On Monday, August 21, 2017, North America will be able to experience the rare event of a TOTAL ECLIPSE OF THE SUN!
We will be able to witness one of nature’s most remarkable sights – a total solar eclipse. This phenomenon is created when the moon completely covers the sun, and the sun’s volatile atmosphere (called the corona) can be seen. The view of the total eclipse will be possible from Lincoln Beach, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina. From our vantage point here in Morrisville, we will still be able to see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers only part of the sun’s disk.
BECAUSE WE DON’T WANT OUR KIDS SITTING IN THE CLASSROOM WHEN THIS HAPPENS, Sterling will be providing Kindergarten to 8th grade students with solar eclipse protective glasses, and we’ll all be witnessing this awe-inspiring event together.
Here is a link to the glasses we ordered for our students if you’d like to purchase them for yourself: http://www.solareclipse-glasses.com/pack-of-100
