HOLLADAY, Utah (ABC4 Utah) The first day of class for the Granite School District was eventful with The Great American Solar Eclipse Monday. 

Crestview Elementary students viewed the crescent sun for the first time in their young lives.

“I’ve never seen the solar eclipse before and it’s life changing. It’s just amazing,” fourth grader Sophie Hoggan said. 

For the 600 students, the biggest science lesson of the year was capped with glasses ordered by administration in July. 

“I think it’s cool. It’s really fun to look at with special glasses,” sixth grader Haley Peterson said.

Solar shades aside, sixth grader Kimball Richmond made a pinhole projector to share with his friends.

“You line it up, this little hole you made with the nail and you line it up with the sun,” Richmond said.

School staff spent weeks planning the day’s activities and assignments to make the Great American Solar Eclipse as memorable as possible.

Due to the a historic day, the school gave excused absences for students who stayed home with their parents.
