Smiles and excited chatter filled the halls across all Rye Neck Schools on Sept. 4 for the first day of school. With new books and school supplies in hand, students joyfully entered their classrooms, eager to see their friends, meet new teachers and organize their lockers.

“Our opening day was filled with positive energy, enthusiasm and big smiles,” Superintendent of Schools Dr. Barbara Ferraro said. “Upon entering the buildings on the first day, the students walked into classrooms that were bright and rearranged to create the kinds of active learning spaces needed in 2018 and beyond.”

Kindergartners at Daniel Warren Elementary School had an exciting day of firsts as they attended orientation sessions with their parents and introduced themselves to their new teachers. Meanwhile, F.E. Bellows Elementary School students spent a half-day of classes organizing their school supplies, learning the rules of their new classrooms and getting to know new friends. 

Throughout the day, Rye Neck Middle School students attended a variety of presentations and moved around the building to find their new classrooms. They also met their teachers who greeted them with smiles and guided them through their expectations for the year. The halls at Rye Neck High School were buzzing with chatter as upperclassmen Peer Leaders teamed up with ninth-graders for various first-day-of-school activities that were designed to help the younger students make a smooth transition into high school.

“The beginning of a new school year is filled with excitement as students look forward to reconnecting with friends and teachers,” Dr. Ferraro said.

A group of 60 talented art students from Rye Neck Middle School and Rye Neck High School have their artworks on display at the Mamaroneck Public Library and Rye Free Reading Room Central Library exhibits through May 31.

The diverse collection of student works at the Mamaroneck Public Library features drawings, photography, painting and collage projects of 42 students in grades 6-12 from throughout the school year. Meanwhile, the Rye Free Reading Room Central Library exhibit features a collection of acrylic paintings of 18 high school students.

“This year’s student body is exceptionally talented,” said art teacher Jennifer Dallow, who organized the exhibits along with fellow teachers Trisha Appel and Karen Fontecchio. “We are thrilled to have two shows going on simultaneously. Getting artwork into the community is one of our goals as art teachers in Rye Neck. It is great for the community to view the work of the students and it is a great way for students to show their talent and enrich the lives of others.” 

In addition, more of the students’ artwork is currently on display at the high school library and hallways of the front lobby. According to Appel and Fontecchio, many of the students were inspired by artists, art movements and various techniques to create the diverse range of artwork.

“It is a wonderful culmination of work at this time of year,” Dallow added. “We can see the end result in a lot of areas and see students demonstrating their knowledge of media and design principles. It is rewarding for us as teachers to be able to hang such quality work in our local community.”
