Olympian Makes Impact As Teacher

Profile

• Peninsula Heritage school teacher makes physical education a priority. Students at Peninsula Heritage School (PHS) are especially excited as they returned to school after Spring Break. Why? The “Survivor” unit begins in Mrs. Nygaard’s fourth, fifth, and sixth grade physical education classes. This exciting and challenging experience is a favorite at PHS, prompting many students and even alumni to return in summer for the “Survivor Summer Camp.” Kim Nygaard is the creator of this highly acclaimed program – she literally wrote the book on it – it’s entitled Survivor…PE Style! She has also shared this program with fellow physical education teachers at workshops for independent

schools in California and across the country via www.pelinks4u.com. “I really like Survivor,” said fifth grader Aaron. “Mrs. Nygaard selects the teams so there’s kids from different grades

and all types of talents. We all try to have good sportsmanship and yell for each other, so everyone tries harder and runs faster. There’s also puzzles and things like that, so each kid can help the team win,” he said. “As a teacher here at Peninsula Heritage School for the majority of my career, I recognize that each child has special talents to offer,” Nygaard said. “And for me, what better way to work than making a positive difference with children through PLAY!” A silver medalist in the Olympic exhibition of women’s dragon boat racing, Nygaard is also a Level 2 archery instructor, a three-time world champion in outrigger canoe racing, and a first-place finisher in the 10-mile women’s ocean swim race. In 2013 she was voted by her colleagues as Peninsula Heritage’s Educator of the Year.

2017 Fall Soccer Registration NOW OPEN!!! See www.ayso10.com

Much like the other innovative programs at Heritage School, this dedicated teacher/athlete couples her experience in sports and fitness with an ever-present flair for innovation. She’s designed and implemented numerous games and events that enable each child to shine. From the Mini-Winter Olympics to the Iditarod Race to the school’s annual Field Day, students learn how to work well with others as a team while individually excelling. Monthly Cross-Country Runs and the daily Walking Club are additional ways she encourages Heritage students from kindergarten through eighth grade to enjoy the life-long benefits of physical fitness. “And…” said Nygaard with a smile, “at Peninsula Heritage’s Survivor, no child is ever thrown off the island!” — email reports

PEN Newspaper Honored Journalism • The Peninsula High student newspaper "The Pen" is recognized nationally as one of the best.

By Nina Li The first newspapers were published in the 1600s, and has since been a prominent source of information for people all over the world. In the local aspect, high school journalism has become a timeless activity in which students can participate. Peninsula’s school newspaper, The Pen, has won many awards over the past years and recently obtained the Gold Crown Award, one of the highest honors in scholastic journalism, given by Columbia University. This award is given to publications that were approved by a panel of invited judges who work together to review each paper. The publications are judged by their excellence in design, concept, coverage, photography and writing. The Columbia Scholastic Press Association (CSPA) is determined to unite student journalists and faculty advisors at schools through conferences and more. Around 1,100 newspapers, magazines and yearbooks, including digital publications, from schools across the nation entered for a chance to win the Gold Crown Award. The Pen was one of the six winners. The award was given for the newspapers produced from the school year of 2015-2016, with Lauren Lee, Tunika Onnekikami and Noah Werksman as the Editors-in-Chief (EIC) and Jaymee Johnson as the faculty advisor. The staff included Annie Benedict, Marine Fujisawa, Zoe Willoughby, Esther Chu, Phoebe Borsum,  Amani Jalota and Stella Yoo as editors. The writers included Joe Foard, Nile Minn, Chris Chien, Alison Kim, Anne Lee, Nina Li, Saffy Laurio, Emily McGinn, Jordan Chang, Zain Riaz and Adrian Tai. Jackie Uy, Jessica Nye and Temishi Onnekikami were the graphics team and Isabelle Wang in advertisements. “Being in newspaper was to have a family,” Onnekikami said. “We were all in the struggle together because, for the most part, everyone cared about

Publisher’s Note (crazy talk)

They Still Call it "Paste-Up" . . . The Peninsula High journalism department celebrates its Gold Crown Award for publishing the campus newspaper The Pen. the publication and how it looked and read. Plus, it was pretty much always a great time with everyone.” Therre are many steps in creating an issue of the paper. When one issue is done and the next issue is coming up, the students hold a round of “storyboard” meetings, at which the editors and writers pitch topic ideas for all sections to the EICs. These sections include News, Sports, Opinion, Focus and Student Life. Then the topics are approved, and the editors assign each of their writers an article one and an article two. When the writers turn in their articles, the editors may revise them before final edits are made. The edited articles are turned into the EIC’s for final edits and a grade. During that time, the editors make graphic requests for their layouts and begin their electronic layout on InDesign. On paste-up day, everyone from newspaper stays after school to finalize most of the paper. The editors and EIC’s have a post paste-up, which is similar to paste-up but only editors attend. That is the day where everything is set and ready to be printed. “[The EIC’s] were so happy to receive the Crown Award,” Onnekikami said.“ Lauren and I especially were thrilled. I remember exchanging texts with her, like ‘We got a Gold Award!’ It is really an honor, but it is always funny that the

Editorial and Advertising deadline is 6 p.m. Monday the week of publication. PV PEN Panorama is published every two weeks. Our next edition is out May 13.

EIC’s of that year’s winning publication and staff are already starting college, so we never really see the award unless we visit later.” The job of the editors-in-chief is to ensure that the paper runs as smoothly as possible and oversee all the aspect of the paper from writing and design to advertisements. They reread the articles over and over to make sure that the article is reaching its fullest potential. If need be, they suggest additional or different sources and ask for rewrites up until the page was sent off for print. For design, they have the editors look up pages in other high school or professional publications for inspiration. “I really enjoy meeting and interacting with various people because it allows me to not only develop new skills but also make new friends,” writer Emily McGinn said. “ I also enjoy seeing the finished product of the paper because it always makes me feel warm inside to see how much our work each issue pays off,’ she said. The Pen newspaper has won many other awards in the past and new editors and writers continue to work to achieve more honors. “I think what the judges saw was the effort we all put in,” Uy said. “The paper itself was unified in terms of content and style. We were a small staff, people are becoming less engaged with print media. But we all worked that much harder, stayed up that much later, took harsh criticisms and turned them into something meaningful.”

So, it was about 10 years ago at this time in the month of April that the premier edition of PVP-Youth Sports News was published. A few years later the name was changed to PANORAMA or The Panorama, as the high school kids call it. Ten years and 203 editions. That’s a lot of banner headlines and captions written on deadline, the last minute before publication. Not to mention the old Big Daddy Nikon camera guy claims to have taken a bunch of photos during that time. You should check out the photo galleries and see how many pictures he’s taken. Nevertheless, I’ve limited the space here for me to write about this particular occasion because there are too many avenues and angles I could write about concerning the last 10 years. There are many people to thank for the paper’s success. There’s Mom and Dad and sister Sue. And three boys named Demerjian who basically saved my life. There are a lot more people to thank. Just check out some of the names in the staff box to see a few. That staff box sure has changed over the 10 years. It’s gotten bigger and bigger, and I expect it grow again next year. There are a lot more people involved with this operation than when we first started. We have the print publication, the various websites, the webcast videos and upcoming podcast network. (shh don’t tell anyone about our podcasting plans, it’s a secret.) It’s been a good 10 years. I’m still the luckiest person on the Hill. Everyone wins in Panorama and everyone gets to play. Eventually everyone will have their name in the paper. Be part of the community. Be part of what’s going on. Be part of the Panorama fun. Thank you everyone. — Tom

Sea Kings Race Past Panthers

On Track

• Peninsula’s new track a major upgrade for the entire Peninsula running community.

By Jenna McFarland Palos Verdes High School track & field members loaded themselves and their meet-day supplies onto a few buses to travel a short distance to compete against their crosstown rivals, Peninsula High School, on Wednesday, April 19. Roughly a year ago, Peninsula’s track was under construction due to a much-needed revamp. The new track was ready by the start of the 2017 season and Peninsula athletes were able to train on it all season. The majority of Peninsula’s meets were home meets this season so the track was further broken in through some healthy competition. This recent meet against PV was the first time that the Sea Kings had seen and run on the new red track rather than the old black one. Throughout the season, PV and Peninsula athletes have raced against the other schools in the Bay League, including Redondo Union, Mira Costa, Morningside, and South Torrance. For both PV and Pen, the dual meet

was the last of their dual meets for the 2016-2017 season. Prior to the meet, Peninsula and PV honored their senior athletes with a short senior recognition ceremony. All of the seniors from Peninsula and PV were announced and given a yellow or red rose, respectively. After the senior recognition, the meet began but had a slow start due to a Peninsula injury on the last leg of the 4x100 meter relay, one of the first events. However, everyone was able to stay motivated and focused on their individual races. Athletes from both schools competed in hurdles, sprints, relays, and field events. Within all of the events there were students for both schools scoring points first, second and third place finishes. At the end of the day, Palos Verdes emerged victorious in both the varsity boys and varsity girls competition. Peninsula won in both the frosh/soph boys and girls competition. The mid-week meet took place after both schools had not competed in almost two weeks. It was a good way for athletes to finish up the dual meet season as well as re-energize themselves and direct their focus on Bay League and CIF competition.

This is a game put on by the school, specifically for seniors. As the name suggests, “Wanted” has to do with tagging people and eliminating fellow students. Senior students that were interested in participating signed up for the game and were given a popsicle stick with another student’s name on it. The goal is simple -- eliminate that person. In order to eliminate someone, there is a procedure that must be followed. This includes placing either a clothespin or a sticker (larger than a quarter) on the targeted person. Then, both students must take a photo together and submit it to the PVPHS “Wanted” Game Facebook page to provide evidence of the elimination. The victim, having been eliminated, must give their popsicle to their eliminator to pass on to their target. The game continues until there are five seniors standing.

Tag, You’re It . . .

Someone has been tagged for elimination and will lose their popsicle. However, the game is not that simple. Students have the option of protection from elimination if they are wearing either a Fanny Pack around their waist and on top of their outermost jacket, one glove on either hand, or a hairnet. If a player is wearing any of these items, they are safe and cannot be eliminated. When asked about the game experience, a senior player, Annabelle David, said, “The Fanny Pack has become a new limb of mine.” In addition to the safety items, there are safe zones where no eliminations can take place. These zones include any classrooms, whether class is in session or not, as well as sports games and practices.

Peninsula Pineapples . . .

There’s Fanny Packs, pineapples, safe zones, popsicles, purge days, bounty lists, gloves and hairnets involved with “Wanted.” If a student leaves a classroom at any time, they are subject to elimination. Similarly with sports, any time before or after the games or practices is fair game for elimination. The school library as well as places of work are also safe zones. And just when it seemed to be complicated enough, there is more. Random days throughout the game period will be declared “Purge Days”. On these days, the normal safety items (Fanny Pack, glove, hairnet) are subject to change. Some of the new safety items introduced on Purge Days thus far have included holding the hand of the opposite gender, wearing bunny ears and holding a basket, and holding a pineapple in each hand. Finally, a Bounty List comes out every two weeks in order to stimulate gameplay. This list contains the names of students that have not made an

elimination since the last Bounty List. Players on the Bounty List can be eliminated by any other player in the game rather than just one person. Thus far, there has been more than 150 eliminations, but the game must continue. Seniors will continue to play on until there are five players left. At this point, they will be declared the winners. At the start of the game, everyone was required to pay $5 to enter. Once the game ends, that money will be split up and distributed among the winners. “Wanted” has caused smiles and laughs as well as some upset friends, but, overall, it is a memorable experience for all of the seniors involved. A current junior at Peninsula, Danielle Cherry, said “Watching the seniors run away from being eliminated can be really entertaining. I am looking forward to participating in “Wanted” my senior year.”

Only future Stanford and Ivy League graduates can understand the rules of “Wanted.”

Playoff Action Around The Corner Little League

• It’s the time of year where every game is important as teams start planning for post-season play. The same two Minors Division teams, the Silver Spur Cardinals and the Rolling Hills Tigers, are still the only undefeated teams on the Peninsula. The Rolling Hills Intermediate Cubs are looking tough to beat at 12-1-1, and no other team on the Peninsula has scored more runs so far this season. PV Little Leagues’ Nial Collins leads the Hill with 10 home runs and has a good chance at setting the home run record with a few more games left in the schedule.

A Culinary Journey

Spring Break In Spain Brings More Good Food By Alexis Ferguson Over spring break, I took an amazing trip to Spain. Our first stop was Madrid and then Barcelona where we took a great cooking class. In Italy, I also took a cooking class which got me into cooking and is still my favorite cooking class. In Spain, what I enjoyed most about the class was we went to the local market and selected all the ingredients. We learned about the market itself including the layout and clams, mussels, cuttlefish, cod, and jamon. We first made a romesco sauce with tomatoes, garlic, nyora peppers, almonds, hazelnuts, olive oil, sherry vinegar, salt, and pepper. We served the sauce over roasted vegetables. The sauce is like a pesto with tomatoes. Next, we made a Spanish Catalan style flatbread with confit cod.

Click Photo Galleries about all the produce sold there. The market sold fresh seafood, spices, juices, olive oils, meats, and a variety of sweets. We learned about Iberico jamon which comes from a pig and is sliced super thin. The closest meat to jamon is prosciutto. The pig is a darker color than a pig we would get bacon from and the pig lives on a farm but for a few months they are free range and all they eat is acorn.

Jamon has more flavor than prosciutto and is more buttery and darker in color. Prosciutto is more popular in the states because it is less expensive and is more versatile than jamon. At the market, we purchased

The fried cod was served on top of spinach and flatbread and topped with Corinthian raisins and toasted pine nuts. We then made a seafood paella with seafood we got from the local market. The seafood paella had shrimp, cuttlefish, clams, and mussels. The dish was so fresh and we used a pan bigger than my head and one of the largest burners I have ever seen. For dessert, we made crema catalana which is like a crème brulee but with lemon and cinnamon. The cooking class was amazing and I learned so much about the culture through the food and I recommend taking a cooking class at your next destination. If you have any questions or comments about the cooking class, please contact me at culinaryjourneybyalexis@gmail.com.

Rays, Rockies Battle For First Place

Pony League

• The Rays and Rockies are playing for a first-place seed going into the playoffs. The race for first place has become a two-team race with the Rays and Rockies separating themselves from the rest of the teams going into the final weeks of the regular season schedule. The two teams do not face each other the rest of the season, but do face some tough teams in the Reds and Athletics before the regular season ends in two weeks. Only three players have been able to hit a ball over the fence this season, leaving the home run derby open to any player that hit two over the fence before the end of the season.

By Katie Hageman Coachella is indisputably one of the most well-known music festivals in the country, with its reputation and popularity growing with every passing year. With more than a hundred artists, and genres ranging from indie to pop to rock to rap to EDM, the event draws crowds from far and wide. Beginning in 1999, in Indio Valley, the three-day festival has grown more popular every year. Just this year, the festival added 20 acres to its more than 70 acres and increased its weekend attendance from 99,000 people to 125,000.

Coachella Made For All Music Fans

. . . Continued from Page 24

alternative rock and dance music, the event has shifted to the mainstream as its size, prestige and reputation has grown. Although more mainstream artists have performed at Coachella in recent years, there is still a wide variety of artists, with some unexpectedly amazing. This year, Hans Zimmer played at Coachella, after previously doing primarily movie soundtracks such as Star Wars and The Dark Knight. The crowd went wild. In addition to the music, Coachella has a huge number of art exhibits and sculptures each year that promote upand-coming artists. This year, in addition to its more than seven stages for music, Coachella included the Antarctic Tent, which allowed patrons an escape from the scorching heat into an air conditioned virtual reality. With venues ranging from the primarily EDM and Sahara Tent, to the Coachella Stage, to the Outdoor Stage and the DJ Dance tent, called the DoLab, Coachella really has it all. If you can stand the scorching 100 degree temperatures, the 100,000 person crowds, lingering dehydration, and long hours on your feet walking at least 10 miles a day around the festival grounds, then Coachella is the place for you. The wide range of music, huge art exhibits and worldwide reputation, Coachella has made it ideal for festival lovers, a place where unforgettable memories are made and intense nostalgia hangs on after departure.
