Thursday, March 16th, 2023: Families joined Syracuse Academy of Science for an evening of pirate-themed math fun! Students and their families began by figuring out their Pirate names. The night's object was to complete four math tasks in 4 classrooms. Upon completion of each lesson, Atoms received a piece of a map. When families finished all four, the completed map led to a secret treasure in the gym! Also, in the gym were more math games and visits with Bett's Branch Library and Empower Credit Union, who bought games and treats!
Friday, March 24th, 2023: Syracuse Academy of Science believes real-life experience is just as important as lessons in the classroom. Therefore, students are taken on several field trips every year. Kindergarteners stepped out of the school and into some fun at Little Ray's Nature Center. Little Ray’s is right inside Destiny Mall, and although their name may be "little," they are packing some big fun! Atoms saw and touched animals, from turtles, snakes, and other reptiles down to a tarantula! Some kindergarteners were even willing to hold the tarantula! Scholars had a great time learning about these animals.
Monday, May 15th, 2023: Students and families gathered to celebrate the arts at Syracuse Academy of Science High School with our Spring Music Concert and Art Show. Students in choir and band performed a show-stopping concert with music in several different styles, featuring solos from students and small ensembles in addition to the full band. 9th through 12th graders showcased their artwork in 2D and 3D. Art students have created projects such as Art Nouveau, Realism, color theory, and many more. Students even created sculptures using the "Trompe-l'oeil," which means style to deceive or trick the eye.
Everyone enjoyed a reception sponsored by Wegmans following the concert. What a tremendous year the arts had at SAS! We can't wait to see what the 2023-24 school year will bring!
Monday, March 6th, 2023: Syracuse Academy of Science Middle School Student Council members gave back to their school community with a library project! Council members began re-organizing the school library by genre so their peers could easily find books by their favorite themes and authors. We love to see our Atoms helping out their peers!
Thursday, April 13th, 2023: Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary School combined art and science for a vibrantly brilliant project. How? Kindergartens became color scientists for the day by using a pipet for water to see colors come alive.
Check out these Atoms hard at work.
