"Finding Your Swing"
During the 2017-18 school year, Rye Junior High School completed a year-long project called "Finding Your Swing", linked to a school book read of The Boys in the Boat by Daniel James Brown.  The term "swing" is used within the competitive rowing community to describe when a rowing crew is in perfect sync with each other and the boat is moving forward at optimum performance. We used the term as a theme for the year to present numerous interdisciplinary challenges to students.
One focus of the project was that each grade level (6thgrade - 8th grade) built two rowboats and their corresponding oars. Each grade level constructed a different model boat. At the end of the year, May 31st, RJHS held a "Rye Rowing Regatta" in Rye Harbor at which time grade level teams raced their rowboats through a marked course within the harbor. The entire community was invited to line the shores to cheer on the student performances and accomplishments!
