Congressional Awards Ceremony

SAS HS Congressional Awards Ceremony

Thursday, October 6th, 2022: 13 Syracuse Academy of Science High School students were honored at a ceremony as they received congressional awards. These students have been participating in The Congressional Awards program since October 2021. Every Saturday, Mr. Yaman and Mr. Turgay’s students set aside a portion of their day to work on their Congressional Award requirements. On top of the hours they spend on their personal development and physical fitness, they serve their community and earn community service hours by volunteering their time at the Thrifty Shopper store in East Syracuse.

These students visited multiple cities throughout their journeys, such as Boston, NYC, and Washington, DC. They camped in the Adirondacks, exploring their country by meeting the Congressional Award Expedition/Exploration requirement.

Hard work pays off, and we are so proud of our scholars for meeting their goals and receiving this high honor from the United States Congress. Congratulations, Atoms!

Kindergarteners Go on Field Trip to a Syracuse Fire Station

SAS Kindergartner's Go on Field Trip to Fire Station 18

Friday, September 30th, 2022: All three kindergarten classes enjoyed their first walking field trip to Syracuse fire station 18. During the field trip, students learned about fire safety and how to keep each other and themselves safe from harm. While we were there, students enjoyed watching the firefighters come down the fire pole, suit up in their protective gear, and they even got to sit in the fire truck! Our Atoms had a great time and couldn’t wait to share what they learned with their families!

Thank you, Station 18, for taking the time to have us visit!

SAS High School Back to School Night

SAS HS Welcome Parents & Students for Back to School Night

Thursday, September 29th, 2022: It's hard to believe it's already October! It feels like the first day of school was just yesterday! Syracuse Academy of Science High School held their Back to School Night for families on Thursday, September, 29th. 

At check-in, students received a sign-in sheet to ensure they were introducing their families to their core class and elective teachers. Families and students could walk freely throughout the first floor of the building to visit classrooms and meet grade-level teacher teams. Teachers handed out information about the course, and parents were able to schedule parent-teacher conferences or home visits to discuss their student's progress in more detail.

We hope Back to School night was a positive and helpful experience for all who attended. We're looking forward to the rest of the school year and building success one Atom at a time.

SAS ES 2B Invite Parents to Read in Class

Parents Read to SAS ES 2B Class

Wednesday, September 28th, 2022: Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary School's 2B Class was supposed to walk to the Library for a field trip. When the rain forced their teachers to cancel, they made the best of it by inviting parents to read to the class! 2B atoms explored the book "The Word Collector" by Peter H. Reynolds. In "The Word Collector," the main character Jerone, uses expressive vocabulary and shares it with the world around him. The children in 2B investigated words and connected them to synonyms to expand their vocabulary, followed by an investigation of keywords from the book. Parent volunteers engaged and supported the expansion of learning with their SANY scholars.
