A Note from the Superintendent of Schools
Dear Caregivers: We enter this budget season without knowing the outcome of the Proposition 2 1/2 override vote. As always, we will advocate for the high priority needs of our schools. Obviously, we would be able to address those needs more effectively with additional funding from the override. We will plan for either outcome by preparing multiple budget scenarios this year. As is always the case, we will solicit input from the faculty, staff, students, and community members to help us determine priorities for our budget planning. We invite you to share your thoughts by responding to this survey which is posted on the district website and available directly at this link. Sincerely, John Provost, Ed.D.

Please provide a copy of this physical as soon as possible.

If refrigeration is needed, that’s not a problem. But, no desserts with nuts or peanut butter, thanks!


JFK PTO Fundraising: Teachers are our Shining Stars!
Here at JFK PTO our mission is to enrich a student’s academic experience by providing additional funding for a variety of programming. We send thanks to all our PTO families who have donated to our PTO so that we can support unique cultural academic programs that make our school special.

JFK PTO is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization, and all donations are tax-deductible. Gifts of any amount are deeply appreciated. 100% of every dollar donated directly benefits our students.

DONATE to support special programs at JFK (2 ways to donate!):
Write a check payable to JFK PTO. Add “Cultural Arts” to the memo line. 
Mail the check to: JFK PTO, 100 Bridge Road, Florence, MA 01062. 
OR: Send the check to school with your student to drop off in the office. 
Look for our online donation site at Mighty Cause: https://tinyurl.com/y529vnzp 

Would you like to donate in honor of a teacher or staff member at JFK? Just add a note to your donation check and we will make sure the teacher of your choice receives a certificate of appreciation noting the donation in their honor. Your donations help us help teachers, and we are so grateful for all the donations we have received so far. Be sure to get your tax-deductible donation in before the year is over.
