JFK’s outstanding art program was honored again, with 17 students from grades three to five chosen to have their artwork matted, framed and displayed for three weeks in March at the annual Suffolk County Art Leaders Association Children’s Art Show at Babylon’s Old Town Hall.

This is the third year in a row that JFK has participated in the SCALA show, held in cooperation with the Babylon Citizens Council of the Arts. The young artists, their parents and district educators attended a SCALA awards ceremony and reception at Old Town Hall on March 21. 

Normally, each SCALA member school is invited to submit only five artworks representing the best from their school from kindergarten through eighth grade.

“I was very flattered when we were asked to submit more than the allotted five pieces per school,” said JFK art teacher Laurie Schwartz. “The artwork from the JFK building has been so outstanding and it looked great in this special show.”
