Dear 4th & 5th Grade Parents,

It is hard to believe that I am sending you a schedule for our last week of school. It seems like yesterday we were preparing for the beginning of the school year. Below are the logistical matters for the last few days of school.

Wednesday, May 23

Class parties

Thursday, May 24

Boys arrive at 8:30. (Early room starts at the normal time on Thursday and Friday)
Class Day begins at 9:00. (Regular PDS dress code)
Dismissal will be at 11:30. (Regular carpool)

Friday, May 25

Boys arrive at 8:30 (dressed in navy blazer, white shirt, tie, khaki pants)

Graduation lasts from 9:00 – 10:15

*All parents are more than welcome to attend graduation and see their sons sing. If you are not attending, please have a designated place to pick-up your son. Graduation day is considered a regular school day. Attendance will be taken and noted.  We need all 4th & 5th grade boys in attendance in the choir loft as we honor our 2018 graduating class. If, for some reason, your son will not be able to attend, please contact his homeroom teacher. I hope everyone has a restful and exciting summer!

Thanks, Mark

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. Just as last year, 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.

The library will be open this summer for checking out books and taking AR tests. The library schedule can be found on the inside pocket of the red folder.

On the first day of school in August, your son will need to return his completed assignments in the red folder.

Enjoy summer!

Laura Glenn
Head of Elementary

Dear 4th Parents,

On Thursday, April 26, we will be taking the 4th graders to Cordova Skating Rink for their "ice breaker" with their Mentor for next year. (I will talk in more detail about our mentor program in our first parent meeting next school year in August.) This should be a great time as we look for more ways to partner with you in the development of your son.  We will need four volunteers per class to carpool the boys to and from the skating rink. Drivers need to be at the school by 10:20 and back at the skating rink by 1:00. Please email your son's homeroom teacher if you are interested in driving.  Below is the information:


Where:    Cordova Skating Rink
When:     Thursday, April 26 - 10:30-1:00
Attire:      Regular school clothes
Cost:       $20 (skating, lunch & t-shirt) Please do not send money. Your PDS account will be billed.
