Paging PDS: My Name My Story is Making its Mark

This week’s “Paging PDS” column is by Devika Kumar ’16 and discusses My Name My Story, an organization dedicated to encouraging empathy in the youth today. Ms. Kumar was inspired by the 15-year-old founder of the organization, Amit Dodani, remarking “Never had I seen an organization with such a simple yet relatable message: everyone has an important story to share, and sharing that story can change someone’s life.” So, she set up MNMS@PDS to inspire empathy and awareness in the Princeton Day School community.  Through book drives, a “Sandy Service Day”, letter writing, and bake sales, MNMS@PDS has managed to make a strong impact in a short amount of time. “Although MNMS@PDS was created only last year, we have managed to make a permanent mark in our community and will continue to spread our message in every possible way we can,” notes Ms. Devikar.

Health & Wellness Spring Fling in the Lower School, 4/17

On Thursday, April 17, Princeton Day School Lower School students will participate in a Health & Wellness Spring Fling. The morning will include an assembly with the Health Barn (www.healthbarnusa.com), where the focus will be on healthy, seasonal eating, including a salad bar tasting event with greens from the PDS Garden. This will be followed by a “Jump for Your Heart” activity where students will be jumping ropes, hoops, and lines on the Smoyer field to get their hearts pumping. This “jump-a-thon” will also raise funds to benefit the American Heart Association. Garden Coordinator Pam Flory, who helped to organize the event, noted, “The students will be both raising money for the American Heart Association and learning how much fun staying healthy can be.” Ms. Flory also mentioned that on April 23, nutritionist Dorothy Mullen will be speaking with the Lower School faculty and staff about the connections between food, mood, and behavior. This will touch on general health for all, as well as the importance of food and a child’s growing brain. Stay tuned for photos from the Health & Wellness Spring Fling!
