- The Peabody Public Schools are celebrating American Education Week with an open house on Thursday at the Kiley School and some special guests. Deputy Commissioner of Education Alan Ingram, state Sen. Joan Lovely and state Reps. Ted Speliotis and Leah Cole will all be stopping by for the open house from 3-5 p.m. at 21 Johnson St. and there will be exhibits from each school. Peabody High culinary students will also be providing light refreshments while the Performing Arts Departments offers the entertainment.
- The name of the hospital officially changed to Lahey Medical Center, Peabody back in September, but it wasn't until just recently that the new signage was installed to reflect that. “With our name change we are not changing any services other than working to continuously improve the resources and the level of care available to our patients and communities. The physicians, nurses and other providers whom our patients have come to know and trust are still providing the same high quality care and services," says Chief Operating Officer Robert Schneider.
- The Housing Works Thrift Shop over on Tremont Street is in need of donations of warm winter clothing for men, women and children. All donations are tax deductible. The shop could also use some volunteers for a few hours per month.
- Thanksgiving is just one week away. Peabody students will be dismissed early next Wednesday for Thanksgiving recess at the following times: 10:35 a.m. at the high school, 11:25 a.m. at the middle school and 11:55 a.m. at the elementary schools.
- The Peabody High Class of 1988 is holding its 25th class reunion Nov. 30 at the DoubleTree Hotel in Danvers.
