Meeting Minutes Available from PCDS Alum Brian Snyder ’01: Distracted Driving can Change Your Life and Countless Others

On Wednesday, November 15, Brian Snyder discussed the impact of distracted driving. Brian also plans to present this information to the Upper School students on Monday, November 20. If you were unable to attend the presentation, please review the meeting minutes with tips on how we can ensure that our children do not pick up this dangerous, prevalent habit. For those with Upper School students, the meeting minutes will give you the same information that your students will receive on Monday to foster discussions at home to end distracted driving.

Annual Fund 2017-18 Honor Roll

Is your family's name on the Annual Fund Honor Roll list? If not, give your charitable, tax-deductible gift to our school today and make a difference for all students and teachers at PCDS. Participation is key, and any amount is greatly appreciated. Give today at www.pcds.org/give.

Tax Credit 2017

Along with giving your tax-deductible Annual Fund gift, we ask all PCDS families to redirect their AZ state taxes to our foundation, AISSF. This is a no-cost contribution that directly benefits PCDS students with need-based scholarships -- that's nearly 1 in 4 students on campus. Please help by redirecting your tax dollars -- and if you contribute by Dec. 31 you can also write it off as a tax-deductible donation. Click here to contribute.
P.S. Did you know that any C or S corporation can redirect corporate tax dollars to benefit PCDS students and receive a dollar-for-dollar credit as well? Click here for more information.
