                          It’s All About the Kids
Unfortunately, in this challenging time of unprecedented budget deficits and consequent cuts
to education…we need to keep both hope and perspective.

Hope…that all the stakeholders in this situation understand that these are economic
circumstances of unprecedented proportions that require sacrifice of unprecedented
proportions. “Oh…we’ve been through this before…and it will be OK in a few years”
doesn’t play well with parents whose students are caught in the “here and now”.

EDUCATION IS NOT A REDO…sacrificing the quality of education for our students
“until this passes” is not an option. Our students still need to be prepared to compete with
their peers in 49 other states as they seek the best colleges and universities for their continued
education.

There are many families in this community that have taken 5, 10, 20 even 50% pay cuts since
2008. Some families in this community are unemployed and trying their best to stay solvent.
The effect of this economic downturn is acutely felt by all of us. Still, as parents, most of
us are willing to make the necessary financial sacrifices to fund our children’s educational
experience.

The PTA’s in PVPUSD have donated over $1.5 million to the schools this year alone. PEF has
pledged an unprecedented $2 million for this 2009-10 academic year. Boosters continue to
donate funds that ensure extracurricular programs necessary to keep our students “nationally
competitive” beyond the core curriculum. At Pen alone, the various Boosters contribute
$550,000+ to a vast array of programs.

The parent community will be asked to give MORE to support the programs at Pen next
year. We will do it no matter how hard it is financially because it is about giving our children
the educational experiences to be successful beyond high school. EDUCATION IS NOT A
REDO…there is no repeat for this or any other academic year!

Perspective… all the stakeholders involved in the education of our children need to
take a step back and realize these are unprecedented times. The chapter is not over; it can’t be
“the status quo” for now… the ending of this financial debacle is still far from over. Everyone
will need to “feel the pain” until California and this country can find their financial footing
again.
           Paw Prints                            4                                 April 2010



We are a community of parents and education professionals that need to work together to
weather this economic recession. As parents, we are grateful to the time, effort and dedication
of all the people involved in our children’s education…teachers, staff, and administrators…all
the education stakeholders.

We need you…our children need you…BUT you also need us…the parents.
We contribute MILLIONS of dollars a year to maintain the educational excellence of this
school district. From bond measures to parcel taxes we have added hundreds of dollars to
our annual tax bills to just to maintain the financial stability of this school district. We donate
additional MILLIONS each year thru PTSA, PEF and Boosters.

As a parent, I am also a stakeholder in this next academic year. I just want all the stakeholders
“at the table” to keep the perspective that this is an unprecedented financial crisis. Each
stakeholder needs to significantly “feel the pain” and not rely on the others involved to absorb
their hurt.

                             Peninsula’s Disaster Drill


On March 11, 2010 at 10:30 a.m. PVPHS had a disaster drill, it started with a lockdown to simulate
a threat on campus. All the different bell systems were tested and explained to the students (again).
Then the scenario was an earthquake, so everyone practiced to duck, cover and hold. This was
followed by a full evacuation of the school to the baseball field.

There were students and staff staged through the campus as injured or deceased. The 6 search
and rescue teams were activated, triage/first aid was set up along with the command post and
student release. The search and rescue teams were extremely professional and soon worked
through the school checking for the “trapped or injured” that were rescued, triaged and taken to first
aid which was expertly supervised by our dedicated nurse, Wendy Keller.

The Command post worked with student care to make sure that everyone on the baseball field was
accounted for and reported back to the extremely organized Operations Chief, Stephanie Scott and
her team, who made tally with the search and rescue teams of the students. All under the watchful
eye, of the well experienced Incident Command, Kelly Johnson.

Parent observers kindly volunteered their time to observe these teams in action, part of the review
system, which along with the feedback from the staff provides information on what went well and
anything that could changed to work even better. We also had some volunteers who tested the
student release to see how quickly their students could be found and released to them. Another
parent posed as a reporter and tried to get information.

The drill went exceedingly well and Pen has a great staff that are well prepared to deal with any
kind of emergency or disaster.

Many thanks to the parent volunteers: Nancy Jackson, Joanne DeArmond, Donna Segal, Lori Fan,
Carol Quan, LaWanda Zsheik, Pattie Shimotani, Cyndy Harrington, Rebecca Poon, Cecilia Sharbel
and Vallenic Light for their time and enthusiasm and especially to Stephanie Scott and the staff who
work so hard to make the campus a safe and well prepared environment.

           Freshmen, Sophomore & Junior Parents
            Needed to Chaperone Grad Nite 2010!



The Grad Nite Committee needs parents of freshmen, sophomores and juniors to help
chaperone the seniors during Grad Nite. Every year parents step up, continuing the
promise that others will step up when their students are seniors. This is a great chance to
get an idea of what happens at Grad Nite when your child becomes a senior.

Chaperones are needed because the students are not allowed to travel to Grad Nite
without a chaperone on each bus. Volunteers receive cool t-shirts and terrific food….and
coffee, too!

Volunteers are needed at the Gym on Thursday, June 10, at 7:30 p.m., after the Graduation
ceremony. Buses load at 8:15 p.m. to go to the event and return to PVPHS at 5:00 a.m. on
June 11th.

June 10 is the last day of school, so parents will not have to get their children up for school
the next day. Some people volunteer with friends – and remember the late parties of their
youth!

For more information or to volunteer, please e-mail or call Hiromi Ashmore at
hiromichan@cox.net or 310-377-4238.

                          California Scholarship Federation
California Scholarship Federation had a Successful Membership Drive and Banquet!
        Congratulations to all of the new and continuing CSF members! During the last two weeks in
 February, the CSF Board members and advisers took in 870 applications for spring 2010 membership.
 Spring 2010 membership is based upon the academic excellence achieved during the fall semester
 ending January 22, 2010. The class of 2010 has 206 Gold Sealbearers with 166 of them achieving
 Highest Honors. According to our By-Laws, seniors must have at least one of their qualifying
 semesters in their senior year. Gold Sealbearer Status requires four semesters of membership in any
 of the sophomore, junior, and senior years.

       Thank you to the CSF Board Members who worked so hard to make our membership drive a
 success! We appreciate your efforts! You are all awesome! We couldn’t do it without you.

       Immediately following the membership drive, the Class of 2011 held elections for their CSF
 Board members. The outcome for the elections is listed as follows:

 The new CSF Board for the Class of 2011 is
                   President ........................................................Saral Jalan
                   Vice-President .............................................Priscilla Perey
                   Secretary ..................................................... Sarah Simko
                   Treasurer ..................................................... Michelle Kim
                   Members At Large .................................... Benjamin Bang
                                        Monica Chen, Nicole Fischer, Alyssa Limbo
                                                               Julie Ouyang & Jessica Yu

        The annual CSF banquet will be held on April 20th at the Marriott Hotel in Torrance. All seniors
 who received Gold Sealbearer status have been invited to attend. Each senior will be introduced
 and will receive a certificate of achievement of Gold Sealbearer status, a membership pin, and gold
 cords to be worn at graduation. Each Gold Sealbearer was encouraged to apply for one of the many
 scholarships that will be given at the banquet. Please check the May PawPrints for the list fo recipients
 of the scholarships and special awards and recognition given to the CSF Sealbearers at banquet. If
 you have questions regarding the event, please contact one of the advisers. Also, if you feel that your
 senior should have received an invitation but did not, please contact the advisers IMMEDIATELY!

        One final note...If you have a student who has transferred either from or to Palos Verdes High
 School and were members of CSF, please contact advisers immediately as membership does transfer
 between schools. Actually, if your student was a member of CSF at any other California high school,
 please contact adviers so that we may obtain their records. If you recently moved to the state, we
 can offer retroactive membership to your child. Please note: the only times we offer retro-active
 membership is for grade changes or students who have moved from out of state.

         Any questions or corrections regarding the current membership list, please contact Mrs. Betsy
 Okamoto at okamotob@pvpusd.k12.ca.us.
         Thanks again for your support, it is greatly appreciated! Have a wonderful, restful, spring
 break!
 Alicia Foulk & Betsy Okamoto, Advisers

            IT’S BEEN AN EXCELLENT YEAR AT THE COSTUME CLOSET!!

Thank you to all the volunteers from your school and the many supporters of the Costume
Closet. Without you, the Costume Closet would not be what it is today. On March 19, 2010,
the PVPUSD PTAs and PTSAs received checks totaling $38,457; your PTA/PTSA received a
portion of that. Despite the economy, the Costume Closet had more rental income that ever
before, and it is our pleasure to pass our proceeds on to you. Since the early 80’s when the
Costume Closet first started giving donations to the PTA Council, the schools, and the PTA’s
and the Council have benefitted with over $500,000 to them by us.

We can always use more volunteers; please think about it. You, too, can earn $$$ for your PTA
as well as credit towards rentals.

When you see your volunteers, please give them a big thank you for earning money for your
school.

Choir
All choirs just finished performing at the Pen Café. What a success it was! Ruqayyah Abdulrahoof
said, “Pen café was a very exhilarating experience. Women’s choir sang the Locomotion. I also had my
first solo in this choir, so I was really excited.” Hannah Song, also a member of the Women’s choir
performed a duet (Battle by Colbie Callait) at the Pen café with Rachael Gonzalez. Hannah said, “We
were really nervous at first, but when we began to sing, we just felt the message of the song and did our
very best.” Man’s Doo Wop sang Viva la Vida which received a roaring applause. Women’s A Capella’s
performed “Fever” for another thunderous response. Ethan Lee said, “My favorite act was Over the
Rainbow by Pia-Marie Kawagoe, David Kim, and Stefani Fan. David used skills he learned in Mr.
Doctor’s music theory class to completely rearrange the song into a new and interesting version that
nobody had heard before. This is definitely my favorite concert and I really want to do it again.” Alyssa
Miyamoto was stage manager and thus was able to see all of the acts and she said, “There wasn’t a weak
spot in the show.” Varsity voices were particularly energetic and the audience loved them! Ethan Lee
described the Mr. Kim and Friends concert as “performances that included a broad range of music -
anything from folk to metal to pop - and it was awesome to see my math teacher perform.”

The big annual competition this year is The Heritage Festival in Chicago. Shayne Burns, from the
Advanced Women’s assemble, said she is “so excited about the Festival. We are going to meet so
many new people and hear different choirs from all over the nation. I’m confident we will win!” Sara
Grzywacz, also from the women’s assemble, said, “I’m excited about my first trip with my choir family.
I’m looking forward to performing Ubicaritas which we will sing in Latin. We also have a gospel song
Right on King Jesus that I especially enjoy because it gives us a feeling of hope.” At the Festival, the
students will also be privileged to enjoy time at the Navy Pier, walks along Magnificent Miles, visit to
Millennium Park, visits to museums, night out at Comedy Sportz and Medieval Times, and of course fun
restaurants.

Reminder: the student body will be having choir placement auditions for next year’s choir on April
13th, 14th, and 15th from 3p.m.-5p.m. in the choir room (S33). For the audition the students should
prepare a song of their choosing. Mr. Doctor will ask them to sing a portion of it without any sort of
accompaniment (ex. piano, guitar, CD track). Then he will also ask the students to match pitches that are
played on the piano. Listen for announcements at school for more information on when to sign up for an
audition time.

Dates to remember: April 6 – 11 Heritage Festival in Chicago.

The Orchestras
Our musicians had a great opportunity to attend the live rehearsal of the Los Angeles Philharmonic Orchestra
on February 26, 2010 at the Disney Hall in downtown Los Angeles. We were lucky to listen to a free concert
of the entire Beethoven Symphony No 7. What a meaningful learning experience for our students! Thanks
to the parent-chaperones.

The Philharmonic wrote to us, “This year, we are eager to hear feedback directly from your students so
that we may better serve them in the future. To that end, we have designed an online survey that students
can access at: http://www.zoomerang.com/Survey/?p=WEB22AAVNSFSNW. We would appreciate it if you
would share this website with your students and encourage them to respond.”

Student participation is voluntary and anonymous. Completing the survey should take no more than 15
minutes. We will however reward the school with the highest survey participation rate with a free Hollywood
Bowl Vouchers (good for 2 bench seats) for each returned survey. Thank you in advance for your assistance.
If you have any questions or concerns, please contact Lydia Mulkey at lmulkey@laphil.org.




A very special thanks to Sally Chae, Sean Moran, David Lee, Trevor Portiz and our director Mr. Steiner
donating several hours of their time to provide us with music during an event they had at Terranea in
February. As a result, our orchestra booster club received a check in the amount of $1000.00 from Cox
Communications. Also, thanks to the parents of Alex Chen for the unexpected and generous donation made
to our orchestra of an amount of $1000.00.

Winterguard

Winterguard placed 3rd at their last competition on February 20th at Marina High School in Huntington
Beach, with a big jump in their total score from the first competition. The show has been renamed
“Another Day in the Office”. They are now working very hard learning the final and most challenging
part of their show, where they will be tossing rifles and spinning flags while in rolling office chairs.
They’re looking forward to further improving their score at their future competitions on March 13, March
27 and Championship on April 17.

We want to recognize Tim Melott for pulling our trailer at each competition, and Mo Chang, Emily
Nguyen, Yolanda & Alan Jenkin and Mimi Tran for driving our carpools to the competitions. Also
the Gonzales’, Nomiyama’s and Carino’s provided snacks and drinks. Thank you to all the parents who
helped. We couldn’t have done it without them!

                                    JUNIOR VARSITY BOYS BASEBALL

The Junior Varsity Panthers opened their 2010 season with a thriller at Carson on March 5. Michael Green
and Matt Hezlep threw a combined 1-hitter on 7 strikeouts through 6, and the Panthers took a 1-0 lead into the
last of the 7th. After an unearned run scored, Gabe Linsky took the mound with no outs and runners on 2nd and
3rd. After a walk, a strikeout and an infield fly, Gabe fielded a soft grounder and tagged the final Colt batter
to secure a 1-1 tie as time was called. Derek Chance (2), Ted Dilts, Mickey O’Crowley and Chase Nakano
singled for the Panthers, whose lone run came in the 2nd on Gabe Linsky’s triple and Michael Green’s sacrifice
fly. Jordan Rice was robbed on a hard liner to third, as was Michael Mulligan on a deep drive to right. What
a way to start the season!

The Panthers won their first game and remained unbeaten with a 7-6 come-from-behind victory at home against
El Segundo on March 6. Ted Dilts pitched 4 and 2/3, but the Panthers were down by 3 when they came to
the plate in the 7th. Jordan Rice doubled to lead off the Panthers bat around, and Michael Green scored the
winning run on a blown pick-off attempt with the bases loaded and a 3-2 count on Chase Nakano. Earlier,
Green had 2 hits and 2 RBIs, and Derek Chance singled. Michael Mulligan doubled and was light’s out for
1 and 2/3 to keep the game close.

On March 10, the Panthers fell to the Loyola Cubs, 10-4, after surrendering 7 unearned runs in a second inning
which featured 12 batters and 8 hits. After the damage was done, the Panthers collected 9 hits and left 10
runners on base (both season highs). Chase Nakano, Michael Green, Michael Mulligan and Gabe Linsky
had 2 hits each, and Jordan Rice also singled. Defensively, Alex Crawford was brilliant in his pitching debut,
scattering 2 hits and 3 walks in 4 1/3 scoreless innings; Jordan Rice made a nice play deep in the hole at short
to retire the lead-off batter in 5th; and Gabe Linsky worked out of a 2-on, 1-out jam to close the game.

Panther bats came alive at San Pedro on March 12 as the Panthers beat the Pirates 8-6 behind 4 extra-base hits.
Will Cummins hit a 3-run homer (the Panthers’ first of the year). Michael Mulligan doubled twice and scored
3 runs. Ted Dilts doubled, scored and had two RBIs. Gabe Linsky had 2 RBIs on a single and a sacrifice
fly. Catcher Michael Green injured his arm while singling in the 5th inning. Defensively, Ted Dilts pitched 5
strong innings, scattering 3 hits and allowing only 1 earned run while recording 6 strikeouts. After robbing a
base hit behind the bag at second, shortstop Jordan Rice closed out the game, striking out 4 in two innings.

After weeks of long rigorous practices, our Frosh/Soph Baseball Team was eager to pounce on the field and
Play Some Baseball!! February 27th, would have been the date of their first pre-season game against Culver
City but it was cancelled due to the weather. Bummer. March 5th, was to be our first game of the North High
Tournament and the Panthers were to play Arcadia High School. Unfortunately, Arcadia High players arrived
too late for the game to start and we were unable to play.

On March 6th, our Panthers played at Downey High School, losing to the Vikings 9 to 3.. Our Panthers did
chalk up 12 hits, including 2 doubles, one by Ryan Fuhrman and the other by Brad Nichols. Jack Seaton
pitched efficiently as a middle-reliever, hitting one batter, but giving up no walks or runs, 2 hits, and he got two
strikeouts. He threw 26 pitches in 2 innings.

On March 9th, Long Beach Jordan visited the Panthers at Miraleste Field, where the Panthers dominated,
winning 15 to 0, allowing no hits. Penn’s pitchers struck-out 11 batters, and gave up 3 walks in 5 innings. Yuuki
Hayakawa struck out 5, Joe Lebental struck out 4, and Drake Schauer struck out 2, facing only 3 batters to
close with 10 pitches in the final inning. Jay Chance threw out a Jordan runner trying to steal 2nd base, with
Mitchel Hong laying the tag down. Chance also started a rundown by throwing over to 3rd base, where they
nailed the runner between 2nd and 3rd. The Panthers had 6 hits and no fielding errors on a very cold, windy
afternoon.

On March 10th, in game #3 of the North High Tournament, the South High Spartans came back late in the game
to tie the Panthers 4 to 4 in a 6 inning game, called due to darkness. Peninsula had 5 hits. Ryan Fuhrman
tripled down the 3rd base line for 2 RBI’s, and pitched 3 scoreless innings. Matt Montalto smacked a double
into left field. The Panthers led 4 to 0 going into the 4th inning, but the Panthers were unable to stop the Spartans
from scoring 2 runs in the 5th and 2 runs in the 6th. The Panthers couldn’t produce another run, so the game
ended in a tie.

Our Frosh/Soph Panthers are off and running. Let’s keep up the hard work boys. Practice Hard and Play Hard!!
Go Frosh/Soph Panthers!!

The Boys Varsity Lacrosse season kicked off with an exciting game at Pen against Chaminade on Saturday,
March 6. The score was tied for a while at 3 to 3 with an eventual slim win by Chaminade, by a final score of
4 to 5. On Monday, March 8, 2010 the team played at Mira Costa against the Mustangs, and the players made a
valiant effort to get some goals for a final score of 12-4 in favor of the Mustangs. Scott Spielman made 6 shots

Jason Yamanaka made two shots each, and Jason Yamanaka made that goal. Ching Kao, Jin Matsumoto,
Spencer Winter, and Hiroki Nakajima all made a shot on the goal, and goalie Barrington Wilson defended
the net from 14 potential goals. Coach Christian Sears is optimistic about having an outstanding season.

                                  JUNIOR VARSITY BOYS LACROSSE

The season opener on Saturday March 6th against Chaminade High School, at home, was a great introduction
for our young, mostly freshman team, into high school lacrosse competition. On Monday, March 8th they met
at Mira Costa High School to challenge the Mustangs.

Having only two games under their belts, at the time of this writing, freshman goalie Michael Gurunlian has
done an impressive job in goal. Our defensive unit, made up of Andrew Berwyn, Peter Berwyn, Zachary
Dunbar and Will Song work as a very strong cohesive unit. Their coach, Chris Jewett, feels they will only
become more solid as the season progresses.

Out of that pack, Andrew Berwyn has emerged as the defender who is capable of shutting down the opposing
team’s best attack man. He is someone who is relentlessly creating fast breaks with his keen sense of defense.
Denny Non and Kyle Uraguachi have been pleasant surprises with their great face-off skills. Denny’s face-offs
against Chaminade created goals and scoring opportunities for Ryan Augustine, Hiroki Nakajima and Nico
Vallin. Jake Stein and Andrew Handlen have demonstrated on the field leadership and hustle, especially as
the defensive middies, as well as off field mentoring, which a young inexperienced junior varsity team needs.

with 15-3 scores. They also place 5th in the 16 team invitation-only Dana Hill Coastal Tournament.

The team, coached by Mike Hoeger, returns four seniors who started as freshmen--Melvin Low, Richard
Yan, Yasuto Miyawaki, and Greg Yin. The four top players are Shuhei Shibahara, Horea Porutiu, Chris

Seniors Justin Song and Lawrence Huang are two-year veterans. Also contributing are juniors Kevin Li and
Teddy Zhu and sophomores Arian Akhavan, Adnan Muttalib, Kyle Reece, and Andrew Zhang. Of the 19

                                             BOYS JV TENNIS

The Junior varsity is 3-2 under seventh year coach Ron Saldana. They figure to repeat as Bay League JV
champions. This team defeated Bishop Montgomery 17-1, Newbury Park 12-6 and San Marino 10-8. They
lost to University and Harvard Westlake. Five juniors anchor the team: Ryan Ho, Karan Karia, Matt Kim,
Ronald Lee and Franco Staub. Five sophomores include returning players Simon Chae and Andrew
Whitman to go along with Albert Lui, Charles Ohata and Manu Vaish. Four freshmen have shown good
early potential: Alex Chen, Benjamin Lee, Matt Menard, and Jake Teren. Recently two more freshmen
were moved up from the frosh/soph team: Yuuma Sakakibara and Daniel Tartakovsky.

                                      BOYS FROSH/SOPH TENNIS

Coach Barbara Dewitt’s frosh/soph team is 1-2. They have the decided disadvantage of playing other teams’
junior varsity squads since most schools do not have frosh/soph tennis programs. The team lost to Brentwood
and Beverly Hills but defeated Sunny Hills 12-6. Returning players include Edwin Choi, Paul Lee and
Jumpei Natake. Other sophomore players include Daniel Byun, Aaron Chang, Michael Flores, Nobutake
Nakagawa, and Hajime Tsuchida. The freshmen class is equally deep: Somdeb Banerjee, Andre Enriquez,
Bruce Fan, Narain Inuganti, Jeff Lee and Chris Yeh. Singles players Yuuma Sakakibara and Daniel
Tartakovsky were recently moved up to the junior varsity because of their inspired play.
