Alumni eUpdate News

September 2012

How can it be FALL already? San Diego is still having August humidity in September.

The new school year has begun, and for those of us with fond memories of PLHS it is a fun time to reflect on those first weeks of high school. Fall is also a busy time for Alumni to reunite with classmates at reunion events, and Homecoming! News below.

The PLHS Directory Update project is now complete and print directories have been mailed to those who ordered them. Thank you to everyone who called in to update contact info for our records and so your reunion chair’s to find you! If you missed the postcards or calls, please go to www.plhsalumni.org/register.html and check to be sure you info is current. If the system has any trouble finding your name please use the help button and we will get it figured out.

There are many decisions to be made regarding the
Alumni Committee each year and we need your help to make sure we are giving our Alums the best connection to PLHS possible. The Alumni Committee will meet once a quarter in a relaxed and fun atmosphere (no board meetings!) to talk about eUpdate content, website improvements, events, memorabilia collection, scholarship funding, and anything else committee members want to discuss.

Many thanks to our reunion chairs for their hard work on behalf of their classmates! These events would not happen without them.

SHARE YOUR EXPERTISE and help a Pointer look to the future:

The Introduction to Career Class for freshman students needs professionals willing to come and speak to the class about their career. All careers are interesting to the students. It really helps to hear from people that are working in the field. It brings the career to life. Alumni who have come back to speak the students find it very rewarding and entertaining. If you are interested please contact Ms. Allen at lallen@sandi.net for more information.

ALUMNI WEBSITE: Based on your requests, we will be working on some new additions to the Alumni website:
* In Memoriam page listing all known deceased Pointers,

*Sports Records page
* PLHS News links page (with links to any media pieces about PL.)

plhsalumni.org often and watch for the new additions.
