Seniors from Corcoran High School we’re out enjoying the nice day with a picnic just for them Monday at Santaro Park on Onondaga Hill. They signed a board indicating where they’ll enjoy a tuition-free education through the Say Yes to Education program. It’s a perk that’s provided to all graduating students in good academic standing in the Syracuse City School District. Jakubek Wicks decided he wanted to pursue his love of music in his hometown.
Students, parents, teachers and administrators gathered at Edward Smith School to celebrate one of the successes of Say Yes to Education. The Young Authors program held a book signing Thursday for the students that participated this year.
Listen to Young Authors: Isabel Chaperone, Calista Williams, Cammi Nash and Jordan Collie read their work that was part of the published books.
Syracuse School District Officials announced the district received a donation of 100-thousand books to get kids to read over the summer. There are documented reasons to keep young minds active when school’s out.
