Student Council Roadblocks for Special Olympics
Thursday, December 3, from 7:15 a..m. until 7:55 a.m.
The student council will conduct its roadblocks again this year as we have had in the past. This marks the 10th year of this activity and we appreciate you guys for helping us make it happen. We will have student council members masked and waiting at the three schools with buckets, hoping we will be able to raise some donations for Special Olympics. They will be in the same areas as last year (with the high school and middle school having two drop off areas). Additionally, this year we will not have as many members participating - there will be small groups and we will be diligent in maintaining as much distance as we can and of course, the students will be masked the whole time.

With less than four weeks until the December 4 mentor recruitment deadline, tnAchieves (at Peabody) is still in need of several volunteer mentors to ensure students have access to a local support system. Students will face new challenges in the coming year, and mentors will prove more important than ever before in helping students to achieve their goals!

Football Playoff Tickets
Peabody football fans...
Per TSSAA, there will not be any physical tickets sold for playoff games. All tickets to playoff games must be purchased through GoFan. The link will be made available on Monday of each week that we have a game. This link will be shared through our parent group text, our Peabody Facebook page, and posted on our school website.
Peabody's limit for tickets is MUCH higher than the amount we have sold each week. I think many people are thinking there's no use in trying to buy a ticket because of the limit. Due to the large capacity of our stadium, anyone who wants to attend a game should make an attempt to attend. I highly doubt we will reach our capacity for any of the games. However, don't chance it by waiting.
Look for the link as soon as it's available on Mondays.
Peabody Basketball Tickets for the Regular Season
Here is the information for how to purchase basketball tickets...
The first way (the best and cheapest way)...Buy an all-sports pass. These have been available since July. You get a ticket which will gain you entry into any sporting event at Peabody High School for 2019-2020. There are 12 home basketball games. Admission is $6. If you plan to attend every home game, a season ticket will save you $12 plus you have a ticket to go to any other games...
The second way (and last way)...Single game tickets may only be purchased through GoFan. This link will be shared the morning of each home basketball game. No physical tickets will be sold. Go Fan charges a $1 convenience fee, which means single-game admission will cost $7. Purchasing single-game tickets and attending every game will cost a total of $84.
So, therefore, BUY SEASON TICKETS, and save money!
The maximum capacity for games is set at 300 tickets. If you choose to buy single-game tickets, make sure to purchase the tickets as soon as you see the link. The link will be sent from the coaches to the parents of players via text and it will also be posted on our school website for each home basketball game.

2021 Tennessee Governor’s Schools
The 2021 Tennessee Governor’s Schools provide eleven challenging and high-intensity summer programs for rising 11th and 12th grade students nominated by high school faculty. Each of the Governor’s Schools are held on college and university campuses across the state and offer a unique learning environment for students interested in the arts, humanities, agriculture, science, STEM programs, advanced mathematics, physics, leadership, international studies, Tennessee history, or potential teaching careers. Students who are interested in participating in a Governor’s School should rank in the top of their high school class in academic performance/capability or be highly talented in the arts. Some Governor’s Schools award college credit for courses completed during the program. All students who complete a summer Governor’s School program will graduate with state distinction.
Interested students will be required to submit an application, all necessary/required supplemental application requirements, and receive a minimum of two teacher recommendations that will identify the applicant as talented, highly motivated, and mature. Students may request an application from Ms. Sunni in the School Counseling office. **PLEASE NOTE: Ms. Sunni does require that you TYPE your application. She will be sharing with you copies of the application that you will be required to submit via Google Classroom.
Each of the Governor’s Schools have different application deadlines. It is important that students complete the application and all other application requirements by the deadline set by Peabody, not by each of the TN Governor's Schools.
More information can be found at the link below. Remember, do not print these applications, please obtain an application from her.
