• The Phalen Podcast is a platform to embrace our JRPLA scholars (current or alumni), teachers and staff, families, and community partners by sharing their story and how PLA has impacted them or connected with them. The Phalen Way Podcast allows our community to have a safe and fun platform to express themselves and all of their endeavors. We are always open to any scholar, any PLA teacher or staff, family member, or community partner that would like to schedule a time to come inside JRPLA and talk about current events.
