Listen & Follow: Jesus Is Speaking

Parents, how is it going? Most of us have now been with our kids all day, every day, for almost a month. So, how is it going? Are you exhausted with reminding your children to listen to you and do what you say?

If you’re like a lot of parents, you have a growing appreciation for the hard work teachers do every day in the classroom and are continuing to do in new ways from home. And, I can assure you that they are thankful for what you’re now doing to help your children continue to learn. But, there is something else that’s important for all of us to learn in these unprecedented times as we seek to love and raise our kids the best we can.

Suggestions for Online Learning

PDS understands that a shift to distance learning will require our boys and families to make adjustments. At the Hancock Home, we have been doing distance learning for the past three years. Some of you may know that my son, Clay, is an accomplished violinist and a traditional “bricks and mortar” school was not the best plan for him. He started online learning after his Freshman year of high school to allow for travel and practice. Now, he is heading towards graduation from online high school. We have experienced and adjusted a lot through these past years and you can click here to see some of the things we have learned that might help you during this time.

Dear PDS parents,

Thank you for the love and patience you have shown during this unique time. We have been working at PDS over the past several days as we ready the school for the start of distance learning. I hope this letter will answer many of the questions you might have moving forward.

Heart Inputs = Noble Outputs

“But the noble make many plans, and by noble deeds they stand.” - Isaiah 32:8

We all want our children to be noble and make a positive impact on the world and those around them. To do this we must go beyond their current behavior and their minds—we must reach their hearts.

Headmaster Hancock says: "The show must go on!"

Summer Camps 2020: Every Kid, Every Week!

PDS Summer Camps are available for 11 weeks this summer from May 26th-August 7th. We are excited to debut our expanded Camp PDS option, as well as a new program: Crusader Care.

Either Camp PDS or Crusader Care is available all 11 weeks of summer, but that’s not all! We have dozens of great enrichment camps that you can pair up with these camps.

Planning for multiple weeks of camp? Use our Plan Your Summer tool to quickly see just the camps available for your child only on the weeks you need! After you have settled on the camps for each week you can add them to your cart all at once! Please register each child individually.

Extended Care is also provided beginning at 7:30am and ending at 5:30pm. For campers attending enrichment offerings in both the morning and afternoon, we offer a supervised lunch period at no additional cost.

Please register each child individually. One of the changes we have made in expanding our summer program is the use of a cart feature for checking out that requires you to register each child individually. This feature allows you to register each child for all of the camps they are attending in one registration form.


For More Information

Contact the Assistant Director of Summer Programs: Lyssa Fisackerly at 901.842.4609 or lfisackerly@pdsmemphis.org.
