Visual and Performing Arts Open House
April 14, 1-4pm

The PLHS Foundation and Alumni Association is presenting a Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) Open House on the Point Loma High School campus, April 14, 1pm to 4pm.  We will have an art show featuring drawing, painting, ceramics and computer graphics in the Media Center.  This art show will also feature works by selected PLHS alumni. 

In the Performing Arts Center, we will have presentations by Drama students, Choir, Dance and student films.  In the quad areas, we will have musical performances by our Wind and Jazz Ensembles.  Additional classrooms will be open showing more student films and graphic printing.

We will be reaching out to all elementary and middle schools in our cluster about this event via the school offices, PTAs, Foundations and our new Cluster Council.  We hope to attract the attention of local residents and business owners as well. 

Come see the creative talent on campus at Point Loma High!
PLHS Softball Field...
Demonstrating how alumni can make things happen for students!
On March 15th the new PLHS girl's softball field was dedicated.  This project was completed with funding from the School District supplemented by a generous contribution from the Peckham Family fund (Peter Peckham '44). PL Alum, Scott Hoff '73, (daughter Jaimee '08 plays on the team) supervised the project and saw it through to completion in record time. 
Alumni can, and DO, make a difference at PLHS!  Join us.

2006-2007 Funding Initiatives 
PLHSFAA is constantly working with staff to improve the quality of life on campus and enhance educational opportunities for all students.  We have identified five areas of emphasis to maintain PLHS as a Center of Excellence: 
  21st Century Learning:  (Digital Classrooms)  Upgrade computer access,   communications equipment and teaching tools and enable web- based curriculum for Twenty First Century student literacy.

 AthleticsAthletics (under-funded sports):  Funding for popular interscholastic sports that do not fall within the School's capability to fund (and do not have parent Booster groups.)

Music Center:  State-of-the-art facility for PLHS's regionally renowned and rapidly expanding music program.
Pointer Pride Scholarships:  Scholarships for college-bound students. 
S.C.A.P.E.:  a Safe, Clean, Attractive Place for Education: Improvements to the Chatsworth entrance to PLHS
To learn more about these initiatives or to make a contribution that will help us fund these important programs, go to our website www.pointerassociation.org.
   .com or .org ?
Actually, it is either for the time being.  We have changed our domain name to www.pointerassociation.org to better reflect our nonprofit status.  During the transition both plhsfaa.com and plhsfaa.org will direct you to our website.  So change us in your favorites to www.pointerassociation.org, but if you still  see '.com' in use rest assured you can find us with that extension too!
Check out our website which is going through some updating....and watch for info on an exciting new feature just for Alumni!

Once a Pointer, always a Pointer!
