News & Announcements

Thanks to JFK Rotary Club & Jet Blue!

Three elementary classes had an incredible time at the JFK Rotary Club's annual children's holiday party. The kids met Elsa & Anna, danced with a reindeer, played "duck, duck, goose" with a snowman and had mock sword fights with Sparky the Islander's dragon. And, what could be better than watching Santa and his elves descend from an airplane to join the festivities! Check out our Facebook page for more photos.
