Dear Peck Elementary School Families,

 

I am extremely happy to join Peck Elementary School as your new principal.  Peck is a great school with a rich history of academic excellence and collaborative partnerships between staff, parents, and the Arvada community.  I have served Jeffo Public Schools for 20 years and have been an administrator for the last five years.  My last administrative assignment was at Arvada West High School.  Prior to that, I was a content specialist for Jeffco Public Schools, writing curriculum for grades 7-12.  I also had the privilege of serving on the Colorado Department of Education’s committee to rewrite state history standards for preschool through high school.  While my eleven years as a classroom teacher were at the secondary level, I have also served as the interim principal at three Jeffco elementary schools.  My work with diverse populations of students has provided me with a broad understanding of leaning expectations for all levels.  I received the Jefferson Foundation Teacher of the Year Award in 2003 and was named this year’s Jefferson County Assistant Principal of the Year.

 

As a product of Jeffco Public Schools, attending Stober Elementary, Manning Junior High, and Wheat Ridge High School, my life was deeply enhanced by my classroom teachers.  They modeled the importance of education and inspired me to give back to my community.  I received my Bachelor’s Degree from Colorado State University and my Master’s Degree from the University of Colorado, Denver.

 

I am also a proud Jeffco parent with deep connections to the Arvada community.  All three of my sons graduated from Jeffco Public Schools well prepared for success in college and their careers.  While my sons were in elementary school, they played basketball for the YMCA in the Peck gymnasium.   My family and I have many fond memories of the time we spent at Peck.

 

I believe that great schools are the result of great teachers, and that every student should receive high-quality instruction.  The education of our children is a complicated job and cannot be accomplished without the assistance of parents and the surrounding community.   There are many ways to get involved at Peck Elementary School.  I welcome your ideas and encourage you to volunteer whenever possible.  If you have questions, concerns, or would like to hear about more ways to participate in your child’s education, please feel free to contact me at Deborah.Pearce@jeffco.k12.co.us.

 

I am very excited to be a part of the Peck Elementary family and look forward to collaborating with you in the coming years.  It is my sincere desire to provide expanded opportunities for all of our students to help them find academic and personal success.  Thank you for the opportunity to serve our great community.

 

Sincerely,

Deb Pearce
