On April 8th 2024, Excitement filled the air at Schulze Academy as students gathered on the school grounds to witness a remarkable celestial event: a solar eclipse. With safety glasses in hand, eager K-8 grade students awaited the rare moment when the moon would pass in front of the sun, casting a shadow over the earth.

As the eclipse waned and daylight returned, students left with a newfound appreciation for the wonders of the universe and a memorable experience to cherish for years to come.
