On Thursday, October 18, 2018, It was our third grader's turn to Tim's Pumpkin Patch. Despite the chilly weather, our #SASAtoms enjoyed this fun-filled fall activity and even got to take a pumpkin home with them. Their favorite part was the warm cinnamon doughnuts and apple cider with their classmates and teachers. These team building activities are just one of the ways we are building success one ATOM at a time.
On Tuesday, October 16, 2018, second grade #SASAtoms enjoyed a fun-filled day at Golub's Pumpkin Farm. Our #SASCS Scholars learned the responsibilities of running a farm while visiting with the animals and enjoying the pumpkin patch. As a special surprise Golubs had a physics demonstration of using stored energy to launch a projectile without the use of an explosive... ahem, also known as catapulting a pumpkin across the field for us. Go Atoms!
On Friday, October 12, 2018, our Kindergartners explored Tim's Pumpkin Patch in Marietta. #SASAtoms toured the farm to learn about the fine operations of a Pumpkin Patch. They also visited the barn to see what types of animals live on a farm. All the kids had a great time picking out their own pumpkin to take home.
On Thursday, October 4, 2018, inspirational speaker Marc Mero shared his message with the #SASCS community. Mero travels to schools across the nation sharing his message of anti-bullying, kindness, and the power of choosing your destiny.
On Thursday, October 11, 2018, our #SASAtoms enjoyed a fun-filled Literacy Night. Families were invited to explore popularly themed classrooms like Pete the Cat, Wonder, and Dr. Seuss. #SASAtoms and their families competed in a scavenger hunt for prizes while they participated in reader's theater, games, a photo booth, and arts & crafts. A few #SASAtoms dressed as their favorite book character for the night. Our literacy nights encourage reading as a family, and are one of the many ways we are building success one ATOM at a time.
On Wednesday, October 10, 2018, first-grade #SASAtoms hopped on over to Tim's Pumpkin Patch in Marietta. The students enjoyed a tractor ride around the pumpkin patch, a corn maze, interacting with farm animals, and enjoyed some fresh apple cider and donuts. Before leaving, the #SASCS Scholars were given a compliment on how nice their manners were and how polite and respectful they were for the duration of the visit. We are so proud of our #SASAtoms, and can't wait to see where they are off to next.
On Monday, October 1, 2018, our third-grade #SASAtoms were visited by Margaret Lane, Executive Education Programs Director at the Maxwell School, and her associate, Magda. Margaret is part of the Maxwell School at Syracuse University and travels the world learning, promoting, and gathering knowledge to help support education. She spoke with #SASAtoms about personal and career goals, as well as about some of the work that she does for the education programs at Maxwell. These opportunities teach our #SASCS community about leadership and encourage our #SASAtoms to visualize their futures. We are building success one ATOM at a time.
