I truly wish I don't have to be in the Pace observation! I would rather be in the dark!

you are not required to watch the pace observation in which your child is participating; you may sit in the common room if you and/or your child are more comfortable with that set-up.

FYI, for a middle school applicant, our child was asked by one interviewer about how many TV's we had in our house. I thought that was a very interesting way for a school to get a glimpse into a family's priorities....

Although your post is old, I will reply since alot of people are still reading! A good thing is, if you can, visit the school before the observation with your child. Maybe on a weekend, athletic event, etc. I found it helps children feel more comfortable if they have been there before.
Also, plan for timeliness! Leave plenty of time for breakfast and meeting the other children at the table

the other extremely important thing: Don't under estimate the power of the teacher recommendation! Catholic schools in particular weigh heavily on these even more than the observation. Become familiar with what they are asking (in some cases, do you pay your bill on time!).... communicate with your child's teachers at conferences etc. You should be able to assess your own child and know where they fall more or less. The social and emotional areas are key. There are so many great applicants that if a school sees a red flag, it helps with the weeding out.
