Perseverance Prize at JFK


After absorbing February’s Book of the Month, Ellen Levine’s “Henry’s Freedom Box: A True Story from the Underground Railroad”, which focused on the character trait of perseverance, each class at East Islip’s John F. Kennedy Elementary School selected a “Star of the Month” student who exemplified that trait.

“These students possess the quality that allows them to persevere and continue trying, even though the task is difficult,” said Principal Aileen O’Rourke.
