Partners Advancing Character Education (PACE) is a Spokane Valley initiative. PACE features a different character trait each month to be the focus of multi-faceted communication, motivation and educational programs throughout the entire month. The PACE Awards is an appreciation event to honor and celebrate students who demonstrate the importance of good character.
The character trait for November is Citizenship. What is citizenship?
Citizenship is positively contributing to society and community as well as dutifully respecting authority and the law.
