August 21 Eclipse Resources!

On August 21 all of America will experience a solar eclipse. Some areas will witness a total eclipse (when the moon entirely covers the sun); other regions will witness a partial eclipse.

The Bay Area will experience a 76% eclipse, with the moon beginning to cover the sun at 9:01 am, reaching maximum coverage at 10:15 am, and then moving away from the sun at 11:37 am.  

Some schools have made plans for students to go outside and watch the eclipse using special solar eclipse glasses and/or cards for pinhole viewing. Please check your school's website to see what kinds of activities are planned.  

If you want to send your child to school with glasses for viewing the eclipse, please be sure to provide designated solar eclipse glasses. Staring at even a sliver of the sun without adequate protection can cause permanent eye damage. (You can find more information about choosing safe glasses on the American Astronomical Society's website.)

The following websites have lots of layperson-friendly eclipse information to share with your families and friends:

Our School Mission

Welcome! The Mission of Callison Elementary School, in partnership with staff, families and community, is to empower all students to excel in elementary school and prepare for middle school through immersion in an environment that provides a challenging, standards-based curriculum, promotes a desire for learning, builds self-confidence and instills compassion for others.

Callison Students are College Bound!

Our students are hard working cougars, who put their best effort in all they do!  Our goal is for our students to be college and career ready. All students graduating from high school must have the skills and knowledge necessary to assume their positions in the 21st century global economy.  We believe all students have the potential to attend college therefore, it is extremely important that every student receives the opportunity to be educated in a way that prepares him or her for college if he or she chooses to attend.  Today's students need to be prepared wtih communication, collaboration, creativity, leadership, global citizenship and critical thinking skills. We will be incorporating these skills in our lessons on a daily basis.  We are creating a college readiness culture by each classroom adopting a different college. Each classroom will adopt colleges in various ways.
