Keep Up With The Panthers


On Wednesday, December 7, students and teachers from the Willenberg Special Education Center in San Pedro will spend the day at Peninsula High School. This has been an annual tradition here at PVPHS for over 40 years. Each Willenberg student will be teamed up with Pen High students for the day and will tour the campus together, visit classrooms and offices, play games in the gym, and more.
The highlight of the visit will be when the students from Willenberg provide a holiday performance for our Pen community during an extended lunch period. All Pen High students and staff are encouraged to come out to the gym to watch and cheer on this always entertaining, imaginative and touching performance. Click here for details.

Pen High drama students are staging The Laramie Project on December 2, 3, 9 and 10 in the PAC.

In October 1998, college student Matthew Shepard was kidnapped, severely beaten and left to die, tied to a fence on the outskirts of Laramie, Wyoming. Five weeks later, Moisés Kaufman and fellow members of the Tectonic Theater Project went to Laramie, and over the course of the next year, conducted more than 200 interviews with people of the town. From these interviews they wrote the play The Laramie Project, a chronicle of the life of the town of Laramie in the year after the murder.

As part of the 125th anniversary celebration of basketball, the Naismith Memorial Basketball Hall of Fame in Springfield, MA has released a list of the top 125 venues in the game of basketball. Venues on the list range from high school gymnasiums to college, professional, global, and outdoor venues. Peninsula High has been named on that list of Top 125 Basketball Venues! The accommodation reads in part: "... don't expect to roll into the Main Gym and pick up an easy win. The Panthers' rowdy student group - The Zoo - rents animal costumes for the season and is nationally renowned for creating a home-court advantage." The Basketball Hall of Fame will be presenting us with a celebratory banner to hang in our gym - Home of the Panthers and Home of The Zoo.
