Happy & Health Community

In the spirit of inclusion, equity and understanding Pace has launched a social media and informational campaign to provide our students, families, and communities with resources to promote wellness, mindfulness, and equality.

We know that the holidays can be a stressful time and it is sometimes difficult to know where to look for helpful resources and tools.  Be sure to follow Pace on Facebook and check the Happy & Health Community page as we will be updating and providing links and tools weekly.  Themes like Mindful Monday and Wellness Wednesday will be featured. 

It is the hope of the Equity and Inclusion committee that we can provide meaningful resources to contribute to happy and healthy communities.
