Dr. Barker began her educational career as a science teacher, having served at the Adrien Block Intermediate School 25, Windward School and the Murry Bergtraum High School for Business Careers. In addition, she worked as an adjunct professor at Manhattanville College. She holds a bachelor’s degree and a master’s degree in anthropology from Florida Atlantic University, as well as a certificate of advanced study and a doctorate in educational leadership from Manhattanville College.

Community members are invited to meet with Dr. Barker on June 21 at 6 p.m. in the middle/high school dining hall.

Rye Neck Middle School was designated as a Gold Star School by the Anti-Defamation League’s No Place for Hate Program for the ninth consecutive year. This year, the students’ first activity was to create a banner to sign the No Place for Hate Pledge.

“We created our school charter, talked about diversity and the importance of representation and the power of our words,” school counselor Meegan Lawlor said. “We also learned about the Pyramids of Hate and Allyship.”

Students Create Posters to Raise Awareness About Coyotes

Student's Coyote Poster thumbnail182978

Rye Neck students showed off their creativity and commitment to their community by participating in the Village of Mamaroneck Coyote Task Force’s “Coyote Safety” poster contest. Forty-eight students submitted their posters, which incorporated images and informative text.

“We saw a wide breadth of style, color and approach,” said Rye Neck Middle School Principal Dr. Eric Lutinski, who organized the contest in collaboration with F.E. Bellows Elementary School Principal Michael Scarantino, the PTSA and the Village of Mamaroneck. “Some students used modern graphic techniques, some used hand drawings, and there was variation in the balance between text and imagery.”

The contest, which was open to K-12 students, was designed to increase student awareness and involvement, address the presence of coyotes in the area and promote safe practices. The students’ posters were judged for clarity of message and artistic effort by Dr. Lutinski and art teachers across the district. The winning posters are on display in each school’s hallways and are projected on video monitors. In addition, the PTSA provided prizes for each first-place winner and runner-up.
