This year, 2017, marks the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy High School opening.

There will be a Gala on Saturday, Sept. 30 from 6:30 until 10 p.m. to celebrate the past 50 years. All former and current Kennedy students are encouraged to attend. The Gala will be held in the west gym at Kennedy High School.

Along with the Gala, Kennedy will continue to have its homecoming parade. All floats will be designed around the 50th celebration theme. This parade will take place on Sept. 27 at Kennedy and the surrounding streets at 5:30 p.m.

Sticking with the 50th anniversary theme, many past homecoming kings and queens will be attending the homecoming football game at Kingston at 7 p.m. to present this year’s Queen and King with their crowns. Kennedy’s alumni choir will also be coming back and singing Kennedy’s Alma Mater at the game.

Everyone is invited to attend these events and congratulate Kennedy on a great 50 years.
