WELCOME BACK!!!Hello TROJANS!
We here at JFK are totally excited to get the 2013-14 school year off to a great start! We have many new staff members and many you've known for a long time, and we are ALL ready to have the halls and rooms filled with eager students. As our district mission states, we are all about "Educating caring, capable, and responsible citizens." We want to partner with community and parents to turn out some amazing young people in to this world.
JFK has many opportunities for supporting your child in his/her effort to be successful. We have a caring staff that truly wants to see your child succeed. Their doors are open most days before and after school for extra help. In addition, each Mon-Thurs beginning September 16th, we have "THE HC" (aka Homework Club) available in the library from 3-4pm. A teacher is available to help during that time as well as in Saturday School, which is offered in the library from 8am-noon approximately two Saturdays per month. We will continue having TLC time on Thursdays. Students who are earning above a D in all classes will have the opportunity to leave at 1:48 each Thursday (with your permission). They may choose to stay, however, and take part in getting some work done in the library, working with another student, or participating in an enrichment activity. Those earning a D or an F or who are requested to stay by a teacher will be assigned a TLC (Teaching and Learning Center/Study Hall) in order to have time to get work finished, a test retaken, etc.
We strive to make communication happen at JFK. There are many ways we do this. Parents are provided with a log in in order to view their child's grades 24/7. We also give a printed progress report to each and every student on Wednesdays during Career Development. In addition, we use this website, the JFK Facebook page, monthly newsletters, the electronic reader board on the gym, the all call system, etc in order to keep you up-to-date. Please take advantage of these.
Please take every opportunity to be involved in your child's education. We can't do it without you! We are here to help and are open to suggestions and feedback. I am looking forward to a TREMENDOUS 5th year here! Off we go.....
Dear Parents of John F. Kennedy Students,
