Mr. Berry's Latest Update. Click to read more.
On August 21 ,2017, there will be a solar eclipse. This event is being called, "The Great American Solar Eclipse" because it is the first time since 1918 a solar eclipse will be visible on a path across the entire continental United States. We plan to allow students across our district an opportunity to view this phenomenon through the use of eclipse-safe viewing glasses. Safety is our top priority and we want to ensure that this experience is both safe and enjoyable for students and adults. With that in mind, I want to share with you some preliminary details regarding our plan for the event.
1. We will provide a 30-minute presentation about the eclipse and emphasize the importance of safe viewing.
2. We have purchased eclipse-safe viewing glasses for each child and staff member.
3. We will escort high school students outside from 1:00-1:30 for viewing of the eclipse (weather permitting).
4. Teachers will emphasize the importance of keeping glasses on at all times during the viewing of the eclipse.
lf you prefer your child not participate in this activity, please email the building principal.

Message from Mrs. Roller:
Well - here is another trip! Many were unable to go to Europe in 2018, so I decided to take a group to NYC!!! I would be open to taking current freshmen, sophomores, juniors, seniors and adults since we will be within the country (less stress/concerns for me as the tour leader). I will have a meeting at the beginning of the school year (but you can enroll now if you want the discount) and will be starting a new group page if you are interested. Price reflects hotels near hot spots in NYC for those wanting to venture the city during off times- please check out all the slides. Feel free to share.
