    At Kennedy Elementary School we strive to spread kindness in the school and surrounding community through our "Kennedy Kindness" initiative. As a school community, we believe in educating the whole child to ensure each child reaches their full potential. As a school community, we will accomplish this daily through the district's new Social-Emotional Learning initiative and PEAK enrichment period. At Kennedy Elementary School we strive to meet the needs of all learners by providing students opportunities to collaborate, create, think critically, and problem-solve through the implementation of district initiatives.

    Kennedy Elementary School is also proud to announce that we are the recipients of a bronze medal, awarded by Sustainable Jersey for Schools. Thank you to the school community for all your hard work, dedication, and promise to sustainability. Let's aim high this year to build upon this hard work!
