During the morning meeting at East Cheatham Elementary School on Monday, fourth-graders gave an overview of the eclipse.
In the classrooms, various activities highlighting the eclipse took place.
During the first week of school, ECES teachers participated in a contest. They were asked to submit a quote about the eclipse and tie in the fact that ECES is a Leader in Me school.
The winning quote came from fourth-grade language arts teacher Melissa Adams Jones, who received a gift basket filled with moon pies and Sundrop. The quote is on the school’s marquee.
Students will be participating in a contest this week.
Students in grades 2-4 will create an acrostic poem using the words solar eclipse.
Students in grades Pre-K-1 will write a sentence or draw a picture telling about someone they think shines as bright as the sun and why.
The student winners will be announced on Friday, which is a Black Out Day. All students and teachers will wear black in preparation for Monday’s eclipse.
