Cabrillo-Point Dume Elementary School Merger Simpler Than Picking New Name
Written by 991KBU on March 21, 2019
School Superintendent Ben Drati observes a “lack of consensus” in the selection “Marine Ocean Elementary School” as the new name for the old school on Point Dume.
He is yanking the item off of tonight’s school board agenda.
Also … he is withdrawing “narwhals” and blue and green as the proposed school mascot and colors.
Drati postpones board consideration of the recommended name and mascot “until such time as further conversations have taken place.
Narwhals live in the icy waters of the Arctic seas.
Some Malibu voices have said they wonder why an animal that does not live anywhere near here has been chosen as the mascot.
Others have commented that Malibu Ocean elementary School sounds antiseptic … like it was designed by a committee and approved by bureaucrats.
Now it appears those good people have some more work to do.
