Dear RPHS Parents and Families,

I hope your Thanksgiving holiday was filled with the warmth of family and close friends, along with reflection and gratitude. I am certainly thankful for the opportunity to work with the wonderful students, staff and families here at Rocky Point High School.

In early November, our students closed out the first marking period in which 215 students earned a grade point average over 95% and were included on the Principal’s List!  We also had many students earn Honor Roll and High Honor Roll this first quarter as well.  I am very proud of the effort put forth by our students and am certainly grateful for the support and commitment from our staff and parents as well.  I am hopeful to see our students grow and develop further in this second marking period.  If you have yet to view your student’s progress from the first marking period, please log onto the PARENT PORTAL.    

This past month, our students had many opportunities to engage in the classroom, raise money to support local charity organizations and get involved in a variety of winter extracurricular activities to enrich their day. As part of our Salute to Veterans Week, students and staff purchased red ribbons and participated in our Volleyball for Vets tournament.  By Veterans Day, the students raised close to $1000 to be donated to our local VFW Post 6249.  As a recent tradition in the building, the Art Honor Society ran their annual food drive encouraging students and staff to purchase feathers and drumsticks on Mr. Gobbles-the-Turkey.  With many generous donations, the students were able to raise hundreds of dollars to purchase grocery gift cards for local needy families prior to the Thanksgiving Holiday. Additionally, our Interact Club ran their annual Holiday Shoebox Gift Drive.  With hard work put forth by our club members and generosity from our school community, Interact was able to send out 48 gift boxes to needy families around the world. 

Finally, this past month marked a new chapter for our students to get engaged in extracurricular activities.  Winter sports tryouts began on November 14th and auditions for the spring musical, Guys and Dolls, began as well.  We continue to encourage our students to get involved and enrich their day with athletics, performing arts and/or after-school clubs.  I am excited to see our students perform in the athletic arena and on the stage in the coming weeks!

As we are now into the month of December, the building is beginning to fill with a festive atmosphere as the holiday season is approaching.  I would like to remind our students to stay focused on learning and disciplined in their work and study habits amidst all of the seasonal distractions and celebrations. Please encourage your children to attend extra help in courses where they may need further support.  Attendance is a crucial element for academic success. Please take time to reinforce with your children the importance of arriving on time to school each day.  Additionally, I would like to remind and encourage our students and families to frequently check the PARENT PORTAL


Please see below for our upcoming December events:

  • December 6th - Challenge Day Program at RPHS
  • December 22nd - Spring Drivers Education Application and Registration Fee is Due
  • December 22nd - Winter Concert 
  • December 23rd - January 2nd - Winter Recess – School reopens on Tuesday January 3rd, 2023

This is a time of year to remember and embrace those who enrich our lives. I would like to thank you for your continued support and involvement. 

I wish you a wonderful holiday season and a happy and healthy new year.


Best Regards,

Jonathan Hart
Principal

Senior Spearheads Change in Athletic Community

Be the change you want to see in the world: Rocky Point High School senior Alexa Kuhn is doing just that and getting others on board her mission.

Messages of positivity, hope and help adorn a bulletin board at Rocky Point High School, courtesy of Alexa. A defender on the varsity field hockey team, Alexa headed up a student-organized game to bring awareness to Morgan’s Message, a story of a young woman’s life that amplifies resources and expertise to confront student-athlete mental health, builds a community by and for student-athletes and provides a platform for advocacy.

Alexa was instrumental in organizing her teammates in a recent field hockey competition against Sacred Heart Academy for a nonleague game of action for Morgan’s Message, winning the game 3-2.

Alexa will continue to share and promote the work of the organization at the high school level, taking action to help eliminate the stigma surrounding mental health within the student-athlete community.
