On Monday, August 21st, 4th and 5th-grade students were able to see the first total solar eclipse in almost 100 years. Although Southwest school was not on the path of totality, students were still able to see the progression of the moon as it moved in front of and covered the sun's disk. Protective eyewear was provided by the district. Kindergarten through 3rd grades students participated in Eclipse activities in their classrooms. If you missed the Eclipse this time you won't have to wait another 100 years. There will be another total solar eclipse on April 8, 2024.
