4th grade parents, October is your month to show the PDS faculty and staff how much we appreciate them! Please sign up to bring a treat on Thursday, October 26, to celebrate this month’s birthdays. (New this year - each grade is responsible for one month.)

Please bring your items on disposable trays OR label with your name if you would like to leave your tray and pick it up at the lobby later that day.

Thanks in advance for your help!

Please register your son online by Friday, October 20th.

The cost to play Intramural Basketball is $225.00 and will be billed to your PDS account. This fee will help pay for the league expenses, referees, team pictures, and uniforms that the boys will keep. Any boy who has not previously submitted a physical and the necessary concussion and cardiac arrest forms needs to do so before the first practice. All forms can be turned in to the school nurse.


After everyone has signed up, the players will be divided up evenly and put on a team with one of the PDS coaches. They will play only PDS teams. There will be three separate leagues (4th Grade League, 5th Grade League, and 6th Grade League).


The complete schedule for all practices and games, with all times and dates, will be out soon. Each team will have one or two activities a week beginning mid-November.

The 4th Grade League will participate on most, but not all, Tuesdays and Thursdays.

The 5th Grade League and the 6th Grade League will participate on most, but not all, Wednesdays and Fridays.


Practices scheduled on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday will start at 3:25pm and all boys should be picked up in front of the main PDS lobby at 4:30pm. Wednesday practices will start at 2:55pm and all boys should be picked up in front of the main PDS lobby at 4:15pm.


Games scheduled on Tuesday, Thursday, and Friday will start at 3:25pm and all boys should be picked up in front of the main PDS lobby at 4:30pm. There will be double-headers on Wednesdays. The first games will start at 3:00pm and all boys should be picked up in front of the main PDS lobby at 4:00pm. The second games will start at 4:00pm and all boys should be picked up in front of the main PDS lobby at 5:00pm. All boys participating in Wednesday double-header games will dress out together immediately after school. Boys participating in the second games will sit in the bleachers and watch the first games.


Boys must wear their uniforms and basketball/tennis shoes at all practices and games.


If you have any questions please call me at the Athletic Department, 842–4626.
