High School Students Engage in Summer of Research

High School Students Engage in Summer of Research photo
Several Rocky Point High School students had the chance to participate in cutting-edge science research this summer as part of Brookhaven National Laboratory's High School Research Program. 

Students were selected to participate in this competitive six-week summer program after completing an application and securing recommendations. They each spent the summer doing research under the direction of a mentor at the lab, and presented their work at a poster session held in mid-August. Funding for the program comes from the U.S. Department of Energy. 

The following students took part in this premier program: 

Allen Liu and Bryant Liu
Mentor: Shinjae Yoo
“Drug Effect Discovery on Brain Imaging Data”

Kyle Markland
Mentor: John Biemer
“Improving the Power Usage Effectiveness of BNL's Scientific Data and Computing Center”

Jade Pinkenburg
Mentor: Martin Purschke
“Evaluation of the Neutron and Antineutron Measurement Capabilities of the sPHENIX Colorimeter System”

High School Schedules and Schedule Changes

August 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Your child’s schedule for the 2017-2018 school year will be available on the eSchool parent portal after 3 PM on August 17th. On the first day of school, your child should report to first period as indicated on his/her schedule. A final copy of the schedule will be given to each student at this time.

Please note the grade level of your child. Students move to the next grade level based on the number of credits earned. If your child remained on the same grade level as last year, there is strong reason for concern. This does not necessarily mean that your child cannot graduate with his/her class. It simply means that he/she did not have enough credits to be “moved up” to the next grade level. The schedule of any student who attended summer school will be adjusted when the grades are received.

Due to increased enrollment and state mandated programs, there is very little flexibility for class changes. The only reason to meet with a counselor is to correct an error on the schedule (ie. wrong class, wrong level). Corrections will be made on a first-come, first-served basis as follows:

Monday, August 21st for 12th grade students (8:30 a.m.- 11:30 a.m.)
Tuesday, August 22nd for 11th grade students (8:30 a.m.- 11:30 a.m.)
Wednesday, August 23rd for 10th grade students (8:30 a.m.- 11:30 a.m.)
Thursday, August 24th for 9th grade students (Following 9th grade orientation)


Regarding Changes: Counselors are NOT permitted to make
TEACHER changes or LUNCH period changes.

I hope you enjoy the rest of the summer and I look forward to seeing your children in September.

Sincerely,

Susann Crossan
Principal

Moving Up to Begin A New Chapter

Moving Up to Begin A New Chapter Pic

With the sun shining brightly, Rocky Point Middle School eighth-grade students marched past proud parents, friends and district administrators to take their prominent seats across the back lawn of the school and signal the start of this year’s moving-up ceremony.

During the event, many students were individually recognized as they were presented with departmental awards of recognition, state honors from the Comptroller’s and Attorney General’s office as well as certificates acknowledging their outstanding character traits and community service efforts.

Graduating eighth-grader Maya Menon was selected as this year’s moving-up day speaker and, in her address, shared memories from the students’ middle school years and a hope for a prosperous future.

Before celebrating their accomplishments at the eighth-grade picnic and yearbook distribution ceremony, each student was called to the front of the podium to receive their official moving up day certificates.
