Welcome - John F. Kennedy PTSA

2018-2019 President: Doug Mayfield


John F Kennedy High PTSA is the Parent Teacher Student Association on campus, which is part of the National PTA, America’s most powerful parent involvement and child/family advocacy organization. The purpose of JFK PTSA is to provide support for academic and social programs at Kennedy High School so our students can thrive and learn in an enriching environment. We help the teachers, students and administration build services that help the school have an outstanding curriculum. There are many exciting plans for the upcoming year, and we hope to gain support from Kennedy families to make these a reality.

We invite every parent/guardian, teacher, staff, student, relative, friend and neighbor to join JFK PTSA.  Our annual dues are $15 per person.

Your 100% tax deductible donation makes it possible to provide the many programs and resources that enrich our student’s experience at Kennedy. Suggested donation is $25 per family.

Make your personal donation worth more; inquire if your employer provides matching funds.

Join a committee or donate items. Your time is valuable, and we appreciate when you share it with us! Requests will be sent via by email and School Loop for volunteers to respond within SignUp Genius.
