At the end of the day, the most overwhelming key to a child’s success is the positive involvement of parents.

There are a myriad of Volunteer Opportunities at Pulaski — enough to fit any schedule. We encourage each family member to volunteer – your time makes a difference!

Volunteer efforts at Pulaski are now directed by Michelle Sherman, Pulaski’s Resource Coordinator, and Bob Fox and Michele O’Connor, Friends of Pulaski’s Volunteer Co-Chairs. Michelle, Bob, and Michele will oversee volunteer registration, coordinate volunteer schedules, and serve as the liaison between volunteers and teachers/administrators.

Please email Bob, bob@friendsofpulaski.org, to be added to the master volunteer list.
