Principal's Message

December 2023

Dear Parents and Guardians:

November was a month full of activities at the Middle School. The RPMS held its fourth Veteran’s Day ceremony, organized by social studies teacher John Mauceri. This special day paid tribute to the veterans of our armed services. The student body was treated to patriotic music performed by our 8th grade chorus, orchestra and band. Student artwork was prominently displayed which conveyed their gratitude to our veterans. Eighth grade students, Gabriela Madrid and Gabrielle Schnittman read essays they had composed, expressing their thoughts about the importance of our veterans. Guests of honor included members of the VFW and retired staff members who served in the armed forces. Additionally, the ceremony was live-steamed to the Stony Brook Veteran’s Home. The service culminated with the RPMS presenting our own Joseph Masterson with a plaque thanking him for his years of service in the United States Coast Guard.

I would like to take this opportunity to congratulate the cast and crew for an incredible job with their performances of “The Wizard of Oz”. Hopefully, you had a chance to see this amazing production under the direction of Ms. Spitz and Mrs. Farrell, and choreographed by Ms. Jamie Mancini. As anyone who saw the show would agree, the talent that our own RPMS performers possess is simply astounding! 

December promises to be busy as well. Our first Winter athletic season is well underway, with student athletes participating in Boys’ Basketball, Girls’ Volleyball, and Competition Cheer. The Student Government is hosting the “Nightmare Before the Holiday Season” winter dance for middle school students on December 8 th . Sixth grade students going to the dance will stay after school to attend the dance from 2:30 - 4PM. Seventh and Eighth grade students will attend from 4:30 - 6 PM. Tickets are $7 and are on sale during the lunch periods. Please DO NOT PURCHASE outfits for this dance, as it is very informal, however, it is an opportunity for our students to socialize. Please be sure to make arrangements to pick up your children after each dance, because no students are permitted to walk off the school grounds. (The 4PM bus will be available for the 6th grade.)

During the first week of December, the eighth grade Social Studies classes will be visited by our SCPD Cope Officer, Officer Allison. At these meetings, he will discuss Internet Safety with our students. Also, as part of a unit of study in their 7th grade English classes, students will travel to Theater III in Port Jefferson to see a production of Charles Dickens’, “A Christmas Carol.” Students will be able to enjoy the show and take part in a “Question and Answer” session with the show’s cast. 

The Music Department is working hard to prepare our budding musicians for the Winter Concerts. The Winter I concert is scheduled for Wednesday, December 13 th at 7PM, highlighting the MS Select Chorus, Band 6, Chorus 6, Orchestra 6, and Orchestra 7. The Winter II session is scheduled for Thursday, December 14 th at 7PM and this evening will showcase Band 7, Chorus 7, Band 8, Chorus 8, and Orchestra 8.

Incredibly, we are already almost halfway through the second quarter. Be sure to stay on top of your child’s academic progress by logging into the ParentPortal:

The portal provides up-to-date grade reporting as well as attendance information. If you have questions about missing assignments do not hesitate to contact your child’s teacher via email. If you would like to set up a team meeting with your child’s teachers, contact your child’s counselor or contact the main office with any other questions. 

REMINDER: teachers announce which days Extra Help will be offered in their Google Classrooms which will take place after school from 1:43 PM - 2:08 PM. Students staying for extra help can take the 2:15 bus home. Also, if your child is driven to school in the morning, student drop off (6:50AM-7:10AM) will take place at the back of the High School tennis court area. If dropping off after 7:10, please drop off in front of the middle School. (Please note, no student may enter the RPMS before 6:50AM)

Rocky Point Middle School STEM classes created Thanksgiving Day balloons based on the book “Balloons Over Broadway.” Under the leadership of Educational Technology Coach Kerri Herbst, they then used Sphero to parade the balloons through the hallways. Lastly, they created a video simulating themselves being a part of the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade.

Rocky Point Middle School students in Mrs. Dawn Perri’s science class have been busy understanding force and motion. They have been learning about how things move and directions in which they go. Through the guidance of Mrs. Kerri Herbst, the school’s Educational Technology Coach, students utilized Sphero Robots and a map of Rocky Point to move around town. They used the robots to model push and pull forces, compass rose directions and speed of inclines. It also gave the students an opportunity to learn how to get to popular local destinations such as McDonald’s, Kohl’s and Starbucks within the town of Rocky Point.
