TREP$ Program
Our Parent Teacher Organization (PTO) is seeking volunteers interested in training to run the TREP$ Program during the 2015-16 school year.  TREP$ is an innovative program that teaches children in grades 4 & 5 the basics of business ownership.  It ends with a TREP$ Marketplace where each child has the opportunity to apply what they have learned and to actually operate a business!  TREP$ has become a tradition at JFK that we would like to see continue, however we cannot do it without your help. 
Click here for information regarding this year’s TREP$ schedule as well as a description of the responsibilities of the volunteer staff.
If you are interested in training to run the TREP$ program during the 2015-16 school year, please e-mail Ms. Jenkins  at jodi.d.jenkins@hotmail.com.
