Yesterday was AWESOME.

Dear Parents,

Just wanted to drop you a quick note to say thank you for all that you did to support our solar eclipse viewing party yesterday!

Whether it was donating Capri Suns or extra money so that every sixth grader could have a pair of eclipse glasses or just sending your child prepared with sunscreen, water, beach towels and umbrellas, I am super grateful because it helped to create a pretty amazing day for your kids.

As they were walking back to school for dismissal, SO many of them were full of energy and smiles and excitement. It was really, really cool to see. I’m pretty sure that they will remember their first eclipse for a long time to come, that’s for sure — and in the end, that was the goal of our viewing party all along.

Please be sure to ask them about what they’ve learned, too — because they know quite a bit about eclipses and how they work!

With gratitude,

Bill Ferriter
