P.A.C.E. - Positive Attitudes Change Everything

Each month, the schools will emphasize and intentionally teach the designated character trait. This trait is reinforced at school and throughout the community via "P.A.C.E. Partners" committed to demonstrate and display the trait each month.


Our goal for students is to be not only college and career ready, but also ready for the tests of life, and not a life of tests.

Character is a dimension of life that helps us persevere during challenges, treat others with dignity, and advance our community. Therefore, excellence in education includes character development.


The 3 Pillars of the program are character skills, anti-bullying, and suicide prevention.


How can you help?

TCS is seeking business and community members to partner with us to fully fund and expand the P.A.C.E. program to also include digital citizenry and suicide prevention.

See the chart below to support the this student-initiated program. Contact mandi.logan@trussvillecityschools.com for more information.
