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!

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.
