Pointer FAQ's

How do you get involved in the Pointer Association?

The Pointer Association meets on the second Monday of each month at 6:00 p.m. in the PLHS Library (with a few exceptions - please check Master Calendar).  All parents, teachers, staff, students and community members are welcome.  Meetings usually last about an hour and are not only informative, but also provide a wonderful time to hear important information about PLHS and learn about upcoming events and how you can get involved.  The Pointer Association needs your time, your talents and your contributions. Together we can continue to do great things for the students of PLHS.


How can I get involved and volunteer?

Attend a Pointer Association meeting – we would welcome you to attend. We will work with you to identify opportunities to volunteer or we will find a project or role that meets your preferences and schedule. Please start by getting to know the Pointer Association on our webpages. Under our Volunteer tab, you can read about the many opportunities to work together with the Pointer Association. Contact people are also shown on our website. If you cannot commit to a project or ongoing role, you can also sign up to be an on call volunteer.


I’m always hearing about monetary cutbacks at the district level. Can I donate to the school directly?

Yes!  We need your support and you may donate by check or credit card online.  The Pointer Association is a 501 (c) (3) non-profit organization.  Your donation is tax-deductible.  Simply click on the "Contribute" tab.


Where does my money go?

Money raised supports and augments many needs at the school from science equipment, classroom enrichment to programs and requests in the arts, music, academic programs and athletics, and for capital improvements.  Ultimately, our goal is to give our students the best well-rounded education we can. Details are shown on the Contribute tab of the Pointer Association webpages.
