The School Council is an advisory group chaired by Principal Wilson. Members include parents,
guardians, community members and teachers. The council meets monthly to discuss ways to strengthen
JFK, exchange ideas, and share school information. Dates for each meeting are posted on the school
calendar. The council meets the third Thursday of the month unless the day is a vacation or non-school
