  • Rye Lake Students Earn "March Madness" Trip to Westchester County Center

    For a few hours on March 22 – the middle of March Madness season – a dozen Rye Lake students had the basketball court at Westchester County Center all to themselves.

    They were selected to go on the special field trip because they all demonstrated S.M.A.R.T. values over the course of a month:

         S = Safe at all times

         M = Making good use of their time

         A = At their assigned location

         R = Respectful to themselves, the staff and their peers

         T = Technology compliance and responsibility.

    In addition to playing a full-court basketball game, students were able to request that certain staff members attend the trip for a staff vs. student full-court game.

    After playing hard for the two-hour session and enjoying themselves, the Rye Lake Campus staff treated the students to a victory lunch at the local McDonald’s.
