2020-21 Annual Fund Kick-Off

The 2020-21 Annual Fund is now officially underway! All families will receive our Annual Report in the mail next week.

Your participation in the Peabody Annual Fund provides essential operating support to Peabody. The generosity of our community supports almost everything that keeps Peabody running, from salaries and classroom technology to arts and supplies. This year, we are also faced with increased expenses for items such as technology infrastructure upgrades, outdoor learning spaces, additional cleaning supplies and protective equipment, and additional aid to Peabody students and families who felt the financial impact of COVID-19. We hope that you will support Peabody in this area and that you will keep in mind that your Annual Fund gift, of any size, really matters to the school. 

Thank you in advance for your consideration of a gift to Peabody School for the 2020-21 year and for being such strong supporters of our wonderful school!
Virtual Talent Show!

The 2020 K-5 Peabody Talent Show will happen virtually, on Friday, November 13. Individual student performance videos will be brought together in a talent show movie that will then be shared with our school community. 

If you would like to participate in the virtual talent show, submit a video of your performance piece no later than Friday, November 6 at 5pm. Talent Show participation is optional, but if you would like to participate please note the basic requirements and submission process below.  

Submit a video of your music or dance performance piece by uploading your video to Google Drive. Please title your video "2020 Talent Show: your name + your grade." Click here to access the shared folder where you can upload that video to Drive to share with Ms.Colleen and Mr. Wyatt. The maximum length for videos is 1 minute for K-3 students and 2 minutes for students in grades 4-5.
