Solar Eclipse


Important Information about the Solar Eclipse

On Monday August 21st, 2017 we will experience a total solar eclipse, an event that hasn’t occurred over the U.S. mainland since 1979.  A total solar eclipse, which is when the moon completely covers the sun, will occur across 14 states in the continental U.S. along a 70-mile-wide swath of the country.  While Boone County is not located in this area, we will still be able to view the partial solar eclipse.

This event will be an extraordinary educational opportunity for our students.  Many of our schools will have special activities or lessons planned for this day to accompany the event.  While this event is extremely exciting for our students, we must also acknowledge the importance of proper eye safety.  While it should be common sense not to stare directly at the sun with your naked eyes, this advice will be even more important during this event.  The eclipse must be viewed only through proper eclipse glasses.  Schools with planned viewing activities will require students to wear proper solar eclipse glasses.

In order to protect our students’ eyes during this event:

  • Students will not participate in any unstructured outdoor activities, including recess
  • Students will be advised to not look directly at the sun without wearing solar eclipse glasses
  • We will provide additional personnel until 4pm for parents who do not want their children riding the bus during the eclipse.Children who do not ride the bus for that reason will have to be picked up by parents at 4pm.
Fine Arts Showcase Fine Arts Showcase

The 2017 GMS Fine Arts Showcase will be held on Friday May 19, 6-8 pm.  The evening offers a sampling of arts, theatre and more, featuring students who have chosen to take a particular discipline a second time this year.  Our student body and community are fortunate that GMS offers such vibrant and vast arts experiences. 
This year the Fine Arts faculty are working in conjunction with two of our 6th grade students in planning this event. As part of their Passion Project, Emerson Fong and Ava Hartley are working to help provide arts experiences to other less fortunate schools in our area. These young ladies are asking that each person who comes to our Fine Arts Showcase “pay” an admission fee by donating some type of art supply item. These will then be donated to schools in need of these supplies. They request that you bring simple supplies such as paint brushes, colored pencils or crayons. Cash donations will also be accepted.
Our Fine Arts Faculty and students hope that you will join us to celebrate these artistic achievements!
