Many students, teachers and families had their eyes on the sky as Sherman experienced a rare near total solar eclipse on April 8. 

Certain classes and grade levels observed the celestial event outdoors, while younger students watched a live broadcast from NASA. Across the district, students participated in various activities and lessons to connect the eclipse to classroom learning. Many families took advantage of the opportunity to experience the eclipse with their children out of school as well.
