On Friday, January 11, 2019, the students at the Citizenship Academy are spending time developing mind-body awareness, improving self-regulation, and cultivating physical fitness. Want to know how? Mr. Eckert, our physical education instructor, is demonstrating the value of flexibility, breathing, and relaxation through the practice of Yoga. Way to go, Mr. Eckert. Thank you for helping us build success one ATOM at a time.
On Thursday, December 20, 2018, #SASCCS second-graders spent the day at Wonderworks and expanded their knowledge of the sciences. Students explored areas in Natural Disasters, Space Discover, Physical Challenge Zone, Imagination Lab, Light and Sound Zone, and the Far Out Gallery. The students enjoyed every minute of it.
On Wednesday, December 19, 2018, each student received a warm, cozy hat from Chartwells. Thank you, Chartwells for being so generous!
This December students and staff at #SASCC collected non-perishable food and new toys to be donated to families in the community in need. We received 64 food items and 37 toy donations. We hope that our contribution to the community will make a difference this holiday season. Teaching our #SASCAtoms the value of altruism is just one of the ways we are building success one ATOM at a time.
On Friday, December 14, 2018, Kindergarten students from Mr. Thayer and Ms. Kline's class enjoyed a cooking lesson from Chartwells, the food-service provider of our daily school breakfast and lunch. Each student made his or her own personal pizza, including choosing favorite toppings. The best part of the activity? Eating their very own pizzas for lunch!
On Friday, December 14, 2018, #SASCCS first-graders took a field trip to Glow Golf at Destiny USA, where they learned how to play miniature golf, with a twist. When they applied their new skills to each of the iridescent 30 holes, they cheered on classmates and showed great sportsmanship. It was a fantastic glow-in-the-dark day!
On Friday, December 14, 2018, the SASCCS Staff participated in Ugly Sweater Day. It was a great team building activity and we especially enjoyed seeing the looks on the students' faces!
On Wednesday, December 12, 2018, #SASCCS third graders took a field trip to the Cazenovia Public Library to learn about a mummy named Hen housed in the library’s museum. As the students observed Hen, they discussed what his life might have been like when he was alive 3000 years ago. Students were very enthusiastic and interested in viewing all the artifacts on display from Ancient Egypt, and even some from other places around the world. To express their gratitude for the rewarding experience, they drew pictures of the exhibit and wrote thank-you cards to be mailed to the library staff.
On Tuesday, November 20, 2018, Citizenship Academy's first-grade classes took a trip to Highland Forest for a community service project. The weather was chilly and snowy, but it didn't stop students from making bird feeders out of ice-cream cones, peanut butter, and birdseed. When completed, the students took the bird feeders on a nature walk in the woods where they put them for all the animals to enjoy during the oncoming winter. Lending a helping hand to forest animals warmed their hearts and left an impression of the value of their good works.
On Thursday, November 29, 2018, #SASCCS hosted its 2nd book fair and literacy night. The well-attended event was filled with hands-on activities to celebrate holidays around the world and, of course, books of all kinds to browse, shop, read and share. The academic fundraiser was a huge success--we received more than $900 in Scholastic dollars that will be used to bring more hands-on materials into our children's classrooms. Thank you, Atoms, for your generous support!
