On Thursday, January 20, 2011, JFK students met with Ms. Maloney and Ms. Zito to learn more about how they can "pay it forward" to others. They also discussed how that relates to JFK's character education program. The students viewed a recent episode of "Extreme Makeover: Home Edition" where a young boy, who was chosen to recieve a new house for his family, decided to "pay it forward" by giving his old house to another family. It was a very inspirational video. The students created buttons that pledged something that they would do for someone else to "pay it forward". They are looking forward to creating a chain reaction!
