QISD Witnesses 2024 Eclipse

On April 8, 2024, our QISD community spent an hour after lunch watching the 70 percent solar eclipse. Everyone was provided with glasses to view the sight, and Domingo brought a telescope from the main office over to the football field to get an up-close view of the eclipse. Spencer Warnock took some pictures using his glasses. I heard a lot of “oohs” and “aahs” from students lounging on the grass, watching the spectacle. I had several students ask me if this meant the world was going to end. I assured them I had lived through multiple eclipses in my life and I was still kicking. In science class, we talked about how an eclipse happens, with the moon lining up with the sun to cause the effect of the sun partially disappearing in the midday sky. Several people commented that it seemed to get a little colder while it was happening and you could tell that the sunlight was a little darker. Just another day in the wonder that we call Earth.

Bobcat Club At Questa Alta Vista!


The Bobcat Club was started in February by Ms. Naomi Gomez, Mrs. Connie Martinez, Mrs. Sophia Rael, Mr. Matt Polanco, Mrs. Debra Garcia, and Ms. Adkins. Our mission is to develop strategies to enhance behavior at Alta Vista Elementary School. We encourage students to make positive decisions, and each month they receive rewards as incentives. In March, our music room was transformed with a selection of board games, allowing Bobcat Club members to socialize and enjoy playing games together.
