An important message to RCK 10th, 11th & 12th grade students and families:
Beginning with the 2014/2015 school year, the Wappingers Central School District has moved to a “house cohort plan” for delivering improved counseling and administrative services. In this organizational plan, the grade level guidance counselors are “housed”, 2 counselors per grade, in the grade level administrators’ offices. This plan is now being utilized by both Roy C. Ketcham and John Jay High Schools.
For the class of 2017 (current 10th graders), the counselors are Mrs. Diane Klemm and Mrs. Jennifer Soltish, who will be housed in Ms. Caroline Pidala’s office, the administrator for the class of 2017.
For the class of 2016 (current 11th graders), the counselors are Mrs. Antoinette Sarna and Ms. Suzanne deSimone, who will be housed in Mr. Giovinazzi’s office, the administrator for the class of 2016.
For the class of 2015 (current senior class), the counselors are Mrs. Kalah Boscia and Mr. David Townsend, who are housed in the former guidance office suite along with Mr. David Seipp, the administrator for the class of 2015.
We believe that this “house cohort model” has many advantages for our students. If you’d like any further information, please feel free to contact my office at 298-5100 x 31004.
You should have recently received the Freshman Orientation letter inviting you to Freshman Orientation here at RCK, which will be held on Aug 25. Parents, please make every effort to attend orientation as I will be presenting the new “house cohort plan” at that time. I look forward to meeting with you at Orientation.
Students are asked to bring in NEW socks to their designated Administrators office. Seniors to Mr. Stella, Juniors to Mr. Seipp, Sophomores to Mr. Giovinazzi & Freshman to Ms. Pidala. Student council will donate the socks to a local homeless shelter. The class that donates the most socks will win a donut and cider party! Students: You have been challenged to donate socks! Be awesome Help your class and your community win!
