SAS MS Atoms Reach Milestone in Reading Challenge

Syracuse Academy of Science Middle School Teacher Dresses Like Pirate to Celebrate Reading Challenge Milestone

Tuesday, September 19th, 2023: Students are participating in the Syracuse Academy of Science Middle School Reading Challenge this year. Every time Atoms read a book and submit a form, the total number of pages they read gets added to the whole school's total. When they hit certain milestones, Mr. Farnach volunteered to perform certain tasks. In this case, the goal was 1,000 pages. The students reached it, and Mr. Farnach had to dress up like a pirate for the day. The next goal is 5,000 pages, and then Mr. Farnach will get duct-taped to a wall!

Keep turning those pages!

SAS ES Celebrates Student Achievements

Syracuse Academy of Science Teachers & Staff Give Student Shout-Outs to Marvelous Atoms

Monday, September 18th, 2023: Mrs. Miller's Marvelous Minds Wall is not just for academic success. This year at Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary, we are celebrating social-emotional achievements, too! When a teacher or staff member catches a student doing something incredible or kind, that student is given a shout-out on the morning announcements and gets to write their name on the Marvelous Minds wall! This year, some shout-outs have been for coming to school ready to learn with a positive attitude, comforting a new student who was nervous on the first day, and standing up for someone who was being picked on.

We are so proud of these marvelous minds! Keep it up!!

Thursday, September 14th, 2023: Have you heard about International Dot Day? It’s celebrated every year on September 15th. The holiday is inspired by a children's book written by Peter H. Reynolds called "The Dot" in 2003 to celebrate creativity. The plot is about a girl named Vashti who discovers her artistic talent. Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary Atoms in Ms. A-B's classroom celebrated their originality by reading "The Dot" and making all kinds of Dot Day art!

This is one of our favorite days to celebrate and we hope our Atoms will always be courageous with their unique expressions of creativity!
