Kimbo Slice

Kevin Ferguson, also known as Kimbo Slice, was born in the Bahamas on February 8, 1974 until his death on June 6, 2016, and was a mixed martial artist. He was an undefeated boxer and an actor; he became famous for his mutual-combat-street fights which were spread across the internet.

Kimbo Slice left the underground street fighting scene and signed a professional contract with EliteXC in 2007. He competed in The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights, where he lost his first fight to series winner Roy Nelson. In his UFC debut, he fought Houston Alexander and won in The Ultimate Fighter: Heavyweights finale.

From January 2015 until his death in June, Kimbo Slice was under a contract with Bellator MMA.

R.I.P. You were one of the best fighters around. Kimbo Slice, you will be missed.

2016 Graduation

Sadly, graduation is for seniors only, as they receive their diplomas leaving their younger friends…behind. But enthusiastically, our early grad seniors flock back for the grand ceremony, diplomas, and celebrations.

There are so many ceremonies throughout San Diego county this time of year—and just like the spring scattering of purple Jacaranda blossoms—the thrown-graduations caps will joyfully drift downwards announcing the end of our seniors’ youthful spring, as they commence the summer of their adult lives. Congratulations to all the seniors for their hard work during their four lengthy years of high school.

Kearny high schools graduation is on the Summer Solstice: the last day of school: June 21st. The ceremony begins at 5:00, and there is not an official set ending time.

Congrats to all the seniors who made it to the end and plan on carrying their educational journey into college.

Powder Puff

Powder Puff is a team sport where girls play football against other girls, and just like the regular male sport, but in this case they did not have padding, so no tackling was allowed. This is why the girls played flag football, so no one would get hurt.

The Junior girls competed against the Senior girls. They played on Thursday, May 26. The event was held on the field, and it started right after school and ended at about 5:30 pm.

Congrats to the Seniors for playing well and walking away with the win at the end. The seniors scored twice and the Juniors scored one time.

SBAC Testing

SBAC testing is only for Juniors, and it starts on Monday, May 23rd through Thursday, May 26th.

While Juniors are testing, Freshmen, Sophomores, and Seniors will be doing something different each day during the testing period that last from 9:40 – 12:10. On Thursday the testing period will be from 9:35 to 12:30 to give students more time to write essays.

Instead of Kearny Students having four periods, students will have five.

That week the schedule will be different; the periods will be shorter than they usually are except for second period because that is when testing starts. Our usual hour and a half periods will be 50, except fourth period which will be 45 minutes. On the last day of testing first and fourth period will be 45 minutes, and second and third will be 40 minutes.

Kearny Track

This Friday, the 13th, there will be a track meet at Mission Bay High School. Kearny Varsity Track Team will be competing against Mission Bay for the Pre-CIFs to decide who will be the league champions. The event will be held from 3:30 to about 5:00 p.m. Kearny High’s varsity track runners will leave at 1:00 p.m to go to Mission Bay to practice and warm up before the track meet begins.

So come out this Thursday and support Kearny Komets as they run and compete against San Diego High.
