From the Principal: September 30, 2014

Dear Peabody Community,

I am excited about what a great start we have had to this school year! It was wonderful to see all the smiling faces return and we are all enjoying getting to know our new families.

Thank you to all of you who were able to join us at our Annual Curriculum Night. As I mentioned that evening, I received some very good news about our MCAS Scores that I am now able to share. Thanks to everyone’s hard work and determination, we are now a Level One School. This designation is given by the state and is the highest level awarded to schools that have fully met their goal of narrowing the achievement gap goals. Congratulations to everyone!

For those of you I didn’t get to talk to personally, I hope your family will be attending the K-5 Potluck this Wednesday (10/1) from 5:30 – 7PM. Please join us and bring a dish to share. Nancy will be playing music and it promises to be a great evening.

Yesterday, you should have received your monthly curriculum update for October. I hope this will continue to be a helpful tool in working with your child at home, leading to discussions and connections with homework help.

As always, you should feel free to contact me at any time. My email is: Our office number is: 617.349.6530. You are also welcome to call me on my cell phone at: 617.201.7844.

Happy Fall!

Jennifer Ford
