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.

Sixth Graders D.A.R.E. to Make Healthy Decisions

Sixth graders eagerly raised their hands to answer questions from Village of Mamaroneck detectives Chris Jaeger and Frank Maresca about bullying and what it means to be an upstander. They also openly shared their experiences and discussed a variety of scenarios and how to appropriately react in different situations.

The lesson was part of the Drug Abuse Resistance Education (D.A.R.E.) program, which after a decadelong hiatus is underway for sixth graders at Rye Neck Middle School. Led by detectives Jaeger and Maresca, the program aims to empower students to make healthy and responsible choices.

“[The students] definitely engage with stories and examples,” Maresca said. “They’re very involved; they know a lot of things that we think they might not know, so it’s nice when they say it and bring it up.”

Throughout the six-week-long program, detectives Jaeger and Maresca will cover a wide range of topics from bullying to peer pressure and internet safety, and educate students about the health effects of drug, alcohol and tobacco use. In addition, the program aims to establish a positive relationship between the police department, students and community.

“The main thing is to help kids make wise choices,” Jaeger said.

During the last week of the program in April, the students will participate in “Jeopardy!”-style games to summarize what they’ve learned through the program.
