From the Desk of the Principal
 
 Principal Dziengue
 
 

Welcome to a new school year! Our new theme for John F. Kennedy Middle School is,
 
“Staying the Course, Going Deeper, Reaching Higher”.
 
This year, we will build on the success we achieved together during the 2012-13 school year.  While we celebrate these facts from our current students who met or exceeded the standards:
 
  • ELA 88% 
  • Reading 93%
  • Mathematics 83%
  • Science 65%
  • Social Studies 64%
Our job is not over until we have 100% of our students exceeding expectations. Hence we recognize the need to ensure we are fully prepared on a daily basis to provide our students with rich and robust learning experiences that prepare them for success in college and beyond.   
 
We will imbed the 7-Habits of Highly Effective Teens, by Steven Covey into our daily rituals and routines, in and out of the classroom, to support our students academically and behaviorally. We will work collaboratively to build on and enhance student learning by: 
  • Committing to communication techniques in a variety of situations to proactively inform, network, and collaborate with parents/guardians on a regular basis.
  • Committing to instructional excellence and creating a positive learning environment.  
  • Committing to “sharpening our saw” by implementing high yield strategies and fully engaging in Professional Learning Communities (PLC).
  • Committing to partnering with parents, business partners and the community.

I look forward to the year that awaits us. I believe that, if we work together, this will be the best year ever.

Sincerely,

Ms. Andrea Dziengue, Interim Principal
