#SASCS Middle School Learns the Ropes at Syracuse University

 
On Tuesday, October 23, 2018, #SASAtoms visited the Syracuse University Education Center. Instructors at the Syracuse University Education Center planned several team building activities. Students were paired up and encouraged to work with peers they may often not select. Our #SASCS scholars faced three challenges: cross a "river" with stones that could be moved, but if no one was on them, would wash away; enter a boat that they all had to balance on and then navigate a marble through a maze; and stand on a platform and use two planks to cross to the other platform. 
 
These challenges forced our #SASAtoms to communicate with one another clearly, and without yelling. Team-building exercises help prepare our #SASAtoms to work with all personality types and are just one of the ways we are building success one ATOM at a time. 
 

Third Grade Pumpkin Patch Fun at #SASCS

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.

Second Grade Enjoys a Day at the Farm

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!

Fall Literacy Night at #SASCS Elementary

On Thursday, October 11, 2018, our #SASAtoms enjoyed a fun-filled Literacy Night.

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.

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.
