LETTER: Proud of JFK School
On Feb. 7, Mr. Gerard, a third-grade teacher at JFK Elementary School, was honored as the Teacher of the Month. There was a school assembly and he was presented with a plaque and several gifts. He was honored by one of the local radio stations.
This was a very exciting and proud moment for the JFK staff and students. As regular Freeman readers are aware, this event was absent from your paper.
JFK has invited the Freeman to several events which you have chosen not to cover.
On Feb. 16, the Freeman had a picture of an event at Chambers Elementary School on the front page. The Freeman has covered many stories about many of Kingston’s elementary schools with the exception of JFK.
There is a misperception in this community about the JFK school. It is a great school with amazing students and some of the best teachers. With everything going on in this community with regards to the redistricting and the fact that some of the children may be moved to JFK, it would be great for this community to know about all the good things happening at JFK.
I, for one, am tired of the negative things said about JFK.
I am proud to have my children attend this school and would not want them anywhere else. Shame on the Freeman for not covering events all the schools equally.
