Successful speakers, Bosnian music, the traditional folk dance “Kud Ljiljan,” poems, historical lessons, and cuisine filled the cafeteria to honor and celebrate the contributions of the Bosnian community to our community and the City of Utica. This March marks the twenty-seventh year of independence.

First Grade Goes Behind the Scenes at WKTV

On Friday, February 15, 2019, first graders went behind the scenes at our local WKTV News Studio. The students learned about the enhanced technology in the control room and the types of job available at a news station. #UASAtoms met the news anchors and watched from the sidelines during a live newscast. Our students were full of questions and excitement, and a few walked away saying that they would like to work at a news station someday. Thank you, WKTV, for a great visit.

Trekking in a Winter Wonderland

On Friday, February 15, 2019, snowballs were flying and laughter filled the air as UASCS sophomores trekked through the woods of Boonville in snow shoes. Scholars clumsily raced down a snowy hill, to see who was the fastest in the cumbersome shoes, resulting in many wipeouts fit for America’s Funniest Home Videos. Students made snow angels, had an epic snowball war, and shared lunch together in a warming hut, truly enjoying the wonders of winter in central New York. A huge thank you goes out to the Black River Outdoor Education Program for inviting our sophomores to Boonville. 

Drone Program @MVCC

The UASCS Drone Team is hard at work on a project that’s part of Mohawk Valley Community College’s weekly drone program. The program is designed to expose students to emerging technologies and provide them knowledge about STEAM-related subjects. During a recent session, students worked on design and 3D printing, as applied to drone technology.
