Pulaski Local School Council Elections this Wednesday

Following is a cut-and-pasted email regarding the Pulaski IB 2010 Elections. I am posting it here so I can link to it in today's Pipeline. After attending a Constant Contact Business 101 this past week, I learned that it's better to link than to put TMI in your e-newsletter, thus in the future I will try to do more linking to keep the scroll bar fatigue down. Last week's Pipeline was 22 printed pages. That is too long!

Pulaski IB 2010 Parents Need Your Vote!

LSC Election


This month marks the two year anniversary of our grass roots effort to improve Pulaski Elementary. Your assistance in writing letters, making phone calls and attending meetings was instrumental to our success. It has been a true community effort and we are proud to be a part of it.

The Pulaski Local School Council (LSC) elections are this Wednesday, April 21st. If you are unfamiliar, the LSC is equivalent to a local school board. The LSC has several important oversight responsibilities, the most important being principal selection.

Several of our Pulaski IB parents are running in the LSC election. Your votes are critical to electing these parents to the LSC and will guarantee our voices will be heard.
