Monday, August 21, 2017, was supposed to be a day when area residents, students, and staff were able to see a solar eclipse which blotted out approximately 98% of the sun. Instead, what eclipse viewers saw were clouds, lots of clouds. Though the solar eclipse was blocked by heavy cloud cover schools in USD 475 were still able to use the event as a learning opportunity.
Students will be provided education and information about the eclipse on or before August 18th and again on August 21st before activities begin. Teachers and staff realize the great teaching opportunity this event brings. Staff will also discuss safety guidelines with students and confirm that all participants have proper safety glasses.
For family fishing adventures, you need not look any further than your local pond or lake.
As part of the Geary County USD 475 STEM program, students from our elementary schools participated in EEE Day April 11-19, 2017. EEE Day
