“Summertime is always the best of what might be.” – Charles Bowden

If you’re looking for the perfect way to spend your summer, you have found it! PDS has something for everyone from sports to technology, arts to recreation, and adventure to education. Our goal is to create a fun atmosphere in which campers feel confident and excited to develop their current interests and explore new ones! We can’t wait to spend our summer with you!

For more information, contact the Assistant Director of Summer Programs: Lyssa Fisackerly at 901.842.4609 or lfisackerly@pdsmemphis.org.

Our Seventieth Commencement program will be streamed live on the website beginning at 9:00am on Friday, May 24, 2019.

Dear Parents,

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.

Enjoy summer!

Laura Glenn
Head of Elementary

“‘I prayed for this child, and the LORD has granted me what I asked of him. So now I give him to the LORD. For his whole life he will be given over to the LORD.’ And he worshiped the LORD there.”
1 Samuel 1:27–28 (NIV)

“The only thing that will make growing up psychologically safe for our sons is for them to know that we value them and that we love them, and that we have every confidence that they will grow naturally into good men.”
Raising Cain: Protecting the Emotional Life of Boys

I am a boy mom; I have three of them. Even now that I also have a daughter, I still consider myself pretty much a boy mom. And since the day my oldest was born 12 years ago, I have known in my core that there is something immeasurable about the power of a strong mother-son bond. In fact, a strong mother-son bond is now measurably found to improve brain growth in the areas of memory and learning, to decrease levels of depression, to increase self-esteem, and to help boys build empathy and a high level of emotional intelligence. This is a powerful and beautiful bond meant to facilitate our precious boys to become kind, strong, and godly men. So we know the bond is there. We know the bond is important.

Here are four ways my kids advised me to help make the irreplaceable mother-son bond stronger.
