Mission Statement 

To promote a middle school environment where the academic, social, emotional, and physical needs of all students are addressed through respect, pride, and a commitment to quality and excellence.


November 2019

As the month of October drew to a close, there were several noteworthy events that I would like to mention.   Congratulations to 47 of our RPMS Eighth Grade students for their induction into the National Junior Honor Society.  These students met or exceeded the criteria for admittance into this prestigious organization by demonstrating excellence in the areas of:  academics, character, service, leadership and citizenship.  We finished out the month with our advisory “scarecrow building” activity and have proudly displayed every advisory’s handiwork our courtyard.  Additionally, the PTA organized an Anti-Bully BMX bike assembly.  Students learned strategies to help peers handle bullying situations, as well as, be treated to some amazing bicycle stunts performed in the RPMS gym by the Dialed Action Bike Stunt team. 

The month of November is shaping up to be quite busy.  Staff members will be attending professional development conferences on Tuesday, November 5th is Election Day, but due to the fact that voters will be in the building during the day, school will not be in session for students.  On November 7th, the RPMS is proud to host our first Veteran’s Day Assembly.  Eighth grade teacher, John Mauceri has worked to create an event to honor veterans from the Rocky Point VFW and Stony Brook Veteran’s home.  The event will feature several student speakers and musical performances by our Select Chorus and Eighth Grade combined Band and Orchestra.  Rocky Point Student Support Services (RPSSS) formerly known as ICARE are scheduled to commence on  Monday, November 4th.  Please feel free to check with your child’s guidance counselor with any questions related to RPSSS.  Incredibly enough, the first marking period comes to a close on November 8th.  Student report cards will be posted to the parent portal on November 15th.  A specially designed Advisory scheduled for November 19th will help students examine their academic strengths and weaknesses and create their own student improvement plans. 

Stay informed about your child’s grades, attendance and assignments.  Remember to check the Parent Portal for up-to-date grade reporting and student attendance.  Monitor your child’s current assignments by viewing our teacher eBoard pages that are accessible through the http://rockypointufsd.org/ website.  Individual teacher eBoards provide a direct line of contact via email to your child’s teacher.   If you have questions about assignments or grades, it is most helpful to reach out to our child’s teacher first.  If there are questions in multiple classes, feel free to contact your child’s guidance counselor via email or at 631-849-6028.  

Reminder, 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  (7:35AM-7:55AM) will take place at the back High School tennis court area.

Respectfully,

James Moeller, Principal
