Eddie the Spartan, the mascot for Monsignor Edward Pace High School in Miami Gardens, welcomed students Aug. 17 during a car parade that was part of orientation for the new students. Orientation days in previous years would include campus tours and visits to classrooms, but those traditions couldn’t happen during the coronavirus pandemic. Students began attending classes online on Aug. 19. Shown above is Eddie the Spartan and student Matthew Sanchez. Photo courtesy of the school.
