On May 20, Ronkonkoma Middle School’s Rhythm Factory Jazz Band attended a field trip to the Jazz Loft in Stony Brook under the direction of band teacher Mrs. Alaimo.

While there, the students participated in a workshop run by jazz historian, music educator and cornet player Dr. Thomas Manuel. Dr. Manuel is the founder and president of The Jazz Loft, a creative space which joins jazz performance, preservation and education in celebration of the past, present and future. Dr. Manuel dedicates his professional efforts to both the preservation of Long Island’s jazz history as well as presenting it to future generations.

Students experienced a guided tour of historical jazz instruments and relics featured in the museum. Dr. Manuel guided students with musical interpretations and improvisation, a jazz technique in which musicians compose their own music on the spot. Students ended their trip with a preview performance of their upcoming spring jazz concert on May 29.

Ronkonkoma Middle School plays volleyball to be DEZY Strong

Ronkonkoma Middle School hosted its third annual Dezy Strong Week during its physical education classes.

In preparation for the week, students were shown a video, telling Matthew “Dezy” DiStefano’s story and were given information about his foundation. The Dezy Strong Foundation is a nonprofit organization established by Matthew “Dezy” DiStefano who was diagnosed with stage 4 kidney cancer in February 2019 and passed away in January 2020. The foundation helps support others affected by cancer. Dezy was a Sachem High School North alumni, teacher and coach whose family lives in the Connetquot Central School District.

During Dezy Strong Week, the entire student body as well as members of the administration and faculty were split into two teams, team orange or team blue, to compete in a schoolwide volleyball tournament to raise money for the foundation. Teams were rotated every four minutes and scores were tallied during each physical education class.

Each day, a “player of the day” from each grade level and a “teacher of the day” were selected for exemplifying characteristics that the coaches thought Dezy would be most proud of.

In total, the fundraiser raised $6,381 for the foundation!
