2017 Varsity Sports Dinner Information

May 2017

Dear Parents/Guardians:

Warmer weather is here and many outdoor activities are taking place. It is hard to believe that another school year is ending and we are in full gear preparing for end of year exams, events and activities. I encourage you to speak with you children about finishing the school year strong by being actively engaged in classroom lessons, review activities, and end of year assignments. It is important that you check your children’s grades on the parent portal regularly and contact individual teachers if you have any concerns.

I would like to ask for your assistance with students adhering to our dress code as defined in the code of conduct. During this time of year, some students begin to wear brief garments, as the weather gets nicer. If a student is wearing clothing deemed inappropriate, he/she will be asked if they have something acceptable to put on from their locker. If this is not possible, the student will call a parent for a change of clothing. I would like to thank you in advance for helping us create an environment fee from distractions.

This year the Junior Prom will take place at the North Hampton Building at East Wind in Wading River on Friday, May 19, 2017. The students must report to the high school gymnasium by 6:00 p.m. and use the school provided transportation to the prom. A photographer will be attending the prom to capture many special memories with classmates. Photographs will be available to purchase online after the event.

Upcoming events at Rocky Point High School include:
May 1st – 12th AP Exams
May 19th Junior Prom at East Wind
May 16th Annual school budget vote – HS Gymnasium
May 17th Art Show
May 18th Mark Twain Dinner at The Meadow Club
May 23rd Spring Concert

I look forward to seeing you at many of the upcoming events and activities.

Susann Crossan, Principal

“The mission of Rocky Point High School is to empower our students to be ready to learn,
to be ready for life, and to have the courage to do what is right”

 Positive Attitude and Actions will make a difference!
“Better happens when nobody’s watching.”

Stay to the right: -when you walk in the halls, when you drive in your car, and when you make decisions,
Always remember to do what is RIGHT!

Be polite: -use words like please, thank-you, and excuse me
-practice good listening techniques and develop patience

Keep it clean: -have pride in our facility; keep the building, the cafeteria and your lockers clean
-use clean language; using inappropriate curse words reflect your character

Lock it don’t lose it:
-you are responsible to spin the dial and lock your locker after each use
-cell phones need to be turned off and out of sight during the school day

Watch your web: -college admissions, coaches/recruiters and employers all search and review social media
-be conscientious of what you post on Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter
-inappropriate, hurtful posts on social media that disrupt our learning environment will
result in disciplinary action

Dress your best: -clothing that is too revealing or distasteful is not acceptable
-school is where you work and learning is your job; your dress should reflect this

Nothing but nice: -comments don’t have to be mean or hurtful
-if criticisms are not constructive, please keep them to yourself until you are able to restate
them in a positive way

Enhance your transcript and résumé each day:
-your transcript is a reflection of your ability and work ethic; work towards the most
advanced diploma possible
-your résumé summarizes your character and leadership qualities including
extra-curricular activities, volunteer work, and employment
-student engagement is essential for learning; be accountable for your future

Attendance counts:
-attendance is a reflection of your commitment and work ethic
-students are required to be present for 8 periods each day
-no more that 28 absences for full year course or 14 days for half-year course

Promote Rocky Point Pride:
-get involved and support each other through academics, clubs, music, theater, and sports!
- be kind and promote acceptance; the character of the student body dictates the culture of
our school. Do your part to make Rocky Point High School the best we can be!

“Every moment of our journey is leading to something bigger. It’s up to you to read each
situation, make every decision, and control the flow of the game…..and your life!”
Dream Big!
