Crusader Café is back for another year! 

“My first ever performance was at Crusader Café. Now I have performed at some very popular music venues in Memphis such as Young Avenue Deli, Overton Square, and Loflin Yard. Crusader Café was an inspiration to me and the beginning of an overall successful career in drumming.” -Alex Smith

Crusader Café is held during lunchtime and is a time where a boy can showcase his musical talents to his peers and others. We will be dining and entertaining in the Fellowship Hall.

Dates for the Café

Thursday October 25
Thursday January 31
Thursday May 2

There are 2 requirements your son must meet in order to play at Crusader Café.

  1. 1. He must be taking lessons (If he is not taking lessons, he must audition for Mrs. Southerland)
    2. He must be practicing regularly “Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good.” Malcolm Gladwell Outliers

Please use the spreadsheets linked below to view available time slots (each date can have 5 boys maximum per grade signed up).

Thank you to all of our donors for supporting Presbyterian Day School this past school year!

Together, through our Annual Giving Fund, March Mania auction, and Strategic Initiatives, we raised an amazing $1,128,334 to support the boys and faculty of PDS. Thank you so much for your continued support.

These gifts have made an incredible difference at PDS. With our renewed commitment to customization, creative and critical thinking, and experiential learning, we have watched our boys grow and thrive. From our Early Childhood STEAM days to our Sixth Grade service projects, these gifts change lives at PDS. Our faculty is given the opportunity to always dream about what is best for boys.

When you support our school, you help put these dreams into action.

Thanks you donors!

Annual Giving Report 2017-2018

PDS uses an off-campus filter called Captive Portal, which your son will have to sign into once every five days. While we showed your son how to do this, we wanted you to know the process too.

When your son launches his internet (Chrome, Safari, or Firefox), a blue screen, with "Captive Portal" will appear. Skip over the two boxes for username and password. Your son will need to click the link titled, "Google Auth,” which appears towards the bottom of that screen. Once he clicks on the link, he will be prompted to enter his PDS Gmail. (Your son should have a sticker in his AB with this information. Most accounts follow the scheme: first name + first letter of last name + 3 numbers @pdsmemphis.org. Ex: charlest465@pdsmemphis.org)

The next screen will have him enter his email password. (This is his AR password, plus his PDS graduation year. 6th graders use 2019, 5th graders use 20 and 4th graders use 21. Ex: hatsky2018 or hatsky19. This password is also located on his sticker.) He will have to click "Next" two times to finish the authentication process. Once he is done, his home internet connection will work. While this process will be repeated every five days, it should only take a minute to complete.
