Watauga Elementary School 2017 Total Solar Eclipse
Wed, August 23, 2017
Watauga Elementary was prepared for the 2017 total solar eclipse. On Monday, August 21st, students at WES took advantage of this rare, educational opportunity and allowed students to safely experience the event during the school day.
The school purchased eclipse glasses for each student and faculty member to have. The glasses were used by those students whose parents gave permission. Teachers supervised small groups of students with the specialized glasses by taking them out to view the eclipse for a limited amount of time. The Watauga encore team created a day focused on safety and science of the eclipse along with dancing, history, games, and trivia!
