5th Graders visit Enterprise America

On Wednesday, May 17th, 2017, the 5th grade students of the SAS Middle School took a trip to the WCNY building on Fayette Street in Syracuse. While there, they participated in an amazing program called Enterprise America.

This is an excerpt from WCNY’s website: Students apply the STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) and financial and civic literacy skills they have learned to run the city’s 14 businesses and City Hall, becoming business entrepreneurs and employees, consumers and citizens. They enact laws, elect a mayor and judge and enroll in a health insurance program. The business owners negotiate loans at the bank, while their employees get busy manufacturing products and pricing services including webpage design. Business accountants prepare invoices and pay bills. Journalists and photographers write stories and take photos for the city’s online newspaper. Utility company staff explain benefits of alternative energy options to business owners. Students exercise their civic duties by casting votes on city issues on a real voting machine and learn how to manage their money and time.

Students were eager to participate in this endeavor. Several businesses turned a profit in our time at the city. This was our 3rd year attending this program and truly hallmarks our commitment to preparing our students for participation in a 21st century world!

On Friday, May 5th, 2017, Miss Bittel's social studies class had a guest speaker. Mr. Valle (the father of our very own Mrs. Slate), joined the 5th grade social studies classes. He presented on Mexican culture with a focus on Cinco De Mayo. Our wonderful guest also brought a treat of Frito Pie (chili over Frito chips with cheese on top) for the students to sample.

SAS High school senior Amari Williams was accepted to Cornell University.

Syracuse Academy of Science senior Amari Williams was accepted to Cornell University. He applied to 14 colleges in his search. Cornell was his first choice.

During his time at SAS Amari participated in the drama crew and was part of the Science Olympiad instructed by Dr. Ay.

“Amari is a brilliant student who is excellent in both the courses he has taken and the research he has done. – Dr. Ay

Last year Amari was accepted into the Summer Science Immersion Program at SUNY Oswego. The program is held in July and provides students an opportunity to assist undergraduate or graduate students with their research projects. With his research he participated in the Central New York Science and Engineering fair where he won an honor medal. He and his partner were invited to Syracuse University for a research talk.

Amari achieved all of this by staying focused during his studies. His advice to his fellow students is to "try to keep doing better than before. ... It’s important to fix mistakes and overcome hurdles.”

Amari would like to thank Mrs.Brand, Dr. Kocak, Dr. Hayali, Mr. Bak and all the supportive teachers. Throughout his studies, all his teachers have been helpful, especially Mrs. Kubat, whom Amari says was a big help in the process, and Ms. McGinnis, whose AP literature class prepared him to write his college entrance essay.

Amari will major in Industrial Labor Relations with a focus in Business and Finance in the fall. Good luck, Amari!
