SAS ES Atoms Dress Up for Costume Parade

SAS ES have Costume Parade During Fall Festival

Why are ghosts so bad at telling lies? Because you can see right through them! 

There weren’t many ghosts at Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary School’s Fall festival costume parade, but there were plenty of princesses! That’s because the theme of this year’s parade was Walt Disney with Disney characters! Staff, students, and even some parents dressed up in costumes for an outdoor parade around the playground, followed by some fall crafts and activities in classrooms. 

We hope everyone had a safe and happy Halloween!

SAS ES Atoms Demonstrate Trustworthiness for October Character Trait

To be trustworthy means to be reliable, keep promises, and do what you say you will do. Trustworthiness also means telling the truth and being honest with words and actions, even when it may be difficult.

Congratulations to Mrs. Eno, Ms. Pikowski, and all of our students of the month for being so Trustworthy!

SAS ES Atoms Make Their Family Trees

SAS ES Students Make 1st Family Project

Monday, October 24th, 2022: “Family trees need strong branches and deep roots.” As part of our efforts to increase Culturally Responsive Teaching, Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary School will encourage families to participate in various Family Projects during the school year. Students and families were tasked with creating a Family Tree together in October. Where we come from and who encompasses our families are an important part of who we are, and a family tree project allows students to show off their backgrounds. These are just a small sample of some of the beautiful and thought-out family trees that came into school.

Thank you to all the parents, guardians, and family members that helped our scholars make this first Family Project a great success!

Please visit our Facebook page to see more of the beautiful creations.
