Ms. Tayler’s Class Show ‘Its Cool to be Kind’

Students in Ms. Tayler’s first grade class enjoyed goodies and sweet treats for winning Kiss FM and WKTV’s ‘Its Cool to Be Kind’ campaign.

Friday, October 22nd, 2021We all know it is 'Cool to be Kind,' ... but did you know that the kindness and generosity performed by Ms. Tayler's 1st grade class at Utica Academy of Science elementary school was recognized by Central New York’s #1 hit music station Kiss FM and WKTV?

On Friday, October 22nd, the Atoms received a special visit from Kiss FM who presented the students with goodies and a class pizza party as part of their 'It's Cool to be Kind' campaign. To enter, students had to demonstrate or perform the following acts of kindness:

  • Give a classmate a compliment
  • Tell someone they did a good job
  • Pick up trash in your classroom without being asked
  • Discuss why kindness is important as a group
  • Let someone go ahead of you in line
  • Ask someone new to sit with you at lunch
  • Hold the door open for someone behind you
  • As a class discuss what harm bullying can do

Once these acts of kindness have been completed, a class photo with the completed pizza pie is taken and submitted for a chance to win a pizza party! Each winning class received a pizza party hosted by the personalities from WKTV and Kiss FM, sweet treats from Ramon's Bakery, school supplies for each student, goodies from Fly Creek Cider Mill, and the teacher will receive a brand new InstantPot.

We are excited to share that Ms. Tayler's 1st grade class is one of the four classes that are currently in the running for the grand prize of $250 from GPO Federal Credit Union! Click here to view the coverage of the Atoms from WKTV. Congratulations Atoms, we are very proud of you for demonstrating acts of kindness and for the recognition of all your hard work!

Good Clean Fun in Ms. Head’s Science Class

Utica Academy of Science 4th grade students let the sun do the work, when testing out their solar powered electrical systems.

Friday, October 15th, 2021Utica Academy of Science 4th grade Atoms learn about clean energy through a hands-on, minds-on STEM project where students created their own solar powered electrical systems. Much like the electrical systems, the Atoms understood the value and importance of working together to find a creative solution to their engineering problem.

For this STEM project, students were tasked with developing a solution to make their fan spin using different techniques with wires and solar panels. As a result of the solar panels it's safe to say, the Atoms let the sun do the work for them by producing enough energy to power their fans to allow them to spin.

Much like the sun, the Atoms certainly have a bright future ahead of them! Keep up the great work.

Wherever Life Plants You, Bloom With Grace

Ms.Cavo’s 2nd grade class planted seeds in a container and observed their daily growth for their first science experiment of the school year.

Tuesday, October 12th, 2021The students in Ms. Cavo’s second grade class conducted their first science experiment of the school year. For this experiment, Atoms were tasked with planting seeds in a plastic container, and will be observing and documenting their growth over the next few weeks. To achieve optimal growth, the students placed their containers with the seeds on the window sill in the sunlight.

This hands-on, minds-on will help teach the students first hand the importance of photosynthesis. We are all ‘rooting’ for the growth of these plants and look forward to seeing progress pictures in the near future.

Let Your Voices Be Heard: Kimberly Risher

Tuesday, September 21st, 2021- I think we can all agree that both students and parents can relate to the feeling of being ‘stretched thin.’ This message was shared by Utica Academy of Science Charter School parent, Kimberly Risher, as she shares her story and challenges with Durham School Services, during Utica Academy of Science Charter School’s press conference held on September 21st.

The delays caused by Durham School Services have caused major disruptions within family schedules. Families like to plan ahead and with the sporadic drop-off times, it has caused students and families to miss out on after school activities, sporting events, and ultimately impacting the future of the students.

We invite you to join us throughout the week as we continue to share videos in this 8-part series,’Let Your Voices Be Heard,’ where you will hear stories from concerned parents and students who share their experiences thus far with Durham School Services.
