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 October is Responsibility. What is responsibility?
Responsibility is being accountable, the pursuit of excellence, and the exercise of self-control.
“The next time you find yourself trying to decide between your phone and your chores, remember that responsibility is your choice!”
-Dorie Kiesbuy, 2016 Woodland Middle School 6th Grader
“A responsible person accepts the consequences of their own actions and decisions. They consciously make decisions that seek to improve themselves or to help others.”
-Verne Reed, PACE President and guest columnist October 2019.
