Cookie Dough Reward Party Volunteers

2017 Ice Cream PartyOur little Eagles (and their Eagle adults) worked very hard to make the 2017 Cookie Dough Sale a success! We earned more than $6,500 in profits that will go toward technology improvements for the school.

Now we need your help to reward sellers who have a golden ticket to our Ice Cream and/or Dance Party!

The kids are so excited about this special event, and we need hands to scoop ice cream and feet to dance with them.

Sign up here!

Cookie Dough Delivery Day Dec. 19th

Cookie dough delivery


Cookie dough delivery day has been moved to Tuesday, December 19th in the Peabody Cafeteria.  Orders must be picked up between 3-6pm. No early pickups.

This is the ONLY day to pick up your orders.

We will also be handing out gift cards to top sellers who earned prizes.  An adult must be present to pickup cookie dough and sign for gift cards.

Remember to make room in your freezer/fridge before pickup, as the dough must stay cold.


Peabody parents do such an amazing job selling cookie dough each year, so that means we have a lot of boxes to set up for delivery.

We’ll need some help to set up the cookie dough orders and checking orders and prizes out to parents. Several people from the cookie dough company will be working to get the dough of the delivery truck, but since we only have a few hours after lunch to set up in the cafeteria — we need more hands to make the work go faster!

Sign up here to volunteer to make delivery to parents go smoothly

Cookie Dough Donations

If you want to donate to the Cookie Dough Fundraiser, but did not sell cookies — you can still help! The Peabody PTA will always accept donations.
If you want your child to be included in the Reward Day held in January for the cookie dough sale, the following donations are equivalent to what sales will bring to the school:
$25    Dress Down Day
$50    Dress Down Day + Ice Cream Party
$85+  Dress Down Day + Ice Cream Party + Dance Party
Obviously, the ToysRUs gift certificates would not be given for financial donations, as that sort of defeats the purpose of your financial donation 🙂
If you donate money ONLY, please write a check or put cash in a regular envelope. Make all checks payable to Peabody ES PTA. Include your child’s name and classroom and write Cookie Dough donation on the envelope.  This amount will not be counted toward classroom participation. But it sure will go toward making Peabody an even better school!

Sell Cookie Dough, Raise Money for Peabody!

Peabody + Revolutions = Fall Bike to School Day

What a way to start the school day for these Peabody kids, parents and faculty! Intrepid Peabody mom and Director of Revolutions Bicycle CoOp, Sylvia Crum, mapped out a slow ride bike train that snaked two miles through the Cooper-Young neighborhood, picking up Eagles along the way to school, including Principal Melanie Nelson and Peabody PTA president, Jenni Pappas! Many thanks to Peabody dad and photographer, Brandon Dill, for capturing the big smiles along the way. Another fantastic Bike to School Day.
