Two students from Rye Neck Middle School and three students from Rye Neck High School were recently honored for their accomplishments in and dedication to the Italian language and culture. 

Seventh grader Abigail Weidemann, eighth grader Tyler Sergio, sophomore Emelin Echeverria, junior Matteo Renda and senior Giulianna Miceli were recognized during an awards ceremony on Oct. 21. Accompanied by their Italian teachers, Davide Bianco and Rosina Martinelli, they were among students from throughout the county to receive the recognition. 

“The world language department at Rye Neck is extremely proud of all of the hard work and dedication that these students put into the Italian language and culture,” Martinelli said. “We are very fortunate that we are able to celebrate these students and their accomplishments.” 

In addition, Miceli was among 20 students who received a scholarship during the awards ceremony. She was chosen to receive the scholarship for her outstanding achievement and excellence in the Italian language and culture. 

The awards were given by the Westchester Coalition of Italian American Organizations to outstanding students who study the Italian language in Westchester County.
 

Rye Neck High School to Stage “Time and the Conways” as Fall Play

Featuring a group of talented cast and crew members, Rye Neck High School will present “Time and the Conways” as its fall drama production on Oct. 24 and 25 at the Rye Neck High School Performing Arts Center. 

“Our cast and crew members are tireless and devoted,” theater director Scott Harris said. “They create the entire production and give up countless hours to make it all happen. There are many freshmen and sophomores working on this year’s show; it’s been a real pleasure to see all these new students step up and take the place of last year’s departing seniors. They all worked together with our returning upperclassmen and created a beautiful, moving piece of theater.”
 
“Time and the Conways,” a British drama by playwright J.B. Priestley, was first staged on Broadway in 1938 and then not again until a celebrated Broadway revival two years ago by the Roundabout Theatre Company. It is a time-traveling story of the prosperous Conway family, full of optimism and excitement after WWI ends in 1919 England. 

“But almost 20 years later in 1938, everything has gone wrong,” said Harris, who described the show as a gripping and emotional drama. “Kay, one of the sisters, starts to feel that time has worked against the family, and wishes she could go back and change things. In the last act of the play, she wakes up in 1919 with the strange sense that she can make a difference.” 

Performances are on Thursday, Oct. 24 and Friday, Oct. 25 at 7 p.m. at the Rye Neck High School Performing Arts Center. Tickets are $10 for adults and $5 for students and children. They will be available at the door, general admission.

Members of Rye Neck High School’s Mind Your Mind Club are sending simple, yet powerful messages to their peers thanks to Post-it notes they left throughout the building. Ranging from “You Are Enough” to “Kindness Changes Everything,” “Love Yourself” and “Be Brave,” the messages were designed to spread positivity. 

“We know that school days can sometimes be stressful due to academic or social reasons,” said Nicole Crispinelli, school psychologist and adviser of the club. “Our hope is that a small and thoughtful positive message may serve as a reminder to someone to take a deep breath, remember that feelings are temporary, and that they are supported at school by friends and staff. We all could benefit from viewing these positive messages in the hallway as we are walking around the building.” 

With assistance from Crispinelli and Principal Tina Wilson, members of the Mind Your Mind Club placed the Post-it notes in the shape of a heart on a wall outside the dining hall, as well as in the girls bathrooms around the building. 

Lilly Morningstar, a junior and president of the Mind Your Mind Club, said that while the messages are simple and short, they resonate with her peers and can make a big difference in spreading positivity. 

Throughout the school year, Mind Your Mind Club members raise funds for different mental health organizations and practice different mindfulness techniques, including breathing exercises and yoga, to help them relax and calm down. In addition, in honor of World Mental Health Day, they have been raising awareness about mental health and advocating against social stigma.
