One of the best ways we can all help our children … is by helping their teachers!
Consider being a room parent! Your role — be the communication link between your teacher the other parents in your child’s classroom.
Is there a need in your child’s classroom – send an email to help organize class parents.
Is it your teacher’s birthday? Email the parents to get ideas or collect funds.
Holiday party? Help your teacher sign up parents!

The Accelerated Reader team is thrilled to announce that this year’s AR Prize Store will be sponsored by The Village Toymaker! This generous local business will be donating the toys and prizes our Peabody students will choose from when they shop with their AR points this year.
The Village Toymaker’s huge annual toy sale starts today (8/21/14) and runs through Sunday (8/24/14), with 20-50% off everything in their stores, so please stop by one of their locations (at the Children’s Museum, in East Memphis or in Germantown) to do a little shopping for upcoming birthdays, or maybe even some early Christmas shopping! When you do, PLEASE make sure to mention that you’re a Peabody family and thank them for their generosity to our children!
The first AR Prize Store will be held right around Fall Break, so encourage your child to do LOTS of reading and AR quiz taking — not only so they can get some great prizes, but also to s-t-r-e-t-c-h those mental muscles!
