UTICA, N.Y. – Faculty at the Utica Academy of Science Charter School came together Thursday to congratulate graduating seniors in a special way.

Teachers and school administrators made signs and wrote messages on their car windows to drive by each senior student’s home in recognition of the hard work they’ve put in to reach this point in their academic careers.

“We really want to celebrate accomplishments academically and also their accomplishments and gifts that they've shared with all of us. They are the most important piece of this building,” said Michele Grider, advisor of the UAS chapter of the National Honor Society.

The 2020 graduating class is the first full class to graduate after enrolling in the charter school back in 2013.
