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.
In the past two articles we learned how to draw near to God and how to lead family devotions. In this article, I hope you will see the ultimate way for you and your family to know and respond to God’s love is through worship. Worship is not just something for us to do at church. Worshipping God is the most important thing you will do both now and for eternity.
A few days ago, we talked about how to draw near to God. As we get to know God better, we gain real wisdom, and that transforms how we raise our kids, love our spouses, do our work, and everything else. It’s an essential first step—but don’t stop there!
God also calls us to help our families seek God. Today’s post will focus on one way to help our families seek God—by leading a simple family devotion time. This is important because it helps us know who God is and shows us that his Word is so relevant to everyday life.
“Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.”
On Tuesday and Wednesday, October 3 and 4, the elementary division held the 2nd Annual Fall Breakaway days event. Boys explored science, technology, engineering, art, and math projects through the lens of Leonardo da Vinci.
