Solar Eclipse at North Metro Academy
Grades K-2, watched the solar eclipse in the music room, while illustrating the eclipse. They enjoyed sun chips, while watching the eclipse live.
Grades 3-5, watched the solar eclipse in the media center, while illustrating the eclipse. They enjoyed sun chips, while watching the eclipse live.
Students using their protective eye wear to view the solar eclipse outside.
I have loved visiting classrooms this week and getting to meet the students! I will be making my way to each classroom by the end of the month. Students will learn how to come see me and the different services I provide. I’m looking forward to a great year with our wonderful scholars!
This week students have been learning how to be respectful by learning to treat others how they want to be treated. Our eagles have been challenged to show respect by walking quietly to the classrooms and being good listeners when other eagles are talking. Please help us by discussing how they can show respect in school with your students. At the end of the month each teacher will choose a students that has exhibited the character trait to be honored as “Eagle of the Month”!
