PACE. was created in 2012 in response to the ever increasing budget cuts to schools at the state and District level. Emerson’s performing arts and technology programs were at risk of being eliminated. Funding for the library, classroom supplies and field trips were at an all time low.

PACE. strives, through its many activities, to raise enough funds to keep the programs alive and to make sure that all the teachers have the tools they need to provide our  children with a motivating learning environment.   In addition to bridging the budget gaps, PACE. will seek to fund large scale projects, including a new computer lab and green sports field.  We have already secured funding for new sports equipment  and for Emerson's music program implemented 2016-2017.
