In most cases, these conversations are skewed to favor modern perspectives and lack an awareness of historical context.

PV High Formal Out Of This World

The Formal

• Palos Verdes High hold Winter Formal underneath the Endeavour Space Shuttle.

By Katie Hageman On Saturday, Jan. 27, Palos Verdes High School hosted its Winter Formal at the California Science Center in Los Angeles. Before the dance, many students took photos at the PV cliffs, where, because of the big crowd, parking was difficult to find as was meeting up with friends. Once at the venue, students entered the Science Center through a tunnel, where fish could be seen through glass

in all directions. Once inside, the Kelp Forest section of the Science Center was open as well as the Endeavour exhibit, which is where the dance was primarily held. The Endeavour Space Shuttle was in the center of the large room. Buffets of finger food were placed around the outside of one side of the room with several tables scattered around. On the other side of the room, students danced to a DJ’s music. Nick Thompsen, a PV senior, commented on the venue. “I had never seen the Endeavour Shuttle prior to formal night, and I was amazed by its size. The experience was definitely something different and super cool.”

Heritage Students Show Their Kindness Service

Every Kid Should Have Crayons . . . Students at Peninsula Heritage

• Heritage students take on the Great Kindness Challenge with Crayon Cellection. Peninsula Heritage students recently participated in the international Great Kindness Challenge, a week of focusing on doing kind deeds for others. The school’s signature project for this week was the Crayon Collection, a national charity initiative that repurposes gently used crayons for underserved children. With the generous donation of crayons from students, parents, and teachers, Mrs. Kim Nygaard, the school’s physical education teacher, beautifully packaged these crayons

for the children at the Head Start Center Preschool at the Learning Center on Pennsylvania Avenue in nearby Lomita. In addition to the crayons, each child’s package included a multi-colored heart-shaped crayon created by Mrs. Nygaard. The Great Kindness Challenge was a natural fit for the Peninsula Heritage students, as “Caring” is one of the school’s six Character Qualities along with “Respect,” “Attitude,” “Gratitude,” “Self-Control,” and “Perseverance.” Students shared their personal kindness experiences at the recent all-school Assembly focused on the quality of “Caring.” — email reports

TEDx Comes To Peninsula High Learning • Peninsula High student club brings TEDx speaker series to the community.

By Nina Li On Peninsula High School’s campus there are many different clubs and classes that students can join to express their opinions or showcase their interests. Now there’s one more. Peninsula’s Service Learning Leadership (SLL) has added another event that allows not only students, but members of the community and teachers to talk about whatever they are passionate about. TED Talks have always been shown to students in various classes and are used as a way to further students knowledge about a topic through the words of another individual. With that in mind, SLL teacher Heather Myrick decided to bring TEDx to Peninsula High and invite students, teachers and community members alike to audition for a spot in the event. She created a TEDx committee in SLL with nine students: Diego Sheng, Monet Shibata, Michelle Fredericks, Riley Ng, Kasey Chou, Ariana Bucur, Leslie Castro, Miho Tanaka and Katherine Cruz. Together, the committee and Myrick organized the logistics of the event and were able to narrow down the search for speakers to about five. “I enjoy TED Talks and, having learned much from them myself, was eager to bring the possibility of hosting our own event on campus,” said senior Ng. “We hope that students and community members who attend the event are inspired - be it to create a change, explore a new subject, or see the world in a different way,” said Ng. In order to bring TED onto campus, the committee had to go through a rigorous set of applications that included many questions such as: Why do you wish to host a TED Talk? What themes would you create your event off of? And other general questions referring to the people and community in this area.

The committee sent in their application, got it back, revised it, and then sent it again. This went on for a few months while exchanging emails with TED Talk and sending in new ideas until they were finally granted the license. “I remember the first time I watched a TED Talk on Youtube. I was in sixth grade,” junior Monet Shibata said. “I remember how inspired and motivated I was. Since then, I have been a huge fan of TED and what they do. I love how a talk can get me inspired and motivated while introducing me to new concepts and ideas that I’ve never thought about before,” said Shibata. Once the TED license was finally approved, the committee started to look for community members and students who were willing to speak. They held about 15 auditions for students and confirmed three adult speakers for the event. The final decision will limit the student speakers to about five. The committee was looking for speakers who had unique and engaging ideas to share that would honor TED’s mission of sharing “ideas worth spreading.” “I have always been a huge fan of TED Talks and my ultimate dream is to give one at the big, main events,” prospective speaker Samantha Liu said. “So when I saw that Pen got the opportunity to host, I immediately knew I wanted to do it. Public speaking is something I enjoy, and being in Speech and Debate has helped me further my interest. I wanted to find a way to incorporate humor into my speech while also delivering a strong and thoughtful message,” Liu said. In hosting this event, Peninsula is opening the campus to their students and the community as a whole. This will bring everyone together and inspire those in the audience to share the same passions as the speakers and learn more about the things that they do. “I am really enjoying getting to work with the incredibly creative and driven students that comprise our committee, as well as curating what we hope will be an exciting and thought-provoking event for our Peninsula community,” Ng said.

RHP History Lecture Series PV High Holds PANORAMA Winter Formal Palos Verdes Peninsula

. . . Continued from Page 2 As the evening progressed, Hagee pointed out various events and occurrences that caused many loyalists and centrists to radicalize in the name of independence. In addition to providing context to events, she also introduced the beginnings of core American principles, such as the separation of church and state. The evening concluded with events that occurred shortly before the American Revolution. The next two lectures, The First

Government: The Articles of Confederation and The Constitution: The American Miracle, will take place on February 20th and the 27th. Although each evening follows events in a chronological order, the lectures can all stand-alone without attending prior dates. There is no entrance fee, however donations are invited to support Service Learning volunteer trips for the Rolling Hills Prep Global Studies Program. ­— email reports

At Museum

. . . Continued from Page 3

Outside of the Space Shuttle room a table was set up where students could receive airbrush tattoos. Some couples, or groups of friends, chose matching tattoos, such as sunflowers or dinosaurs. Individual students chose different designs. Students chose different body parts for their temporary tattoos, from their cheek to their chest to their wrist. Inside the main entrance of the museum was a photo booth where individuals dressed up using the provided props and took photos with their friends. Julia Davis, a PV senior, spoke highly of the dance. “The Formal was a lot of fun and a great conclusion to the start of my senior year.” After the event, many students continued the tradition of ending their night with a burger or milkshake from In-n-Out Burger.

PEN Soccer Takes Hold Of Bay League Soccer • The Penisulua High soccer program has varsity boys’ and girls’ teams are competing for first place in the Bay League standings.

By Sarah Liu The Peninsula High School Panthers soccer team is out to hunt this season, dominating its competition. The girls’ varsity has a 10-1-3 season record and a league record of 4-0-1, just behind Mira Costa High. On Jan. 19, the Panthers tied Redondo Union, 1-1, and on Tuesday night topped Hill rival Palos Verdes High, 1-0, when the only goal scored was on a free kick by captain Kailey Yim. For the team, the PV game was more significant than other games, and not just because of the rivalry. “It held a little more weight because many of the people on the PV team we are friends with, which results in a friendly rivalry, and we were determined to beat them,” said freshman Rachel Yu. However, PEN’s game plan stayed the same: they stayed aggressive and

PVBA Divisions Set For Playoffs PVBA 6th Grade

The Palos Verdes Basketball Association is getting ready for playoff action.

By Timothy Niemann As the PVBA season winds down, it gets more exciting. This past weekend, in the Sixth Grade Division, five of seven games finished within 10 points, and two of which were within one. There’s only one word that can describe this season, “exciting.” Now what will the playoffs bring? South Carolina defeated Duke by one point, thanks to a shot from the key with three seconds remaining. Both of these teams are set for a run deep into the playoffs. South Carolina has come off two last-minute wins, while Duke has come off two tough losses. Don’t be surprised if you see either of these teams playing into late February. Miami suffered its first loss this season in a close, three-point loss to Indiana. This was an exciting matchup to start with, and it didn’t disappoint. Both of these teams will most likely be top seeds in the playoffs and could even face each other again in the championship. Another exciting game involved Indiana vs. California. California barely pulled off the win, 37-36, even though Indiana led by more than 10 at times in the second half. This game showed that Indiana had the grit needed to win a title, even though they couldn’t pull off a win against Cal. Almost every team in this division has a chance to win a title. As of now, there is no clear-cut favorite. Miami, Indiana, USC, South Carolina, and Duke all have the talent to win the grand prize, the championship.

That in 1995 Palos Verdes on the Net (PVNet) held standing-room-only “Meet the Internet” training workshops at the beautiful PVP Library, held the first ever Computer Art Competition with the PVP Art Center, and in 1996 opened the country’s first of a kind Technology Center right here on the Peninsula at RPV City Hall?
