PDS uses an off-campus filter called Captive Portal, which your son will have to sign into once every five days. While we showed your son how to do this, we wanted you to know the process too.

When your son launches his internet (Chrome, Safari, or Firefox), a blue screen, with "Captive Portal" will appear. Skip over the two boxes for username and password. Your son will need to click the link titled, "Google Auth,” which appears towards the bottom of that screen. Once he clicks on the link, he will be prompted to enter his PDS Gmail. (Your son should have a sticker in his AB with this information. Most accounts follow the scheme: first name + first letter of last name + 3 numbers @pdsmemphis.org. Ex: charlest465@pdsmemphis.org)

The next screen will have him enter his email password. (This is his AR password, plus his PDS graduation year. 6th graders use 2019, 5th graders use 20 and 4th graders use 21. Ex: hatsky2018 or hatsky19. This password is also located on his sticker.) He will have to click "Next" two times to finish the authentication process. Once he is done, his home internet connection will work. While this process will be repeated every five days, it should only take a minute to complete.

  1. He must be taking lessons (If he is not taking lessons, he must audition for Mrs. Southerland)
  2. He must be practicing regularly  “Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good.” -Malcolm Gladwell   Outliers

Please use the linked documents below to view available time slots (each date can have 5 boys maximum signed up).  The link at the bottom will take you to the form for your son's grade level.  Please enter your child's name (last name, first and his homeroom) on the date you would like.

Annual Giving Report 2018-2019


For Grades: 1st Grade 2nd Grade 3rd Grade 4th Grade 5th Grade 6th Grade

This year we want to give boys a chance to learn more about what it means to be a man while spending time with an adult that is teaching them about manhood. So, we are hosting a monthly breakfast focusing on the 7 Virtues of Manhood at school.

Our 7 Virtues of Manhood Breakfasts are for elementary grade boys (1-6) and their adult hosts.

The format will be as follows:

  • Start at 7:00 in the fellowship hall and enjoy Chick-fil-A breakfast around the tables, while sitting with others from your son’s grade as much as possible.
  • Hear what the virtue means from a 6th grade boy
  • Learn the virtue in more detail through a 7 minute lesson from one of our leaders
  • Spend the majority of the time working around the table with your boys with age appropriate questions and activities
  • End by 7:55

The boys will be dismissed to chapel from the breakfast. Adult hosts are welcome to join us for chapel from 8:00-8:30 in the sanctuary or depart after breakfast.

Register for The Humble Hero Breakfast - Friday, Oct. 18

Dates for the year:

  • Sept 6 - True Friend
  • Oct 18 - Humble Hero
  • Nov 81 8 - Servant Leader
  • Jan 10 - Pacesetter
  • February 7 - Bold Adventurer
  • March 20 - Noble Knight
  • April 3 - Faithful Follower

Because of the nature of this breakfast, each boy must have an adult host in order to attend. If one adult is going to be hosting multiple boys, please enter them as part of the group registration, even if that person has already registered with another boy. For families with special circumstances, please reach out to me and one of the school based mentors will host your son, or we can discuss another option.

We look forward to seeing you October 18.
