Zora with PTSA President Our school winners went on to compete at the Pasadena PTA Council (comprised of all PUSD PTAs). Council winners then advanced to the PTA 1st District, whose area includes all PTAs from Burbank to Pomona. Three of the four PUSD winners at the PTA District level are from Blair! What a great showing for our school. Not only that, Zora Arceneaux's photography submission was chosen for Outstanding Interpretation and is now competing at the state level!
