This is the first article in a three part series on helping our children grow in wisdom, stature, and favor with God and man (Luke 2:52).

I recently read an article about how artificial intelligence will transform so many things that the entire way schools teach children must change. The article argued that most of what is done in the workplace will soon be done by machines and robots. If artificial intelligence can provide most of the knowledge and skills traditionally taught in schools, the author suggests, the most important thing we can teach is character. Skills and information might become irrelevant, but character is essential to navigating every part of history—even the years ahead of us.

The PDS Birthday Book Club has served for more than twenty years as a way to honor your son on his birthday. It has strengthened our library tremendously. Thousands of books have been added to the library because of this wonderful program.

Boys enrolled in the club are given the opportunity to be the first to check out the new books chosen in their names. Shown in the front of the book is a special plate with the boy’s name and birthday. If you would like to place a book in the library in honor or memory of someone, it can be handled on this form, as well. This is a great way to remember teachers at Christmas or at the end of the year.

We request a minimum donation of $15.00 that should be paid in advance. Please fill out the form below and return it to the PDS Library with a check made payable to the PDS Birthday Book Club. Since this is a contribution, your gift is tax-deductible. For more information, contact Brooke Clement at 842-4641.

Dear Parents,

With the start of school right around the corner, I wanted to share some exciting news regarding food service for the 2019–2020 school year.

This year, all food will be cooked on campus with the freshest of ingredients. Overseeing the menu planning will be Rachel Berry. Rachel has a strong nutrition background and knows how to plan delicious meals that boys love. Each lunch will include an entree paired with a fruit or vegetable. Other options will consist of fresh fruit, raw vegetables, salads, and turkey and ham sandwiches. Our goal is to create meals that will have our boys looking forward to lunch each day. Portions will be “boy-friendly,” and there will be plenty of food for everyone on the program. In addition, we will designate days for catered meals to be served from favorite local restaurants.

Our own Lyssa Fisackerly will be administering the lunch program. She will be our onsite manager and your first contact for anything related to lunch. You can reach Lyssa at lfisackerly@pdsmemphis.org or 901–842–4609.

 

Lunch Program Details 2019


PLEASE NOTE THAT YOUR CHILD (1st through 6th grades) WILL NEED TO SIGN UP FOR THE LUNCH PLAN THROUGH THE PDS WEBSITE BY AUGUST 8TH.


Sign-Up for Lunch Program

It is time to sign-up for the PDS Lunch Program! We will be offering a vast menu of hot lunches cooked on campus. The cost for the 1st Semester Lunch Plan will be $505. The cost for the 1st Semester Drink Plan will be $95.

Lyssa Fisackerly will be administering the lunch program. She will be our onsite manager and your first contact for anything related to lunch.

Overseeing the menu planning will be Rachel Berry. Menu items will be made from fresh and wholesome ingredients. There will be many options available and each boy should be able to choose a balanced meal even if he does not choose the hot lunch on any particular day.

These items include cheddar and mozzarella cheese portions, yogurt, fresh fruit, raw vegetables, and pudding to name a few. Salads and turkey and ham sandwiches will also be available on a daily basis as well. Ice cream will be offered on Wednesdays and Fridays. A catered meal from favorite local restaurants will be served on designated days about once a week.

You can feel sure that the PDS lunch program will provide a balanced and healthy lunch as well as the convenience of not having to pack a lunch!

NOTE: AUTOMATIC RE-ENROLLMENT

Please note that if your son is enrolled in the 1st Semester Lunch/Drink Plan, he will be automatically enrolled and billed $505/$95 for the 2nd semester. Please let us know by December 1, 2019 if you do not wish to be billed for the 2nd semester.

The Fall 2019 issue of PDS Spirit will be arriving in mailboxes starting this week.
