Meet Zach

List of 7 items.

  • What is your favorite subject?

    Science, because we do a lot of visual and hands-on experiments.
  • What inspires you at SSSAS?

    All of the teachers have inspired me to persevere and keep trying even when things seem too challenging. They really care about me and my success, and they continually encourage me.
  • How have you been a leader at SSSAS?

    I am a member of the SCA (Student Council Association) and was excited to become a part of that group in sixth grade. I like being a part of the group that is making decisions for the school. It has helped me prepare for the future because I have learned responsibility, how to make big decisions, and to be confident with my decisions.
  • What have you learned through serving others?

    I have participated in sandwich-making for Martha's Table many times in the mornings and afternoons at school. Service-learning projects like these are very important to me because I know there are many people who are less fortunate than I am, and it is so much better to give to them than to receive. I have learned the importance of caring for others and what seems like a small project can make a big difference in someone’s life.
  • What was it like joining SSSAS in sixth grade?

    Transitioning to SSSAS has been exciting because it has given me the opportunity to interact with more students and teachers. I enjoy having the independence to walk around the school to my classes.
  • How has music been a big part of school for you?

    I played the alto sax in the sixth grade band and the piano, which I plan on continuing in the future. I like to play mostly pop and R&B music.
  • What makes SSSAS special?

    SSSAS is a special place to be because I always feel welcome and a part of a close family community, no matter who I’m around or where I am at school.
