Boys Need to Wiggle and Move

Boys move. A lot. They're loud and messy and have trouble sitting still. And that's completely okay. We're experts at channeling that energy.

Want to learn more about what we teach our boys? Check out our online curriculum guide.

Want to see HOW we teach our boys? Please register for our Early Childhood Open House on November 7 at 9:00am.

PDS Artists Honored at BRACE Art Exhibition

PDS Art teacher Casey Smith was selected as art teacher of the year as part of this year's Briarcrest Regional Art Contest & Exhibition (BRACE).

When presented with the 2019 Amy Lange Memorial Art Teacher Award, the following was said of Mr. Smith, "He loves every moment of it, especially teaching his elementary-aged boys, sometimes whose energy and excitement is totally contagious."

Congratulations Mr. Smith! We are so proud of you and thankful for all you do at PDS! Congratulations to the boys who won awards at the show!
