Rye Neck Middle School
November 10, 2022 - Issue 5
Dear Rye Neck Families,
I hope you and your families are in good health. At the middle school, students have created charters for how they wish to feel at school. Students in grade 6 would like to feel respected, accepted and energized. Seventh graders will work to feel motivated, focused and accepted, while 8th graders want to feel chill, motivated and safe. For more information and pictures of the charters, please scroll down.
On another note, please review and remind your child of the district's acceptable use policy. School devices and student emails are to be used for school purposes only. Using a device, school account or email for any other purpose is not permitted. Also, during last month's Principal's Advisory Committee I was asked about viewing or printing individual school calendars from the RN website. When on the school website, scroll down and click on the calendar icon. You will then click on customize calendar, and then click on the colors which represent the schools you do not wish to view or print.
I wish you all a happy Veterans Day and a good weekend!
Dr. Dulce Barker

Creating Our Middle School Charters and Signing our No Place for Hate Pledge
Over the past two weeks, middle school students have created grade level charters which highlight how they want to feel in school and what they can do to help themselves and their classmates feel that way. The charter is one of the four core ideas that make up the RULER program, along with the Mood Meter, the Meta-Moment and the Blueprint.
Each class created a three word charter. Those words were combined into a grade level charter made with the three most popular words. The sixth grade charter used Panther paw prints to show how they want to feel and how they can help our school feel that way. The seventh graders used the moon and stars, while the eighth graders used leaves. These beautiful representations will be on display all year between Mrs. Sullivan and Mrs. Lawlor’s offices.
We also used that time to discuss and sign the No Place for Hate Pledge which will be displayed shortly. Rye Neck is thrilled to be participating in the ADL’s No Place for Hate Program for the 10th consecutive year!

Students can try different clubs or if they are in 6th grade they can also participate in intramural sports. The club presentation as well as the schedule for intramural sports is below.
