2017 Eclipse Across America ::..
The St. Tammany Parish Public School System has plans in place to provide a safe learning experience for our students during the 2017 Eclipse Across America on Monday, August 21.
Our teachers and students will have the opportunity to experience an extremely rare and inspiring event – a partial solar eclipse.
We will be using this “teachable moment” to increase the science literacy of our students. We will be utilizing a variety of resources curated by NASA and STPPS educators to provide an unforgettable learning experience for our students in grades K-12.
