John F. Kennedy Middle School students participated in Soaring Eagles Day, an annual character education program at the school on Oct.23 . 

Kicking off the day, students in grades 6-8 attended two assemblies, “Everyday Hero” by Chris Poulos and “Creating the Champion Within” by Molly Kennedy, where they learned about positive mindset thinking, perseverance, self-discipline and responsibility. 

Following, teachers administered a variety of classroom lessons, during which students shared their reactions to the assemblies, played team building games and wrote inspirational messages to athletes of the Special Olympics, which the district will host in May.

The day concluded with a pep rally in the gymnasium, where the students cheered for and applauded the middle school athletic teams.   

JFK Celebrates Halloween!

Gardening at JFK


On October 10, the JFK Kiwanis Builders Club, and advisor, Mrs. Ciarniello,  helped plant the back garden of JFK,  just outside the gym. Twenty members showed up to dig holes, arrange plants, and clean up this garden. Now,  when people attend games on the field, they will see a new and lovely garden. A special shout out to Mrs. Dircks, the PTA person who arranged this activity for the club, by obtaining the plants, and bringing gloves and garden shovels. The kids worked hard, had fun and within a half hour, everything was finished.
