The Peeples Elementary School Council is comprised of two parent members and two business partners, as well as two teachers and the school principal. This year we need to elect a new parent representative to join our council for the 2015-2016 and 2016-2017 school years. Our school council is made up of exemplary members, and we are anticipating the election of another parent who will be just as outstanding. The election for our new parent member will be held at the PTO Meeting/Spring Concert on Thursday, May 7 at 6:00pm. A nomination form can be found at this link – Peeples School Council Nomination. Additional copies are also available in the school office. If you wish to nominate someone else or yourself, please complete the nomination form and return it to the office by Friday, May 1. Thank you for your support of our school council!
Spring Fling 2015 is quickly approaching (the big date is May 1)! Please take a look at the sponsor signs along Panther Path and patronize the businesses that support our school.

Please note MAJOR CHANGES THIS YEAR…Back by popular demand – Moe’s Mexican! New this year – The Varsity! (What’ll ya have?”) The Varsity food truck will be cooking burgers, hot dogs, onion rings, and french fries on site for those who pre-order. They will also sell frosted oranges. (Yum yum!) Please read the flyer very carefully. There are spaces to preorder food, ride tickets, and arm bands. We look forward to another successful Spring Fling Carnival, Friday, May 1, 5:00-8:00pm!
