This fundraiser takes your child’s artwork and makes it into great products for you to purchase. These products are wonderful keepsakes and gifts for family and friends. The students have been busy making beautiful artwork that can be made into many fun products such as magnets, t-shirts, mouse pads, ornaments and much more!
Two Easy Ways to Order:
  1. Paper order form located on the back of the catalog coming home to you soon.  Your child’s very own artwork and name will be printed on the front!

Watch Tomorrow Morning’s Total Lunar Eclipse!

The moon moves from west to east across the Earth’s shadow. The horizontal yellow line depicts the ecliptic – Earth’s orbital plane projected onto the dome of sky. The greatest eclipse takes place on October 8, at 10:55 Universal Time (6:55 a.m. EDT). Image from earthsky.org

You might want to set your alarm clocks a bit early tomorrow morning so you can check out the Moon as it sets in total Lunar Eclipse! No special equipment is needed, although a lawn chair, a pair of binoculars, and a mug of hot cocoa will make the eclipse even more enjoyable. Just look to the West and you can watch the eclipse!

It is hard to predict exactly what color Moon may end up while in eclipse. The only light hitting the moon is some of the Sun’s light reflected off of the Earth. As this eclipse is happening very close to our horizon, the Earth’s atmosphere will affect the light reflecting off of the Moon even more. The only way to know what the Moon may end up looking like tomorrow is to check it out yourself.

The image above shows the Universal Times of the different parts of the eclipse. The important times to keep track of here in South Florida are:

Eastern Daylight Time (October 8, 2014)
Partial umbral eclipse begins: 5:15 a.m. EDT on October 8
Total eclipse begins: 6:25 a.m. EDT
Greatest eclipse: 6:55 a.m. EDT
Moon Sets: 7:19 a.m. EDT
Total eclipse ends: 7:24 a.m. EDT
Partial eclipse ends: 8:34 a.m. EDT

So go to bed early tonight so you can get up and check out the eclipse!
