This has been a very long month. While the situation may not be ideal, that's not stopping PACE from making the most out of it.
This last month in P4D, Mrs. Parsley had the students create a new dance performance within our distance learning class. For those who missed it here’s the complete video titled “Connection” https://drive.google.com/file/d/1mFxU6T2iqfa7VLmajMaol1HZsXdxUPBp/view?fbclid=IwAR2 7Aqgs_cuQ2lKi6oP3_POoKM6Mw-zKt2PHGV1dX3wAtTqVZT0wrrqIozA.
Mrs. Parsley has also given some class lessons on hand-washing for 20 seconds while still being able to dance/move.
The PACE Instagram Account has been doing fun, interactive stories each week, finding hilarious responses to some of its finest questions. Follow them @PACE_MHS
