The John F. Kennedy Elementary School PTA held a special Kindergarten Parent Breakfast on the morning of Sept. 20. PTA President Tracy Rice, Vice President Susan Kavanagh, council delegate Danielle Maccarino, and the membership team, Louise Kniff and Kelly Caragiulo, welcomed the newest parents to the school. Refreshments and tasty treats – including homemade coffeecake – were arrayed in the school’s cafeteria and useful information was presented in a sociable setting.
“It was so nice to see such a wonderful turnout of kindergarten parents,” said Rice. “We like to host this informal event so that parents who may have children entering school for the first time can relax and meet other parents like themselves."
“I remember how intimidating it was when I first came to a PTA meeting,” recalled Kavanagh. “It is so important to everyone on our board at JFK to make sure that all our new parents feel genuinely welcome and comfortable.”
