Program Overview

PACE's focus is to create a partnership of teachers, children and parents committed to an enriched learning environment.

Key elements include:

  • Enrichment activities and active parent participation to support each student's learning style and developmental rate.
  • Encouragement of students to be independent and self-motivated learners.
  • Full access to all school activities and events including PE, music, and library, assemblies and after-school activities.
  • All PACE programs meet the curriculum requirements of the Northshore School District.

Family Commitment:

PACE families must contribute a minimum of 80 hours of volunteer work per year to support the program. Work may be either in the classroom or outside the classroom, based on parent's availability and interest.
