Discovery Kitchen with #UASCS
Tuesday, January 7, 2020—Watch out folks, the kids are making dinner! #UASAtoms enjoyed a cooking demonstration from our very own Director of Dining Services, Tammy Pittsley, of Chartwells K12.

Atoms Deck the Halls with Holiday Tunes
Friday, December 20, 2019—The weather outside was ‘frightful’ but the sound of classic holiday tunes filling the halls right before winter recess was, oh so delightful.

Thank you for your generosity, and making this concert unforgettable. We hope all of our Atoms are enjoying their winter recess and look forward to seeing you on Monday.

Fun-Filled Festivities Kick-Off Winter Recess
Friday, December 20, 2019—Middle school Atoms enjoyed a fun-filled day leading up to winter recess. From music and dancing, to a variety of station activities to even a friendly class competition of soccer it was certainly a day to remember. Oh, did we mention that it was also a pajama day, and teachers and staff sang their parody ‘Ten Days Before Break My Students Said to Me?!’
Students who earned over 50 merit points were eligible to participate in the student lock-in. Atoms enjoyed a pizza party, crafted their very own gingerbread houses (some construction materials might have been consumed), a ‘snowball fight,’ board games, and learned a Stepen hip-hop dance courtesy of Utica Dance.
Thank you, to the parents for the donations and for everyone who made this event possible, and memorable. We wish all of our Atoms, faculty and staff a safe and enjoyable winter recess, and we look forward to seeing you next week.
