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!

On Thursday, October 27, 2016 JFK Middle School hosted their annual “Soaring Eagles Day”. The day was full of character education workshops that were built around inspirational author and speaker Marc Mero’s message. Mr. Mero is a former football and hockey all-star, a four time NYS Boxing champion, a WWE Wrestling Champion and the founder of “Champion of Choices”. The day ended with the annual Pep Rally where the JFK student body cheered for the middle school athletic teams as well as local athletes from the Special Olympics. Overall, it was a fantastic day for the JFK teachers, staff and students.

Our JFK librarian, Ms. Phillips, held a “book tasting” in the “Library Cafe,” where 8th grade English students sampled various books on the menu. Complete with table settings, a roaring “fire,” and flowers on the table, the library was transformed into a fancy feast for readers. Students enjoyed perusing through Ms. Phillips’ suggestions for each course while “dining” with their classmates. 

TGIF for JFK

JFK held its first TGIF of the year and it was an energetic success with over 450 students attending!  Everyone had a great time playing basketball, dodgeball, ping pong, board games, swimming, watching movies and eating over 60 pizzas!  Thanks to all the teachers and staff who volunteered to join us on a great Friday night!
