The Bear Ate Your Sandwich

This year’s campaign book, “The Bear Ate Your Sandwich” by Julia Sarcone-Roach, is a classic tale of a bear’s epic journey and the mystery surrounding one delicious sandwich.

Dear J.F.K. Parents & Guardians,

It is with much excitement and great anticipation to welcome you to the 2016 – 2017 school year as Principal of the John F. Kennedy Elementary School. I trust that all of you have enjoyed the change of pace that the summer brings to refresh and rejuvenate.  We are looking forward to working together with you to ensure another productive and successful school year at the John F. Kennedy School.

Student Arrival and Dismissal Procedures – If you are dropping off/picking up, please park on Mount Vernon Avenue. If you plan on using the front loop, please do not park your car inside the loop as this impedes our arrival/dismissal process and is dangerous to other families dropping off/picking up. Additionally, once your student(s) have safely exited on the curb side, please pull away from the curb to allow space for other families still arriving.

NotePlease remember to bring photo ID when picking up your student(s).

If you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at or the Main Office Secretary; Janett Masterson at or via phone (856) 767-9480 ext. 1310.
