  • GLOW-gram (8/16/17):  All Families

    It’s happening!  On Monday, August 21st, our part of NC will be experiencing the eclipse during the school day.  We are excited to share that our students have the opportunity to participate in activities related to the eclipse. 1st through 5th grade students will be given the chance to safely view the eclipse using school provided glasses that meet the ISO 12312-2 international standards for safe viewing of the eclipse.  Kindergarten students will NOT have the opportunity to view the eclipse but will be able to watch a livefeed on the internet of the eclipse during the peak viewing time. 

    • If you want your 1st through 5th grade student to have the opportunity to view the eclipse while supervised & while wearing school provided safety glasses:
    • An inside alternative activity for learning about the eclipse will be offered for students who do not return the necessary signed waiver form. Again, we will offer students who do not have permission to view the eclipse a chance to watch a livefeed of the eclipse during the peak viewing time, using a video showing of the event in the multipurpose room.
    • Track 3 families, we realize you are tracking in on Monday, so please make sure you send the signed permission form with your child when he/she returns on Monday J If you don’t have a way to print a form, we will have extras at the front desk for you to come sign on Monday morning! 
    • Tracks 2 & 4 Families: Don’t forget to get your Boosterthon Fun Run pledges. 

    Also, come join us 9:30-10:30ish this Friday, 8/18, on the soccer field to cheer on your child during the Fun Run. We need YOU!!
