A MESSAGE FROM JANICE VAN NESS

I am looking for parents who can help with fundraising for the football field, which we hope to finish by December 12. The total field cost is about $105,000, however, thanks to SEC and the Mr. and Mrs. Billy Campbell, our cost to finish the field will be roughly $37,500.


Although we had planned to build a field next year, we could not pass up the gracious offer to grade and prep the field by their company, SEC. They brought in over 305 loads of dirt to make sure that our “Field of Dreams” becomes a reality for the Peachtree family much sooner than we had anticipated. Not only will this be another great opportunity for our students, it will be a wonderful recruiting tool in the coming months as we begin enrolling new students for 2013-2014.


Please help us by referring any companies who may want a great tax write off by donating to our school to help build the field. Sponsorships are available to you with signage on the sports field and in the new gymnasium which will acknowledge their gracious donations.

LET'S KEEP PEACHTREE LOOKING GOOD...

As the temperature begins to drop, our students want to wear jackets and sweatshirts to school. Please help PA look it's best by ensuring that the jackets, sweatshirts, and sweaters that are worn throughout the day have Peachtree Academy on it, or the color is solid black, blue, maroon, or white.

There have been no changes made to the dress code since August, but here are some reminders...

Acceptable
  • Long sleeved shirts worn under short sleeved uniform shirts (for warmth) should only be white or black.
  • Tights should be white, burgundy or black.
  • Knee socks should be white, burgundy or black.
  • Cropped leggings should be white, burgundy or black and girls must also wear socks that cover the copped hem -- no cropped leggings without socks.
  • Jackets and sweatshirts must be black, maroon, or white.

Unacceptable
  • Jackets and sweatshirts with advertisements other than Peachtree Academy

Elementary Christmas Concert

You are invited to attend our 2012 Elementary Christmas Concert which will be held on Dec. 11 at our beautiful new gymnasium in Covington. It is going to be a wonderful time of celebration for our Peachtree family. We will join together as our children sing and play Christmas carols, the elementary band will perform seasonal songs, and the Performing Arts club will present How the Grinch Stole Christmas.

Special Invitation to Peachtree Academy Families... Rediscover the true meaning of Christmas for FREE

You are cordially invited by Pastor Andrew Covington and his staff to join Connexion Church on December 22nd for a Christmas Celebration of special music, Christmas Caroling by candlelight, the Christmas Story shared with the children, yummy S'mores and hot chocolate too! The event will be held right here at the Peachtree campus.


Connexion is the church that meets for worship in our school facility once a month. This partnership has become a wonderful thing for our school and for the church. This upcoming holiday community event on December 22 is open to the public, but you have a special invitation as a Peachtree family.


It all begins with S'mores and Santa at 4:00. (Pictures with Santa are FREE.) Then at 5:30 there will be Caroling by candlelight and the presentation of the Christmas Story. Finally, at 6:15 we will have hot chocolate and go caroling in the community for those who are able. Bring your family and join in the fun for this FREE event.
