SAS Middle School held our moving up ceremony for 7th grade students moving on to 8th grade
On Tuesday, June 21, 2016, Syracuse Academy of Science Middle School held our moving up ceremony for 7th grade students moving on to 8th grade. Mr. Yavuz spoke to the students, parents, and families, encouraging students to pursue their dreams and never give up. Following Mr. Yavuz's words, a video presentation featuring photos from throughout the school year was shown highlighting field trips as well as in class events that the students participated in during the year. As a 7th grade team, the teachers voted for superlative awards for each student, ranging from 'most likely to be found smiling' to 'most likely to one day fight aliens.' These awards were presented to each student along with their Certificate of Completion for finishing their 7th grade studies. Many laughs and cheers were heard as students were surprised with their awards. Each student waited in anticipation to see what their teachers had voted for them. Following the presentation of awards, the entire 7th grade sang 7 Years (originally by Lukas Graham) for their parents, family, and friends. Ms. Jones, ELA teacher for 7th grade, wrapped up the program with some loving words about learning from your past experiences and taking new knowledge forward to make yourself even more successful in the future. Refreshments provided by the HSO were served after as students received flowers, balloons, and gifts from proud family members. Congratulations to our new 8th grade students and best wishes for the future!
