John F. Kennedy’s mission is to develop our island students to become globally primed high achievers.
Our ESLRs: John F. Kennedy High School students will be responsible citizens, problem solvers, effective communicators, and technologically literate.
¥ We are off to a great start this year! Welcome to JFKHS! To the Counseling Department and Marcie Aguigui, our Computer Operator – thank you for the seamless morning with student schedules.
¥ Students are to see their teachers to complete a Schedule Change form. Teachers please ensure that at the end of the day you submit the forms to the Counseling Office.
¥ Islanders, if you are repeating a class you have already passed, please do not repeat the class! You will not get a credit for it. That goes for Night school and Summer school classes, too, that you passed! See your counselor by filling out an Add/Drop form today."
¥ If you are interested in playing golf for our school, please see Mr. Mendoza during lunch in D218 today.
¥ All car riders are to meet their rides at the cafeteria drop-off point after school.
o The school bulletin will be published two times a week (Tuesdays and Thursdays). If you wish to place an announcement in the bulletin, it must be submitted electronically to Dr. Adamos, Principal (firstname.lastname@example.org) before 12:00 noon of the workday prior to publication. Submission of announcements later than the noon deadline will be honored on the next day of publication and, if approved, will run in four consecutive bulletins.
o Student submissions must be acknowledged by the advisor/teacher/coach.
o In our efforts to conserve paper and maximize technology, the school bulletin will be emailed to the faculty and staff.
The main purpose of the student orientation is to provide students with the information, support and resources necessary to begin their academic journey at John F. Kennedy High School
