Our 6th-grade Crusader basketball team won the middle school championship game last night at St. Mary's!
Thanks to all the boys who came out to support the team!
It was an exciting finale to the Lee Burns' era Student/Faculty games at PDS. With the game on the line, Headmaster Burns stepped to the line for a chance at two free-throws to clinch the game for the faculty. What happened next? Watch and see:
Over Christmas Break our 6th-Grade Crusader basketball team won the Memphis Athletic Ministries (MAM) basketball tournament with wins over Lausanne, Germantown, and Fellowship Christian Academy!
Way to go, Crusaders!
Coach Albertine asked 5th grade Crusader football players to write down what they wanted to be said about them. Here are some responses:— Ross Spain (@rspain5) August 9, 2013
A humble football player who does not brag or boast. #pdsmem— Ross Spain (@rspain5) August 9, 2013
All fourth, fifth, and sixth graders are eligible to participate in the year-round, after-school intramural program. Tackle football is offered in the fall, basketball in the winter, and soccer in the spring.
We encourage as much participation as possible. All participants will be on a team, and all will play in each contest, provided they attend the practice sessions during the week. The school will provide the coaching. The parents are requested to provide for their sons any necessary special equipment. The school asks that only high quality, safe equipment be purchased. Call the Athletic Director if you have any questions concerning the purchasing of this equipment.
Students participating in the after-school athletic program must have a physical examination annually. A physician’s statement that a boy is physically fit for participation in our after-school program is required to be in the student’s file before he will be permitted to participate. The school reserves the right to remove any boy from an athletic team when it deems such removal is in the best interest of the boy or school. The ultimate decision to suspend from after-school athletics rests with the Elementary Division Principal.
Any 5th or 6th grade boy with an average of D or F in a core subject will not be allowed to participate in intramural or Crusader sports until that grade has improved. The decision to resume participation rests with the Elementary Division Principal.
A student must have been in class at least three hours of the school day in order to participate in athletics on the same day.
Parents, guardians and other family members/friends attending games must behave in a respectful manner consistent with the school’s values. This includes, but is not limited to, not booing, yelling or directing negative comments at any player, coach or referee/umpire.
