FFA Greenhouse
The Peabody FFA Greenhouse will open Saturday April 12, 2014 at 9 am.  The Ag classes have been working diligently on getting the plants germinated, transplanted, fertilized, and watered for the sale. Please stop by this weekend for your bedding plants, tomato, and pepper plants.  A copy of the price and variety list is available in the office at Peabody.  Please support our students for the hard work and time they have spent caring for these plants.  As in the past we cannot hold plants for later pickup and cannot guarantee all varieties for the duration of the sale so please come early in the sales season to purchase the most popular items.

Message from the Principal
Quote of the week:


Peabody High School was founded in 1877 with money donated by George Peabody.

Mr. Peabody was an international merchant and financier. At the conclusion of the Civil War, he donated $3.4 million to establish the 'Peabody Education Fund' in order to rebuild schools in the south. The $3.4 million would be the equivalent of $75 million today.
From the George Peabody Museum website:
The Southern states suffered greatly both during and after the American Civil War. Moved by their situation, George Peabody wanted to help. He believed that education would help the Southern people rebuild and so donated funds to "promote and encourage the intellectual, moral and industrial education of the destitute children of the Southern States." The Fund also attempted to establish a permanent education system run by qualified teachers.

In recognition of this act of philanthropy, Congress unanimously approved a resolution of gratitude and presented Peabody with a gold medal. Also, President Andrew Johnson personally visited Peabody and thanked him for his efforts.
He was a remarkable man who gave millions to those in need yet never actually bought any property for himself. Click on his picture to learn more.
 
Peabody High School is proud to carry the name of such a fine person and we will throughout the school year post more information about his life. In the meantime please visit the website listed above to  learn more about our namesake.
More from the website:
"Although George Peabody was first and foremost an American
businessman, his philosophic ideals transcended the war.  As such, he
was more concerned with helping people than with politics.  This was
evident in the effort he put forth in the Peabody Education Fund."
