PCPC to host annual pool parties for rising sixth, ninth graders

Pulaski Community Partners Coalition (PCPC) will once again be hosting its annual pool parties for Pulaski County’s rising sixth and ninth graders.

The party for rising sixth graders at Pulaski and Dublin Middle Schools is scheduled for Tuesday, July 30 from 6 – 8 p.m., while the pool party for ninth graders entering Pulaski County High School this fall will happen on Thursday, August 1 from 6 – 8 p.m. Both parties are free to eligible students and will be held at the Randolph Park pool in Dublin.

Officials with PCPC point out that access to the pool area will be restricted to those students only. Students will be asked to check in before entering the pool area.

Parents/guardians and siblings will not be allowed to enter the pool area, but are welcome to take advantage of the resource fair that will be staged near the pool entrance. A variety of local organizations will be on hand to share information with parents and families.

Pulaski County Parks & Recreation will have lifeguards on duty during the pool parties. Parents/guardians who leave must return to pick up their student(s) by 8:00 p.m.
