Peck Slip is committed to creating an environment where every student, staff member and family member feels respected and appreciated, regardless of their differences. Our workshop series is devoted to engaging in dialogue around the importance of understanding others’ experiences and stories, looking at research around identity development and how/when it manifests itself in kids. Through this important work, we can build inclusion in a meaningful, supported, and genuine way that will help our children be open and accepting of everyone around them.
