December is Cafeteria Etiquette month at Peabody! In an effort to bring about a positive environment in the school cafeteria during lunch time, the Positive Behavior Incentive System team has suggested a few new changes that will foster a happy lunchroom!
Our hope is to see a decrease in behavior problems at lunch and that all children will experience a nice social break from their intense learning day.
One way we will do that is by inviting YOU to join your child’s class for ONE day during the first two weeks of December. Principal Jones believes that if every class has ONE parent eating with them and reminding them of cafeteria etiquette, all classes will have better experiences.
Please sign up to eat with your child’s class one day this month.
Location: Peabody Cafeteria
It’s easy. Just sign up here!

Congratulations to awesome Peabody Elementary dad Meka Egwuekwe! He’s been selected as one of the Memphis Business Journal’s “Top 40 Under 40” – a list of the city’s top young civic and business leaders.
Meka is the senior architect and co-director of development for Lokion Interactive, a digital service and strategy agency.
Of course, you can just call him “Mr. E” – that’s what our Peabody 2nd graders call him when he volunteers as their French teacher every Friday.
Yea, Peabody parents rock.
See our Peabody parents who made MBJ’s Top 40 under 40 in 2011!
Peabody’s Scholastic Book Fair is taking place all this week in the library! A flyer showing available titles was sent home with your child last week.
Your child can go shopping for books all this week (November 13-16) in the school library.
You can also buy online here and proceeds from the sale will go to Peabody!

What are your hobbies? If I have spare time, I like to cook and make Pinterest crafts!
What is your favorite elementary school memory? My favorite memory of elementary school is going to the fall festival and winning a cake on the cake walk!
What is your hope for your Peabody students? I hope they are able to move to the fourth grade as independent readers and multiplication masterminds. I also hope that they learn the skills needed to accomplish their dreams in life.
What is your favorite Memphis outing? My favorite thing to do in Memphis is listen to good music and eat amazing food.

What is one thing a parent can do to partner with you in educating their child? Constant communication with me and reviewing skills at home with their child will help tremendously.
