Peabody Fall 2020 Re-Entry Town Hall Meetings

A letter from Peabody Principal, Melanie Nelson:

Peabody would like to host a Town Hall Meeting to answer any questions that parents may have to help you make the best instructional learning decision for your family by July 18th.

These virtual Town Hall’s will take place in the Zoom app. If you have Zoom on your phone or computer, just open the app and enter the information below. If you do not have Zoom, please follow these download instructions

Meeting 1 Grades KK-2 will be Tuesday, July 14th @ 5:30P.M.

MEETING ID:  942 1910 4953


Meeting 2 Grades 3-5 will be Wednesday, July 15th @ 5:30 P.M.

MEETING ID:  961 9349 7628


 If you are unable to attend your child’s grade meeting, please feel free to attend any day that accommodates you. If you know of any new Peabody families, please share this flyer with them. When joining the meeting, we are asking everyone to place their microphones on mute and place any questions in the Chat Box.  We will answer questions throughout the meeting.

The District is asking parents to choose in advance whether or not they will be attending school in-person or virtually so that schools can appropriately balance classes so that some teachers will teach students in the classroom while others will teach students who are at home through the Microsoft Teams platform.”

Thank you for your continued support.

Mrs. Nelson

Donations for Cookie Dough Fundraiser

If you want to donate to the Cookie Dough Fundraiser, but did not sell cookies — you can still help! The Peabody PTA will always accept donations.
If you want your child to be included in the Reward Day held in January for the cookie dough sale, the following donations are equivalent to what sales will bring to the school:
$25    Dress Down Day
$50    Dress Down Day + Ice Cream Party
$85+  Dress Down Day + Ice Cream Party + Dance Party
Obviously, the Target gift certificates would not be given for financial donations, as that defeats the purpose of your financial donation 🙂
If you donate money ONLY, please write a check or put cash in a regular envelope. Make all checks payable to Peabody ES PTA. Include your child’s name and classroom and write Cookie Dough DONATION on the envelope.  This amount will not be counted toward classroom participation. But it sure will go toward making Peabody an even better school!
