‘Hope is Winning’ with Mrs. Winter’s 4th Grade Class

Utica Academy of Science 4th grade Atoms in Mrs. Winter’s class prepares shoe patterns for Sole Hope to create handcrafted shoes to benefit Uganda citizens.

Monday, January 10th, 2022Utica 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!

Tickets Please, All aboard the Polar Express

Utica Academy of Science elementary school students dress in pajamas for their Polar Express themed holiday celebration before Winter Recess.

Tuesday, December 21st, 2021As 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!

There’s Snow Place like School on a ‘Snow Day!’

Utica Academy of Science elementary school Atoms created ornaments during their in-school snow day event.

Wednesday, December 22nd, 2021The 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.

Atoms Rocked The Stanley for their Holiday Concert

Utica Academy of Science elementary school Atoms sang and danced to a variety of holiday songs at their annual Holiday Concert held at the Stanley Theater.

Tuesday, December 21st, 2021“The best way to spread holiday cheer is singing loudly for all to hear!” - Elf

Earlier this month, the Utica Academy of Science elementary school Atoms were busy preparing for their annual Holiday Concert. Each grade dressed in various themes from holiday colors of red, white, and green, to even the ever popular 'ugly sweaters.' During the Holiday Concert, guests heard musical stylings from the Atoms, a special drumline performance, and of course singing and dancing. What made this performance different from previous years, is that this concert would be held at the famous historic Stanley Theater with their names in lights on the marquee!

While pre-concert jitters may have been among not only the students, but teachers alike, the Atoms certainly rocked the house and there was certainly holiday cheer, laughter and merriment to be had everywhere in the building.

We would like to take this moment to thank everyone who helped make this event possible, and for all the students and their families who attended the performance - thank you for your patronage and supporting the Atoms and the arts! Please click here to visit our Facebook page to view more pictures from the 2021 Utica Academy of Science elementary school Holiday Concert!

We hope all of our Atoms and their families are having a very happy holiday and a safe Winter Recess!
