Pursuing Excellence with Honor


Peachtree Faculty and Staff want to take this opportunity to wish you the very happiest holiday, as we celebrate the birth of our Lord Jesus. This season will be filled with the excitement of the holiday; lots of gifts, too much food, beautiful decorations, family and friends. Let us all be mindful of how blessed we are to have the freedom to worship and celebrate Christmas in the ways that we do. Let's hug our children a little tighter, listen to our friends who may be discouraged, and above all, spread the joy of the Lord and celebrate the true meaning of Christmas. May God bless you. Merry Christmas to all!!

As the temperature begins to drop, our students want to wear jackets and sweatshirts to school.

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


  • 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.

Our school is participating in the SchoolMall program this year. This online program helps our school earn cash without having students selling door-to-door, collecting money or delivering products. Over 400 merchants, including Sears, Target and WalMart, have joined together to offer up to 50% of sales to our school for shopping through

Your participation is the key to a successful program for our school. Your child will receive a packet with more information and post cards to return for school credit. We will receive a guaranteed $2.25 per 11 postcards returned and ready to mail to family and friends. These postcards will be mailed with a brochure offering over 250 family magazines and other specialty items, along with instructions on how to shop at When two items are ordered from the brochure, your student will earn the "Glow-In-The-Dark" Super Mario and Friends shirt. Every student who returns the booklet marked "Yes" will be entered in a drawing, held in May, for a Family Vacation to Orlando, Florida. Also, every child returning their completed postcard booklet will receive a special gift. We need all postcards completed and turned in by December 18, 2012.

To shop, simply go to and select our school. We hope you enjoy the SchoolMall website and we look forward to kicking-off our SchoolMall campaign.
