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!

Half School Day Information

Message from Peabody Principal Nelson:

Shelby County Schools has 8 half days of learning this school year.  Half Days are from 8:15 A.M.-12:15 P.M. Students will be dismissed at 12:15 P.M.

Please communicate the Half Day dismissal time of 12:15 P.M. with your child’s Daycare if they ride a daycare bus.  If they ride SCS school bus, the bus will pick them up from school at 12:15 P.M.  However, parents must be available to receive students at home.  If parents can’t make arrangements to be home by 12:30 P.M. to receive students from the SCS Bus, please sign up for SCS Half Day Care Program.

These are the (8) half days for the 2019-2020 school year:

  • September 20
  • October 11
  • November 8
  • December 20
  • January 17
  • February 14
  • March 13
  • May 22

If parents need Half Day Care, SCS is providing Half Day Care from 12:15 P.M.-3:15 P.M. Parents must sign up by Friday, September 6th via your PowerSchool Parent Portal. Click the tab that says, “Half-Day Program” to sign-up.

If parents sign-up for the Half Day Program, students must be picked up by   3:15 P.M. Parents have to sign up for the program each time there is a half day. SCS will notify you via email if your child was approved to stay for the Half Day Care Program.

If your child is a part of our school’s Y-Care Program with the YMCA, that program will not start until 3:15 P.M. This means that if you plan for your child to stay for the Y-Care which starts at 3:15 P.M., you must register them for the SCS Half Day Care program from 12:15-3:15 P.M. via the PowerSchool Parent Portal. At 3:15 P.M., we will transition your child to Y-Care when their services start.
