Eclipse Viewing and Preparation
The first day of school is also the day of the solar eclipse! The Watkins PTA Working Group has purchased glasses for the students, and an outing is planned for the entire school in the afternoon of August 21st. Parent volunteers are invited to attend and help with this special event.
In May of this year, Cluster grandparent and astronomer, Jay Pasachoff, visited with students at Peabody and Watkins to talk about this exciting event, and prepare and educate them about how to safely view it.
