      All District Retirement Celebration is on Thursday May 17 at TOMS from 3:30-5:00pm.

     719 Retirees are invited to gather at The Pointe in PL for a casual get together after the district Celebration. Come to visit and catch up with former colleagues and share news about life! 

     May 17 is also one of PLSEA organized “Cash Mob” events at The Pointe. So while you’re all there be sure to mention PLSEA as they will get back 10% of all sales that evening that reference PLSEA. 

They have used those funds for student assistance money. This year they have been able to give out 3 assistance checks to students (1 GD, 1 HOMS, 1 PLHS)....feels pretty great!!! 

     We get to catch up and support our kids!!
