First Day of School Announcement - 2021

A message from the Superintendent

Tuesday, August 17th, 2021—Dear Science Academies of New York Staff, Parents and Guardians,

 
I hope you are enjoying your summer and have found time to relax and rejuvenate.
 
As we prepare for the 2021-2022 school year, this message will be the first of many that are intended to keep everyone informed about the first day of school on September 8th, 2021.
 
We are excited to announce that SANY students will be returning to school in the fall for in-person instruction five days a week for the 2021-2022 school year. As per the CDC’s instruction, we are waiting for official guidance from our local Department of Health. That being said, we are anticipating that masks will be worn at school indoors, regardless if you have been fully vaccinated. It’s imperative for our Atoms’ academic success, as well as, their social and emotional well-being that students attend regular in-person instruction.
 
We want to thank you for your continued support and patience throughout last year, as well as this upcoming school year. I will continue to update you as we make final preparations for the upcoming school year. We look forward to seeing you in a few weeks.
 
Sincerely,
Dr. Tolga Hayali
SANY Superintendent

Authentic Voices

Syracuse Academy of Science Deans Pamela Smith and Meghan Miller publish their collaborative research with SANY Consultant Patricia Schmidt in their book titled, Authentic Voices: Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning.

Thursday, July 17th, 2021—Over the past few years, Syracuse Academy of Science Deans Pamela Smith & Meghan Miller collaborated with SANY consultant, Patricia Schmidt, who researched and wrote a book which illustrates the power of culturally responsive teaching and learning as it becomes embedded in the New York State Education Curriculum. This book is called, Authentic Voices: Culturally Responsive Teaching and Learning.

Over the years, educators, families, and community members contributed to this unique program with the goal of enhancing learning environments by applying the languages and cultures of their students in their classrooms. Strong, carefully attentive, school leadership encouraged culturally responsive teaching & learning with the belief that children in this urban, economically stressed area could demonstrate significant academic and social/emotional gains.

A CRTL Montage was created for this book. It includes classrooms, children, teachers, family, and community members. Teachers collected CRTL experiences and presented them to Producer, Dean Meghan Miller and Director, Designer, Dean Pamela Smith. They also received support for the montage from Instructor Allen Lauricella & Graduate Assistant Elizabeth Kenny, Syracuse University, Newhouse School.

Readers of this book will witness culturally responsive lessons, family interviews, and whole school events that honor languages and cultures represented in the school. Sample classrooms’ culturally responsive lessons tied to the curriculum, are presented. Additionally, qualitative and quantitative student academic and affective gains are analyzed. Moreover, this book clearly demonstrates the talents, vision, and compassionate care given to children and their families by exceptional educators.

Juneteenth is the commemoration of the end of slavery in the United States.
