News from the PHS Counselors

March 2019

February Was A Wild Ride!

It has been an unusual couple of months here at school with mother nature at the wheel. Snow days, cold weather days, 2 hours delays...they all impact educators and students. If your student is struggling with the lack of consistency please contact us! Counselors can serve as an advocate and constant in a student's life when things feel unsteady. Sometimes just meeting once and going over organization strategies can help a student feel more confident during the final few months of the school year. We are here for you!

Scholarship Ticket Raffle Underway!

Annually, the Pulaski Education Foundation runs a scholarship raffle to award deserving seniors $1000 scholarships during the annual scholarship recognition night. Our goal this year is to give out four $1000 scholarships! Many folks have been selling raffle tickets at different sporting and fine arts events throughout the school year. On March 18th, students will be able to begin selling raffle tickets for prizes like a big screen TV, Apple Airpods and a Mini-Fridge. If you are interested in purchasing or selling tickets, they are $5 and are sold at the PHS student services office or the PACE office. Help our Scholarship Foundation grow so it can benefit seniors for many years to come!
