Dear Parents and Guardians,

I am thrilled to inform you that Castle Rock Elementary will be embarking on a special adventure on April 8th to witness the solar eclipse at The Rock. It's a rare and wonderful opportunity for our students to observe this natural phenomenon!  We are so fortunate to have such easy access to The Rock.   

Here are the details for the day: 

  • Grade levels will enjoy lunch at 11:00 before departing from the school after 11:30.  Students should pack a lunch on this day.   If you would prefer a school lunch on this day.  Please click on this link.  

  • We aim to have our students at The Rock for optimal eclipse viewing by 12:40.

  • Castle Rock Elementary will provide all students with approved glasses for safely viewing the eclipse.

  • Students will return to school by 1:45, concluding this exciting experience.

Benefits of Viewing the Solar Eclipse:

  1. Educational Opportunity: Witnessing a solar eclipse firsthand provides a great learning experience for students about astronomy and the natural world.

  2. Inspiration: Observing such a rare celestial event can spark curiosity, wonder, and imagination in our students.

  3. Community Building: Sharing this event together fosters a sense of unity and togetherness among students and staff at Castle Rock Elementary.

As you are probably already aware, students at CRE frequently climb the rock throughout their years.   We will work with the city to ensure access to The Rock for our students with physical disabilities.   However, if you like to opt your student out of climbing The Rock to view the eclipse, please fill out this form.   If you do not want your student to participate in this opportunity, please fill out this form.   

Thank you for your continued support and involvement in your child's education. Should you have any questions or concerns regarding the solar eclipse viewing event, please feel free to reach out to me or the school office.
