Scenes from around Peabody...
Middle School 

Ski Club 

The Peabody School will be offering the opportunity for our middle school students to participate in the Ski and Snowboard Club again this year.

Please find our  introduction letter and a  rental primer letter for the Peabody Ski and Snowboard Club for the 2016-17 Season.  A paper copy was also sent home with each middle school student this week.

You will be receiving an email with the application and a signup link (signup genius) at the end of next week or the beginning of the following week, depending on your child's grade.  Due to the limited number of spots in the club, each grade will only have  48 hours to register through signup genius to secure your child's spot.  The application, safety waiver, and payment will be due no later than Friday, 10/21/16.

SARA Classes 

SARA classes have started!  6th, 7th and 8th grade students all had their first class on Monday.  SARA classes will be held the first Monday of every month.  This is different from last year where they were held every week for the last few months of school. Click here to see the topics covered in each grade.
