Tend the Peabody Garden this Summer!

It’s that time of year again … to think about the care of our Peabody Community Garden this summer. Our little gardeners have done a good job taking care of it during the school year, but now we need a team effort to keep it going all summer long!

If you like eating sun-warmed tomatoes just off the vine and appreciate the flavors of fresh basil, peppers, cucumbers, and squash, then this job is for you! Sign up for one week (Saturday to Friday) — it’s a special project for you and your family. And, you don’t have to be a Peabody family to care for the garden — we welcome the community to pitch in (and munch on the fresh produce!)

Not a gardener, but want to learn? Don’t worry- we’ll have a brief orientation session for all volunteers to learn everything you need to know.

Location: Peabody school garden

Peabody International Festival 2018

It was another incredible International Festival at Peabody Elementary with food, performance and activities from all over the world! Many thanks to Shelby County Schools for doing this piece on all the fun!



The Great Peabody Potty Makeover!

Let’s makeover those sad Peabody bathroom stalls!

Join in to paint the bathroom stalls with a clean coat of black paint on Saturday, May 12th from 9-2pm. This will give the Peabody Picasso Club the perfect clean canvas to paint fun and inspiring messages under the direction of art teacher extraordaire – Ms. Momany!

Since we are using black paint and want to avoid dripping on bathroom tile — this project is for adults only. But give us your Saturday and the Peabody PTA will get you a yummy lunch!

This is a project the kids will really notice and make the bathrooms a more pleasant place. If you have clean paint brushes or rollers, please bring them.
