Congratulations to our #SASCS Middle School Dean's List Award Recipients

On Wednesday, May 23, 2018, the SAS Middle School held its Dean's List Dinner.  To qualify, each student had to achieve the high honor roll each of the first three quarters of the school year.  We were proud to have over forty students hit this achievement, nearly double of the previous year. With friends and families present, we celebrated their amazing work over dinner.  We are proud of their accomplishments and look forward to next year's group being even larger. Go ATOMS! #SASCS #SASAtoms

Holocaust Survivor Shares Living Memory with #SASAtoms

On Tuesday, May 15, 2018, the textbook material came to life for #SASAtoms when Marion Blumenthal Lazan, Holocaust survivor, shared her unforgettable memoir of the devastating years she spent in Nazi Germany that shaped her childhood.
Following Hitler’s rise to power, the Blumenthal family — father, mother, Marion, and her brother, Albert — were trapped in Nazi Germany. They managed eventually to get to Holland, but soon after the Nazis occupied it. For the next six and a half years the Blumenthals were forced to live in refugee, transit, and prison camps that included Westerbork concentration camp in Holland and the notorious Bergen-Belsen concentration camp in Germany. 
Exposing our #SASAtoms to powerful living memories helps stretch their worldview and prepares them to be active, engaged citizens. 

Special Guest Speaker, Vicki Brackens, Visits 4th-Grade #SASAtoms

On Friday, May 18, 2018 #SASCS fourth-graders had the privileged of meeting Vicki Brackens, an entrepreneur and financial analyst within our community. Ms. Brackens owns a financial firm in Syracuse. Our #SASAtoms learned what a financial-analyst does and related that to what they are learning in math and their curriculum. Students quizzed Ms. Brackens about what it takes to own and operate a business, as well as what Ms. Brackens had to do to get where she is today. Ms. Brackens was kind enough to read the book, "What do you do with an Idea?" to our students. Ms. Brackens followed the reading with a thoughtful discussion about what ideas got her to her place in life today. Engaging #SASAtoms with community leaders is just one way to expand student horizons and help them succeed. Thank you, Ms. Brackens and Go Atoms! #SASAtoms #SASCS 

United States Intelligence Community visits #SASCS

On Thursday, May 11, 2018, two members of the United States Intelligence Community talked to #SASCS students about their experiences working for the United States Government. The speakers shared stories from the field and spoke to our culturally diverse #SASAtoms about the strength that comes from our students' unique heritage and background. The presentation concluded with a scenario in which the speakers asked students to participate in a mock translation event. The rich diversity of our #SASAtoms shone through and represented the following languages: Turkish, Bosnian, Nepalese, Russian, Somalian, Spanish, Vietnamese, English, and more. The agents explained the various ways students could join the Intelligence Community later in life and utilize their bilingual skills, cultural heritage, and personal strengths to succeed. Thank you, USIC, and Go Atoms! #SASCS #SASAtoms

3rd Annual International Fair at #SASCS Middle School

On Friday, May 11th, 2018, #SASCS middle school held their 3rd Annual International Fair. For three months #SASAtoms developed culturally relevant projects, ranging from researching traditional clothing to cooking an authentic dish. When students learn about cultures from around the world, it widens their worldview and provides an opportunity to explore their differences and similarities. Students and families enjoyed learning about other countries while eating delicious food. Diversity is one of the biggest strengths of the Syracuse Academy of Science. Go Atoms! #SASAtoms #SASCS

Rehearsal with Symphoria and our #SASAtoms

On Friday, May 11th, 2018 the #SASCS middle school band attended a private Symphoria Rehearsal. Symphoria formed in 2012 as a musician-led cooperative orchestra, one of only two in the United States. The orchestra is in the middle of their 2017-18 performance season and is gearing up for their next concert, "A Tale as Old as Time" featuring popular Disney classics. The #SASAtoms were able to witness the rigor involved in training as a professional instrumentalist; the time, practice, and attention that goes into each performance. It was a great experience that we hope to repeat in the future. Thank you, Symphoria! 

#SASCS Celebrates Mother's Day with Muffins for Mom Event

On Thursday and Friday, May 10th and 11th, 2018, the #SASCS Middle and Elementary schools were proud to host their Annual Muffins for Mom events. These wonderful moments were organized to celebrate the many great female influences that are in our students' lives. In attendance at the middle school were visitors from nearly eighty families. Mothers, sisters, aunts, cousins, and grandmothers all were able to sit and enjoy some delicious muffins and some great conversations. Our elementary students worked hard on decorating their classrooms and making gifts to show their mom how loved and appreciated they are this Mother's day. Moms joined their children in their classroom for a special presentation. It was a fun and loving afternoon for everyone involved. Thank you for all that you do for our students. Go Atoms! #SASCS #SASAtoms
