HOMECOMING 2008: Message from the PSHS Alumni Association Chairman

Dear PSHS Alumnus/Alumna

September 6 is fast approaching!

Here are some compelling reasons why you should attend this year's homecoming:

1. We are uniting our alumni associations!

PSHSAA and PSHS National AA boards have already reached an agreement to mergeboth organizations and we need the resolution to be ratified by the General Assemblythrough a referendum.

As we mark the alumni’s 25th anniversary, it’s but fitting that we finally get to unite bothorganizations. It’s our hope that even if we become bigger in scope, the merged organizationbecomes more efficient, more relevant, and more responsive to the needs of the growing alumni and PSHS community.

We've already posted the rationale for merger and the proposed amendments to theconstitution in the PSHS homepage. Visit and click Alumni Corner/Alumni Forum button to read more about this proposal and for you to make an informed decision.

2. Witness the 6th Gawad Lagablab awarding ceremony!

For the first time, we're bringing the awards closer to the alumni by holding the ceremonyduring the homecoming. Gawad Lagablab being the awards for the alumni and by the alumni,the awards committee felt that the awards should be shared with and witnessed by a greater number of alumni.

A special Gawad Lagablab exhibit located at the gym entrance will also be opened prior to the ceremony.

You'll surely be inspired by the awardees' exceptional and exemplary accomplishments!

3. Take home exciting PSHS Alumni souvenir items!

Bring extra cash and take home an alumni shirt or two. Or how about a jacket or an umbrella for the rainy weather? You can also buy USB flash drives with that distinctive PSHS alumni logo and make an impression as you work on your reports in your laptop.

But we’re not about to spoil the fun with a tell-all.

Green fun, green surprises, and a green fashion show await us all!

Thank you very much and we look forward to seeing you on September 6!

Mabuhay ang PSHS Alumni!
