As part of their class trip to New Orleans, juniors pulled and removed invasive species of plants from Joe W. Brown Memorial Park.
During the Nov. 19-23 trip, students were immersed in a cultural exploration of the region in addition to curricular programs that support U.S. History classes.

Part of PDS's mission is to instill in its students a sense of social responsibility. The goal is to encourage students to engage in activities that teach leadership, principles of service to the community and personal responsibility.
PDS helps students develop character dispositions such as empathy, patience, integrity, humility, open-mindedness, confidence and courage, so they can understand and act on local and global issues.
