Principal's Message

August 2018

Dear Parents:

We are so excited to start the new 2018-19 school year with you children.  It is so fun to see students and teachers come back to school ready to learn.  Here are a few things we wanted to inform you of as we start our new year.

New Teachers

We have three new teachers at our campus this year.  Mrs. Detamore who will be teaching first grade, Mrs. Esplin who will be teaching third grade, and Mrs. Johns who will be teaching fifth grade.  They will be a wonderful addition to our staff and we are lucky to have them.   All of our teachers are highly qualified.  If you have any questions or want more information regarding the qualifications of your teacher, please contact administration.


Our parent organization (POEC) will be having some wonderful opportunities for parents to volunteer please help us with your support! Kelli Blake, a SAA North parent, is our new North Campus President.  She has some fabulous ideas for this coming school year.   The POEC will be at back to school night providing information about events that we will need parent support.

Dollar Dress Day

Dollar dress day is alive and well.  We use the funds to support our field trips and various grade level activities.  You can pay for dollar dress day on our school web site or send a dollar with your student on that day.   

School Lunch

We have a wonderful school lunch program.  There are many school items that are made at the school and students enjoy the menu.  The monthly school menu can be found on the web.  The cost of school lunch is $1.90.  If you believe that you could qualify for free or reduced lunch, you can find the application on the Syracuse Arts Academy Web under “for parents” lunch program.

Picking Up and Dropping Off

Just a gentle reminder that the first bell rings at 8:25 a.m. and the tardy bell rings at 8:30 a.m. We will be serving breakfast starting at 7:55 a.m.  Please do not have your children here prior to breakfast being served as we do not have official outside supervisors.  The end of the school days is 3:30 p.m.  Kindergarten students only will be picked up in the back of the school.  See our website ( for further details.

Again welcome newcomers and former students we love having you here!
