Dear 4th–6th Grade Parents,

As you know, Sunday, February 2nd is PDS Sunday. This is a special day in the life of PDS as we celebrate our long-standing relationship with Second Presbyterian Church, which founded PDS in 1949 and remains a close and significant friend to the school. PDS Sunday is an important way for our boys to connect with our school’s history through participation and leadership in this worship service.

The parents and families of all boys are invited. PDS Sunday is a fabulous opportunity for us to worship together as a PDS community. We believe that students, parents and teachers all singing and praising God together is beautiful way to celebrate what God is doing at PDS, throughout Memphis and the world. For more on how we are designed to worship see our this recent blog post Worship: An Invitation To The Joy You Were Made For.

Listed below you will find important information regarding PDS Sunday.

  • Boys in 4th–6th grade should be dropped off in the gym between 10:15–10:30 that morning.
  • PDS Sunday is a required school day for boys in 4th–6th grade.
  • Dress for all boys is a navy blazer, white shirt, red tie, khaki pants, and dress shoes.
  • All family members are invited to attend the service, which begins at 11:00am in the Sanctuary.
  • Please have a predetermined pick-up location arranged with your son for after the service. The service ends at 12:15.

If for some reason, your son will not be in attendance, please let his homeroom teacher know in advance. Thank you for your continued cooperation and support.

Sincerely,
Mark Fruitt
Principal of the Elementary Division


 

7 Virtues of Manhood Breakfast - The Bold Adventurer

Friday, February 7 • Breakfast served at 7:00am

Breakfast: $5 for Chick-Fil-A Chicken Minis and Coffee, Orange Juice, or Milk

Sign-Up

 

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.

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.


The talented boys of PDS are putting their broadcasting skills to use to bring PDS, local, and national news to classrooms.

The staff of The Shield is comprised of boys who are in Dr. Danielle Walton's 6th-grade broadcasting elective class.

Look for new editions of The Shield on the first friday of each month.
