Season's Greetings from SANY Schools - 2022

Dear Syracuse Academy of Science Charter School Community, 

How is it already Holiday Break? It seems like we were welcoming students back on campus for the new school year just yesterday. The end of the year is a time for reflection and remembrance. We are thankful for where we came from and have a moment to think about where we are going as we pursue the future with hope. 

Therefore, I want to take some time to reflect on everything we have accomplished together so far this year.

  • Syracuse Academy of Science became eligible to award volunteers in the greater Syracuse area for President's Volunteer Service Awards (PSVA). 
  • Syracuse Academy of Science celebrates and awards student of the month for September, October, November and December.
  • 13 Syracuse Academy of Science High School students receive Congressional Awards.
  • Syracuse Academy of Science students take home gold, silver, and bronze medals in the 2022 CNY Steamboat Competition.
  • Atoms in Mr. Yaman's Turkish class travels to Washington, DC for the Turkish festival.
  • Third and fourth grade Syracuse Academy of Science students had the once-in-a-lifetime experience of watching President Joe Biden’s convoy pass the school on their way up to Onondaga Community College during the President’s visit in October. 
  • Syracuse Academy of Science high school welcomes representatives from Micron.
  • Congressional Awards students go on a weekend trip to Ithaca. 
  • Syracuse Academy of Science high school Robotics Team wins first place in the CNY Bridge Building Competition.
  • Syracuse Academy of Science elementary school atoms compete in the CNY Bridge Competition.
  • Syracuse Academy of Science gets its first soccer field & 4 athletes are nominated to the All Patriots League with 2 additional honorable mentions.
