Room Parents Wanted

Screenshot 2014-09-02 20.46.37One of the best ways we can all help our children … is by helping their teachers!

Consider being a room parent! Your role — be the communication link between your teacher the other parents in your child’s classroom.

Is there a need in your child’s classroom – send an email to help organize class parents.

Is it your teacher’s birthday? Email the parents to get ideas or collect funds.

Holiday party? Help your teacher sign up parents!

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!

What: Kindergarten Orientation and Ice Cream Social

When: Tuesday, August 12 from 6PM to 7:30PM

Where: Peabody Elementary Cafetorium

It’s Peabody Election Day, Too!

We all know August 7th is Election Day in Shelby County … but did you know it’s also the kick-off for the Peabody PTA Elections?!

Screenshot 2014-08-07 11.56.05The nomination process for candidates closed Wednesday at midnight, so the ballot is now set.  Didn’t read up on your candidates?  No problem, because they are all running unopposed:)

Many thanks to all those who have volunteered to serve!

If board service is not for you, there are a host of other ways to be involved in the Peabody PTA. We’ve included some of those on the PTA Board Ballot below! So consider checking a box or two for volunteer opportunities you might find interesting — and someone from the PTA will follow up.

Also, please take time to vote. Even though everyone is unopposed, the votes certify the election process. Plus, it also makes our officers feel really good when more than just a handful of people affirm their volunteerism with a vote!

This poll closes on Thursday, August 14th.
