School portrait time is just around the corner! 

Susan Parmar Photography will be here during the week of October 5th to take individual student pictures. Because of safety protocols, she will not be doing sibling pictures in school this year, but will offer an optional weekend event for siblings photos. At-home learners will be invited on this day as well. More details to follow. Please contact susan@susanparmar.com with any questions.
Solar Array Installation

You may have noticed the workers on the roof this week. We are completing Phase Two of our solar panel installation. Phase One was completed in 2018 on the Batten Building. These projects are funded through Power Purchase Agreements and Peabody does not have any costs associated with the project. We needed to remove the trees in the front of the building to gain exposure and to mitigate some water issues caused by the tree roots. We will be adding some native plantings and building a rain garden up front as soon as we can! Peabody is committed to green initiatives!
