On Saturday, Feb. 18, the JFK Kiwanis Builders Club and advisor, Mrs. Ciarniello,  visited the Central Island Nursing Home in Plainview. There, they helped some of the residents play Bingo, and they also enjoyed calling the numbers. Finally, they handed out hand-made Valentine cards, which were happily received by the residents. This was a great experience for Middle School students.

On Monday February 27, 2017, a group of students met with Ms. Maloney and Ms. Okita to learn about creating a budget. Lina Penuela- Rannazzisi, from Bethpage Federal Credit Union came to facilitate this workshop. Each student was given a career and monthly income at random. Through an interactive lesson, students made financial decisions in terms of housing, transportation, clothing, food, and entertainment, while taking into consideration the monthly income they were given. Students were surprised by all the associated costs and how intricate creating a budget can be. The group had a great time and most importantly learned life lessons about making smart choices when it comes to finances.

JFK 21st Century students visited Bethpage Federal Credit Union over the holiday break and got a tour of the facilities and the opportunity to meet lots of employees and CEO Wayne Grosse.  Everyone was very kind and talked about their career paths.  Students visited each division of the bank and also visited the vault where they got see what $100,000 in cash looks like!  It was all very interesting and BFCU employees put the students through some mock loan interviews.  Thanks to everyone at BFCU for being such good neighbors and hosts!
