Badminton Battle At JFK


Students and staff of John F. Kennedy Middle School took to the badminton court on Nov. 3 to raise more than $500 for the Special Olympics.

From Oct. 26 through Nov. 1, students could purchase raffle tickets during their lunch periods to join the badminton tournament. At the end of the purchasing period, those with winning ticket numbers could ask a JFK teacher or faculty member to be on their team. 

On the day of the tournament, a total of 23 participants, dressed in matching uniforms, enjoyed an afternoon of friendly competition, exercise and community involvement.  
The district extends its gratitude to physical education teacher Alyssa Kildare for organizing the tournament.
