Wednesday is RMS Dignity day. Students and Faculty please wear your T shirts.
The mission of the Ronkonkoma Middle School
COMMUNITY is to provide
OPPORTUNITY for lifelong learning in a safe, nurturing,
RESPECTFUL environment where all are encouraged to strive toward academic
EXCELLENCE along with individual and social growth.
Elementary and middle schools in the Connetquot Central School District
recently participated in the district’s annual “Dignity for All Students
Act Week,” which promotes acceptance and unity in all aspects.
Edith L. Slocum Elementary School facilitated a “kindness chain
reaction” project where each class was assigned another class for which
to complete an act of kindness. Fourth and fifth graders at the school
also embarked on a scavenger hunt, using educational posters hung around
the building to answer questions about mental health and bullying. DASA
week at Cherokee Street Elementary School featured daily dress-up
themes, including superhero day because “superheroes take a stand
against bullying” and jersey day because “everyone counts.” At John
Pearl Elementary School, students enjoyed a virtual assembly hosted by
nonprofit Camfel Productions, centering around themes such as being the
best version of oneself and treating others with kindness. The week’s
programming at Ronkonkoma Middle School included a virtual yoga program
available to all students, a DASA-themed art showcase and an activity in
which students wrote about what makes them special by answering the
prompt “I am more than…”
Connetquot Central School District thanks all elementary and middle
school faculty and staff for working hard to ensure another successful
DASA week, as well as the students for enthusiastically participating in
the week’s activities.
Sixth graders in Lindsay Ilg’s Family and Consumer Sciences course at Ronkonkoma Middle School recently sewed face masks from scratch. The students used fabric squares, T-shirts, and old pillowcases to create comfortable face masks to wear for the new year. Each day in class, the students made progress by pinning, cutting, measuring and sewing their project together. Once the elastic was securely fastened, they were able to start wearing them.
