imageFaithful Follower Breakfast - Friday, April 14

For Grades: 1st Grade 2nd Grade 3rd Grade 4th Grade 5th Grade 6th Grade

Our Virtue breakfasts help boys learn more about what it means to be a man while spending time with an adult that is teaching them about manhood. So, we are hosting a monthly breakfast focusing on the 7 Virtues of Manhood at school.

Our 7 Virtues of Manhood Breakfasts are for elementary grade boys (1-6) and their adult hosts.

Because of the nature of this breakfast, each boy must have an adult host in order to attend. If one adult is going to be hosting multiple boys, please enter them as part of a group registration by adding additional registrations to the cart, even if that person has already registered with another boy.

Meal Options

Breakfast: $5 for Chick-Fil-A Chicken Minis and Coffee, Orange Juice, or Milk

Steps for Re-Enrollment for 2023-2024 - Due February 1


Dear Parents:

We are so thankful for each and every PDS boy and his family. Thank you for making the investment in your son and this amazing school. Our school is focused on helping build boys into men with our solid foundation of Christian values and mind-opening academics. These formative elementary years truly do set the future trajectory of a boy’s life.

Re-enrollment for the 2023–2024 school year is here. On January 18, all families whose account balances with the school are current received an email that contains the link to re-enroll their son(s). If a family has a balance, the re-enrollment contract(s) will be held until the balance is paid.

Below are the instructions that will be emailed along with the link to re-enroll.

  1. Click on the link at the end of the notification email sent on January 18 to enroll your son(s) for 2023–2024. The subject of the email is “Presbyterian Day School: Enrollment Contract.”
  2. Please complete all PDS re-enrollment information carefully and accurately.
  3. For families with two separate households, note that both households will need to complete an enrollment contract.

Remember, your son is not enrolled until PDS receives a signed contract by both parents and a $500 tuition deposit. Contracts and deposits are due by February 1, 2023.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to reach out to me at 901–842–4695 or lkelley@pdsmemphis.org.
