One School, One Book School-wide Event

 In February, SRM will be embarking on a special project called, One School, One Book, an all-school book club. The One School, One Book Program is in place throughout the country, with the fundamental purpose being “building a community of readers” through a shared reading experience. Everyone – students, parents, teachers, even support staff – will be participating, and we can all benefit from this project.

 Parents are critical participants in the program, too!  During our kick-off event from 6:30-8pm on February 2nd,  we are asked for parents to join the fun by participating in a  scavenger hunt at SRM (the hunt and puzzle will took approximately 40 min) .  Upon arrival, parents and children worked through a series of questions, received pieces of a puzzle and worked towards discovering the book title.  At the end of the evening, each child received a copy of the selected book.  Students unable to attend received their copy of the book in homeroom.

Each day/evening (Monday through Friday) your child will be asked to read a designated section of the book (approximately 10 pages a night). In school, your child will be invited to answer trivia questions to encourage and reward attentive voracious reading. We have selected a title that can be understood and enjoyed by our 7th grade students, but will also still captivate and stimulate our 8th grade students. Throughout February, everyone will be talking about the same book!

Career Expo

On March 3 professionals from the community visited SRM to share their expertise.  The Career Expo was designed to expose students to a variety of careers  and provide valuable information on how to acquire the ideal work ethic to not only get a desired job, but to keep it.  Presentations included careers as engineers, architects, musicians, police officers, firefighters, sports management, yoga instructors, sales, and more.  A panel of 8th graders and SRM alumni also spoke about getting ready for the grades ahead. Syracuse University mascot "Otto the Orange" also made a special appearance and had some wise words about college life.

Women in STEM Careers

On Wednesday, February 3,  several 8th and 9th girls participated in the Women in STEM Careers event organized by the CNY STEM Network and sponsored by the Syracuse Research Corporation.  The event  encouraged girls to consider a career in a STEM field since local businesses are in need of a strong STEM workforce and women in these fields are underrepresented.  The students from SRM and LHX participated in a number of activities including a tower building competition.  Students toured the radar production unit and participated in a question and answer session with women professionals in science, technology, engineering, and math.

Students Visit SU Art Department

Nationally known Ceramicist Margie Hughto , a landscape artist in clay recently shared her perspective and work ethic with high school and middle school students in a collaborative project. Students created “landscape” relief platters using bas relief, and color techniques from this inspirational artist.
 A nature theme is planned and work is to be created at Syracuse University Arts with Margie Hughto, Susan Sapareto and Emily Dusart.

The ceramic pieces from this workshop will be displayed in March at the Café 407 in Liverpool.

8S Community Service

Earlier this school year, members of Soule Road Middle’s 8S Team read an article from The Post-Standard that said half of Syracuse children live in poverty. While the article cited census numbers, SRM 8S social studies teacher Renae Piano brought those numbers to life by sharing what she learned last summer as one of the principals for the BOCES Regional Summer School in North Syracuse. There she had the opportunity to meet Dr. King Elementary kindergarten teacher Renee Valerino, who was completing her administrative internship. Both teachers shared stories about their teaching experiences, and one in particular stood out for Piano. Valerino said that she and her colleagues provide their students with small gifts during the holiday season, noting that for some those presents were the only ones they would receive. Soon after hearing the stories, Piano’s fellow SRM 8S teachers - math teacher Brad MacDuff, science teacher Ann Marie Schulz and English teacher Jennifer Stein - pitched the idea of adopting a school this holiday season and the eighth-graders were eager to help. After thinking about multiple ways to help, the SRM eighth-graders decided to hold a toy drive for the kindergartners at Dr. King Elementary. Students could purchase a new toy (not to exceed $10) or donate gently used items. SRM faculty and staff members also helped by providing gifts, wrapping paper, ribbons, bows, tape and even cardboard boxes.Once all the toys were collected, the students designed greeting cards and wrapped the donated presents. On December 21, a group of SRM eighth-graders traveled to Dr. King Elementary where they met the kindergartners, distributed presents, and completed a craft with the younger students.
