The Pulaski Street School houses 820 fifth and sixth grade students. It is located on Pulaski Street adjacent to Polish Town. The beautiful brick building with its majestic columns was erected in 1938 and was the site of the first high school. With its high ceilings and large windows, the school carries a special charm. School Hours are 8:05AM to 2:35PM.

When you enter Pulaski Street this year you will see some amazing changes and additions as our construction faze comes to an end. All the floors at Pulaski have been replaced, we have a new science classroom and lab, and our new cafeteria and kitchen is up and running. You will also notice that the steps in front and in the back of Pulaski have been replaced to ensure the safety of all.

Pulaski has strong community partnerships with community organizations such as CAP and groups that sponsor essay contests:
- The Community Awareness Program (CAP) emphasizes self-esteem, discipline and remaining drug free.
- Strong arts / music programs and community-sponsored essay contests.
- A variety of after school clubs and after school activities.
- Pulaski students and staff raise awareness and money each year for causes often inspired by the Reading/Writing program and participate in a number of other fund-raisers for charities.

Students Restore Guitars for Students in Need

Art students at Pulaski Street Elementary School are learning that art is more than just drawing and painting through a community service project that involves the restoration of broken guitars.

As part of the initiative, spearheaded by art teacher Bob Fallot, fifth- and sixth-graders spend their Wednesday and Thursday afternoons using screws, paint, wood and tools to repair dilapidated guitars.  

Mr. Fallot, who learned to refurbish instruments by watching videos, obtains the guitars by bidding on them, paying as little as a penny for each one. Once the instruments are repaired, they are donated to organizations such as Hungryformusic.org, a nonprofit that distributes instruments to students in need. Earlier this year, several of the repaired guitars were sent to students in hurricane-damaged areas.

To promote a love of reading among students, three teachers at Pulaski Street Elementary School in the Riverhead Central School District — Stephanie Carrera, Heather Haralambous and Amanda Scalcione — organized a book swap for their students on Dec. 14.

As part of the classroom event, students brought books from home to exchange with their classmates. After making their literary selections, they were treated to a read-aloud by parent volunteers.  

"It was a small but fun celebration of reading," said Carrera.
