner Moore
 Peabody is pleased to feature Kendall Gardiner Moore as our 2019 Fall Alumni Spotlight!  Kendall graduated in the Peabody Class of 2006, after attending from 3rd through 8th grades. She finished Monticello High School in 2010 and Elon University in 2014, graduating Summa Cum Laude as part of the Isabella Cannon Leadership fellows program. While at Elon, she majored in Strategic Communications and minored in Leadership and Italian studies.
Kendall reports that she originally came to Peabody partially for health reasons, as “I had recently been diagnosed with Childhood Epilepsy Disorder, and wasn’t getting the type of individualized instruction that was necessary for my academic success at the public school I was attending.” She added, “I needed a lot of flexibility, kindness, and support to reach my potential, and if I hadn’t had that support, I don’t believe I would be where I am.”  Read more about Kendall's experience at Peabody...

Boston Massacre Trial

This week, the sixth grade social studies class re-enacted the famous Boston Massacre trial. Replete with attorneys, defendants, witnesses and agitators, the room was filled with plenty of objections, cross-examinations and conflicting testimony. Such was the world of 1770, when the colonists were fed up with the Redcoats. For those counting, John Adams' defense team narrowly won the case, setting the Lobsterbacks free.
2019-2020 Annual Fund 

The 2019-20 Annual Fund is now officially underway! Thank you in advance for your consideration of a gift to Peabody School for the 2019-20 year. Everyone should have received our Annual Report in the mail last week. Thank you for being such strong supporters of Peabody School!
Snow Club 

Winter is fast approaching and Peabody School would like to offer discounted season lift passes to Wintergreen to all interested lower school families. Please contact Coach Fargo for more information.
For middle school students and families, we will offer the Peabody Snow Club again this year. Please be on the lookout for an email from Coach Fargo with Snow Club details today!
K-5 Talent Show

Happy fall! The K-5 talent show is approaching and we wanted to make you aware of all of the details surrounding it. The talent show itself will take place on Friday, November 22nd at 6:30pm at the IX Art Park stage. Students who are performing in the talent show must arrive at 6:00pm. Although it is K-5, if students have an act they would like to perform with a sibling not in that age range, that is fine as long as they audition together. 
To participate in the talent show, students must audition for Ms. Colleen and Mr. Wyatt during lunch or recess in the week before the talent show. We do this to ensure that every student has something prepared, and no one will be walking onstage without a firm act in mind. We have been announcing this to the students so they should be aware of the auditions. 
Please do not hesitate to let us know if you have any questions or concerns!
