The start of a new academic year is one of my favorite times to visit our schools and talk with our students, families, teachers and staff. Our hallways are filled with a palpable optimism and drive to continue our momentum toward the highest levels of academic growth and success.
Student Government (StuGo) is hosting a senior sunrise celebration for the morning of August 16th. We would like to have the seniors come to school about 15 minutes before sunrise and gather at the football field, to watch the sun rise on their final year of high school.
It’s not the eclipse that is dangerous to observe, it’s the sun! The sun’s visible (and invisible) rays can cause serious damage to the sensitive tissues of the eyes, often without being immediately aware of it. Normally, our common sense protects us from looking directly at the sun for more than a second.
