New Rec Zone Programs

The JFK Rec Zone will be offering two new programs in the upcoming weeks.

The Beauty and Brains Modeling Club focuses on building student self-esteem, strengthening creative writing skills, learning marketing techniques, developing acting skills, all while having fun. At the end of the program students will then have a chance to showcase their hard work by putting on Fashion show (location TBD). The program is FREE and will run Mondays and Wednesdays from March 19th through June 7th, from 2:30 pm to 4:15 p.m. Space is limited to 25 participants, however students can sign-up for the program by visiting Rec Zone during lunch in the auxiliary gym, or after school in the cafeteria.
