Tuesday, January 18th, 2022—Congratulations to the Utica Academy of Science Lady Atoms on their victory against cross-town rival Herkimer. The Lady Atoms won 3 sets to 1.
The athlete of the game goes to Adela Sokolar, who led the Varsity Volleyball team with multiple aces, which led to the victory over Herkimer!
The Lady Atoms will be traveling to Herkimer for their next Volleyball game on Friday.
Monday, January 10th, 2022—Utica Academy of Science 4th grade students in Mrs. Winter's class put their creativity to work to help make a difference and impact in the lives of thousands of people in Uganda by hosting a 'Shoe Party' on National 4th Graders day! The shoe party will benefit the non profit organization, Sole Hope who helps restore the health, and hope of the citizens in Uganda by using jeans and turning them into shoes to help prevent jigger infestation for the people who wear them.
For those not familiar with jiggers, thousands of vulnerable people in Uganda suffer from this crippling parasite. In fact, Jiggers keep kids from going to school, running, and playing. They prevent people from walking and working.
During the shoe party, the Atoms played a vital role in preparing the shoes by cutting out shoe pattern from an old pair of jeans. From here, the fabric will be used to finish the handcrafted shoes in Uganda and will allow the citizens to protect their feet from the harsh conditions. Each year, Sole Hope handcrafts roughly 11,000 shoes, and with the help of the Atoms they are just one step closer!
What an inspiring story, Atoms - way to make a great difference and impact in the world!

Monday, December 6th, 2021—In early December, Utica Academy of Science elementary school recognized its Students of the Month, and its ClassDojo winners - who were selected based upon the highest number of Dojo points earned. One ClassDojo winner was selected per classroom. Keep up the great work, Atoms, and remember it's a new year, new you!
Tuesday, December 21st, 2021—As we get ready to welcome back the Atoms tomorrow, we wanted to share one last bit of holiday cheer and celebrations just before Winter Recess!
The week of Winter Recess, Utica Academy of Science elementary school students had an opportunity to wear pajamas to school, as it was going to be 'Polar Express Day!' Much like the book and the movie, the characters all wore their pajamas as they climbed aboard a train that brought them to the North Pole.
For this festive day, each student received a special round trip ticket for the Polar Express, and of course hot chocolate and cookies. During the day, the Atoms received a surprise visitor from the North Pole, who even took some pictures with the students.
This mini celebration was a great way to get everyone pumped and excited for their upcoming Winter Recess.
We hope all of our students found time to rest and relax this past week. We look forward to seeing you bright and early tomorrow morning! Please click here to view more pictures from this festive event.
Friday, December 10th, 2021—Earlier this month, the Utica Academy of Science junior senior high school ENL students embarked on a field trip to the Capital Region where they learned all about the history of New York state. Their first stop of the field trip included visiting the oldest and largest state museum in the country, the New York State Museum. During their visit, students learned about art, science, and human/natural history of the state. Some of the exhibits they saw included: ice ages, Cohoes Mastodon, birds of New York, and Adirondack Wilderness.
No field trip is ever complete without visiting the Capital Region’s premier destination, Crossgates Mall where the students grabbed a bite to eat and did some shopping.
What a fun, memorable and educational learning experience!

Tuesday, December 21st, 2021—Congratulations to Coach Lee, his staff and of course the Utica Academy of Science boys basketball team for being ranked 2nd in the Class B Division. Atoms were also ranked 1st in their league with a record of 8-1.
Last night, the Atoms took on Tamarac, and lost with a score of 64-57. However, Najalique Taylor was selected as the player of the game!
We are very proud of you and look forward to seeing and hearing about another great and successful basketball season. Make sure to check out Utica Academy of Science junior senior high school's upcoming basketball schedule and come out and cheer on the Atoms!
Wednesday, December 22nd, 2021—The Wednesday before Winter Recess, Utica Academy of Science junior senior high school teachers, faculty, joined in a little holiday fun for their team bonding event. During their event, everyone had an opportunity to try delectable dishes from all around the world, and hopefully they saved room for dessert, as there were many sweet treats in all shapes, sizes and of course flavors.
Thank you to everyone who helped make this event possible.
Wednesday, December 22nd, 2021—The week of Winter Recess, Utica Academy of Science elementary school spread a little ‘holiday cheer’ by creating an in-school snow day on the half-day of school. Throughout the day the students participated in a variety of creative, hands-on activities, games and activities that were holiday and winter themed. From decorating cookies, to trying their luck at constructing gingerbread houses made out of graham crackers, to playing reindeer games (quite literally), to even letting their sillies out by playing in the school gymnasium. It is safe to say that this in-school snow day will most certainly be going down in history, much like Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer!
We hope all of our students are enjoying their Winter Recess, and we look forward to seeing them next week.
