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.

How do you want your children to grow?

And Jesus increased in wisdom and in stature and in favor with God and man. Luke 2:52

Is it too bold for us to want our kids to grow the same way Jesus did? To grow up and be like Jesus?

What if our children were so confident in how they are loved by God that they could not help sharing that love with their friends?

That is exactly what God calls us to do, to raise them to be just like Jesus. When Jesus walked on earth, He was completely God. He was also completely a man and had to grow as a man.

So what does it mean to grow in wisdom, stature, and favor? Let’s look at their everyday definitions and at how God defines these three critical areas of development.

Happy Summer to everyone!

It’s that time of year to talk AfterCare registration. We need to know if your son is going to be with us this year!


Here are a few more details about paying for your son’s lunch.

The EZ School App accepts Credit and Debit Cards only.

Options:

  • Add money to your son’s account when ordering your meals.
  • Add money to your account without ordering meals. You can order the meals at a later time.
  • Or you can order meals and add additional money for unanticipated items your son may want.

To add money to your account without ordering a meal, click on the Save/Pay button at the bottom of the menu and it will ask you if you want to add money.

The credit card company (not PDS or Piccadilly) charges a small credit card fee per transaction (i.e. each time you pay for ordered meals or add money to your account).

The fee is 2.9% of the total amount you have ordered plus any money you have added to the account + a 30 cent flat fee.

Example:

Number of Meals Ordered for August 12
Number of Meals Ordered for September 18
Total Meals Ordered 30
   
Cost per Meal $6.16
Total $184.8
   
Credit Card Fee Percentage 2.9%
Percentage Credit Card Fee 5.3592
Flat Credit Card Fee $0.3
   
Total Amount Charge to Card $190.4592

If you ordered lunch every day for your son and you were able to do that in 4 transactions, your total credit card fee would be only about $30 for the year.

There is a minimum credit card fee of $1.95, so to minimize the fee order as infrequently as you can and preferably over $50 at a time.
