Dear Parents and Guardians:
I am extremely excited for the 2023-24 school year! There are so many great changes in our building and throughout the district. Our nine-period day will certainly elevate the students educational experience. I want to thank our PTA for organizing such a fabulous kick-off event for our incoming 6th grade students at our August BBQ. This event aided in their transition and eased the students’ anxiety as they met up with their classmates, explored the school with their new schedules in hand and practiced using their lockers. Their smiling faces lit up the halls once again, and they seemed excited to begin their time at the Middle School.
We are looking forward to getting reacquainted with many parents and students, as well as meeting our first time parents and students as they embark on their 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 their “Rocky Point PRIDE,” and consider the values of “participation, respect, integrity, diversity and excellence” in their daily choices and interactions.
Middle School Fall sports are set to begin for our 7th and 8th grade students on Wednesday, September 6th. Any student who wants to participate in athletics is required to have a current physical that has been verified by our school physician, as well create an account Family ID before they can be cleared to participate. Clubs will begin during the upcoming two weeks and meet every two weeks. Clubs will be announced in our Bi-Weekly Flyer which will be emailed to you every two weeks. Please note, there is a tab for the “Bi-Weekly Flyer” located on the RPMS web page. RPMS Pictures are scheduled for September 21st and 22nd during the student’s Physical Education class. In addition, RPMS Open School Night will be held on Thursday, September 14th at 7PM. Parents will report to their child’s “Advisory” class first that evening, where they will receive a copy of their child’s schedule.
I look forward to maintaining open lines of communication with you in the hopes of creating an experience that is successful socially, emotionally, and academically. This experience is only possible with an equal commitment, cooperation and interaction among students, parents and staff. On that note, we met with the students for a “Code of Conduct” Assembly on Wednesday, Sept.6th. We discussed many expectations, practices and policies in the RPMS. We ask that you review these guidelines with your child (located in their agenda books) and work with us to keep the building running safe and distraction free. Also, please be sure to update any and all emergency information on the parent portal as soon as possible, 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.
Teachers will announce when Extra Help will be offered in their Google Classrooms and it will take place after school from 1:43 PM - 2:08 PM. Students may then take the 2:10 bus home, or stay for a club or sport. As a reminder, if your child is driven to school in the morning, student drop off (6:50AM-7:10AM) will take place at the back High School tennis court area.
Please continue to check The RPMS “Virtual Book Bag” to view 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
We know that the 2023-24 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.
