Who We Are

Through our Parent-Teacher Organization (P.T.O.), our school receives many educational gifts in the areas of books, field trip monies, special cultural programs and fantastic family fun nights! Each child at Kennedy is enriched by the many opportunities offered by our P.T.O. group. We hope that you will take the time to be part of this wonderful organization.  The P.T.O. meets the second Thursday of the month in the Kennedy Elementary library from 6:30-7:30.

You can become involved in the P.T.O. by emailing us at, or by simply attending a P.T.O. meeting.  Meeting dates and times are listed in the calendar.
