Thank you! I am so thankful for the PDS community and as a faculty and staff we have been trying to let you know how very much you are appreciated.

Our school would not exist without the generous support of generations of PDS graduates and their families. In this issue, we are thanking and celebrating many who have given to our school. On behalf of a grateful student body and faculty, thank you for all you have done to help PDS thrive.

As a school, we are excited to welcome two new strategic partners to the Memphis community. Pete Sanders recently began his tenure at Memphis University School. Our strong partnership with MUS has only been strengthened during the short time Pete has been onsite. We know that the vast majority of our students matriculate to seventh grade at MUS, and in recent years we have made certain they are ready for the next step in their education through a solid partnership.

George Robertson is the new senior pastor at Second Presbyterian Church. We are excited for his experience and vision for Christian education. He brings a wealth of knowledge and an eagerness to support PDS. There is no more important partnership for PDS than 2PC, and we are looking forward to this next chapter with eager anticipation.

Once again, thank you for your continued interest and support. May God continue to bless PDS.

Steve Hancock
Head of School
