#MyCentennial Student Voices: Peabody Elementary School Speaks Up!

Each year, Peabody Elementary School holds a fundraising auction bringing together Peabody families, staff, and the surrounding community for an evening of fun. Peabody students from the 3rd, 4th and 5th grade were asked to participate in a writing contest as a way to get involved. This years’ prompt was: What does Peabody Elementary mean to you? The writing genre was open-ended so students were able to express their opinion in any way. Peabody means a lot to these students and to the community. 

See what these students had to say!
