The Kennedy PTO provides a 501(c)(3) tax exempt legal framework to support or enable many of the enrichment programs at Kennedy Middle School, including the drama and music programs, 8th grade graduation events, and community events.

The PTO also supports a broader set of important programs that are integral to our school community:

The Kennedy Family Center

Offers a wide range of programs to support members of our community with immediate academic and emotional needs.  It is a wonderful complement to the solid academic foundations delivered by our teachers and staff, and exemplifies the sense of solidarity and community we all aspire to. Learn more about the Kennedy Family Center.

The Art Program

Art is a popular elective choice many years in a row. Kennedy is lucky to have a full art studio, including a ceramic kiln on site. We are equally lucky to have an amazing art teacher, Jesse Silverman, who holds an M.A. in Interdisciplinary Education with an Art emphasis. Learn more about the Kennedy Art Program.

Kennedy Maker Space

Run by technology teacher and coach Suba Marti, the Maker Space is an exciting place for students to explore hands-on learning in Technology, Robotics, and Journalism classes, and Robotics and Maker space clubs. Learn more about the Kennedy Maker Space.


None of this can happen without your support and generosity, and we’re looking to raise up to $30,000 to support these great programs. Please consider whatever generous contribution fits your personal financial situation, whether it is $25, $100, $500, or $2000 . Every dollar helps!
