“Fostering stewardship by supporting the Central Catholic community academically, socially and spiritually.”

What is PACE?

PACE (Partners for Academic and Community Enrichment) is a group of parents whose intention is to continue the emphasis on academic enrichment for students and support for teachers.

PACE is made up of two different committees. These include the Hospitality Committee and Academic Committee. The Hospitality Committee plans and provides the occasional lunch or special treats for the teachers and food for judges of academic fairs, etc. The Academic Committee gathers teachers requests for PACE funds throughout the school year to support the different educational enhancement activities.

What has PACE been up to?


Our Hospitality Committee is led by Jennifer Dimmitt. Here’s what Hospitality has been up to during the 1st semester.

  • Meals for teachers during parent/teacher conferences.
  • Variety of goodies provided for teachers at Christmas.
  • Christmas lunch for teachers.


Our Academics Committee is led by Carrie Vinarcik. The following items were purchased for the teachers during the 1st semester.

  • Google cardboard VR viewers
  • Materials and competition supplies for Academic

    Super Bowl

  • Band and Choir contest fees and bus fees
  • Materials for Spanish Immersion class

How does PACE do this?

PACE is able to provide hospitality and academic enrichment because of funds raised through donations, the annual Fish Fry, Chili supper and April flower sales. We rely on your support.
