On Friday, April 5, 2019, Ms. Merrithew's AP Studio Art students toured the Light Work Lab on the Syracuse University campus. Light Work Lab is a member-supported, community-access photography makerspace for individuals pursuing artistic projects. The AP students received a tour of the lab; learning darkroom and digital photography techniques. The students then attended the exhibition of local photography images.

Kicking Spring Into Gear at The Ultimate Goal

 
On Monday, April 8, 2019, second graders from Syracuse Academy of Science Elementary visited The Ultimate Goal Family Sports Center. Students took part in multiple team building activities including group games such as kickball, dodge ball, musical chairs, tug 'o war, and others. Keeping our minds and bodies active is one way we're building success one ATOM at a time!

Fourth-Grade Gets a New Perspective on Rights

On Thursday, Aprill 4, 2019, 4th graders from the Syracuse Academy of Science visited the National Women's Rights Museum in Seneca Falls, NY. Students were able to connect their learning from our novel study, The Hope Chest, to historical facts that happened right in our state. We learned about the Declaration of Sentiments and the great lengths women and men went to so that we can vote, dress how we choose, go to college, and choose our careers. The museum offers a variety of exhibits that gave us a new perspective on the rights and privileges we have today. As Elizabeth Cady Stanton said, "We hold these truths to be self-evident: that all men and women are created equal."

Atoms Win Big at 40th Annual CNY Science and Engineering Fair

On Sunday, March 31, 2019, Atoms from both the HS and MS attended the 40th Annual CNY Science and Engineering Fair at the Museum of Science & Technology - MOST.

Atoms Earn Second Place at the CNY Innovation Challenge

On Saturday, March 30, 2019, the #SASCS Middle School STEM club participated in the 2019 CNY Innovation Challenge at Onondaga Community College. The Innovative Challenge aims to spark ideas and foster entrepreneurship. Our Atoms developed an idea to help eliminate plastic and cardboard waste from our schools. They conceptualized a drink machine that could be used in place of milk cartons and plastic bottles. The design of the machine was to utilize the lunch pin system by having students input their pin number into the machine and have the machine dispense the student’s drink into a biodegradable cup. The STEM team, Molles, took 2nd place in this year's challenge. Way to go, Atoms! 

Traveling the World with #SASCS Elementary

On Thursday, March 28, 2019, our students traveled on a Cultural Cruise. Students spent the morning exploring other "countries" and learning about various traditions, activities, and languages that different parts of the world have. Thank you to all of the family members that took the time to make food, share your knowledge, and spend time with our students.

Sisters Empowering Sisters Conference

On Friday, March 22, 2019, thirty-two young ladies from SAS attended a two-day conference that celebrates young women by empowering them through panel discussions and presentations on health, well-being, careers, and higher education. Twenty-six of the students attended both days of the conference, placing SAS at #1 for the 3rd year in a row for the highest number of conference participants to return the second day! Khalia Robinson, Aliyah Felder and Alexius Pierce won books from authors present at the conference, based on their participation and remembrance of small details mentioned during the panel discussions. The ladies represented our school well, and they presented themselves well. Their behavior was recognized by conference leaders and panel members. They stayed together, watched out for one another, and learned useful information while having a wonderful time together!

Taking a Stand Against Bullying

On Tuesday, March 26, 2019, to promote a positive learning environment in which all students feel welcome and safe, Syracuse Academy of Science continuously takes a proactive approach against bullying. One example is a school-wide anti-bullying event that recently took place at the Middle School, where students participated in a range of engaging activities, including a photobooth with props, a team-building hula-hoop challenge, a blindfolded “egg and spoon” obstacle course, and a fun game of blob tag. Students also competed in an Anti-Bullying art-poster contest as well as an Anti-Bullying essay contest. Making a surprise guest appearance, Leroy Collins, a former NFL player for the Washington Redskins and Jacksonville Jaguars, gave a powerful motivational speech that encouraged students to speak up--and stand up--against bullying.

SU Student Athletes Share Skills with Fifth Graders

On Friday, March 22, 2019, several Syracuse University football players, rowers, and dancers came to the Middle School to share their athletic training and experience with some of our 5th-grade students.  They discussed how they manage their daily schedules and balance commitments to their teams. Some topics included the importance of creating and carrying an agenda, acclimating to a new place (one rower was from Amsterdam), and being dedicated to one’s team. Students were eager to ask questions, and at the end of the discussion, they got to play basketball and knock out with the athletes. Some of the SU dancers taught cheerleading steps and the students had an opportunity to show off their flips. Hands down, it was a spectacular way to learn.

Frog Flinging in Fairy Tale Land at #SASCS Elementary

On Thursday, March 21, 2019, Atoms and their families spent the night exploring a math-filled fairy tale land. Families measured their shoe prints to see if it was just right, crafted crowns fit for a king, solved princess and the pea fractions, and everyone's favorite -- flung frogs far in the gym. Integrating community building, academic achievement, and fun into our school is just one of the ways we are building success one ATOM at a time.
