How to Join Us 

Considering PACE for 2022-2023?

Please email today for more information!  You will be given information about the program and be able to sign up for a virtual Q&A session, which is required in order to receive an application to enroll in the program.  Please note that there are limited spaces for each grade, 1-5.  If the classroom is full you may ask to be put on the waitlist and we will notify you if space becomes available prior to the start of the school year.  Students are not accepted into the program once school has started.

Considering PACE for 2023-2024?

PACE will hold an information night on Tuesday, October 18th, 2022 @ 7pm where you will learn more information about the program.  If you are interested in enrolling you will be asked to attend a tour and then given an application.  Applicants will be eligible for the lottery held on February 10th, 2023.  After the lottery drawing, if your child is being offered placement in PACE at Woodmoor, you will be notified via phone and given 48 hours to accept or decline. If your child is wait-listed, an email confirming that status will be sent to you by end of February. Do know that openings become available even as late as end of August. If you missed the lottery but would like to join our wait list, please email


Who Can Enroll in PACE?  

  • PACE is open to all children in the Northshore School District on a space-available basis. 
  • Feeder schools for PACE at Woodmoor include Arrowhead, Canyon Creek, Fernwood, Maywood Hills, Moorlands and Woodmoor Elementary Schools. 


How To Enroll in PACE

Upcoming Dates: In Person: 1pm on 10/27, 12/8, 1/12, 2/9. Zoom: 7pm on 11/3, 12/8, 1/26

  • Complete and turn in your application. You must complete both the tour and turn in the application form if you wish to have your child’s name in the lottery drawing or added to the waitlist. 
  • Your child’s name is placed in a blind lottery which determines placement for openings and waitlists. 
  • Families are notified of the status of their enrollment application mid-February. 
  • Notification is by phone when a placement is offered. A verbal response is required within 48 hours. 
  • When placement is accepted, an enrollment form will be emailed to you. The completed form needs to be returned with your enrollment contribution (currently, $75/child OR $150/family for 2 or more children) by the deadline stated on the form. 
  • When classes are full, an email is sent to remaining families who are placed on a waitlist. The waitlists are carried over from year to year unless you choose to be taken off. New applicants are added to the bottom of the waitlist again based on a blind lottery. 
  • Once a family is in the program and remains a member in good standing, siblings have priority for first-grade spots. For 2-5th graders, this is on a space-available basis only.  

To be Eligible for the Lottery

Applicant families must take a tour and turn in forms by 2/9/2023 at 12:00 p.m. to be eligible for the lottery. Applicant families may sign up for a tour at Information Night or schedule one via email between 10/19/2022 and 2/9/2023. Requests for tours in order to get into the lottery will be accepted through 2/9/2023 at 12:00 p.m. The program will make a reasonable effort to schedule and carry out as many tours as possible to fit within the lottery touring period.

What to Do If You Miss The Lottery 

It is not too late. Email to schedule a tour. Tours will continue through the end of the school year on a limited basis. Applicant families who tour and turn in their forms will be placed on the waitlist on a first-come, first-served basis.
