PLHS Alumni eUpdate
October 2013

With school back in session, and many alums enjoying the memories and friendships rekindled at Reunion events, it must be Fall! This eUpdate includes pictures from this year's Reunions and news about Alumni activities at Homecoming. Hope to see many of you on Nov. 8th.

PLHS Homecoming is Friday November 8th
This is the one game played ‘under the lights’ each year and it is not to be missed. Thanks to the encouragement and enthusiasm of many Alums who enjoyed successful reunions this year, we will be offering several activities specifically for Alumni at Homecoming.

We need an approximate headcount for both the Tour and Meet and Greet so please RSVP (and include your grad year*) by email before November 6th. (*We honor our most senior alum in attendence at the Homecoming game: 'the Golden Pointer'.)

Come Home to PLHS and show our Pointer Pups
what Alumni Spirit is all about!

Final Details about Homecoming will be coming by eUpdate around November 4th.

Class of 1963
On campus in the Motion Picture Industries Facility, the Weight Room, and one of the only original classrooms that remains on campus!

Alumni News:

Congratulations to Steve Cushman ’58 who was named Mr. San Diego 2013!

Kudos to
Mitch Murphy '72 and Barbara Yancey Franklin '73 for their work on the Wave Goodbye to MS paddle around the pier. Mitch was co-chair of this first annual event. It was a great day and there were alums from many classes at PL who paddled and supported the event. Don't miss it next Fall!
