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.

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.

Seniors Walk Down Memory Lane

Seniors Walk Down Memory Lane photo

West Babylon Senior High School’s Class of 2018 took a walk down memory lane, literally, when they returned to their respective elementary schools for a senior walk on June 11.

Dressed in their caps and gowns, the seniors walked the elementary school hallways before concluding their academic journey in West Babylon. School district administrators, teachers and elementary students lined the hallways in each building to offer their congratulations and well wishes as the seniors begin the next phase of their lives. 

At Tooker Avenue, Forest Avenue, John F. Kennedy, Santapogue and South Bay elementary schools, the soon-to-be graduates had a chance to reconnect with their former teachers and staff, look at old class photographs and reminisce.

Students in Autumn Matthews’ first-grade class at John F. Kennedy Elementary School combined creativity with the power of technology using the Osmo Creative Set. Students worked in small groups to create animated stories with Osmo Monster by choosing their adventures and designing items to be pulled into their stories. This activity targeted skills such as collaboration, creativity, critical thinking and communication.
