Solar Eclipse: What to do Aug. 21

On Monday, Aug. 21, 2017, the moon will pass in front of the sun and cast a shadow on all of North America, coast-to-coast, for the first time since 1918. Solar eclipses occur when the moon blocks any part of the sun and – weather permitting – the entire continent will see this once-in-a-lifetime eclipse. (The next total eclipse for United States observers is on April 8, 2024, visible only in the eastern half of the country.)

Arizona will see a 63% solar eclipse, starting at 9:14 a.m. and ending at 12 p.m. The max eclipse will take place at 10:34 a.m.

Teachers Return to Campus

This week, teachers have returned to campus to prepare for the new school year. They are meeting with the new faculty and staff joining our team this year, participating in professional development training, and preparing classrooms and curriculum for students' return. Part of the fun in getting set for a new school year means getting to know where everything is located on campus, especially the best selfie spots with Sparky!
