A Thank You Letter Touches the Hearts of Many

Atoms learned why we commemorate Veterans on Veteran’s Day and wrote letters to U.S. Soldiers stationed overseas

Tuesday, November 26, 2019Students in Mrs. Brown’s class learned how a simple letter could brighten up someone’s day, especially someone who is stationed overseas. In honor of Veteran’s Day, Atoms learned why we commemorate Veterans on Veteran’s Day. As a project, students took time to write soldiers stationed overseas and thanked them for their service. These kind words and simple gesture made a world of difference, created a lasting impact and brightened up the soldiers’ day. To the Atoms’ surprise, they received a video thanking them for their letters and just how much it meant to receive them. Thank you to all the brave men and women who are currently serving (or have served) in the U.S. Military.

Gus Gus Makes his Debut During Health Class

Students met the classroom pet, Gus Gus the nocturnal hedgehog

Monday, November 25, 2019Everyone’s favorite hedgehog, Sonic, or well in this case Gus Gus, woke up from his nocturnal nap to meet the 7th grade Atoms during their Health class. Excited to take a break from his cage and roam around a circle of friends, Gus Gus was the highlight of the afternoon. Students enjoyed petting, holding and playing with Gus Gus.

High School Atoms Watched the New Movie Harriet

Tuesday, November 19, 2019High school Atoms visited the Marquee Cinema in New Hartford to see the new movie, Harriet - starring Cynthia Erivo as Harriet Tubman.

The movie is based on the inspirational life of an iconic American freedom fighter and tells the extraordinary tale of Harriet Tubman’s escape from slavery and transformation into one of America’s greatest heroes. With her courage, ingenuity and tenacity freed hundreds of slaves and changed the course of history.

Following the movie, Atoms will be comparing various reviews and critiques of the film and discuss the way the stories of women and minorities are portrayed in America media.

A Merit Based Activity with all the Rhythm

Atoms who had two or less unexcused absences during the quarter were eligible to attend the quarterly AttenDANCE. Students enjoyed delicious snacks and refreshments, showing off their moves on the dance floor, spending time with their friends, taking selfies at the photo booth with props and so much more. Keep up the great work, Atoms! Looking forward to next quarter’s AttenDANCE.

Atoms Visit Salem, Massachusetts for a Quick Spell

High school Atoms visit Salem, Massachusetts after reading the play, The Crucible written by Arthur Miller

Tuesday, November 5, 2019After reading the historic play, The Crucible written by Arthur Miller in 1953, high school Atoms visited the town of Salem, Massachusetts to get a glimpse of history. Surrounded by all things ‘witchy’ students visited the Salem Witch Museum where they saw the documents of the Salem Witch Trial in 1692. This educational field trip allowed Atoms to compare what they read in The Crucible to the true events of what took place at the Salem Witch Trials. An important lesson students experienced was sometimes history has not always been recorded accurately which can lead to various versions of the truth and stories.

Friday, November 8, 2019In honor of Veterans Day, high school Atoms hosted its second annual Veterans Appreciation Program where Veterans were honored and thanked by the Utica Academy of Science Community. Veterans Day honors those who have served in the U.S. Military, and through this program students were able to find a way to give back to the Veteran community. Atoms not only were able to meet and speak with the Veterans, but they were able to ask them questions and more importantly, listened to their life stories. Thank you to all the brave men and women who have served (and are currently serving) in the U.S. Military.
