🌞 Attention Parents and Students! 🌞 Exciting News! πŸŽ‰ On April 8, 2024, we have a remarkable astronomical event happening - a SOLAR ECLIPSE! 🌘✨ While this celestial spectacle is set to grace the skies during our out-of-school day, we encourage all our students and families to seize this opportunity to witness this rare occurrence safely. Here are a few tips to make the most of this event: 1. Safety First: Remember to never look directly at the sun without proper eye protection. Eclipse glasses are a must! 2. Get Prepared: Plan ahead! Gather your eclipse glasses, or make a pinhole projector to safely observe the eclipse. 3. Explore and Learn: Take this chance to delve into the science behind solar eclipses. It's a fantastic learning opportunity for curious minds! 4. Share the Experience: Whether it's with friends, family, or fellow enthusiasts, experiencing the eclipse together can make it even more memorable. Although we won't be together in the classroom, we hope you all enjoy this awe-inspiring event and make unforgettable memories under the cosmic show. Remember to share your eclipse experiences with us when we return! Happy Eclipse Watching! πŸŒ’πŸ”­ #SolarEclipse2024 #ScienceIsCool #SafetyFirst https://wvde.us/wp-content/uploads/2024/03/30016-Solar-Eclipse-One-pager-v2_Kennedy-DAntoni.pdf
