MORRIS COUNTY — Preschool Advantage is pleased to announce that on October 16, it will honor The Peck School of Morristown at its annual Turning Leaves Benefit Dinner.
The Peck School students and community have supported Preschool Advantage in a variety of ways in recent years.
Each fall, The Peck School’s seventh grade students organize a family-style pasta dinner fundraiser, “Pasta for Preschool” to support Preschool Advantage, which the students have chosen as their service learning partner. According to Molly Dunn, Executive Director of Preschool Advantage, “In just the last two years, the Peck School has raised enough money to fund the tuition of five children, enabling them to attend a quality preschool. The efforts of Peck students, staff, parents, and faculty have truly had a positive impact on our community.” The students also provide volunteer support for Preschool Advantage events including the annual Family Fun Day.
The Peck School, an independent kindergarten through eighth grade co-educational day school, is located in Morristown. The school emphasizes service learning, and instills and reinforces a sense of social awareness in their students by having them connect with local and global communities.
“We are so humbled to be recognized for our five-year partnership with Preschool Advantage,” said Andy Delinsky, Head of The Peck School. “Our faculty, staff, students, and parents are all inspired by the exceptional work Preschool Advantage does, and we believe so strongly in the program’s mission. Preschool Advantage changes lives for the better, and we are so glad our community is able to help this vitally important effort. At Peck, we are guided by a belief in “Consideration of Others,” and share the Preschool Advantage vision that all children deserve the benefits of a high-quality education.”
The 2019 Preschool Advantage Turning Leaves Benefit will be held on Wednesday, October 16 at the Brooklake Country Club in Florham Park. The evening will begin at 6:00 p.m. with a cocktail hour and silent auction, followed by dinner and a program.
