4th Grade at Lowell Mills

This post is the first of (hopefully) many that will highlight some of the great activities that Friends of Peabody helps to fund. It’s also the first guest post we have! This was written by Martha Smith, Violet’s grandmother, who helped to chaperone last week’s 4th grade field trip to the Lowell Mills. Along with these pictures that she has shared with us below, she has a much more in-depth post about the trip at her own website, MKS Con Brio. Thanks, Martha!

Welcome to the new school year!

Everyone at Friends of Peabody is excited about the start of the 2018-19 school year. We will be selling t-shirts and the new Raspberry cards at this week’s curriculum night. At our first monthly meeting we have already started to plan for our annual events like the Ragnar race, the social night, and our annual solicitation.

We will continue to have our meetings at 7:30 am in the school library on the second Friday of each month. Our next meeting will be on October 12; please come join us if you’re interested in getting involved with Friends of Peabody in any way. We are always looking for new ideas and new parents who’d like to get involved.
