Saturday, December 3rd, 2022: One of our second-grade Atoms was featured in "The BIG SHOW!" at Syracuse University. The BIG SHOW! is the overall display of art-filled education completed during the Saturday Art Workshops for Young People at SU. During this year's session, students visited the SU art museum twice, learned new techniques, and had their artwork displayed at the end of the program.
This Atom's classroom teachers and art teacher came out to support her and see her spectacular work! Way to go!

Tuesday, December 6th, 2022: It was College and Career Week at Syracuse Academy of Science elementary school.

She also read a book to the class. Thanks so much for joining us for College and Career Week, Ms. Shannon!
Friday, November 18th, 2022: “There was an Old Lady who swallowed a Turkey! I don't know why she swallowed a turkey, but she's always been quirky!”
On November 18th, SAS elementary school's 3-A class enjoyed a read-aloud by the Dean of Elementary, Mrs. Miller. Mrs. Miller delighted the third graders with the story "There Was an Old Lady Who Swallowed a Turkey." Syracuse Academy of Science elementary school Atoms always love having Mrs. Miller join their class to read to them!
Tuesday, December 6th, 2022: Ms. Cahalan’s ‘Kind Kiddos’ Lunch Bunch group continues to be creative in spreading kindness around their school. This month they decided to paint rocks and write positive affirmations or encouraging words on them. They placed these rocks in front of the school building for all staff and students to read as they enter the doors.
Thank you for continuing to spread the positive vibes, Kind Kiddos!

Wednesday, November 30th, 2022: As part of our Culturally Responsive Teachings, throughout November, Syracuse Academy of Science elementary Atoms worked on a family project: Family Traditions. Every family has unique traditions held near and dear to their hearts. They are part of what makes each family special and unique. Families were encouraged to talk about beloved traditions within their homes. Following this conversation, we asked families to help their students draw and write out the four steps of a family tradition to share with our community. Family traditions ranged from holiday traditions, birthdays, family vacations, and the first day of school rituals. We loved getting a glimpse into our students' families and home lives. Stay tuned for December's family project!

Tuesday, December 6th, 2022: It’s College & Career week at Syracuse Academy of Science elementary school. Parent volunteers will be coming into classrooms to talk about their careers and what they do in the community. Our third graders had two parent volunteers to start the week. One parent is a truck driver, and the other works for National Grid. Mr. Contreras told students how he travels from city to city and all across the state, bringing just about everything we have in our house to food in the store! Mrs. Contreras talked about how electricity works in your home and how it’s her job to turn the power back on when it goes out during a storm.
Thank you, Mr. & Mrs. Contreras for taking the time to come and speak to our students! It’s important for them to know about every opportunity they will have after they graduate.
