Spirit Day:  To celebrate the viewing of the solar eclipse as a school, please wear your PGES shirts to school on Monday, April 8th

Solar Eclipse:  With parent/guardian permission, students will be able to view the solar eclipse with their class under close supervision by their teachers.  Special viewing glasses will be provided for all staff and students.  Teachers have been reviewing with students safe viewing habits and expectations.  Students should not look directly at the sun while outside for this event.  We will continue to remind them of this leading up to Monday afternoon’s event.  If you do not want your child to participate, then please return the letter that was sent home last week.
