The Village Toymaker to sponsor AR Store!

Screenshot 2014-08-21 13.16.07The Accelerated Reader team is thrilled to announce that this year’s AR Prize Store will be sponsored by The Village Toymaker! This generous local business will be donating the toys and prizes our Peabody students will choose from when they shop with their AR points this year.

The Village Toymaker’s huge annual toy sale starts today (8/21/14) and runs through Sunday (8/24/14), with 20-50% off everything in their stores, so please stop by one of their locations (at the Children’s Museum, in East Memphis or in Germantown) to do a little shopping for upcoming birthdays, or maybe even some early Christmas shopping! When you do, PLEASE make sure to mention that you’re a Peabody family and thank them for their generosity to our children!

The first AR Prize Store will be held right around Fall Break, so encourage your child to do LOTS of reading and AR quiz taking — not only so they can get some great prizes, but also to s-t-r-e-t-c-h those mental muscles! Need more info about how to help your child be successful with AR? Check out our AR web page!

Kindergarten Orientation + Ice Cream = Fun!


New kindergartners and their families are welcome as Peabody celebrates the arrival of our newest Eagles. Thanks to our adopters at Neighborhood Church, the students (and any siblings) are invited to hangout and enjoy frozen treats with plenty of adult supervision while their parents get to know our fabulous Kindergarten teachers and their classrooms. Of course, after orientation, the grownups are invited to have a treat, too!
