Our PTA will meet on Monday, November 29th, at 6:00PM via zoom. If you are interested in attending that meeting, please scroll down to the link and pre-register.


Thursday Dec. 2nd, and Friday, Dec. 3rd, Peachtree Staff and Students will celebrate with our annual Holiday Lunches.


Sadly, due to the pandemic, we are unable to invite families this year. Please note that parents will not be able to eat lunch at school these two days. However, the Peachtree staff and students are looking forward to a special lunch. Your child's teacher will let you know which of the two days they will celebrating in the cafeteria. We are asking staff and students to dress-up on their assigned Holiday Lunch day.


Finally, next week, GCPS schools will be closed for Thanksgiving vacation. Thanksgiving is a time for family and festive food, but it is also a time for reflection and a time to focus on gratitude. As I have said in the past, I have the best job in the world. Everyday, I have the good fortune of working with Peachtree Elementary School's amazing staff and your incredible children. Because of this, I am profoundly grateful.


On behalf of the Peachtree Staff, I wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving!


Your Proud Principal,

Gretchen Runaldue

IB Learners of the Month - November
