The boys should report to their homerooms at 5:45pm on Thursday evening. Boys in grades 1-5 should be dressed in white, long-sleeved dress shirts and khaki pants. The attire for the 6th-grade boys is based on their part in the program.
After the program, the boys will return to their homerooms. A parent must pick up each boy in the classroom. If someone other than a parent will pick up your son, you must notify the teacher in advance. We will not release a boy to an older sibling.
Because it may be difficult for young children to listen to the program, a nursery will be provided for children under the age of four. You must make reservations for the nursery via the PDS website.
Register For The Nursery
The deadline for making a reservation for the nursery is Monday, December 11th at 4:00 p.m.
We also request that all children attending the program remain seated in the pews with their parents for safety reasons.
