Talented Boys!

On May 1st, we held our first-ever After-School Talent Show:


Children's Author David Greenberg Visits PDS

Bowling with Mentors

Mentoring is a crucial component of our Building Boys, Making Men character education program. To celebrate the end of a great year, Fifth-grade boys and their mentors went bowling on Tuesday, May 8.


Sixth-Grade Boys and Their PK Buddies

Our boys don't just receive mentoring, they pass it on. Each year, our sixth-grade boys meet with a PK buddy throughout the year.


PDS Bands in Concert

Now in its third year under the direction of Stephanie Hancock, our Beginning Band and Crusader Bands performed in concert on April 26 and again on April 27 at an assembly for PDS students.


Congratulations to Tyler Dang for winning this year’s Motsey Hudson Speech contest with his speech titled, “The Benefits of Traveling.”

Tyler will be presenting his speech at the 6th Grade Graduation Ceremony.

Jackson Ransom’s speech, “Beyond Skin Deep,” and Andrew Tancredi’s speech titled, “My Passion for Flying,” tied for second place. Both will present their speeches during Class Day.

Follow the Read More link to watch the top 3 speeches.


David Greenberg, author of children’s books, spoke to an assembly of 4th, 5th, and 6th grade boys on Monday, April 30. You could hear a pin drop in the Fellowship Hall as Mr. Greenberg’s hour-long presentation left the entire audience wanting to hear more about his book, A Tugging String.

Mr. Greenberg’s father, Jack Greenberg, was the leading Civil Rights attorney for Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. during the 1960’s. David Greenberg stated, “I remember a young Thurgood Marshall, who later became our first black Supreme Court Justice, at our house along with other Civil Rights leaders. They had the courage to take on the bullies of their day. By extension, I ask children to take inspiration from these leaders, to take personal responsibility, to stand up to injustice and bullying."

“It was fascinating and of vital importance to hear that David Greenberg’s dad made history through his work in bringing about the march from Selma to Montgomery, Alabama.” Ihsan Omer - Sixth-grade student

In addition to the earlier presentation the SK through the 3rd grade could be heard squealing and laughing with delight during the poetry assembly with Mr. Greenberg. He kept the boys entertained with lively readings and images from his poetry books.


Congratulations to Sam Jackson-Hodum, the winner of our 10 Second Video Contest!

Sam will receive a $50 Visa gift card.
