Incoming 6th Grade Information

We would like to welcome our incoming 6th graders to DSA for the 2017/2018 school year!

On August 21, we are lucky get a good look at the Solar Eclipse as it passes across North America. Denver will have 92% coverage, which is great! However, since Denver is not in totality for the solar eclipse, it is important to remember NOT to look directly at the sun during the eclipse. Each 6th grader will receive a pair of viewing glasses for the eclipse. We have lessons that are specific for the eclipse. Below is a safety link that we will show our 6th graders. Please take a minute and remind your student about the dangers of looking directly at the sun.

Safety guidelines for viewing the Eclipse
