Tigers view solar eclipse

Tigers experience solar eclipse

Osmond Community School students (K-12) participated in viewing the solar eclipse on Monday, August 21.

Students went to the school’s football field from 12:00-1:15 PM to watch the event.

High school students grouped in their student learning teams (slts)which then paired with other slts. Each pair of high school student learning teams entered the field guiding a class of elementary students.

The seniors went with the kindergarteners. Ms. Johnson and Mr. McKenna’s learning teams went with the sixth graders.

Mr. Thies and Mrs. Morfeld’s teams went with the fifth graders. Mr. Neitzel and Mr. Morrison’s groups went with the fourth graders.

Mrs. Ginn and Mr. Ortmeier’s groups helped the third graders. The students from Mr. Schmit and Mr. Schulze’s groups went with the second graders.

Mrs. Conn and Mrs. Evans’s student learning teams went with the first graders.

Many elementary students made devices to help view the sun without directly looking at it. Some made hats, while others made telescope like instruments.

All K-12 students and staff were provided with glasses safe for allowing them to look directly at the eclipse.

Mrs. Conn’s environmental science class used the experience to measure the effects it had in the area. They measured surface temperatures periodically and announced them to the large group.

Students and staff came together at one point to take a group photo while looking up at the sun.
