JFK Students, Tanger Making a Difference


Students in John F. Kennedy Intermediate School’s “Let’s Make a Difference” club recently visited the new Tanger at the Arches center in Deer Park where they were among the first students to take the ice on the center’s new skating rink. Deer Park School District officials were joined by JFK Principal Susan Bonner and club advisors to accept a check of $500 from Tanger, which will be used for club activities. Town of Babylon officials were also on hand to commend the students for their efforts. The “Let’s Make a Difference” club organizes and supports a multitude of community outreach programs that not only benefit those in need, but teaches students to give of themselves in a positive manner.

Deer Park Superintendent of Schools Elizabeth Marino accepted a $500 donation from Tanger at the Arches from General Manager Curt Fickeisen for JFK Intermediate School’s “Let’s Make a Difference” club. Babylon Town Clerk Carol Quirk, “Let’s Make a Difference” club advisors Julianne Rotunno and Joyce Carmen, JFK Principal Susan Bonner, Babylon Town Supervisor Steve Bellone, Babylon Town Councilman Tony Martinez and Deer Park Board of Education President Dennis Ryan holding JFK Student Council President with JFK students in the background joined the winter celebration.
