The Upper School Student Council has kicked off Homecoming Week with dress-down theme days. Wednesday is Anything-But-A-Backpack Day; Thursday is Fire and Ice (underclassmen are fire; upperclassmen are ice); and on Friday, Upper School students will receive this year’s Homecoming T-shirt. 

Friday morning, Oct. 1, the entire student body will come together for an all-school pep rally at 9 a.m. The theme is Pink Storm, so all students should wear pink. Masks will be required of all students at all times. Please note that the pep rally is for students and faculty/staff only.

Then, on Friday evening, the entire Pace community is invited to cheer on the varsity football team at Riverview Sports Complex (5700 Riverview Road, Mableton 30126). The Knights face rival Lovett School at 7:30 p.m.

A few important reminders:

  • Tickets (for adults and non-Pace students) are $7—CASH ONLY—unless you are a member of the Booster Club (and then admission is free for up to two adults). It’s not too late to join the Booster Club. Memberships are available at a variety of levels, some of which include reserved parking spots at Riverview (a limited number remain).

  • All current Pace students and faculty/staff may attend the game free of charge.

  • It’s a Pink Out in the student section—let’s represent with Knight pride and passion!

  • Stadium gates open at 6 p.m.

  • The parking lot will fill fast, so please carpool or arrive at the stadium early.
