Pulaski County Public Schools would like to publicly thank all of those who have served our country in the Armed Forces. No matter which branch or job, we appreciate the sacrifices you all made in the name of defending our freedoms that we enjoy each day. We also recognize all of those PCPS Alumni who have served or are currently serving. Today, throughout the day, we will also be posting photos of PCPS employees who have served. We hope to find out who all of our Veterans are eventually so that we may recognize them appropriately, but as of this moment we have found 11 PCPS employees who are also Veterans. We will begin posting those photos within the hour. Happy Veterans Day!

Latsch named Teacher of the Month Pulaski County Public School and Pulaski Elementary are proud to honor Crystal Latsch as Teacher of the Month. Mrs. Latsch is currently teaching second grade at PES. She has been teaching for 13 years, with five of those being at Pulaski Elementary. Mrs. Latsch is known to be an exemplary teacher in times of hardship. She serves on various committees and goes above and beyond her normal duties. She is always willing to help out in areas of need and does so with the kindest heart. She is “looping” this year, volunteering to move up a grade with her students. You will not find a more dedicated teacher in PCPS than Mrs. Latsch. Pulaski Elementary is grateful for her constant positive attitude and dedication. She and her husband, Wayne, have two children, Abby and Zack. Her hobbies include spending time with family, church, scrapbooking, and puzzles of any kind. Congratulations to our teacher of the month, Crystal Lastch.

Secrist named Employee of the Month Pulaski County Public Schools and Pulaski Elementary are proud to announce that Kim Secrist has been selected as the November Employee of the Month. Mrs. Secrist has been at Pulaski Elementary for 12 years. Last year she was promoted to Cafeteria Manager. Her husband is Rick, and she has two daughters, Kassidy and Keslyn. In her spare time, she dedicates every minute she has to her girls and basketball. Mrs. Secrist is usually one of the first people to arrive at the school each morning. She communicates with faculty and staff on a daily basis. The school never knows when the cafeteria is understaffed because she manages the cafeteria so efficiently. She adapts well to constant change, and always has a positive attitude. She interacts with everyone in the building in a friendly manner, and sees that each student’s needs are met. What is also equally important, is that she helps make the principal happy with his dietary needs. We are thankful for her impressive work ethic, and we are lucky to have her in our building. Congratulations to our employee of the month. Kim Secrist.

Pulaski County Public Schools and Pulaski Elementary School were pleased to have Timothy (Timmy) Talbert lead us in the Pledge of Allegiance. Timmy is a second grader in Mrs. Wilson’s class, and is the son of Crystal Talbert and the Late James Talbert. He has a sister, Alexandria. Timmy loves YouTube videos and cannot turn down the chance to play any type of video game. He is currently interested in researching and playing the piano. His favorite foods are pizza and tacos. When in school, Timmy is a student who loves learning, and has never met a stranger. He loves sparking up conversations with adults as well as his peers. Quite simply, his personality makes others feel special and he always puts a smile on others faces.

Each year at Dublin Elementary School, students take time to decorate the side fence in recognition of the many sacrifices our Veterans make to protect our freedoms and way of life. This year, with cups donated by first grade parents, the students posted this message on the fence. Great job Shamrock students, and thank you to all of our Veterans!

Critzer students helping support United Way Critzer Elementary School students have been working hard recently in support of the United Way. There has been a fundraiser, which began November 3. Students have cards that will recognize each donation and will hang in the school. The Critzer Critters were determined to prove that “United We Can!” The students were scheduled to continue collecting donations through Monday, November 8. The United Way of Southwest Virginia covers Lee, Scott, Wise, Russell, Dickenson, Buchanan, Tazewell, Washington, Smyth, Grayson, Wythe, Bland, Carroll, Giles and Pulaski counties, as well as the cities of Norton, Bristol and Galax. The United Way works to assist in the health, education and financial stability of every person in Southwest Virginia, because they are the building blocks for a good quality of life. In this photo we see several of the students with Mrs. Dillon showing a few of their cards. Great job Critters!
