April 2022


Dear RPHS Parents and Families,


As we enter the month of April, it is wonderful that spring has arrived and increased hours of daylight are upon us.  As we are now in the final marking period of the school year, it is important that our students remain focused on learning, as it is easy to become distracted with the nice weather and springtime activities.  Academic focus and consistent attendance should continue to be a top priority as students begin to prepare for their Regents Exams and final projects.  Additionally, we continue to encourage our students to stay after school with teachers to receive additional academic support. Thank you in advance for helping your children stay on course for a successful school year.


Looking ahead this month, our students will continue to be involved in varied academic and extracurricular activities.  In the arts, our drama club students will present a live performance of the short play, We Are the Sea, on Friday April 8th and Saturday April 9th at 7 pm in the high school pocket theater.  On Monday, April 11th, the high school will present “Jazz Night” at 7:30 pm in the auditorium.  Additionally our spring sports programs are off and running successfully.  We are looking forward to continuing the winning tradition here at Rocky Point.  At the end of the month, the National Honor Society will induct a new class of students to the esteemed leadership organization.  I would like to personally thank all of our club advisors, music directors and coaches for their unwavering commitment and support for all of our students over these past months.  


It is important to take note that this school year will conclude with traditional New York State Regents Exams and course finals in June.  You will receive a Regents Exam schedule later in the spring.  As most of our students have not taken a state exam in over two years, it is crucial to support your children throughout this final marking period.  Please keep in close contact with your child’s teachers and consistently check the parent portal to observe all graded assignments and assessments.  Please be sure your son/daughter is on pace in each class.   Should your son/daughter show signs of mental fatigue or extreme stress, please reach out to their guidance counselor for further support.

Rocky Point High School’s World of Technology students welcomed another guest visitor in their yearlong pursuit of learning about career and technical education fields, career planning and job interviewing techniques. Teacher Mr. Robert Ciaccio introduced the students to Mr. Danny Matuza, fixed operations director at Smithhaven Auto Group, a conglomerate of car dealerships in Smithtown.

Mr. Matuza spoke about careers in the auto industry. He stated that a dealership has many opportunities for entry level positions, which can lead to more advanced and high-paying careers. “The possibilities are endless; it all depends on your work ethic,” he said.

Mr. Ciaccio said that Mr. Matuza also shared the personal challenges he faced as a high school student and how his desire to succeed in life allowed him to raise above all he faced to now be the highly successful man he is.
