"Stuff the Truck" Event on December 11th

Wellington PACE and PTA invite you to give back to the community by participating in the "Stuff the Truck Event" on December 11th. Details in attached flyer.

Tracking Your Hours

Welcome!  Our new site helps you to make keeping track of your volunteer hours easier than ever. Here are a few tips and notes:

  • Enter your hours every week - get credit for the work you do!
  • All hours earned by family members add up automatically into your family's total
  • Make sure each member logs in separately to track their hours


How does it work?

  • Click the "Dashboard" link on the "Member Area" page, and log in
  • Check your family's progress toward the 80-hour requirement on your Dashboard
  • In the Hours area, choose the appropriate category from the menu, and make sure each family member enters hours separately. It's important to us to be able to track true time spent on specific activities. This info is used to assess the commitment level required for each role, which we relay during the selection of support positions.


What counts?

  • Time spent on your Support Position
  • In-class volunteer time
  • General Meetings [attendance required]
  • Classroom meetings (twice per year) [attendance required]
  • Board, team, or other meetings
  • Sock Hop planning activity
  • Some field trip time (max 10 hours/day)
  • PTA hours: limited to 20 per year for solely PTA activities, but unlimited for joint PTA/PACE activities

...and more! Ask your Room Rep for more details.

PACE Garden Club

Wellington Gardening Club: Spring 2017

Gardening time!
Let’s learn about edible and non-edible plants, talk about seed germination, and get some veggies planted in the ground.

The Garden Club is one way Wellington is giving back to our community. What we grow, we taste-test; then we donate the rest to the Maltby Food Bank.

Not only will students learn what is needed to have a healthy, natural garden, they will experience it! They will get their hands dirty with digging, weeding, prepping, and maintaining a spring vegetable garden.

Welcome to PACE 2016-17

Dear PACE Families,
Summer is quickening to an end and our family is eking out as much summer fun as we can before ushering in the start of the school year on September 6th. With the first day of school fast approaching allow me to welcome you to the 2016-17 school year on behalf of your PACE Board.

This year has many exciting changes in store. Northshore School District welcomes our new superintendent; Dr. Michelle Reid with whom we are excited to begin working. Our district is also working on our grade transition for all schools which will be taking effect in the 2017-18 school year.

We are also very pleased to announce a couple of new members to our PACE teaching family. A huge welcome to Mrs. DiMarco who will be teaching 3rd grade, Mrs. Rayl who will be teaching 4th and Mr. Booth, who is new to Wellington, but not new to the district, who will be teaching 5th grade. We are inspired by their dedication and the enthusiasm shown thus far, and the school year hasn’t yet begun!

Our first get-together of the year is our annual ice cream social where you can meet our new teachers, room reps and other PACE families on Thursday, Sep 1st from 5:30-7pm at Cottage Lake Park. If your last name begins with the letters A-M, please bring your favorite ice cream topping and if your last name begins with the letters N-Z, please bring ice cream and a scoop labeled with your name.
