To commemorate the 50th anniversary of John F. Kennedy’s assassination, Mrs. Murphy’s social studies class researched the president’s life and wrote biographies. Several topics were included: early years and family, education, work and military experience, political career, and the assassination in Dallas, Texas on November 22, 1963. In a section called, “Where Were You?”, students recorded the memories they listened to during personal interviews. By special invitation, eighth graders Anna, Jalen, Cole, and Katie shared their knowledge of President Kennedy’s life with the students in Mrs. Noyes’ class.
Grades 3-8 held a moment of silence on Friday afternoon to remember Mr. Kennedy and his accomplishments.
The biographies were printed and are now on display in the hallway at school. Please stop in, if you can, and take a few moments to see our work and recall this pivotal event in United States history.
