The Peck Promise Campaign is a tapestry of those academic and character-based ideals. This summer, continued campus modifications will create a new Upper School STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art and Math) Wing in the Caspersen-Tomlinson building, as well as an expanded Lower School science lab to bolster an already-stellar academic program. With the beautiful new Peck Commons opening this fall, the family dining program will continue to bring community members together around a meal and conversation. A new InDeCoRe Lab in the same building will further support our award-winning character development program.
“Everything the school is investing in with the campaign just seems to make sense. In the end, it will be seen as a short-term expense for a much more stable, long-term investment in curriculum and character education for the school,” they said. “That made us really excited.”
The core values that drew the Brooks to Peck initially—respect, loyalty, perseverance, empathy, responsibility, and honesty—have created an inimitable family culture on campus. The relationships they have developed with other parents in Aria’s grade extend far beyond the classroom, and they feel those bonds are unique to the Peck community. As Levee said, “We get along with every family in our class really well. When we talk to our friends from other schools, there is no interaction after the kids get picked up from school. We definitely feel that [Peck] is something special for us.”
The Brooks are proud to support The Peck Promise Campaign as it builds classroom spaces and community places that continue to foster the family values and community ties they cherish. But their financial support of this crucial endeavor was almost a foregone conclusion.
“My wife and I have always known we would want to give back somehow and pay it forward,” said Levee. “So when Andy [Delinsky] called we already knew we wanted to participate.”
