Welcome from Principal

Autumn Baltimore, Principal of JF Kennedy School
 

 

Welcome to John F. Kennedy School where the mighty Eagles S.O.A.R. Here at JFK, we have  pride and passion for academic excellence, equity at all times, and a positive school culture. Each student, family and staff member is a part of our diverse community where we focus on respect, responsibility, and safety. 

I am excited to embark on this new adventure of helping students succeed, growing teacher leaders, and fostering a collaborative relationship with families and our community. Providing opportunities for all to succeed is a JFK high priority and collectively our school will continue to rise to the top. It is important to remember that all of our JFK students have unique gifts and talents. Therefore, one of our major priorities is providing spaces where our students can learn based on their specific needs. With a strong data-driven core, JFK ensures every student in our learning community has access to diverse interventions, rigorous curriculum, and high-levels of class engagement. JFK’s whole child approach allows us to put our students at the center of their learning. Therefore, as we all face worldly challenges, it is essential that our leadership team and staff continue to focus on the social and emotional support systems for our students.

Making connections is key at JFK, and we strive to ensure all students are connected to a caring adult. Our Eagle staff is committed to supporting students and families in and outside of the classroom.  As we embark on this new year and new normal, I am looking forward to working and learning together with our JFK family.
