Office of the President
 Welcome to John F. Kennedy Catholic School



Dear Kennedy Family,

I very much enjoy the opportunity to reflect on all that we have accomplished at John F.Kennedy Catholic School during the previous school year. What our students achieved, the projects we completed, new ideas that were hatched, and the success of our programming.

 I had the good fortune to attend a few celebrations this summer. The first was our Summer Social - Reminisce & Rediscover JFK. We had the opportunity to host the unique classes of 1965, 1966, and 1967 who had the distinction of attending both St. Mary’s High School andJohn F. Kennedy Catholic School. Years later, they were able to speak so clearly about the trepidation of starting new and the exhilaration of leading a new generation of students to our building. I also had the pleasure of visiting with the Class of 1958 during their 60th reunion. Listening to the stories and hearing the history that is both St. Mary’s and Kennedy helped me to understand that even though our alumni did not all attend the same physical building, the purpose and mission of our education was always the same and remains so today.

We implemented numerous new programs during the school year. Our Junior High Speech and Debate team had 40 participants; 23 made it to State level competition, and 11 amazing kids who competed at Nationals in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Our Entrepreneurship Class, launched in the Think Lab, began producing banners, fliers, and signs for local businesses, charities, and our own Kennedy families. We received a $100,0000 grant from The Cafaro Foundation  and broke ground on a dedicated space for our growing Band program at the Upper Campus.Finally, we celebrated the back-to-back State Championship title of our Cheerleaders and the students who achieved the opportunity to participate in state level athletic competition inGirls Tennis (Kaytlin Martlatt  and Lauren Kraker ) Boys Tennis (Armand Nannicola), and BoysGolf (Jimmy Graham).

Our Lower Campus Eagles took full advantage of 1:1 Technology, using it daily for classroom instruction and being active participants in our school wide Hour of Code, designed to inspire and motivate students to learn the importance of coding. Our after school enrichment program offered 15 different classes ranging from Chess, Yoga, and Gardening to Cheer, and Karate. These after school programs served 234 students throughout the 2017-18 school year. Further, we are proud of the many clubs, camps, and athletic teams at the Lower Campus that gave our Eagles the chance to participate and learn together, building the next generation of Kennedy athletes.

Without your time, talent, and support none of this would be possible. Your belief in the value of a Catholic education is the foundation of what we strive to do here each day.Our students will be the doctors, lawyers, judges, and social activists of tomorrow.They will change our world for the better like those who came before them, leaders of Courage, Integrity, and Dedication.

John F. Kennedy Catholic School President
