School Song Contest Winners
This March, to celebrate “Music In our Schools Month”,  twenty-eight of our students participated in the “JFK School Song” Contest.  The students learned that like poetry, creating lyrics involves rhyme schemes and meter. The boys and girls from Grades 3, 4, and 5 worked alone and in groups  with  guidance from Vocal/General Music teacher Mrs. Douthat to craft  lyrics that showed their pride and love for JFK School. Ms. Meyers, Mr. Cano,  Mrs. Lintes, and Ms. Rossi  had a tough time deciding which of the 16 entries were the best--  all of the students who participated did a great job! The entry created by Andrea Fitzgerald and Leah Kleinstein won first place— the whole school will be singing their lyrics for years to come! Congratulations!
