Utica Academy of Science fifth graders went on a field trip to the Utica Public Library. Scholars were able to open library cards and check out books. The Children's Area has several series we love, including Goosebumps, The Baby-Sitters Club, and Star Wars. We took a tour of the building, learning its history along the way. The trip included a winter-themed craft and snack! Our atoms are excited to keep using their library cards!

We are very thankful for our hard-working staff here at SANY. We hope everyone enjoyed Thanksgiving with their families and loved ones.
Tuesday, November 22nd, 2022: Our fourth graders went on a field trip to the NY Energy Zone inside the Utica Zoo before they left for Thanksgiving break.
The NY Energy Zone gave our scholars an electrifying experience full of interactive exhibits, activities, movies, and videos. Atoms were introduced to the dynamic world of electricity, past, present, and future, and New York State’s part in it. Scholars also learned about New York State’s exciting electric history, great electric companies, and the important work at NYPA’s Frederick R. Clark Energy Control Center nearby in Marcy.

These atoms were chosen as students of the month for showing honesty. They had a chance to ask Dr. Hayali questions and talk about anything they may have on their mind. Dr. Hayali was very excited to meet our students and asked about their future goals and ideas to improve our school. It was such a sweet moment.
We are so proud of our little scholars!
