Jane D Hull, Governor of Arizona (1997 to 2003)

PACE at Lockwood is now conducting tours for the 2024-2025 school year! Join us on one of our tours to learn more about the program and to see if it would be the right option for your family.

Tours run from October 2023 through February 2024 with both virtual and in-person options.

PACE stands for “Parents Active in Cooperative Education.”

We are a choice educational enrichment program offered at Lockwood Elementary through Northshore School District (NSD) for grades 1-5. 

PACE builds a learning environment that includes active family participation; to support each student’s learning style and developmental rate; innovative teaching techniques; and a unique partnership of teachers, families and students.  
We value respect, compassion, and responsibility in building our community of lifelong learners.
The PACE program serves students of all learning capabilities, follows the NSD curriculum and also provides an enriched educational experience through additional field trips, events, and speakers.

   Are you new to PACE this year? Have lots of questions? The PACE New Family Mentor team is here for you, to make your transition into PACE as smooth as possible. If you have a question and don’t know who to ask, or just feel like you’re in the dark, please contact us
   Also, soon we will be reaching out to you to introduce you to your “buddy family” (a PACE family who has a student in your student’s class). Your “buddy family” will be another resource for you to rely on as you navigate your first year of PACE.

Looking forward to hearing from you!
