Hey Grizzlies, are you ready to dodge, duck, dip, dive and . . . dodge? PKMS is sponsoring a dodgeball tournament during homeroom during the month of May. Get your teams of 5 together and grab an entry form from Mr. Meng in room 809, Mr. Legg in room 606, or the concession stand.  Matches will be played during homeroom (sometime in May) and will be streamed via Grizzly TV on YouTube for classroom viewing. Due to social distancing protocols, only teams playing will be allowed to be in the gym. Entry fee is $25.00 per team and each team is guaranteed to play at least three matches. Entry forms are due to Mr. Meng with entry fee by Friday of this week. Since this is a fundraiser for a yet to be determined cause, homerooms are encouraged to get in on the fundraising.

Attention Marvel fans! The first Black costumed superhero in mainstream comics, T'Challa, The Black Panther, sprung from the ever-inventive mind of Jack Kirby. He first appeared in 1966's "Fantastic Four" #52, written by Stan Lee, in an adventure that introduced his homeland, Wakanda, the technologically advanced nation that is the world's biggest source of vibranium. In the MCU, T’Challa is portrayed by Chadwick Boseman, first appearing in "Captain America: Civil War” in 2016 – then in his own blockbuster “Black Panther” in 2018. The film grossed over $1.3 billion worldwide and broke numerous box office records at the time, including the highest-grossing film by a black director. It became the ninth highest-grossing film of all time, the third highest-grossing film in the U.S. and Canada, and the second highest-grossing film of 2018 – proving that Representation Matters! Sadly, Chadwick Boseman passed away in 2020 leaving MCU fans wondering what the future holds for the Black Panther legacy.

Did you know Martin Luther King, Jr.’s “I Have a Dream” speech was improvised. The speech he had prepared was more political and less historic and did not include any reference to dreams. After King delivered the line, “we are not satisfied, and we will not be satisfied until justice rolls down like waters and righteousness like a mighty stream” he pushed his speech to the side and the infamous speech we now know was improvised including the “I have a dream” refrain.

The Grizzly’s ended the season with an 11-4 record, which is the highest win percentage for a boys “B” team in school history. Congrats Boys on your record setting season. The “A” boys basketball team finished the season on a high note, as well, winning the Championship Trophy in their end of season tournament. Explosive offensive outputs by Myles Weatherspoon and Malik Lewis, outstanding shutdown defense by Darnell Hicks, Tre Williams and Jamal McCray, great rebounding and garbage clean-up by Vance Herring & James Fike, and great situational passing by Jaden Baker brought home the victory for the Grizzlies. The Grizzlies defense was so good that they held, a Grain Valley team that scored 37 points on them earlier in the season, to only 20 points in the Championship Game. It was a complete and total team effort. All basketball players will report to Coach York’s classroom for uniform check-in right after school today!! Congratulations to both teams on successful seasons!!!

Friday Announcements 1/8

Good afternoon, Grizzlies -

The boys “B” basketball team won big last night over Pioneer Ridge with a 42-27 victory. After a slow first few quarters, the grizzlies came alive in the fourth with stifling defense from Vincent Croney and James Fike. Logan Bousman and Parker Good-Moopin were monsters on the boards both grabbing clutch rebounds throughout the game. Pioneer ridge attempted a late game press, but the calm and composed passing from Jordan Peck and Andrew Hart stopped any thought of a comeback. Throughout the game Cohen Kelsey and Peyton Snow hit clutch shots to help seal a Grizzly Victory. Yesterday’s victory puts the boys on a 3-game win streak and brings them to 5-3 on the season.  

The boys “A” team lost in a close one coming back late in regulation to send the game into overtime and eventually losing a heartbreaker in double overtime!

The Grizzlies will be back in action again on Wednesday night at home against Campbell. Good Luck Grizzlies!!!     

The Girls Basketball team played Pioneer Ridge on Thursday night.  The “A” team was led by Akyla Loyd’s 21 points and won 41-19.  This was their best defensive game of the season.  The “B” girls did not fair as well but gave a strong second half performance to build on for next week.  The Grizzlies are back in action on Wednesday at Campbell!

Remember those library books you checked out back in 2020?  Please remember to bring them back soon.  All library books from first semester should be turned in or renewed as soon as possible.  See Mrs. Jones in the library with questions.
