On Dec. 2, workers placed the Kam Memar Lower School's final major beam, marking its official “topping out.” Students watched and cheered from the playground as the beam—signed by all Lower School students, faculty and staff—was hoisted high into the sky and secured atop the building.
Accelerate Pace’s $35-million phase-one goal provides for the construction of the Kam Memar Lower School and updates to the Lower School classroom building. When phase one is complete, we will launch phase two of Accelerate Pace, which will provide for the restoration and renovation of Pace’s historic Castle.
The new gymnasium and playground will benefit rainy day recess, early morning arrivals and more. Having more room and new, accessible facilities brings so many advantages!"

Accelerate Giving reminds us that for Pace to remain the educational leader it is today, we must all be intentional about giving. As we accelerate support to the next level, we will grow our community with state-of-the-art facilities, enhanced technology and spaces that are designed and accessible to all students. Our support of this new phase leaves a legacy for generations to come."

We're doing a good job with what we have, but we will be able to do so much more! I look forward to accelerating everything special about Pace. In particular, I welcome the addition of spaces that fully accommodate academic programming and music and arts instruction, and that showcase student projects and school-wide themes."
Head of Lower School
When I look at the plans for our new building, I can envision new opportunities for teacher-student-parent interactions. Relationships are at the heart of who we are at Pace and ultimately what make Pace special.
