Lone Mountain Elementary embraces science opportunities

Kindergarten through sixth grade students had an opportunity to view the solar eclipse in the Cave Creek Unified School District. Staff and parents were present to make sure that proper eyewear was utilized while students studied this awesome event.

Parents at Lone Mountain Elementary School, Dr. & Mrs. Jaramillo brought in and setup their high-powered telescope with appropriate filters for students and staff to view the eclipse. They took pictures through the telescope and tracked the solar eclipse progression. Photos can be seen on the Lone Mountain Twitter Account @LMESEagles1, CCUSD’s Facebook, Instagram and Twitter feeds.

Lone Mountain Principal, Mr. Rob Miller, says, “ we will take every opportunity for our students to learn about science in our world as it presents itself. We are proud that our students had an opportunity to learn about our universe at school on this special occasion.”
