Principal's Message

At Peachtree, we are fortunate to be an IB, International Baccalaureate, school. One of the goals of an IB education is to develop students who are internationally minded. It is with that goal in mind that Peachtree Elementary School is holding our first ever IB World Day on Tuesday October 31st. We are asking our staff and student body to dress in ways that celebrate the continents. We will then come together as a school to celebrate the world.

Each grade level has been assigned a continent and we encourage you to look for communication from your classroom teacher as to what country or countries your child's class is representing. This activity is over a week away, but we want to make sure you aware that it is coming.

Throughout the year we will continue to provide information to you about what is means to be an IB school. Continue to read the Peachtree Post for updates about IB, other programs, initiatives and events.


Have a wonderful weekend and as always, thank you for all you do.

Con ese objetivo en mente, la Escuela Primaria Peachtree celebrará nuestro primer Día Internacional Mundial del IB el martes 31 de octubre. Le estamos pidiendo a nuestro personal y estudiantes que se vistan de una manera que celebre los continentes. Luego nos reuniremos como escuela para celebrar el mundo.

A cada grado se le ha asignado un continente y los animamos a que busque la comunicación de su maestro en cuanto a qué país o países representa su clase.

Todavía falta una semana para esta actividad, pero queremos asegurarnos de que sepan de esta actividad.

A lo largo del año, continuaremos brindándole información sobre lo que significa ser una escuela de IB. Continúe leyendo la publicación de Peachtree post para obtener actualizaciones sobre el IB, otros programas, iniciativas y eventos.

The IB Word of the Month INQUIRER

Happy October! Our IB word of the month is INQUIRER. Encourage your children to ask questions and and want to dig deep into learning. Remind them that asking questions doesn't mean you're not smart. It means you want you're engaged and want to learn more. Curiosity is a great thing!



¡Feliz octubre! Nuestra palabra IB del mes es INVESTIGADOR. Anime a sus niños


a hacer preguntas y desear profundizar en el aprendizaje. Recuérdeles que hacer preguntas no significa que no seas inteligente. Significa que estás comprometido y quieres aprender más. ¡La curiosidad es una gran cosa!

What it means to BE IB

Peachtree Elementary is an International Baccalaureate Primary Years Program (PYP) school. The PYP is designed for students aged 3 to 12. The PYP curriculum involves students questioning, exploring, researching, and critical thinking to take ownership of their learning. This is known as an inquiry based approach to learning. Students’ inquiry is framed by six transdisciplinary themes for each grade level:

· Sharing the planet

· Who we are

· Where we are in place and time

· How we express ourselves

· How the world works, and

· How we organize ourselves

The transdisciplinary units frame the Gwinnett County AKS on a conceptual basis. You can find additional information about the PYP on the International Baccalaureate website – ibo.org.

Fostering Peachtree Families' love of literacy

The Peachtree Parent Center has long been committed to supporting the love of reading. Last year we introduced a new initiative that welcomes our youngest Peachtree Family members in to the world of literacy. Rock-A-Bye Reader is a first book for babies and parents. This book will be sent home with siblings when we learn of the birth of new babies. The Peachtree student (sibling) will receive a ribbon on the Peachtree News honoring them as a Literacy Ambassador. We encourage our families to send us a picture of the family sharing the Rock-A-Bye Reader book with the new baby. The picture will be posted on our bulletin board celebrating reading at home!




El Centro de Padres por muchos años se ha comprometido a apoyar el amor por la lectura. El año pasado presentamos una nueva iniciativa que da la bienvenida al mundo de la alfabetización a nuestros miembros de la familia Peachtree más jóvenes. Llamado Rock-A-Bye lectores, son un primer libro para bebés y padres. Estos libros serán enviados a casa con los hermanos cuando aprendamos del nacimiento de nuevos bebés. El estudiante de Peachtree (hermano) recibirá una cinta en la Peachtree News que los honra como Embajadores de la Alfabetización. ¡Animamos a nuestras familias a que nos envíen una foto de la familia compartiendo a los lectores de Rockabye con el nuevo bebé que se publicará en nuestro tablón de anuncios para celebrar la lectura en casa!
