A grade in the shade

 For a brief moment Monday, the sun didn’t shine so bright over our old Kentucky home.  But even in the shade, Shelby County students found an opportunity to blossom and grow.

Across the district students filed out of their classrooms, protective eye wear and thinking caps in tote, ready to witness and learn from a rare planetary occurrence.

As the planet aligned just right, placing the moon between the Bluegrass State and the sun, an ominous light surrounded students gazing up in wonder.
