Monthly Olweus Classroom Meeting at the Middle School

On Wednesday, February 1st, 2017 the SAS middle school students held their monthly anti-bully classroom meeting with their 6th period teachers. The topic of the meeting was respect. They discussed ways that they could show respect both in person and online, how important it is to treat others with respect and talks about how respect and preventing bullying are connected. The idea was for them to have a better understanding how they can show respect in all facets of their lives. These meetings are a part of our continual effort to bring bullying out of the shadows in order to promote a safe, comfortable environment for all of our students.

SAS Elementary Donates Food to Local Food Pantry

SAS Elementary hosted a winter food drive to collect canned and non-perishable food items from January 9-31, 2017. This was organized as a class competition whereby the class who donated the most food would earn a dress down day. Altogether, the school collected 895 items that were donated to a local food pantry! The top classes were Ms. Figueroa and Ms. McGrath with 108 cans, Mrs. Cusano and Mrs. Styborski with 109 cans, Mrs. Murdie and Ms. Sayles with 126 cans, and Ms. Peryea and Ms. Gielarowski with 151 cans!

Kindergarten goes bowling at Revolutions

There were many reasons the kindergarten classes benefited from going on a bowling field trip to Revolutions. When the classes arrived, the students had to wait as their teachers got them their bowling shoes and set them up at their lanes. There were 5-6 students at each lane, so they had to take turns and wait as each of their peers took their turn. While one student went, the other students could be heard cheering each other on and encouraging them that they could do it. In addition, the students were able to use a “dinosaur,” which helped them line up their ball to roll down the lane; they were required to share the two dinosaurs with the other students using the other lanes. By the end of the field trip, the students practiced taking turns, encouraging their peers, and sharing, all of which are characteristics that the kindergarten classes have been talking about in the classroom.

Kindergarten has a blast at Billy Beez

The kindergarten field trip to Billy Beez was a great experience for everyone. It was not only a chance for the students to get a much deserved break from all of their hard work in the classroom, but it was also a great opportunity for the teachers to bond with their students. Everyone was like a kid at Billy Beez – we climbed through tunnels, went down slides, shot basketballs, and cheered each other on. It was amazing to see students encouraging their peers (and their teachers) as they were readying themselves to plunge down the steep slides; a great thing to see as we have been constantly reinforcing turn-taking and positivity in our classrooms. It was a blast!

Parents were invited to join the event and bring a favorite family dish. Over 20 parents came to the school to break bread with students and staff members and to share food that is often present at important moments at home. Student artwork was on display throughout the meal.  Events such as this highlight the amazing diversity that we have at SAS. We look forward to making this event an annual event.

A "Taste" of Culture in the 7th Grade

On Tuesday, January 24th 2017, the 7th grade students of the SAS Middle school worked together to create cultural dishes such as sweet potato pie and Baklava. Baklava from turkish culture and sweet potato pie from African american culture.  Students enjoyed cultural around the world music as they were preparing their meals to create a culturally fulfilling environment. Students worked together as a team to put together the recipe  and create the dishes. For the math component students scaled the recipes down and were able to calculate the recipes in half sizes. Students were very excited and motivated to put their cooking skills to work as well as their ability to calculate and work as a team.  This experience was brought to the school by our Culturally Responsive Lesson Program.  This program accentuates and celebrates the amazing cultural diversity in our schools.
