Guam - It's taking a community effort for the JFK Islanders to make their homecoming to the Tumon campus. With the scheduled July 15 completion of the new and improved John F. Kennedy High School, the Islanders are preparing to make the transition from Tiyan to Upper Tumon. 

"We're excite, Assistant Principal Dr. Barbara Roberto told KUAM News. "This has been a long journey for the islander family. We're so close to the finish line if you want to look at it that way. And it's just a matter of getting all our new equipment onto the new campus."

School staff and some parent volunteers were helping move desks, chairs, and other classroom equipment into containers provided by IBC for storage. Glenn Aguon has a teen that attends JFK, and said, "They need help they need more volunteers cause of the physical part. If they could get more volunteers to just move furniture. That would really help out."

About 40 JFK students showed up today to volunteer, excited about the new campus. "Moving to a new school is just pushing us to keep helping out," and, "We're really excited to come back to Tumon," were some of the comments the kids shared.

Volunteers can show up to the Tiyan campus at 7:30am o weekdays. For more information, call 642-2100. A ribbon cutting ceremony for the Tumon campus is scheduled for August 6 at 10am.
