Welcome
"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.

Today, J.F.K. houses approximately seventy-five staff members who work as a team to deliver instruction that is aligned to the Common Core State Standards for 374 students. We are proud of our award winning school with a well deserved reputation, for excellence and friendliness. Please use this website as a resource for you, and your child.

‘Treasuring’ New Friendships

‘Treasuring’ New Friendships Pic
Second-grade students in Mrs. Steffens’ and Mrs. Dewhirst’s classes at John F. Kennedy Elementary School created treasure boxes as a way of getting to know each other during the first weeks of school. The two classes joined together to decorate the boxes and then presented the treasures to each other. After reading a book about a treasure chest, the two teachers also shared their treasure chests so the students could get to know their teachers better.
