The Italian group is getting ready “per fare bella figura” for JFK’s International Night 10 March 2011

JFK's International Festival

We are celebrating our diverse culture at John F. Kennedy Middle School by having an International Festival the evening of 10th of March (5:00pm - 8pm, location - JFK Gym). Our goal is to expose the school population, their families and the Utica Community to the wonderful diverse culture we have at JFK. We will have entertainment throughout the evening provided by some of the teachers and students at JFK and the Community of Utica. We will also have homemade samples of the food from our different cultures. We hope to see all of you at our festival!!! Our teachers, students, faculty, staff and parents have been working very enthusiastically to provide a fun-filled and memorable evening.
Ms. Tebano is the International Club advisor and festival chairperson.
