Dear Parents and Guardians:

Welcome to a new school year at the Rocky Point Middle School! I am extremely excited to be starting this year as Interim Principal after spending the past 21 years as the Assistant Principal, a sixth grade teacher and a coach, all in the Rocky Point School District. Joining me as Interim Assistant Principal is Mrs. Dawn Meyers, who has worked in the middle school as a seventh grade math teacher since the building opened. We are looking forward to being reacquainted with many parents and students, as well as, meeting our first time parents and students as they embark on the middle school experience. Please consider this letter the first step towards establishing a strong and effective working relationship between home and school. This year at RPMS, we will continue to encourage all children to embrace the values of “tradition, excellence, and pride” in their daily choices and interactions. We are committed to helping every child grow as learners and adolescents. Our dedicated staff will do everything they can to make this year a special time of growth and development academically, as well as, socially and emotionally for every student.

At the RPMS, we strive to meet the needs of all students by promoting opportunities for their social, emotional, academic, and physical growth. Students will learn to balance their academic responsibilities with extracurricular activities. We encourage our students to get involved in many facets of our school life, whether it is attending clubs, participating in athletics, or involving themselves in groups such as the Shared Decision Committee. It is very important that students are involved in all aspects of middle school life. These opportunities will help them grow in many ways and prepare them for their young adult lives.

I look forward to maintaining open lines of communication with you as a means to provide assistance and leadership in the hopes of creating an experience that is both memorable and successful in terms of social, emotional and academic growth. This kind of experience is only possible with an equal commitment, cooperation and interaction among students, parents and staff. Please be sure to update any and all emergency information on the parent portal during the first week of school, as well as, keeping our Health Office informed. Providing updated parent/guardian e-mail addresses will ensure that you receive the monthly newsletter and other important information.

As in the past, please note that “0” period music ensemble (chorus, band, orchestra) will meet on Tuesdays and Fridays from 7:15 AM - 7:57 AM. These classes are coded as Period 10 on student schedules. Students should be dropped off at the Middle School front entrance for any “0” period classes (Music and Extra Help). Bus transportation continues to be available for “0” period music classes and extra help sessions (Wednesdays/Thursdays). Regular student drop off (7:35 AM-7:55 AM) will take place at the back High School tennis court area.

We know that the 2018-2019 school year will be a year of excitement and achievement. Working together as a school and community partnership, we can ensure that all students are successful.
We look forward to seeing you at Open House, Thursday, September 20th.

James Moeller, Interim Principal
