We have had such a great start to this school year. It's hard to believe we are half way through. Our school year began with faculty and staff gathering to focus on community. We spent time together playing and learning. One of our inservice sessions was devoted to social equality and prejudice. Led by two board members, Todd Erickson and Michael Davis, we explored multiculturalism and the potential blind-spots we may have as a faculty. The conversations were powerful and have charted the work we will continue to do this school year and beyond..
As you read this issue of the Spirit magazine, I hope you will look for themes of diversity, social justice, and academic pursuits. At PDS we are not content with resting on our past successes. We are interested in creating a school that glorifies God in all that we do. This ideal takes effort and perseverance. Our boys are the beneficiaries of this commitment, and I thank you for your investment.
