Peabody PTA Meeting on Monday!

PTA Meeting

The Peabody PTA will hold our first meeting of the year Monday, August 28. It will be held in the Peabody library from 5:30-6:30pm. You will learn more about what PTA is and what we do, meet the board members and committee leaders, and learn ways to get involved. The board members will review the agenda, and you are welcome to listen in and give feedback.

Whether you can attend the meeting or not, please consider becoming a PTA member. The yearly dues are only $5.00 for individual or $10 for a family. You are not required to do anything if you become a member but are welcome to get as involved as you’d like. The PTA membership and dues help the PTA do great things for our teachers, staff, and school! Hope to see you next Monday!


Email Sign Up for 2017.2018 School Year


The Peabody PTA is involved in so many great activities that benefit our Eagles. And communication about upcoming events and important reminders is just one of those services that Peabody PTA provides to our families.

That’s why we’re collecting emails for the 2017-2018 school year, so that you can be as engaged as you can be. But we can’t send you emails until you opt in.  Relatives and teachers are encouraged to sign up!

We’ve made it easy.  Just click here to opt in!

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.

Teacher Appreciation Week!

teacher appreciation week

Teacher Appreciation Week is May 1-5th.  The Peabody PTA is sponsoring a luncheon for teachers and staff — a lovely spread put on by our super School Adopter, Sweet Grass. It’s so big, that it happens over two days. The school is also holding a Teacher’s Breakfast at the school at the beginning of the week.

This means Peabody needs volunteers to cover classes while our amazing crew enjoys delicious food and a fun time together! You can find the form in your child’s Tuesday folder to cover your child’s class (or volunteer to cover any class) for the breakfast and/or luncheon. Or just download the Teacher Appreciation form here and turn it in to the school.
