16th. Join us for football (vsMissionBay) under the lights (one night per
year) at PLHS. Look for the alumni seating section. And
please walk with us in the Homecoming parade so present Pointers
can see what Alumni spirit looks like. Wear your Pointer colors (or
if you still fit into something from high school, wear that!) We will
provide kazoos. Meet us on the field just before halftime.

beyond our selves, and beyond our world, as we look to the way we shape the
future is inspiring and thought provoking. Please reply by
