Parent Partnership


Our Partnership with Parents

When you choose The Peck School for your child, you are choosing a community for your family that is dedicated to a rigorous academic program and unmatched character education—a community guided by values for more than 130 years.

We encourage every family to commit to and participate in The Peck School experience.

We want you to become an integral part of the closely knit, warmly welcoming community that enriches the lives of everyone it touches. Your involvement and your investment—your gifts of time, talent, and financial support—touch every facet of Peck and make a world of difference to our students and faculty. 

The Peck Parents Association

The Peck Parents Association (PA) is at the heart of the Peck experience, harnessing the power of many parent volunteers to help bring events and initiatives to life. When you enroll your child at Peck, you automatically become a member of the Parents Association. A vibrant and engaged PA leads to lasting friendships, a familial atmosphere, and dynamic parent-school partnerships—benefits that are felt by our students, their families, and our faculty and staff. This is the essence of what distinguishes the Peck community.

The Parents Association supports Peck by helping parents build relationships with other parents and the school, gain a better understanding of Peck, and promote a sense of community by assisting with social, fundraising, and educational events and activities.

Ways to Get Involved

Lunch Proctors

One of the best ways to give back to Peck is to proctor a Lower School or Upper School lunch table. Not only do you get to enjoy a meal with your child and their classmates, but you also give a teacher a period off lunch duty!

Class Parents

Class Parents serve a vital role in supporting both the grade level teachers and fellow parents in the grade. They share helpful announcements and reminders to ensure all families feel connected to one another.

Committee Service

The Parents Association supports a variety of committees parents may choose to volunteer with. From helping to run the School Store or Swap Shop to chairing a signature event like the Spring Fundraiser, there are opportunities to give of time and talent in ways that work for each individual. 

Parents Association Group on Inclusivity

The Parents Association doesn’t just host community and social events! Parents Association Group on Inclusivity (PAGI) meetings provide opportunities to engage in meaningful dialogue while exploring issues of diversity. These conversations help develop a deeper understanding of identity, foster consideration of others, and support an inclusive and equitable community. Past PAGI events have included a book club discussion of Brené Brown's book "Braving the Wilderness," community support circles in the aftermath of traumatic world events, and family heritage shares.
