Dear 4th & 5th Grade Parents,
Summer is almost here! I am sure this is a phrase you have heard a few times lately. It has been a GREAT year with your sons!
Below are the logistical matters for the last few days of school.
Wednesday, May 22nd :
- Class parties
Thursday, May 23rd :
- Boys arrive at 8:30 a.m. (Early room will start at the normal time on Thursday and Friday).
- Class Day begins at 9:00 a.m. (Regular PDS dress code).
- Dismissal will be at 11:30 a.m. (Regular carpool).
Friday, May 24th :
- Boys arrive at 8:30 a.m. (Dressed in navy blazer, white shirt, tie, khaki pants).
- Graduation lasts from 9:00 – 10:15 a.m.
All parents are more than welcome to attend graduation and see their sons sing. If you are not attending, please have a designated place to pick-up your son. Graduation day is considered a regular school day. Attendance will be taken and noted. We need all 4th & 5th grade boys in attendance in the choir loft as we honor our 2019 graduating class. If for some reason your son will not be able to attend, please contact his homeroom teacher.
I hope everyone has a restful and exciting summer!
Summer Learning for 1st-5th Grades Featured
Today, every boy in 1st – 5th grade received a red folder containing his required summer reading and math assignments.
The folders contain all the information your son will need in order to complete his required summer work. Just as last year, all required math assignments are contained within the red folder. If you would like for your son to have additional math practice, he may login to Dreambox (rising 2nd–4th) or IXL (rising 2nd–6th) using his username and password found on the front pocket of the folder.
The school will be open at scheduled times this summer for students to take AR tests. The schedule can be found on the same inside pocket of the red folder.
On the first day of school in August, your son will need to return his completed assignments in the red folder.

For 1st–6th Grades
In an effort to help you with purchasing your son’s required summer reading, we are partnering with Novel and having an online book fair from Monday, April 29 through May 3 at noon.
Please click on the link and choose your son’s rising grade for the required summer reading title(s) and continue through the ordering process.
The books will be sent home with the boys before the end of school. Novel will donate a percentage of the sales to PDS for the PDS Library. (This is in lieu of having the summer reading book fair at Field Day.)
