Kindergartners Take the ULTIMATE Field Trip

On Thursday, November 8, 2018, the #SASCCS kindergarten classes took a field trip to the Ultimate Goal. Throughout the day students worked on teamwork while they played dodgeball, soccer, swung on a rope swing, and played a game of tag. Its safe to say their day was filled with smiles and lots of laughs. Encouraging our #SASCAtoms to be active and work together as a team is just one of the ways we are building success one ATOM at a time.

Making a Difference this Socktober

On Friday, November 2, 2018. Mrs. Touranjoe and Ms. Holgate delivered the socks that were donated by the Citizenship Academy for Socktober. The adult socks were brought to the Golisano Foundation and the children's socks were brought to the Children's Consortium.

Nursing Home Visit with #SASCCS

On Wednesday, October 17, 2018, the #SASCCS second grade #SASCAtoms went to McHarrie Life Senior Community Syracuse Home to visit the elderly. The students read books to the ladies and gentlemen of Syracuse Home. Our #SASCAtoms listened to a story and a song by the staff and residents there. The students were invited to share the music they were working on in Music class, and they did so loudly and proudly. The students and people of the Syracuse Home enjoyed their time together and would love to do it again in the future. These community visits are one of the ways we are building success one ATOM at a time.

#SASCCS is a Positivity Project School

Every Friday at #SASCCS the whole school gathers together as a community to celebrate the #OtherPeopleMatter mindset. #SASCCS is a participating Positivity Project school, a project aimed at empowering students to build positive relationships. In our P2 meetings, we discuss the week's focus character strength and recognize students and staff who we have seen demonstrate the highlighted strength. After cheering and celebrating for our fellow #SASCAtoms, we all participate in a fun dance party to mark the end of another fantastic week. Ask your child about our weekly Positivity Projects Meetings, and see what they have to say about curiosity, teamwork, and open-mindedness.

Summer Enrichment at #SASCCS

During the month of July 2018, our #SASCCS scholars participated in a summer enrichment program.
