  August 2009




The name change is official...the PLHSFAA is now the PLHS Pointer Association!  More info below. 

Grad Hats 09Congratulations to our newest Pointer alumni, the PLHS Class of 2009.  And 10 paws up to PLHS Classes of 1949 and 59 who celebrated their 60th and 50th reunions this summer. 

Our Pointer family carries forward the pride of Point Loma High and 84+ years of history.  Plans are being made for a Gala to celebrate our 85th Birthday in Fall of 2010!  Stay tuned for more information and ticket details. (The 80th Gala sold out weeks before the event leaving many Pointers disappointed.)

We are trying out a new format for the eUpdates. You will find introductory information for articles followed by a link where you can click to read more. And we hope to begin linking to more photos of Pointers past, present and future. Let us know if you like it!

Association Scholarships assist Pointer Grads

The tradition of giving scholarships to graduating seniors began with the original PLHS Alumni Association in the mid 70's.  Since that time, close to $100,000 in scholarships have been awarded through this organization!
In addition to Association scholarships, Memorial scholarships are given whenever friends and family elect to raise funds to honor an individual.  If you would like to learn more about honoring a classmate or community member with a memorial scholarship, or if your class would like to give a scholarship in honor of a special reunion milestone, contact Kim at the Association office.

Homecoming 2009
October 16, 2009


Pointer alumni, come home! Join us on Oct. 16th at the Homecoming night game and festivities. 


We hope to have a large alumni group to walk in the parade again this year.  (Who knows, one day we may have own float!)

Class Pranks
We asked, and here are the ones that are fit for print!

Everything from dead cats hanging across the courtyard to vaseline on the door knobs and railings (incoming freshman still dread the vaseline!) You told us about class pranks through the years.  We do not advocate class pranks, but hope these may bring back fond memories. 

Read Pranks.
