Magnifying Marvelous Minds at SAS MS

Syracuse Academy of Science Creates Wall to Highlight Student's Accomplishments

Monday. March 27th, 2023: We love celebrating our student's accomplishments at Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary School. We especially enjoy it when a student runs to us excitedly to tell us about their latest achievement. So, Mrs. Miller created this wall outside her office: the "Mrs. Miller's Marvelous Minds" wall. Whenever students do something particularly outstanding in their classroom, they are sent to Mrs. Miller to sign their name on the wall for the whole school to see. 

Each week the number of names on the wall grows! We can't wait to watch it fill up this year.
