For the third year in a row, the Elementary Division will break away from our regular schedule on October 2 and 3 to engage in two days of STEAM-infused learning!

This year’s Fall Breakaway is inspired by the work of Leonardo Da Vinci. Da Vinci was a man with extraordinary interests and talent. Our boys will explore Da Vinci as a scientist, engineer, mathematician, musician, artist, and dreamer (inventor).

As we prepare for the big event, you can help us by sending in the following items:
empty paper towel cardboard rolls, empty cereal boxes, small cardboard boxes, and blocks of styrofoam. Thanks for your help!

Crusader Café is back for another year! 

“My first ever performance was at Crusader Café. Now I have performed at some very popular music venues in Memphis such as Young Avenue Deli, Overton Square, and Loflin Yard. Crusader Café was an inspiration to me and the beginning of an overall successful career in drumming.” -Alex Smith

Crusader Café is held during lunchtime and is a time where a boy can showcase his musical talents to his peers and others. We will be dining and entertaining in the Fellowship Hall.

Dates for the Café

Thursday October 25
Thursday January 31
Thursday May 2

There are 2 requirements your son must meet in order to play at Crusader Café.

Here are a few more details about paying for your son’s lunch.

The EZ School App accepts Credit and Debit Cards only.


  • Add money to your son’s account when ordering your meals.
  • Add money to your account without ordering meals. You can order the meals at a later time.
  • Or you can order meals and add additional money for unanticipated items your son may want.

To add money to your account without ordering a meal, click on the Save/Pay button at the bottom of the menu and it will ask you if you want to add money.

The credit card company (not PDS or Piccadilly) charges a small credit card fee per transaction (i.e. each time you pay for ordered meals or add money to your account).

The fee is 2.9% of the total amount you have ordered plus any money you have added to the account + a 30 cent flat fee.


Number of Meals Ordered for August 12
Number of Meals Ordered for September 18
Total Meals Ordered 30
Cost per Meal $6.16
Total $184.8
Credit Card Fee Percentage 2.9%
Percentage Credit Card Fee 5.3592
Flat Credit Card Fee $0.3
Total Amount Charge to Card $190.4592

If you ordered lunch every day for your son and you were able to do that in 4 transactions, your total credit card fee would be only about $30 for the year.

There is a minimum credit card fee of $1.95, so to minimize the fee order as infrequently as you can and preferably over $50 at a time.
