Malibu High School

Furry friends

Two weeks ago, Malibu High School’s Animal Rights Club hosted a screening of the documentary “The Paw Project.”  

More than 50 students attended to learn about the practice of de-clawing cats, which is becoming increasingly viewed as inhumane.  

After the screening, documentarian Jennifer Conrad, DVM, spoke with students and answered questions on the future of de-clawing cats in the United States. This practice has recently been outlawed by cities, including Los Angeles and Santa Monica.

Robotic rewards

On March 8, OLM School hosted a Robotics Education and Competition Foundation competition. 

There were nine teams competing for spots in the California State Championship on March 15 in Santa Clara. Glen Sunyich, 

OLM’s technology and robotics leader and his wife, Debra Rubenacker, pulled off a great event. They spent numerous hours in preparation as well as being on the go constantly during the competition. 

OLM had three teams, with members from three different grade levels, competing: Josh Kamen, Tripp Principe and Liam Mudd represented OLM’s seventh-grade class; Calvin Joyce, Quinn Conway, Rachel DeAngelis, Nicholas Vandergon and David Songa represented OLM’s sixth-grade class; and Samantha Palmer, Renni Collins and Ama Allan represented OLM’S fifth-grade class.

The tournament’s Overall Excellence Award went to OLM’s Malibu Mechanized team.
