The district’s music department at Joseph A. Edgar Intermediate School has been recognized as a “Suffolk Elementary School of Excellence” by the Suffolk County Music Educators Association. 

This award is given to Suffolk County elementary schools that have robust music programs for their youngest students. In order to receive this honor the school music department must have band, chorus and orchestra performing ensembles (appropriate to grade level), host school concerts, a school musical and have had students participate in SCMEA. Furthermore, the school must offer co-curricular/club activities, take part in local performances that benefit the community and provide interdisciplinary grade level activities.

The Rocky Point School District proudly congratulates the JAE music department, including teachers Craig Knapp, Vincent Ragona and David Ventura, on receiving this honor. 

JAE will receive a SCMEA Elementary School of Musical Excellence banner to proudly display in the school.
