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

We want to support our teachers and staff so that we can make our school a great experience for everyone who walks through our school doors.

That’s why we’re asking you to join a team. And we’ve got a lot of them! It might be Room Parents, Watchdogs, Communication, Fundraising, Accelerated Readers, Gardening or even Team Fun! So sign up for one, sign for a few — you can do as much or as little on each team as you want.

And if you’ve already signed up for a team, take a look at this list again.  We’ve added a few.  We also have a few Peabody PTA Board Positions that could use someone wonderful like you!

Peabody Music Program Featured

It only takes attending one music program at Peabody Elementary to know that Jerry Sanders has built something exceptional.  As it turns out, Shelby County Schools thinks we’re pretty exceptional, too! The SCS school district was recently selected as one of the top music program districts in the country — and when SCS wanted to highlight it’s very best elementary music programs — Peabody was chosen!

Check out this wonderful video that highlights the best of SCS.  If you want to go straight to the section about music, it starts around 22-minutes into the video.
