PRINCIPAL'S MESSAGE

 

April 2021

Dear FJC Families, 

Welcome back from Spring Break!  We hope you and your families had a chance to reconnect and spend precious time together.  We are re-energized and excited for the beautiful spring weather and additional opportunities to learn and play outside.  

During the month of April, we will be celebrating the importance of education and choosing a career path, culminating in our College and Career week.  We invite everyone to show their excitement for the future by participating in the following spirit days...

Monday, April 26th 
“A success is what I am going to be!”- dress up as a possible future career
Tuesday, April 27th 
“Reporting for duty...the military is just right for me!”- wear camo, or red/white/blue
Wednesday, April 28th 
“We have big dreams!”- wear your pajamas (no slippers please)
Thursday, April 29th 
“I am geared up for college!”- wear college/university gear
Friday, April 30th 
“Our future starts here!”- wear your FJC/Rocky Point apparel

Throughout the week we will also be showing videos to the students about different careers.  We are looking for parents and guardians who are willing to record a brief (3-5 minute) video describing their career for our amazing young students.

The following questions should be answered in kid-friendly language: 
1. What is your name?
2. Describe your career/profession.
3. What do you like best about your job?
4. Any fun facts about your career that you’d like to share.

If you are willing and able, please send the recorded video responses to 
Jamie Adamski- FJC Guidance Counselor by April 19th.

We are equally excited for our Kindergarten Screening that will happen in-person the week of April 19th-23rd.  If you are a parent or guardian of an incoming kindergartner and have not yet registered for Kindergarten screening, please give the school a call so that we can set you up with a time.

As we grow closer to the end of year activities and beginning of summer, we want to take a moment to thank you all for your continued support and encouragement.  Our community continues to shine and it is the work of all that make FJC the place to be!


Gratefully yours, 

 

Jason Westerlund, Principal

Linda Greening, Assistant Principal

Inclement Weather When school is closed due to inclement weather, bad road conditions, or other emergencies, please listen to one of the following radio/TV stations for the announcements regarding Rocky Point Schools:
WALK Storm Center 97.5 FM WBLI /WBAB Storm Center 106.1 FM WRCN 103.9 FM NEWS 12 LI

Connect-ED
The Rocky Point Union Free School District uses Connect-ED, a school-to-parent telephone notification system, as part of our efforts to communicate more effectively with parents or guardians. Connect-ED will enable the Rocky Point Union Free School District to notify families immediately in the event of a snow day or school-wide emergency. The system can deliver up to 3,000 messages within minutes—ensuring that you quickly know what's going on. To receive these messages, FJC must have your up-to-date contact information. If you move, change jobs, or obtain a new cell phone number, be sure to log onto the eSchool Parent Portal to update your information so you won't miss a single Connect-ED message.

Two-Hour Delayed Opening
When road conditions in the early morning are hazardous but are expected to improve rapidly as the morning progresses, the District may utilize a two-hour delayed opening for all schools. Students will report to their bus stops exactly two hours later than they normally would. Dismissal for all schools will be at their normal times. This delayed opening may also be used for other emergencies. Notice of the delayed opening will be made as early as possible and broadcast on the listed radio stations and TV-Cablevision News 12 and the District's Connect-ED Telephone Notification System will be activated. In the event that we cannot transport students to school as a result of a “two-hour delayed opening” based on forecast predictions for improved weather and conditions by 7 AM, school officials will announce that schools will be closed. It is important that you continue to listen carefully for just such announcements.

Inclement Bus Stops
Inclement weather bus stops are available on the eSchool Parent Portal. Due to the geographic nature of our area, “inclement” weather stops will be utilized when adverse road conditions exist. At various times during the winter season, inclement weather bus stops will be used to ensure the safety of our student population. The use of these stops may be necessary at any time during the school day, without prior announcement. Parents should listen to the radio stations or call First Student Transit at 744-2204 if they have any questions regarding whether or not the Inclement Weather Bus Stops will be used. The district's voice mail will also have the announcement. Please make arrangements for someone to meet children at these alternate stops.

 


 

Fairy Tales with a Twist!

Fairy Tales with a Twist! Photo thumbnail182314
In a fun literary lesson in FJC, students learned to take a classic fairy tale and brand it as their own, with a twist. Second graders in Ms. Kathy Guerrisi’s class chose among at least five books and created some inspired fractured fairy tales using the story of the Three Little Pigs. They revised the well-known fable by taking one of its elements – the plot, the setting, the characters or the ending – and using their imaginations and even pieces of real life, turned their stories into more contemporary versions. Not only did the lesson enrich their understanding of story setting, point of view, conflict and resolution, it brought many giggles among their classmates.
