Peabody Elementary Receives GOCO Grant
Peabody Elementary has been awarded a $100,000 grant from Great Outdoors Colorado, also known as GOCO. Our school has also received funds from the City of Centennial and another source so total funds available for playground renovations equal approximately $150,000!!
We would like to extend our gratitude to Greater Outdoors Colorado and the City of Centennial, as well as LPS and Peabody staff who worked so hard to make this award possible. With this grant, the Peabody Community Playground is one step closer to becoming a reality for our neighborhood!

Professional Learning Community (PLC) Late Start Days
Again next school year all LPS schools will have 10 Late Start Wednesdays where staff come together to look at classroom data and the individual needs of students. On these Late Start Days the school day at Peabody begins at 10:31 a.m. for all grades except preschool which remains on a traditional day schedule.
These three additional hours from 7:30 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. allow staff to collaborate in whole staff teams, vertical teams and grade level teams to assess students needs in literacy, math, science and social studies. Our physical education, art education and music education teachers utilize this time to meet in like group PLC's with their elementary colleagues across the district on essential learnings and best assessment practices in their subject areas.
Children cannot be at school before 10:20 a.m. on a Late Start Day unless they are enrolled in our Panther Pride Club. Please contact Mary Lloyd, director at 303.347.4635 if you are in need of child care. Buses run on a Late Start schedule - simply two hours later than a typical school day. Our half day kindergarten program runs as follows on Late Start Days:
Kindergarten AM: 10:36 a.m. - 12:32 p.m.
Kindergarten PM: 1:17 p.m. - 3:13 p.m.
Our next Late Start Day is Wednesday, November 13rd, 2013.
