Each PDS sixth grader planned and conducted science experiments for our students. They taught us about magnetic fields, static electricity, density of materials, chemical reactions, motors and gears, aerodynamics, center of gravity, the atmosphere, properties & matter, and battery alternatives. We learned so much and had so much fun! We are proud of our sixth grade scientist!
PDS makes American history come alive for our fifth and sixth grade students. Why do we study history? What part does God play in history? These were two of the questions we started the year discussing. The students jumped into the 21st century by learning how technology and the events in this century have shaped the world they live in. Next, we studied the Gulf War and the war in Afghanistan. Ty Jenkins, a father of PDS fifth-grader Delilah Jenkins, came and told about his time in Afghanistan. Thank you Mr. Jenkins for sharing your time with us!
Second graders have been busy learning about our great state of Mississippi as well as mammals around the world. They recently completed two poster projects to show all they have learned. We are so proud of their eagerness to learn!!
We are always so proud of our students in all their accomplishments!! Congratulations to these exceptional students for receiving character honor roll, principal's list and headmaster's list for the first nine weeks! Keep up the good work!

Mr. & Mrs. Gilroy Chow came to PDS to talk to our students about America's race to be the first in space. This is part of the current topics they are studying in social studies. We were so amazed at how God uses someone from the Delta to be part of putting the first man on the moon. He inspired us to see God uses people even from our town to do big things for His glory. Thank you Mr. & Mrs, Chow!!
