Dear Peck Elementary School Families,

 

It is truly my pleasure to extend a warm and heartfelt welcome to you as we begin the 2021-22 school year.  I have served as the principal at Peck Elementary School since 2017 and I have been an educator in Jeffco since 1997.  It has been an honor to serve the community in which my husband and I raised our three children.  


Peck is a community school nestled in the Majestic View neighborhood and has served the students of Arvada since 1966. Many of our staff have lived in the community for a long time, attended Peck when they were young, and/or enrolled their children in Peck.  To those students and parents who are new to the Peck family, we extend an especially warm welcome and best wishes for an exciting and productive year in your new school.


Peck is proud to have a new STEM Lab, constructed this summer, to incorporate Science, Technology, Engineering, and Math in a student centered, hand-on learning environment.  Our STEM Lab also incorporates robotics, circuitry, and computer programming.  Students from kindergarten through fifth grade experience STEM connections across the curriculum, developing 21st century skills, collaboration, innovation, creativity, and problem solving skills. 


Peck is a school built on excellence in education, tradition, and strength of community.  Our dedicated staff demonstrate genuine concern for students’ academic and social growth. Teachers at Peck work to differentiate instruction to meet the needs of all students, whether Gifted and Talented or in need of academic interventions, to engage all students in the learning process through the use of research based instructional strategies that promote deeper content knowledge. 


Peck promotes positive behavior and character education through the demonstration of Ram PRIDE, which is explicitly taught, modeled, and celebrated throughout the school year.
