Solar Eclipse - August 21st 2017

Story image 1_0

        Jefferson Elementary school students took part in the viewing of the 2017 Total Solar Eclipse. Students arrived outside between 12:30 and 12:40 and were able to see all the different things happening to their surroundings during the time before and during totality. Some of the students were even able to identify the changes to the shadows that were being made by the trees. Students were able to remove their glasses at the time of totality.  It seemed that all students were excited about what was going on and seeing all the changes.

A quick Thank You to all the teachers and paras who put in extra time adding paper plates to the glasses to help keep the younger grades a little more protected.
