Thursday, December 16th is a half-day for all students. First graders will be dismissed at 11:15am. 2nd graders will be dismissed at 11:20. 3rd–6th graders will be dismissed at 11:30am. After-School Care is available.
On Thursday, December 16th at 6:30pm, the PDS Christmas Pageant for boys in grades 1–6 will be held in the sanctuary. The boys should report to their homerooms at 5:45pm on Thursday evening.
Boys in grades 1–5 should be dressed in white, long-sleeved dress shirts and khaki pants. The attire for the 6th-grade boys is based on their part in the program and will be sent in a separate email.
The boys will wear masks before and after the performance, but they will not be required to wear a mask while performing. If you would like your son to wear his mask during the performance, please communicate this with him.
Otherwise, we will follow the mask policy for Second Presbyterian Church.
This event will be streamed live on the website for friends and family members who are unable to physically attend.
After the program, the boys will return to their homerooms. A parent must pick up each boy in the classroom. If someone other than a parent will pick up your son, you must notify the teacher in advance. We will not release a boy to an older sibling.
Because it may be difficult for young children to listen to the program, a nursery will be provided for children under the age of four. You must make reservations for the nursery via the PDS website.
The deadline for making a reservation for the nursery is Monday, December 13th at 4:00 pm.
We also request that all children attending the program remain seated in the pews with their parents for safety reasons.
Friday, December 17th is also a half-day for all students. Christmas parties in the Elementary Division will be held that morning. After-School Care is not available on Friday.
Classes resume on Monday, January 3rd.
