Special Guest Speaker, Vicki Brackens, Visits 4th-Grade #SASAtoms

On Friday, May 18, 2018 #SASCS fourth-graders had the privileged of meeting Vicki Brackens, an entrepreneur and financial analyst within our community. Ms. Brackens owns a financial firm in Syracuse. Our #SASAtoms learned what a financial-analyst does and related that to what they are learning in math and their curriculum. Students quizzed Ms. Brackens about what it takes to own and operate a business, as well as what Ms. Brackens had to do to get where she is today. Ms. Brackens was kind enough to read the book, "What do you do with an Idea?" to our students. Ms. Brackens followed the reading with a thoughtful discussion about what ideas got her to her place in life today. Engaging #SASAtoms with community leaders is just one way to expand student horizons and help them succeed. Thank you, Ms. Brackens and Go Atoms! #SASAtoms #SASCS 

United States Intelligence Community visits #SASCS

On Thursday, May 11, 2018, two members of the United States Intelligence Community talked to #SASCS students about their experiences working for the United States Government. The speakers shared stories from the field and spoke to our culturally diverse #SASAtoms about the strength that comes from our students' unique heritage and background. The presentation concluded with a scenario in which the speakers asked students to participate in a mock translation event. The rich diversity of our #SASAtoms shone through and represented the following languages: Turkish, Bosnian, Nepalese, Russian, Somalian, Spanish, Vietnamese, English, and more. The agents explained the various ways students could join the Intelligence Community later in life and utilize their bilingual skills, cultural heritage, and personal strengths to succeed. Thank you, USIC, and Go Atoms! #SASCS #SASAtoms

3rd Annual International Fair at #SASCS Middle School

On Friday, May 11th, 2018, #SASCS middle school held their 3rd Annual International Fair. For three months #SASAtoms developed culturally relevant projects, ranging from researching traditional clothing to cooking an authentic dish. When students learn about cultures from around the world, it widens their worldview and provides an opportunity to explore their differences and similarities. Students and families enjoyed learning about other countries while eating delicious food. Diversity is one of the biggest strengths of the Syracuse Academy of Science. Go Atoms! #SASAtoms #SASCS

Rehearsal with Symphoria and our #SASAtoms

On Friday, May 11th, 2018 the #SASCS middle school band attended a private Symphoria Rehearsal. Symphoria formed in 2012 as a musician-led cooperative orchestra, one of only two in the United States. The orchestra is in the middle of their 2017-18 performance season and is gearing up for their next concert, "A Tale as Old as Time" featuring popular Disney classics. The #SASAtoms were able to witness the rigor involved in training as a professional instrumentalist; the time, practice, and attention that goes into each performance. It was a great experience that we hope to repeat in the future. Thank you, Symphoria! 

#SASCS Celebrates Mother's Day with Muffins for Mom Event

On Thursday and Friday, May 10th and 11th, 2018, the #SASCS Middle and Elementary schools were proud to host their Annual Muffins for Mom events. These wonderful moments were organized to celebrate the many great female influences that are in our students' lives. In attendance at the middle school were visitors from nearly eighty families. Mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, and grandmothers all were able to sit and enjoy some delicious muffins and some great conversations. Our elementary students worked hard on decorating their classrooms and making gifts to show their mom how loved and appreciated they are this Mother's day. Moms joined their children in their classroom for a special presentation. It was a fun and loving afternoon for everyone involved. Thank you for all that you do for our students. Go Atoms! #SASCS #SASAtoms

#SASAtoms take a WILD Field Trip

On Thursday, May 10th, 2018 the fourth-graders took a field trip to The Wild Animal Park in Chittenango. #SASAtoms pet and fed animals, such as llamas, deer, goats, giraffes, and even a bull. The Wild offers different animal demonstrations every day. We were able to learn about alligators, black bears, and tigers. We learned that The Wild has the only white Bengal tiger in New York State! The students really enjoyed being up close and personal with these beautiful animals and made connections to our animal adaptations unit as we made our way through the exhibits.  Go Atoms!

SUNY ESF Hosts #SASCS Students

On Monday, Apr 9th 2018, Syracuse Academy of Science High School (SASCS-HS) students; Joseph Capra (10), Jade Regner (10), and Dianelis Zapata-Perez (10) visited SUNY-ESF. The trip was coordinated by the outreach program and hosted by Dr. Neal Abrams, Jacob O'Connell and Maura H. Stefl. The campus visit started with a brief visit to Gateway Center where students had an opportunity to learn different aspects of the building that uses renewable energy. After the arrival of other high schools, Dr. Abrams gave an entertaining presentation. SASCS-HS students joined their peers from other high schools and worked on a group activity, building system diagram on a product they had on that day. Following the activity, students had lunch and left the campus. The trip was very valuable and informative for students. They learned about future career opportunities related to renewable energies. Thank you SUNY ESF. Go Atoms! #SASCS #SASAtoms

Talking about feelings with #SASCS Elementary Students

On Thursday, May 3rd, 2018 students discussed the important topic of feelings. Mr. Derek from the McMahon/Ryan Child Advocacy Center came and read 📘"Alexander and the Terrible, Horrible, No Good Very Bad Day" 📙 to Ms. Peryea's class. Mr. Derek discussed feelings and who our "feelings helpers" can be at home and at school. We strive to teach students to communicate their feelings in a healthy and productive way. To teach them to differentiate between good and bad feelings, and how to handle the bad feelings, so that they can then turn into good ones with positive outcomes. Students were sent home with a feelings coloring book to fill in and discuss with their parents. Thank you, Mr. Derek, for a wonderful presentation. Go Atoms! #SASAtoms#SASAtoms
