Monday, August 21, 2017 our country will experience the first “Coast to Coast” total solar eclipse since 1918. Throughout the day our teachers and students will engage in exciting, educational activities to inform our students of this phenomenon. We will use a variety of resources to provide an unforgettable learning experience for our students in grades 1-5 including viewing the eclipse in the classroom on the Smart board. Each student will have the opportunity to view the eclipse safely while wearing their glasses.
Because student safety is a top priority, we elected to have our students watch the maximum eclipse in their classrooms, therefore, no students will be outside after 2:30 PM. "Eclipser Safe Solar Glasses" (which were lab tested and meet ISO 12312-2 requirements) will be provided to all staff and students to safely enjoy the experience. Students will be instructed on the proper use and will be monitored throughout the process to ensure acceptable viewing procedures. These glasses are being sent home with each student in 1st through 5th grades, so you can view the end of the eclipse together. Did you know in our location, the eclipse will not totally end until 3:59 PM?
