Solar Eclipse

Bowers Elementary School Information

 

 

On Monday, August 21, 2017, all of North America will be treated to an eclipse of the sun.  Anyone within the path of totality can see one of nature’s most awe inspiring sights - a total solar eclipse.  This path, where the moon will completely cover the sun and the sun's tenuous atmosphere - the corona - can be seen, will stretch from Salem, Oregon to Charleston, South Carolina.  Observers outside this path will still see a partial solar eclipse where the moon covers part of the sun's disk.  The eclipse begins at 9:01 a.m., the max eclipse is at 10:15 a.m., and the eclipse ends at 11:37 a.m.

 

The Bowers Staff is excited to explain and experience the eclipse with their classes.  They will be streaming the event live in their classrooms.

 

School and classroom safety measures have been put in place to ensure all our students remain unharmed as they enjoy this natural phenomenon.  The following safety measures will be followed:

 

  • All students will have indoor morning recess.

 

  • Physical Education classes will take place indoors.

 

  • Students will be escorted to the restroom by a staff member.

 

  • All teachers have familiarized themselves with the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) safety guidelines.

 

  • If you have any questions or concerns, please email your student’s teacher or contact the school office at (408) 423-1100.

Preschool "Typical Peer" Opportunity

Hello Bowers Community!

Greetings from  Bowers' Specialized Academic Instruction Preschool classes.  We have a "typical peer" program in our classes and we are wondering if you have children, grandchildren, or family friends who would be interested in attending preschool MWF from 8:15­ - 10:45 am for the 2017-2018 school year.

The typical peers would be helping our students as "language models."  We are looking for children who are 3­ to 5 years old who have had some type of daycare, home school, or preschool experience.

Please email us to let us know if you are interested!

Thank you!

Kathi Harris, Angela Francisco, Noreen Avgarski & Veronica Weaver
