Stock Up Peabody Elementary’s New Uniform Closet

School_uniform

Your child may have started the new school year with fresh shirts and crisp khakis, but, unfortunately, that’s not the case for all Peabody Elementary school students.  

We want everyone at our school to feel that Peabody Pride. 

That’s why the Peabody PTA has started a Uniform Closet.  We are collecting gently used uniforms, belts, new underwear, and new socks. 

Bring your new and gently used items to Peabody Elementary’s main office.  Your hand-me-downs could make a child a smile.
