WE BECOME ONE AT REDONDO UNION:
No matter where our RBUSD students begin their educational journeys, their paths always lead to
Redondo Union High School. Let’s showcase our unity and support our current and future Sea Hawks, by helping upgrade the outdated and malfunctioning RUHS digital marquee on N. PCH. Our goal is to raise $50,000, and if every RBUSD family could donate at least $6 per enrolled student, we could
easily reach this goal. To help upgrade the RUHS marquee, Text RUHSMAR to 44-321 Website: https://rbef.org/ruhsmar

On the AMC 10, our school winner was Theo Danial, with Alexandria Lopresto in second. Garrett Moser was 3rd, Connor Robertson was 4th, and Isabella Langa was 5th.

exploretech.la is an annual event hosted by UCLA students that aims to inspire high school students from underserved communities in the Greater Los Angeles Area to explore computer science,
engineering, and technology. In partnership with industry and academic organizations, our event
introduces students to the various applications of tech through our panels, interactive workshops, and exhibition hall. Due to COVID-19, our event will be completely virtual this year and will be free for all Los Angeles County high school students (and teachers). It will be hosted through an online
virtual platform where we will be porting over many of our prior activities and adding new ones.
