Eagle Update

On Monday, August 21st we will have a solar eclipse. Where we are located, the peak will be at 10:15 AM when the moon obscures 77.3% of the sun! 

A solar eclipse occurs when the moon passes between Earth and the sun, obscuring the sun from view. When the disk of the moon appears

to completely cover the disk of the sun in the sky, it is known as a total solar eclipse. If part of the sun is still visible, it is known as a partial solar eclipse.

Solar eclipses occur because the moon orbits the Earth at an average of 239,000 miles - which is just the right distance for it to appear the same size in the sky as the much larger sun, which is 93 million miles away. The amazing coincidence means that, when the moon passes in front of the sun, it is appears to cover it perfectly. 

See you on our upper grade blacktop at 10:00am; we have solar eclipse glasses for everyone! Mrs. Korbett, STEM, Teacher Leader and Mrs. Hodge, Principal

STRAW & Friends

GATE students from around the district partnered up with STRAW (Students and Teachers Restoring a Watershed) and Friends of the Petaluma River to study a local creek.  Both organizations provided water quality test kits which gave student's hands on experience.  Teachers from STRAW gave students lessons at the creek and in the classroom.  At the end our time the students were experts on using and reading pH tests, temperature readings, nitrate tests, phosphate tests, and dissolved oxygen tests.
Our guest teachers helped students develop a deeper understanding about where nitrates and phosphates come from and how each test is affected by various factors.  
A big, big thank you to our friends at STRAW and FOTPR.
