Fifty years ago, in September 1961, the doors of Pulaski Senior High School opened for the first time when enrollment of public high school students challenged the existing high school’s capacity.
Originally built as a junior high, Pulaski was the smaller of the two public high schools but became “the little school that could,” even beating New Britain High twice in the annual Thanksgiving Day football game. No one was prouder of their school or held their heads higher than the graduates of Pulaski High School.
Sadly, decreasing enrollment caused the high school’s closing and in June 1982, the last class of Pulaski Senior High School graduated. The school remains open as Pulaski Middle School.
On September 8, 2012, alumni from all 21 graduating classes including those that attended Pulaski but did not graduate as well as friends from other New Britain high schools and teachers will be gathering to celebrate the 50th Anniversary of the opening of Pulaski High School.
The event will be held at Falcon Field, Farmington Avenue, New Britain, from 1 to 6 p.m. and will include tours of the school, food, music from the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s, a roaming photographer, and more.
Money raised will be put into a scholarship fund for future high school graduates who have a connection to Pulaski Senior High School.
