We will never forget

Science Academies of New York (SANY) honors and remembers those whose lives were tragically changed 21 years ago today and thanks the first responders. United, we stand!

Sunday, September 11th, 2022—It’s hard to believe that 21 years ago to this day, our lives tragically changed. Many of us know where we were when we heard the news that day. Some of us heard it on the radio or watched the news that morning. While others may have heard the news from a coworker or a family member, or a friend. A day in history that we will never forget.

Today, we mourn those who lost their lives and grieved with those who lost friends and family. We would like to take this moment to thank all our brave first responders and those who have served or are currently serving in the United States Armed Forces. United, we stand.

SANY Superintendent Dr. Hayali’s Welcome Message

SANY Superintendent Dr. Hayali’s Welcome Message

Dear SANY Families,

Welcome to another exciting school year at Citizenship & Science Academy of Rochester Charter School! It’s hard to believe that it is already the first week of school. For all the new families, I would like to take this time to say welcome to the Science Academies of New York (SANY) Charter Schools!

It is an incredible privilege to be a part of a community where students, parents, teachers, faculty, and staff care so much for one another and strive to build positive relationships that support academic success. All while encouraging students to become good stewards in the community and helping strengthen and develop character skills and traits that will help students be successful beyond the classroom walls.

The first week of school is always a favorite time of mine as it's a fresh start for all of us. It’s a time of year when we build upon what we have learned in years past and begin the climb in our journey to reach our goals for this upcoming year. There is nothing we can’t achieve when we work together.

While we may not know what this school year will bring, one thing will always remain certain. We are many Atoms, one family, and we can accomplish anything.

Let’s do this!


Dr. Tolga Hayali, Ed.D
