They have been embracing their roles as the oldest and most mature grade at The Peabody School. We are striving to live by the Peabody School Social Contract, “To Achieve Success.” We begin every school day by reciting our school Social Contract during the morning announcements:

Some of the new responsibilities we have as 5th graders are:

  • The school store will be opening soon. The students are responsible for opening the store at 8AM each morning. Some of their duties include counting money, taking inventory, and ordering new supplies as well as learning customer service skills as they interact with their customers.


  • They have begun leading the morning announcements, which is a very important role as we begin each day with our Social Contract, “To Achieve Success.”


  • During the first two weeks of school, we used our Peabody School Social contract to guide us in developing our classroom rules.


  • The students have been assigned Kindergarten Buddies where they have been reading and assisting them with various academic activities. The Kindergarten and 5th graders meet on Fridays.

*We use the social contract to help shape and develop our classroom rules and strive to model positive behavior while at recess, lunch, traveling through the hall, and beyond the classroom.
