Team Bonding and Character Strength Development

Fourth grade Atoms visit Shove Park for a field trip

Wednesday, October 9, 2019—A beautiful fall day calls for a field trip dedicated to team bonding and enhancing character strengths learned inside the classrooms. Our 4th grade Atoms visited Shove Park for an outdoor field trip. Students worked together to complete a scavenger hunt, where items on the list were local to New York. Following this activity, students had an opportunity to play a game of kickball or play on the playground. Both activities allowed Atoms to encourage one another, build friendships, and to show good sportsmanship behavior.

Stop. Drop. And Roll, it's Fire Safety Time

Fireman Dan Connors of the Syracuse City Fire Department joined the Kindergarten Atoms for story time

Thursday, September 26, 2019—Atoms didn't start the fire, but they certainly learned all about fire safety with a special visit from fireman Dan Connors of the Syracuse City Fire Department. Fireman Dan joined the Kindergarten Atoms for story time and read to them, No Dragons for Tea, which discusses the importance of fire safety. To demonstrate what the students learned about fire safety, fireman Dan showed not only the Atoms but the teachers, as well, how to properly "Stop, Drop and Roll" in case of a fire emergency. To make this day even more memorable, Atoms received an "official" fireman helmet that they could wear for the remainder of the day. Thank you fireman Dan, and the Syracuse City Fire Department for sharing your time with our students, teaching them about fire safety, and for all that you do.
