On Wednesday, October 14, 2020 and Wednesday, November 18, 2020, students joined Ms. Klein and Ms. McKweon through Google Meet to create handmade fishtail lanyards for their facemasks.  The lanyard will come in handy for when students take a break from wearing their masks and will relieve the students from removing the mask completely. Instead, the mask will hang from their neck. Printed directions were provided and Ms. Klein also created a WeVideo to help students understand each step.

The Virtual Show Goes On At JFK

Students at John F. Kennedy Middle School in the Bethpage School District recently worked in tandem with their music teachers and conductors to record a virtual spring concert for the school community. The seventh and eighth grade chorus, orchestra and band rehearsed and filmed their segments separately, which were then compiled into one schoolwide virtual performance. The concert also included the Bethpage Association of Music BAM Awards, which are awarded to eighth grade students for their dedication and commitment to music.

The John F. Kennedy music department would like to thank Principal Kevin Fullerton, Assistant Principal Erin Hayes, Mr. Christopher Attard and central administration for their commitment to continuing to nourish the music program during the 2020-21 school year.

 

Battling for Mount Olympus in Bethpage

Sixth graders dressed as Greek gods and goddesses for the Zeus Retires Debates. thumbnail184000

Sixth grade students in Monica Klein’s social studies class at John F. Kennedy Middle School participated in the 13th annual Zeus Retires Debates on May 17. Mrs. Klein’s father, Mr. Morselli, participates each year to act as Zeus, who has decided to retire from his position as the ruler of Mount Olympus and is seeking a worthy replacement.

Students dressed up as different Greek gods or goddesses and made their case as to why they should be the new ruler. From Aphrodite to Poseidon, each student memorized their propositions and included facts about the figures of Greek mythology. The class was then able to ask their opponents questions and have a formal debate. Zeus judged each participants’ performance and awarded the winner from each class with a special lightning bolt.
