To our Atoms’ Family, 

The first day of school holds a certain level of wonder. As I walked the halls this morning, I heard teachers patiently sharing their vision of the upcoming school year with their new students. Classrooms that will be bustling with energy in the coming months were almost silent as students who are eager to learn, excited to see their friends, and a little nervous about what surprises a new year may hold as they adjust back into the rhythm of the school day. 

Today is a day of new beginnings. Some of you may have put your child on the bus for the first time this morning, and others may have been secretly cheering as your teenager is finally going to be out of the house. However this morning went for you, we all have one thing in common (myself included). We all chose to send our children to a Science Academies of New York Charter School. 

So let me say this -- Thank you for trusting us to educate and prepare your children for their bright futures. We have a remarkable team of educators across our buildings who are committed to providing your children the best opportunity to become productive, contributing and caring citizens.

It is very important that all students feel comfortable and safe at school, especially as our schools grow in number and size. In response to the educational needs of families in Utica and Syracuse, we now serve students in elementary, middle and high schools in both communities. This year student enrollment continues to climb in all of our charter schools, with more than 1,500 students on our waiting list and approximately 2,000 students enrolled in grades K-12.

We are looking forward to working with each of you to ensure your child’s success. Together we are building success one ATOM at a time. 

Respectfully,

Tolga Hayali, Ed.D.
