Dear Parents,

Today, every boy in 1st – 5th grade received a red folder containing his required summer reading and math assignments.

The folders contain all the information your son will need in order to complete his required summer work. In contrast to previous years, all required math assignments are contained within the red folder. If you would like for your son to have additional math practice, he may login to Dreambox (rising 2nd–4th), IXL (rising 2nd–6th), or Mangahigh (rising 6th) using his username and password found on the front pocket of the folder. For your convenience, we have included links to each program via the Quicklinks menu at the top of the PDS website.

Today’s guest speaker was Drew Sippel, Executive Director, Capstone Education Group (Cornerstone Prep).

All this month we’ve been exploring the fourth of our Seven Virtues of Manhood, the Moral Motivator. A Moral Motivator makes a difference in the world. Injustices offend them. They are motivated to build communities that are moral.

Sippel’s talk centered on “Moses, Clemson, and you,” and the ways boys can make a difference in the world. Because of the circumstances surrounding his adoption by Pharaoh, Moses grew up with unique gifts and the opportunity to help others. We all have different, God-given gifts.

Chaplain Braxton Brady was our chapel speaker today. Coach Brady kicked off chapel by asking the boys to think about Christmas presents. What was the best gift you have ever received?

To his credit, one PDS boy did offer up that Jesus was the best gift. It might have just been a Sunday school answer, but I believe he was sincere. Brady went out to tell the boys a story from his childhood when the thing he wanted more than anything in the world was a model train set.
