  9. 9. PACE Program Basics<br />The program will focus on interdisciplinary studies, and the museum staff will work closely with PACE instructors to incorporate learning into the basic school curriculum<br />It will help to build in arts education—there is currently no formal arts instruction at the school, although there are opportunities for creative expression<br />The PACE partnership will help to develop a lifelong interest in art and museum program attendance<br />Timeline: Program will begin in October and run through May, with students getting one classroom visit and one museum visit per month<br />
