JFK Students Give Back with Holiday Care Packages


Students in the JFK classrooms of teachers Heather Ciurleo, John Colford, Jenny Dixon, Joseph Verdicchio and Jennifer Zylberberg spent time last month creating care packages for those in need during the holidays.

The students decorated bags, which were filled with scarves, gloves, hats, toothbrushes, toothpaste, chips and hand sanitizer. They also wrote notes to include in the packages. The bags were later donated to Community Presbyterian Church in Deer Park.

“We wanted the children to realize how important it was to also give back to the community during the holidays,” said Ciurleo.

JFK Art Students Participate in Doodle 4 Google

Students in Joanne Bibow-Buck's art classes participated in this year's "Doodle 4 Google" contest. The contest asks students in grades K-12 to create a doodle of the Google logo that fits the theme "What I see for the future." Their entries will be submitted to be judged against other students from all over the country. One winner's artwork will be featured on the Google homepage and that winner will also receive a $30,000 college scholarship. Please see the sideshow below for entries from JFK art students Fariza Abedin, Meghan Brown, Casey Giles, Madelyn Kleiber, Adithan Omprakash and Oviya Omprakash.
