Panuke named next head football coach at Kennedy High School
Joe Panuke has been named head football coach at John F. Kennedy High School. Panuke has nine years of football coaching experience. The past six years, Panuke has been a Health and PE teacher at JFK while also assisting in the football and baseball programs. Prior to coming to Mount Angel, Panuke was an assistant coach at Marshfield High School and Regis. 

"Coach Panuke brings an extensive knowledge of the game to our program" said Principal Craig Swanson. "More importantly, he brings a passion for helping the students he works with develop to the best of their abilities. Coach Panuke will have our football team prepared for success in the classroom as well as under the lights on Fridays."

If you have any questions regarding football this summer, please contact Coach Panuke at:
New JFK High Principal
 Dear Students, Parents and Staff:
It is with great pleasure that I introduce myself to you as the new principal of John F. Kennedy High School.  For the past two years, I have been an Assistant Principal and Athletic Director at Sprague High School in Salem.  Prior to entering administration, I taught mathematics and coached basketball, track & field and cross country for 15 years, most recently at West Albany High School.
My educational path includes earning a diploma from West Albany High School, a Bachelor's Degree from Montana State University, a Master's Degree from Portland State University and my Initial Administrator Licensure from George Fox University.  My wife, Janelle, and I have two daughters (Madison and Caitlin).
I am thankful for this opportunity and appreciate the time that Ms. Debi Brazelton spent with me to help transition from her leadership as principal to mine.  I wish her good luck as she moves into a new position with the North Santiam School District in Stayton.
In conclusion, I look forward to meeting the students, parents and staff at JFK.  I will post some dates that I will be in the office in July so you can come by and introduce yourself.  Currently, I am working on finalizing schedules with our new counselor, Jake Copley, so we can start the year off with all students challenging themselves with the appropriate coursework to ensure that everybody is on track to graduate.  If you have anything that you would like to communicate with me, please feel free to email me at:

Estimados estudiantes, padres y personal: 
Es con gran placer que me presento ante ustedes como la nueva directora de la John F. Kennedy High School. Durante los últimos dos años, he sido un Subdirector y Director de Deportes de la Escuela Secundaria Sprague en Salem. Antes de entrar en la administración, enseñé matemáticas y entrenado baloncesto, atletismo y campo a través durante 15 años, la más reciente en West Albany High School. 
Mi trayectoria educativa incluye obtener un diploma de West Albany High School, una licenciatura de la Universidad Estatal de Montana, una maestría de la Universidad Estatal de Portland y mi Licenciatura administrador inicial de George Fox University. Mi esposa, Janelle y yo tenemos dos hijas (Madison y Caitlin). 
Estoy agradecido por esta oportunidad y agradezco el tiempo que la señora Debi Brazelton pasó conmigo para ayudar a la transición de su liderazgo como director de la mía. Le deseo buena suerte como ella se mueve a una nueva posición con el Distrito Escolar North Santiam en Stayton. 
En conclusión, espero con interés la reunión de los estudiantes, padres y personal en el aeropuerto JFK. Voy a publicar algunas de las fechas que voy a estar en el cargo en julio para que pueda venir y preséntese. Actualmente, estoy trabajando en la finalización de los horarios con nuestro nuevo consejero, Jake Copley, para que podamos empezar el año con todos los estudiantes de retarse a sí mismos con los cursos apropiados para asegurarse de que todo el mundo está en camino a graduarse. Si usted tiene cualquier cosa que usted desea comunicarse conmigo, por favor no dude en escribirme a:
