Principal's Message

Welcome to John F. Kennedy Elementary School, home of the Bulldogs. As students, parents, staff and members of the community, we value your input and are excited to have you as part of our Kennedy Family. Through our combined commitment, we will strive towards our common goal of developing the maximum potential of all our students - both academically and socially.

Our faculty and staff anxiously look forward to this challenge and are committed to reaching our high expectations. We feel our school-based decision making process contributes to a success driven approach that is loaded with high morale that will filter down to our students.

The road to success is not always a smooth one as society provides obstacles that can cause detours. However, we are optimistic that through a collaborative approach, we will steer the course and reach our goals. We need you and welcome you as partners.

This year our staff takes on a new challenge of developing Staff Development centered around the needs of our Kennedy students. Through the efforts of our School Based Professional Development Committee, Improving Student Achievement Committee and our Quality Assurance Team, we feel we have put together a program that will strengthen the strategies and techniques that will enable our students to succeed. We head into this venture with enthusiasm and high expectations.

As always, we look forward to seeing you throughout the year at Parents’ Night, school programs, or routine visits. If you have any concerns or suggestions, feel free to contact us.

Anticipating a successful school year,

Your Kennedy Administration Team

Frank Bafumi - Principal

Diana Madrid - Vice Principal
