Dear Families,

Welcome to November! I feel like the first few months of school have gone by so quickly.

At JFK, the beginning of November means that we are getting closer to the Winter Concert. Each year, our music teacher and classroom teachers work incredibly hard with the students to put on a school-wide evening performance. The entire school sings a few song together, and each grade sings a song on their own. The performance is an evening performance that takes place in the Gym.

The gym is not ideal for a performance of this size because of the acoustics. However, the event is incredibly well attended and it is the only space that will hold everyone! The acoustics mean that people who are talking in the audience can be heard by everyone. It years past it has been very difficult to hear the performances. Please support our students’ hard work by showing appropriate audience behavior, and ensuring that all children that are not performing are well supervised. This way we can all enjoy their hard work!

The performance is  December 14th. Students that are performing should arrive at 6pm, and brought to their classrooms. The performance starts at 6:30.

Have a wonderful weekend.

Sara Raabe

JFK Principal
