Letter from the President
Monday, June 14th, 2021—Earlier this year, Syracuse Academy of Science middle school 6th grade Project Based Learning (PBL) students practiced one of their civic duties by writing to various members of the United States government. In the letters, students expressed their issues about items they are passionate about. One such government member was Syracuse native, and 46th President of the United States, Joe Biden. Atoms were excited when they did in fact receive a letter from President Biden himself.
The letter states:
