Parents, we need your help!   Let’s recognize our outstanding teachers at Pulaski.  Each year the Golden Apple Foundation selects ten outstanding teachers to be recipients of the Golden Apple Award for Excellence in Teaching.  This year the Foundation is looking for Pre-k to 3rd grade teachers currently teaching full-time in any public school in Cook, DuPage, Kane, Lake, McHenry, or Will counties.  

So, let’s get to work.  

Administrators, teachers, counselors, parents and students are invited to nominate outstanding teachers!  Details on what the award recipients receive and the paper application to nominate a teacher can be found here.  You may also nominate online at  The deadline is January 5, 2015 but don’t delay, nominate a teacher today!


Don’t FALL over.  There are no TRICKS here.  However, we have some extremely exciting news … With Halloween, Dia do lose Muertos, and Thanksgiving right around the corner, a few Pulaski families are expressing THANKS for our wonderful school by TREATING everyone to a matching campaign.  We need your help for he full impact to be realized.

We are excited to announce that these Pulaski families, wishing to remain anonymous, have pledged $4000, together, as a matching gift to help increase our technology investment. This means that every dollar you donate to Friends of Pulaski will be doubled, up to $4000, between now and November 23, 2014. Even if you donate $10, you are actually making sure the school gets $20!  Amazing!!!

DONATE HERE.  Your donation is tax-deductible.  You may also send cash/checks to school in an envelope “Attention Friends of Pulaski”.

Double your impact and help us reach our $8000 goal ($4000 in new donations) between now and November 23rd.  With your help, we look forward to delivering even more to our children’s education.  if you have any questions, please send me an email at
