Kennedy Students Participate in National Screen-Free Week 

Kennedy Teachers Serving at Ice Cream Social

ROXBURY, NJ (May 16, 2019) – Roxbury’s Kennedy Elementary School PTA helped the PreK-4 students celebrate National Screen-Free Week from Game Night at Kennedy School  April 29th through May 3rd by providing fun family activities each night at the school to encourage the Kennedy Cougars to turn off their tablets and turn on life! 

Local businesses came out to take part in the activities. Each night of the week featured a different activity including Tae Kwon Do, dance lessons, building crafts, gymnastics, and even an ice cream social to end the week with Kennedy School teachers scooping for the kids. 

Kennedy PTA President Gina Recchia shared, “The week brought many smiles and lots of laughter and no electronics were needed!” 

According to, “National Screen-Free Week is an annual invitation to play, explore, and rediscover the joys of life beyond ad-supported screens…thousands of families, schools, and communities around the world will put down their entertainment screens for seven days of fun, connection, and discovery.”
