JFK Students Observes National Unity Day

Make It Orange
And Make It End!!

Students and Staff at John F. Kennedy were encouraged to wear orange on Wednesday October 22, 2014 to celebrate National Unity Day.  Unity Day is a day to unite against bullying.

John F. Kennedy Elementary joined schools and communities around our nation to send one large message of SUPPORT, HOPE, AND UNITY.

Each 1st through 5th grade students received an orange paper strip. Students wrote a quality that makes them unique and proud of whom they are as individuals. The message is this — even though we are all different, we are all a part of this community.  The strips were glued together, resulting in one long, connected chain that visually represents the power of uniting for a common cause.

The student body and staff also signed a large banner titled "UNITE AGAINST BULLYING” as a pledge to do his/her part to end bullying.
