Every year, sixth grade students in the Cypress School District participate in the P.A.C.E. program, which is sponsored by the Cypress Police Department. P.A.C.E. stands for Positive Actions thru Character Education. It is a 10-week program designed to support student safety by enhancing awareness and influencing choices in the areas of internet safety, social media, peer pressure, bullying, and drug abuse. Students develop skills to effectively solve problems and make good choices in lessons taught by the department’s civilian Community Outreach Officer. At the conclusion of the program, students are recognized for their commitment to being a responsible citizen during school assemblies attended by parents, city officials, and school/district staff.
