Rye Neck Middle School students participated in a number of team-building athletic games and activities during their Middle School Olympics on Dec. 23. They worked together in five color-coded teams that allowed them to collaborate with one another.

“The Olympics provided an opportunity for students to come together as a community and make our school a fun and friendly place to grow and learn,” Principal Eric Lutinski said.

The school’s next Olympic event will take place in the spring when the students will compete in a number of game show-inspired challenges.
