JFK Halloween 2020





"We are on our way with J.F.K."

John F. Kennedy Elementary School in West Babylon, New York, is a kindergarten through fifth grade public school. The school opened its doors, for the first time in September 1965. The school was named for the 35th president of the United States, John Fitzgerald Kennedy, who had been assassinated in Dallas, Texas, in 1963.

Our mission statement reads, "The community of John F. Kennedy Elementary School is committed to encouraging, empowering and engaging children as they are valued, for their individuality, and diverse capabilities. We emphasize the individual needs of the whole child while enhancing learning. We will provide a safe, nurturing learning environment while inspiring children to achieve academic potential as life long learners." The school's motto, "We're On Our Way With J.F.K." was suggested by the students of West Babylon, not long after the building opened.

The JFK staff works as a team to deliver high quality instruction that is aligned with our state learning standards. We are extremely proud of our school which has a well deserved reputation for excellence and friendliness. Please use this website as a resource for you, and your child.

The Happy to Help Club from John F. Kennedy Elementary School was recognized in April by Babylon officials including Town Supervisor Rich Schaffer, Councilman Terence McSweeney, Councilman Tony Martinez and Beautification Program Director Viscel Moore.

The Happy to Help Club has participated in various community service/cleanup events around town. They planned and organized all of the cleanup events. Some cleanup efforts included Anthony Sanchez Park and Straight Path and 18th Street. The club also collected and donated food and toiletries to the Senior High School food pantry.

Their efforts began in 2017 and they are still going strong. The district congratulates the Happy to Help Club members: Jenna Anson, Savannah Brustad, Sophia Corrigan, Scarlett Farrell, Kiera Fehr, Adelina Fitzgerald, Kelly Fitzgerald, Brooke Kelskey, Hailey Larso, Lia Margarita, Lily Ryder and Sadie Searage.
