Logo for the PACE at Wellington Program

PACE (Parents Active in Cooperative Education), a choice educational enrichment program offered through the Northshore School District, is currently accepting applications for the 2022-2023 school year. All applications are due prior to the February 10th PACE application deadline, and a virtual tour is required prior to application.

The hallmarks of PACE include an enhanced educational experience due to high parent involvement, enrichment activities, encouragement for students to become self-motivated learners and a strong sense of community among families. Families commit to a minimum number of volunteer hours per year of program support. PACE is located at three elementary school sites in the district with feeder patterns from all Northshore elementary schools. 

A tour is required prior to applying to the PACE program. To register for a virtual tour hosted by PACE at Wellington Elementary, please email For more information about the PACE program, please visit
