The students bring them to their class and if enough are collected .. they get a class party!

The neighborhood is in this too!  There are drop off locations in Cooper-Young at Stone Soup Café in their market, Burke’s Books and the Cooper Young Community Association office at 2298 Young.

So clip and save.  Your are making money for Peabody Elementary!

Peabody’s School-Based Decision-Making Council Wants Your Input

Voice-MegaphoneThe School-Based Decision-Making Council is a group of Peabody’s administrators, teachers, staff, parents and community members, who meet several times each school year to discuss issues of importance to our school and students. This year’s council members are: Melanie Nelson (principal), Christopher Jones (professional counselor), Sandra Hamer (PLC coach), Donna Wilkes (general office secretary), Audrey Farmer (teacher and MEA rep), Daniel Flatt (representative of school adopter), Mandy Grisham (parent), and Ginger Spickler (parent).

Mandy  and Ginger  want to represent the parent body well. If you have concerns that you would like the council to address, please submit them via the form below (which will generate an email directly to them). While they cannot guarantee that the SBDMC will be able to address every issue, they’ll do their best to route your concerns to the appropriate people who might be able to help. Anonymous comments cannot be accepted, but if your concern is of a sensitive nature, and you do not wish your name to be brought up in the SBDMC’s discussion, please indicate that in your message, and Mandy or Ginger will handle your concerns accordingly.
