"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.

JFK Students Celebrate Diversity

First graders in Lisa DeGennaro’s class at John F. Kennedy Elementary School are learning about Martin Luther King Jr. and his dream of everyone being treated equally. The class read “The Crayon Box That Talked” by Shane Derolf. In the story, the crayons did not get along because they all looked different. However, when they worked together, they created a beautiful picture. The class created their own crayon box to display and wrote about how although they all look different, they can create a beautiful picture when they work together. 

JFK Kazoo Band
