Middle School held its first Maker's Hall Event

On Friday, November 17th, 2017 the SAS Middle School held its first Maker's Hall. What is a Maker's Hall? A Maker's Hall is a collaborative work event inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools. Middle school students were able to explore the training that NASA Astronauts experience, search for fossils, design boats, and much, much more! This event is a great example of the STEM experience that the Science Academies of New York strive to bring to all of our students. Thank you to the Terra Foundation for bringing us this great event! Go ATOMS!

Giving Back to the Community, With Thanks and Appreciation

On November 20, 2017, in the spirit of giving thanks, students at SAS elementary school tallied the number of canned goods and nonperishable food they recently collected to donate to the Rescue Mission. Each class participated in the school-wide food drive, which resulted in 436 items! In case you are wondering which class collected the most, we are pleased to announce that Ms. Murdie and Ms. Fraiser’s class is this year’s winner, with 83 items collected. Congratulations, and thanks to all the generous families that participated in this community-enriching project.

Congratulations, Mrs. Smith!

On November 17, 2017, SAS Elementary School Dean Pamela Smith was recognized as one of 40 ambitious, hard-working, civic-minded individuals under age 40 who have made extraordinary efforts and accomplishments in the workplace and the community. The group was honored at a dinner held at the SRC Arena and represents diverse backgrounds, experiences and skills. One common characteristic is that all of them thrive on active community involvement in advancing public good.
            Mrs. Smith credits her family and many dedicated educators with supporting her endeavors and accomplishments, but she cites Dr. Hayali as having the most influence on her career. “Dr. Hayali has influenced my career by serving as a mentor and has given me the encouragement I needed to continue higher education and advanced certifications.” And what are the principles that guide her? “The two guiding principles in my personal and professional life are to be good to others and focus on growth.” Congratulations, Mrs. Smith, for being recognized as a great role model. Keep up the excellent work!

Career Day Opens Doors to Professional Development

On Thursday, November 16th, 2017, SAS high school students got a chance to meet representatives from many diverse professions at Career Day. Ever wondered what it takes to be an Air Traffic Controller? How about an Architect or a Music Producer? About a dozen volunteers held presentations in different classrooms so students could learn about each profession’s day-to-day tasks and the requirements needed to pursue each career. Students had the opportunity to ask questions of the presenters to learn more about what they do and the rewards and challenges of pursuing specific career paths. We are grateful to have had so many volunteers visit to talk to our students, including the following: 

 

Krystal Ripa from SUNY Upstate Medical University

Paul Abt from Covanta

Dave Pond from PaperWorks

Tammy Poirier and Yvette Seils from Continental School of Beauty

Lauren Long from Syracuse.com (Post-Standard)

Sgt. Jon Seeber from The Onondaga County Sheriff’s Department

TJ James and Steve Brown from SubCat Music Studios 

Jessica Perry and Oma Kassim from Ashley McGraw Architects

John Arrow and Brian Harris from The Federal Aviation Administration (FFA)

Josephine Przepiora and Jodie Brown from SUNY Upstate Medial University/ College of Health Professionals

Captain Adam Kelly U.S. Air Force 

 

Thank you to all the volunteers who took time out of their day to be there and to guide our students on to their own career paths.

7th Graders went to SUNY ESF

On Monday, November 13, 2017, the 7th grade students took a trip to SUNY ESF. The students went on a tour of the college led by current ESF students. On this tour, students learned about the history of ESF as well as the many programs that they offer. Our students also participated in college based scientific exercises lead by ESF professors. On this college visit, students learned that the sky's the limit, and they can do anything that they put their minds to. “Begin with the end in mind” is our motto in 7th grade. We encourage the students to think about their goals and plan for the future. This trip is an excellent example of that commitment!
