Fall Book Fair Delivers Great Books and Higher Goals

Brimming with books for students and their families to share, the fall Scholastic Book Fair at SAS Elementary School included various genres, engaging content and more—all geared toward a range of primary ages. Excitement grew and imaginations soared as students looked for new books for themselves and their families. Through the extreme generosity of parents, grandparents and siblings in our SAS community, the school was fortunate enough to go way above and beyond our sale goal of $1,000. The total reached well over $3,000!  This success would not have been possible without the help of volunteers who donated hours of their own time. Thank you to all who participated and helped to make the fall Scholastic Book Fair a great success!

Students Working Together to Prevent Bullying

As part of our school-wide initiative to raise awareness of bullying, we recently held an Olweus Bullying Prevention Program—and it was a huge success! Students were engaged in a variety of activities, such as creating anti-bullying posters to hang up throughout the school and signing our Olweus school pledge, which is now hanging in the school hallway. A variety of team-building activities took place using our wonderful new playground, a bounce house and parachute. Students also worked on a T-shirt design and got their faces painted.

SUNY-ESF Campus Visit

On Tuesday, Sep 26th 2017, Syracuse Academy of Science High School (SASCS-HS) students visited SUNY-ESF. The trip was coordinated by the outreach program and hosted by Dr. Richard Beal, Jacob O'Connell and Maura H. Stefl.

The campus visit started with a brief visit to the Chemistry laboratories at SUNY-ESF where students had an opportunity to see some of the best analytical instruments. After the arrival of other high schools, Dr. Beal gave an energetic presentation. SASCS-HS students joined their peers from other high schools and worked on a group activity, building system diagrams for 10 different global issues. This activity helped students visualizing today’s pressing matters and developing a deeper understanding of global problems. Following the activity, students had lunch and a guided tour visiting campus library, hydrology laboratory and paper engineering departments. At the Hydrology laboratory, students listened a presentation about water flumes and how they are used to study river systems. Later, while visiting the paper engineering department, they learnt about the paper production and how the by-product are being used to produce biodiesel.

The trip was very valuable and informative for students. They enjoyed learning about different career opportunities and what SUNY-ESF has to offer to their prospective students.
