Fourth Grade Steps Into a World of Wonder
On Tuesday, March 12, 2019, our 4th-grade Atoms were all smiles at WonderWorks Destiny USA. Students had a fun-filled day letting out some energy with games like virtual sports, basketball, giant connect four, crazy roller coasters, and so much more. The “space” and “weather” rooms were especially interesting as they correlate perfectly with our Atoms' current science curriculum. Students made deep connections to prior learning through the hands-on, interactive exhibits the Wonderworks Museum offers.

Celebrating Achievement at #SASCS Elementary
On Tuesday, February 26, 2019, after a restful break, Grades 2-4 celebrated positive character strengths along with academic success at the Science Fair during our Student of the Month Award ceremony. The character trait for February was ambition, and all the students awarded work hard toward their goals in the classroom each and every day. In addition, 4th Grade students were commended for their hard work on their individual Science Fair projects which were presented before February Break.
Congratulations to all of our 4th Grade students for their hard work with the Science Fair this year. A special thank you to our judging panel which featured astronomers, college professors, hospital personnel, lab professionals, and engineers among many others.
