  • Total Solar Eclipse ...

    On Monday, April the 8th is our first day back from spring break and we’ll be ready to receive all of our students. 

    On this day we will be experiencing a Solar-Eclipse between the hours of 12:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. with the height of the Solar-Eclipse occurring around 2:00 p.m.  

    Here at Matteson Elementary classrooms and grades will be celebrating the event in various ways. Here are just some of the activities we will be doing:

    Creating sun prints
    Solar eclipse chalk art project
    Study of the Sun 
    Story: Our Very Own Star: The Sun

    All students will be receiving solar-eclipse glasses on Monday. Please reinforce with your students that when they’re making their way home on Monday, whether it be via bus, car, or walking, that they’re being mindful of not looking at the solar eclipse unless they have their solar-eclipse glasses on. This should ideally happen at home with your direct supervision.

    You can also use the link listed below in order to watch the Total Eclipse safely from inside on a device:

  •  All month we here at the Matteson are honoring just some of the great achievements made by African Americans throughout history. Each week we spotlight famous African Americans and the contributions they have made to society. Through trivia contests, projects, school assembly and spirit days, we want to teach our students that greatness is not only found in others but can also be found in themselves.
