2nd Graders Make Snow Angels for a Cause
On Friday, February 17th, 2017, the second graders at Syracuse Academy of Science spent the afternoon before February break playing outside for a good cause. Students went outside to play in the snow and took part in the Snow Angel Challenge to support the Salvation Army's mission of working to end poverty in the area. The second grade teachers pledged to donate to the cause for every student who participated in the challenge. Students held discussions earlier in the day about things they can do to help others and what poverty meant. Many walked away with a better understanding and a desire to work toward ending it. We are so proud of our second graders as they develop into strong citizens!
