    • The sky is the limit! At PACE, we encourage you to blur the line between home and the PACE classroom and harness the many learning opportunities in the world around you and your student. Journal, observe, write, hypothesize, and then share these adventures with PACE. We encourage students to share their passions and discoveries with their classmates.
