At PDS, we believe Thanksgiving should be more than just a holiday. The Bible instructs us in 1 Thessalonians to give thanks in all circumstances. We want our boys to demonstrate thankful living on a daily basis. Building habits take time, motivation, and accountability.

This November we are incorporating all three elements into a 21-day ThanksLiving Challenge. Beginning November 2, we are asking first through sixth-grade boys to reflect and respond to the question, “How did you show thankfulness today?” We want our boys to understand that living a thankful life is much more than just a mindset…it’s also demonstrated through everyday actions.

Boys can demonstrate thankful living at home, at school, and in our community by saying thank you, writing thank you notes, praying for one another, and serving one another. Get creative! We can’t wait to see and hear about your acts of thankfulness.

21-Day ThanksLiving Challenge:

  1. Show thankfulness daily.
  2. Reflect and respond each day using the Be Thankful notepad.
  3. Bring your reflection note to school daily and post it in the main lobby.
  4. We encourage parents to share ways their son demonstrates thankfulness using #pdsThanksLiving on Twitter, Instagram, or Facebook. Follow the hashtag on social media to see how our boys are living thankful lives! We will be posting as well.
  5. Enjoy a dress-down day on November 26 to celebrate thankful hearts!

Be Thankful.

At PDS we believe that it is the responsibility of each boy to arrive at school prepared for the school day. Because we want our boys to learn how to be responsible, we ask that parents of boys in grades 1–6 not deliver forgotten items such as homework, signed papers, school supplies, library books, backpacks, etc. to school once the school day has started. Interrupting classroom instruction to deliver items during the school day is disruptive to the learning process of all boys.

We do, of course, know that boys might from time to time forget an item. Forgotten items will not stop a boy from learning and participating in class during the day. If it is absolutely necessary that a boy must have a forgotten item in order to participate in class, the teacher will allow the boy to call home. Boys may not call home to ask that an item be delivered to school without permission from the teacher.

Any student who forgets his lunch may purchase lunch in the cafeteria. If a parent wants to deliver a forgotten lunch to school, he/she may drop the lunch at the main desk. The boy will be allowed to pick up the forgotten lunch on his way to the cafeteria.

If a student forgets sports equipment for after school athletics or supplies for an after school music lesson or enrichment class, parents may also deliver those supplies to the main desk. Students will be allowed to pick up those items after dismissal.
