Kennedy Elementary School is a treasured institution within the Butte Community, as it is the last elementary school left on the “hill”. The community support for this school is overwhelming and its student success is celebrated not only by the 300 families it serves, but also by the “old-timers” the few remaining icons left from a proud mining generation. Kennedy Elementary was built in 1958 and was originally named “The Big Butte School”. In 1963 the school name was changed to the JF Kennedy Elementary School. At the dedication ceremony, Senator Mike Mansfield presented to Principal “Oakie” O’Connor, the flag that flew at half mast over the White house during the funeral of President Kennedy.
