PDS Launches Outdoor Cultural Expeditions Trip for 5th-6th Grades

This year’s PDS Outdoor trip will be a five day excursion through two of our nation’s most beautiful national parks: Yellowstone and Grand Teton. The boys will enjoy scenic views of wildlife, geysers, waterfalls, and lakes as they hike and bike their way through this camping trip in Montana and Wyoming.

imageThe True Friend - Virtue Breakfast - Friday, Sept 8

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

Hey Parents,

Crusader Café is back for another year. For those of you who do not know, Crusader Café is an opportunity for a boy to showcase his musical talents to his peers and others during lunchtime. We will be dining and entertaining everyone from the Fellowship Hall.

Below are the dates for the Crusader Café:

There are 2 requirements your son must meet in order to play at Crusader Café.

  1. He must be taking or has taken lessons. (If he is not taking or has taken lessons, he must audition for Mrs. Southerland)
  2. He must be practicing regularly.

“Practice isn’t the thing you do once you’re good. It’s the thing you do that makes you good.”

Malcolm Gladwell
