A Lesson in Civil Rights

On Friday, April 30, the eighth grade and faculty advisers traveled to Montgomery, Ala., for a day-long journey into the history of the Civil Rights Movement. Students had kicked off the year by reading author Bryan Stevenson’s book, Just Mercy, a powerful story about the work of the Equal Justice Initiative. While in Montgomery, they visited the Equal Justice Initiative and toured The National Memorial for Peace and Justice and The Legacy Museum, which tells the story of America’s history of racial injustice and its legacy. The trip also included a visit to Montgomery’s Riverfront Park.

It’s Time to Return Pace Laptops!

As the Pace community transitioned to virtual learning and the 2020-2021 school progressed, many Middle and Upper School students received school-issued laptop computers for virtual learning. Those laptops are now in need of important IT updates and must be returned to the school. Members of the Class of 2021 who received laptops this year should return them by Friday, April 30. Students in grades six through 11 should return their laptops as soon as they are no longer needed for current coursework, but by May 21 at the latest. Laptops should be delivered to the Woodruff Library. Questions? Please contact Director of Libraries Matt Ball
