Executive Director and Principal Raymond J. Ankrum, Sr. ABD, political and community leaders, and representatives of the design and construction team of BBS Architects, Stalco Constriction, and School Construction Consultants (SCC) celebrated the opening of the new Riverhead Charter School (RCS).  Located at 3685 Middle Country Road in Calverton, N.Y., RCS is the only K-8 charter school in New York State’s Suffolk County.
Raymond Ankrum; John Galla, Legislative Aide to New York State Assembly Legislator Anthony H.

Smith, Principal, BBS Architects, Landscape Architects and Engineers; Alan Nahmias, President of Stalco Construction; Will Recce, SCC Principal, and Richard R. Tortora, President of Capital Markets Advisors, led the ceremonies.
“Today’s celebration marks a new chapter in our school’s history.  The recent addition of two more grades to our academic program and a rapidly growing enrollment generated the need for a new, permanent home for our students.  I would like to thank the project team of BBS Architects, Stalco Construction, and SCC for their dedication, skill, and hard work that has resulted in the construction of this beautiful, modern educational facility,” said Executive Director and Principal Raymond J. Ankrum, Sr. ‘ABD’.  I would also like to thank the our financial advisor CMA, the Town of Riverhead, and the Riverhead fire protection, police, water, and other departments for their support of our school.”
“The $14.1-million, 50,000 sq. ft. school includes a two-story classroom wing with 16 classrooms, an auditorium/gymnasium, a library, an administration wing, and a kitchen wing,” explained Stalco President Alan Nahmias.
