Making Solar Memories

Making Solar Memories
On August 21st, SES students and staff had the opportunity to go outside to experience 93% of the full solar eclipse.  The peak time of the eclipse occurred at 2:24pm.  RBBCSC provided all students and staff with protective glasses, compliant with safety standards, in order to maximize this rare educational opportunity in a safe manner.  

In the days leading up to the viewing, classes engaged in a variety of research, technology integration, and hands-on activities to build a strong foundation about solar eclipses.  

Thank you to our central office administration for purchasing the protective glasses which allowed us to experience this event. This was definitely a memory that our students and staff will remember for years to come.
