5 Things to Know: Brr... Peabody Students Brave Polar Plunge for Charity
A group of Peabody High's National Honor Society students took their yearly plunge into the frigid Atlantic to support the Special Olympics.
Today is Thursday, March 7. Here are five things to know today in Peabody.
- Brrr... The George Peabody Chapter of the National Honor Society at Peabody High made its yearly trek down to Revere Beach Feb. 23 with other brave souls to jump in the frigid ocean waters for charity. The students participate in the Polar Plunge (formerly the Passion Plunge) to raise money for the Special Olympics. Their "superhero" personas appear to have helped them brave the icy waters and raise more than $1,000 for the cause.
- Firefighters vs. Harlem Superstars: Stop down to the gym at Peabody High this Saturday to watch Peabody firefighters take on the Harlem Superstars. The firefighters will even get some help from Tanner City hoops legends.
- Stage One: But first, did you get a chance to see Stage One Perform "Check, Please" or "Night Train to Bolina" yet? The high school drama club is holding a special performance tonight before competing in the semi-final round of state competition on Saturday at Weston High School.
- Students vs. Teachers: On Friday, stop down for some March Madness at the Carroll School, as the fifth-graders take on their teachers in a game of hoops.
- The Making a Difference in Peabody Foundation will be holding a fundraiser March 14 (5:30-7:30 p.m.) at Petrillo's. There will be appetizers, a raffle and silent auction -- $20 per person (can be paid at the door).
