Need to lookup another parent’s phone number or email address. You can always do that via the website’s Student Directory, but there’s an even faster way to access this information on the go.


The PDS Birthday Book Club has served for more than twenty years as a way to honor your son on his birthday. It has strengthened our library tremendously. Thousands of books have been added to the library because of this wonderful program.

Boys enrolled in the club are given the opportunity to be the first to check out the new books chosen in their names. Shown in the front of the book is a special plate with the boy’s name and birthday. If you would like to place a book in the library in honor or memory of someone, it can be handled on this form, as well. This is a great way to remember teachers at Christmas or at the end of the year.

We request a minimum donation of $15.00 that should be paid in advance. Please fill out the form below and return it to the PDS Library with a check made payable to the PDS Birthday Book Club. Since this is a contribution, your gift is tax-deductible. For more information, contact Brooke Clement at 842-4641.

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
