Peabody Exceeds District/State Averages for TNReady Reading Scores


A message from Peabody Principal Melanie Nelson: 

Peabody is celebrating our recognition for exceeding the District average (20.8%) and State average (34%) for ELA(Reading) on the  2016-2017 TNReady Assessment.  Peabody Elementary grades 3-5 scored 38.6 % in ELA on the Spring TNReady Assessment.  The State of TN only tested students in grades 2-5.  However, the State scores only include scores from grades 3-5.

We know our teachers in grades 3-5 appreciate the strong reading foundational skills taught by our fabulous kindergarten-second grade teachers.

We are so proud of our wonderful ELA teachers in grades 3-5.  A job well done and you should be celebrated!

Mrs. Gina Guthrie                   5th Grade

Mrs. Katie Aristorenas           4th Grade

Mrs. Pletcher-Davis                3rd Grade

Peabody teachers will continue as a team to ensure success for our students.

As always parents, thank you for sending us your best everyday!



Peabody Raises $1,000 for LeBonheur

logoYour kids had a celebrity visit from WREG-TV’s Jim Jaggers for the Go Jim Go Campaign! Jaggers rides his bikes 333 miles across the Mid-South to raise money for LeBonheur Children’s Hospital. This year – the entire campaign raised more than $350 thousand!

Your contributions allowed Peabody Elementary to meet its $1,000 pledge to help the kids of LeBonheur. Our little school was the final stop on the Go Jim Go ride — check out WREG’s video from Peabody.

Also, Peabody dad and pro photographer, Brandon Dill was on hand and captured a ton of fun moments.  We put some of his great pictures on our Facebook page. Show your kids and make sure to tag yourselves in any photos!

Thanks again for your generosity and to the Peabody staff who made this campaign possible.  #PeabodyCares
