Science is awesome 🌙 Our view of the actual #eclipse2017 wasn't that great today, but the solar phenomenon left a perfectly circular sun dog completely visible to the naked eye! Sun dogs are formed when light refracts and scatters off of ice crystals in the sky. Pretty cool.
Each student and staff member in Northern Lights Public schools got an awesome #Canada150 shirt before the end of the school year, and if you snap a selfie of you or your kiddos wearing a red NLSD/Canada 150 shirt on your holidays this summer, you could win a selfie stick and mobile lens kit. Just tag us in your post!
Contest time! 🎉 To celebrate #Canada150, we're giving away a selfie stick and mobile lens kit every week throughout the summer, plus one backpack filled with goodies at the end of August. So how you do you enter the hottest contest of the summer? Each Northern Lights student and staff member was given a Canada 150/Northern Lights shirt. Simply snap a selfie of one of these shirts in a unique location, then post that selfie with a comment telling us why that location is special. Make sure to tag us in it (@nlsd69) so we can see it, and you're all set! That's it! We'll pick our favourite post each week to win the weekly prize, and our favourite post of the summer to win the grand prize. 🍁 Need an extra shirt? Come on over to the Division Office in Bonnyville and we'll see if we can find an extra for you.
