Support the Annual Fund!

For nearly 75 years, Presbyterian Day School has been focused on academic excellence, Christian character development, and BOYS! These ideals are supported by The Annual Fund.

The Annual Fund reaches into every corner of campus. It impacts every boy who competes at Field Day on the newly re-turfed football field, every teacher who participates in cutting-edge professional development opportunities, and every guest who feels welcome on our campus with new and improved signage.

Will you join the faculty, families, and friends that believe in the mission, values, and traditions of PDS? You can help us keep the Happygrams flowing!

5th Grade Crusader Band

Sign-Up Now!

Calling all 5th graders! It’s time to join the PDS Crusader Band! Our band director, Mr. Terry Himebook, has met with the fifth-grade boys and invites all boys to consider joining the band this year.

Fifth-grade students involved in the PDS band will have one small-group lesson held once a week during the school day and one large-group session held after school on Thursdays each week. A strong effort is made to limit the impact on core academic classes and alternative times are offered when needed, but the boys may miss part of another special area class or PE when they have a lesson. 5th grade Crusader Band will begin the week of September 19.

The fee to participate in the beginner band for the 2022-23 school year is $250 per student. While PDS does have some school-owned instruments available for use, instrument rentals from local music stores may be necessary. We will provide guidance for this process. To read more details about band from Mr. Himebook, please click here.
