1) Continue to dream regardless of age, and you will be able to "Soar" to unimaginable heights.

2) Silent marching can be as impactful as using words, so continue to march in the right direction in life.

Monday, January 22nd, 2024: What better way to start a National celebration than with a theme day? Citizenship & Science Academy of Syracuse Elementary scholars proudly wore their uniforms and celebrated National School Choice Week! What is school choice? School choice allows every family to choose the K-12 educational options that best fit their children. Each child is unique, and their education should be too. Educational options include traditional public schools to public charter schools, public magnet schools, private schools, online academies, and homeschooling.

We love seeing the scholars' smiling faces and watching them form special bonds with their friends.
