December 21st Peabody Firefighters will be visiting our school!

November 20, 2018

Dear Brown Families,


On Friday, December 21st, some of the Peabody Firefighters will be visiting our school. This year marks the seventh anniversary of the tragic loss of Jim Rice, a Peabody Firefighter and father of three former Brown School students.  In honor of Jim Rice’s memory, we have annually invited the firefighters to the school so that we can show them our appreciation. Students make cards, sing songs and present the firefighters with tokens of our appreciation.


We will be collecting the donations listed below from December 3 through December 19th. All donations can be sent to your child’s teacher or to Mrs. Goldsworthy’s Classroom, Room 201. If you would like to make a monetary donation, we will then purchase any of the items not received. Please address the envelope to Courtney Goldsworthy.


Please take the time to discuss with your child(ren) the roles the firefighters play in our community. Remind them that they will be working during the holiday season and often have to leave their families on holidays so that we are safe. Thank you for all of your support!
