All parents have been subscribed to the 2 main lists we use to communicate:
|A grade-level "Emergencies and Updates" list||Used sparingly for major news, weather-related information, etc.|
|A class-level “News” list||Used for The weekly PDS Express newsletter, the weekly newsletter from your son’s teacher, and any important information from the classroom during the week|
If you would like to opt-out of either of these lists, follow the Unsubscribe link at the bottom of any email you receive from the school.
1st–6th grades also have an optional homework email. To sign-up for homework emails, visit the Communication Preferences page.

The Parents’ Association seeks to provide support to the school through volunteer assistance and service. Each year, the Parents’ Association works closely with the administration to assist the school.
