Parents Club

At Pace Academy, parents are vital to the personality and culture of our school. Pace thrives as a result of parental involvement, and our parents thrive because they’re involved. The Parents Club is not a club parents must join—all parents are automatically members.

As an army of volunteers, the Parents Club enhances every area of campus life and raises funds to enrich the school. There’s a place for every parent to use his or her talents.

The Parents Club looks for strong leaders, as well as those who are more comfortable following; individuals with artistic talent and those who love crunching numbers; parents who enjoy fundraising and those who would never ask for a dime. Whether it’s chairing the Fall Fair or the Auction, stuffing a mailing or helping out in the library, recognizing our amazing faculty and staff or caring for those in need, there is an important job waiting for every parent at Pace!  To learn more about volunteer opportunities or to get involved, please reach out to any of the officers or committee chairs listed here, or click “Volunteer” below to sign up for specific opportunities.
