How do you get involved in the Pointer Association?

The Pointer Association meets on the second Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in room 204 (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.

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.
