Parent Coordinator's Corner
Welcome! My name is Terry DaMelio and I am the Parent Coordinator at Rockaway Park High School for Environmental Sustainability. As Parent Coordinator, my primary goal is to encourage participation from parents, and support a meaningful collaboration between you and school personnel. Our shared goal is the success of all our students.
In my role as Parent Coordinator, I will conduct parent outreach, help organize events and activities, disseminate information to parents, and perform any number of tasks to help Rockaway Park High School to be an even better school than it already is.
Your participation in the school is critical, as you are the students’ first teachers and have a tremendous amount of love and dedication vested in their success. Rockaway Park High School has always been a community that works toward the happiness and overall well-being of our students. I hope to foster openness and communication between the adults that touch our students’ lives, as it is important to their success. If there is anything I can do to help you be active participants in the educational process, please do not hesitate to call or visit me. My door is always open and I always make the time to listen and help. I welcome your ideas and questions, and look forward to meeting each and every one of you. My desk is located in the Main Office. I can be reached by telephone at 718-734-3280 extension 2022. I can also be reached by email at TDamelio@schools.nyc.gov
Additionally, as the school year begins I would like to work with the community to plan relevant workshops for parents. Please complete the attached survey so we can have your input on workshops that will benefit you and your child.
