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 Bridget Brosnan and Cruz Berrios, Pulaski’s Resource Coordinators, and Bob Fox, Friends of Pulaski’s Volunteer Chair and Michelle Sherman, Pulaski parent.   Bridget, Cruz, Bob and Michelle will oversee volunteer registration, coordinate volunteer schedules, and serve as the point-person between volunteers and teachers/administrators.   Please email Bob, bob@friendsofpulaski.org, to be added to the master volunteer list.
