Principal's Message

June 2023

Dear Parents and Guardians:

As the 2022-2023 school year comes to an end, on behalf of the entire middle school staff, we would like to thank our incredible parents and guardians for the cooperation and support throughout the school year. I would also like to thank our teachers and staff for their tireless dedication, compassion and energy, for going above and beyond to make the middle school experience meaningful and enjoyable. I would also like to extend a heartfelt thank you to our PTA Board, Shared Decision Making Committee, and countless volunteers for their hard work and dedication to our students.

June is an extraordinarily busy month. Please be sure to view the attached calendar to keep track of the numerous events coming up. The 7th Grade Trip to Jones Beach “Wild Play” is scheduled for June 8th. The 8th Grade Moving Up Dance takes place between 5PM-8PM on June 9th; please remember students should not leave school before 11:05 to prepare for the dance. If you plan on picking your child up early on the 9th, please remember to submit the “Moving Up Prep Pass” to our main office to make the dismissal more efficient. Final exams begin on Monday, June 12th. Please refer to the attached calendar and remember that we will have full school days up to June 20th.

Eighth grade students taking Regents Examinations in Living Environment (6/14) and Algebra I (6/15) will report to school normal time, eat lunch in the middle school, and will then be escorted by their teachers to the high school gym at 12:00 where they will take the exam.

The Eighth Grade Moving Up Ceremony will take place in the back field of the Middle School on June 22nd at 11AM, weather permitting. In the event of inclement weather, seating is limited and each family will receive only two tickets. In that event you will be notified via Connect-ed that the ceremony location has been changed to the High School Gymnasium.

Again, thank you, for all the support you have shown throughout the year. Congratulations to our eighthgrade students as they transition to the High School. And to our incoming sixth grade students, we can’t wait to welcome you in the Fall.

Please continue to check The RPMS “Virtual Book Bag” to view flyers and important information for the Middle School and the community. Please visit the Virtual Book Bag on the Middle School page site:

Rocky Point Middle School was a welcoming scene when students and staff hosted the current fifth graders from JAE to visit their future school.

To help the students transition to the new building, they were greeted by the Honor Society members for a tour, sat in on a sixth grade class and enjoyed lunch in the cafeteria.

Rocky Point Middle School participated in the Brookhaven Schools Math Meet hosted at Longwood Junior High School recently. Twenty-five Algebra 1 Honors students participated in the challenging competition.

“The focus of the meet is to foster enthusiasm for problem solving strategies and enhance creativity while relating to others of like-minded ideas regarding mathematically-based situations,” Rocky Point’s Director of Math, Science and Technology Jachan Watkis said.

Activities included exploration of new ideas and strategies for problem solving in a variety of situations. Students worked both individually and in groups. Out of 95 participants three Rocky Point Middle School students placed first place and first runner-up. Congratulations to Keith Bernier and Ryan Lane (co-first-place winners) and Nathan Watkis (first runner-up).
