MESSAGE FROM THE PRINCIPAL

NEW!
Two-Hour Delay Bell Schedule 

February 2021 

Dear RPMS Parents & Guardians:

It seems hard to believe that we are already into the second week of the third marking period. Hopefully you have had an opportunity to go over your child’s 2nd quarter report card with them to praise their areas of strength and discuss a plan to address areas of concern. Please do not hesitate to reach out to your child’s teachers, counselors, or administration for assistance related to their academic, social-emotional well-being, or any other related concerns.

Our spirit week is well underway! The goal of the week is to have some fun and lift the “spirits” of our students and staff during this difficult time. We have kicked off the week’s activities by hosting an Advisory period where each advisor shared a website our Student Government advisor, Mr. Connelly created. The website (which may be found in the bookmark section of each RPMS student’s chromebook) contains a variety of activities our building will be participating in. True to our “Chasing the Bright Side” theme, the students created inspirational messages on paper “suns” that are being displayed in our cafeteria. Students were also introduced to our logo design contest, which challenges our students to design a logo that embodies the positive spirit in the RPMS. The winning design will have their creation featured as mural/tapestry to be displayed in school, as well as, having their logo featured on a t-shirt that students may purchase. “Feel good foods” are yet another way we find happiness, so we are asking students to share their recipes and submit them on a Google form so we may compile the middle school’s very own cookbook to share. The schedule of themes are as follows: Monday- Bright Clothes, Tuesday- Hat Day, Wednesday-Pajama/Comfy Clothes, Thursday-Crazy Hair Day, and Friday- RP Pride and Spirit wear. Students who are participating in the theme of the day may go to the library during their lunch period to receive a raffle ticket. This ticket enters them into a raffle where at the end of each day, student winners are called over the loudspeaker to select a prize that our PTA has graciously donated. On Friday, “Spirit Week” will come to a climax that pits each grade against each other in the first ever, “Battle of the Building Bingo” game. Students will meet in Advisory during 8th period to compete against each other in a virtual bingo game. Thank you again to the Rocky Point PTA for sponsoring and organizing the virtual Bingo game.

We are excited to announce the start of some in person clubs. As of now, the Technology club, open to 7th & 8th grade students, will begin as an in person club, with Veteran Robotics soon to follow. Most clubs will continue as virtual activities but may evolve as the year goes on. In addition, Suffolk County’s athletics governing body, Section XI, is developing plans for middle school sports to begin in late March. That season would include sports from the “normal” fall sports season for 7th & 8th grade students. At the RPMS, those sports would include: boy’s and girl’s soccer, cross country, cheer, football, field hockey, and girl’s tennis. Our Athletic Director, Mr. Delargy will keep us apprised of new developments.

I have previously mentioned, it is extremely important for our students to participate in their classes while attending both in person and remote formats. The third quarter is the first marking period where a student can earn a grade lower than a “50” so please monitor your child’s progress by logging into the eSchool Parent Portal. Please remind your child to attend extra help, extra help is posted in the teacher’s Google classrooms.

Our guidance counselors will continue to go into the classrooms to explain the scheduling process for the 2021-2022 school year. The counselors will share the course offerings with both students and their families, so they may make informed decisions about the classes they should choose for the 2021-2022 school year. Please keep in mind, a student’s academic performance this year will impact their course selection for next year.

Important dates to keep in mind: February 15-19 Mid-Winter Recess- No School, April 20-21 NYS ELA exams to be administered in the school building only.

The RPMS “Virtual Book Bag” continues to be a source for viewing flyers and important information at the Middle School and in the community. Please visit our Virtual Book Bag site: http://rockypointufsd.org/schools/rocky_point_middle_school

As always, please do not hesitate to reach out to administration with any questions via email or telephone at 631-744-1600. Again, the staff at the RPMS would like to wish you and your families a happy and healthy new year!

Respectfully.
James Moeller, Principal
