It's Earth Week
around the world and at Royal Oak we are recognizing it with several activities that your teachers will be going over with you.  This is our chance to join in and help make a change to our environment and the community we live in.  It is the little things we can do every day that make a difference to reduce our energy consumption.
Today's challenge is: Lights out at Lunch - While eating lunch in your classroom turn off all lights and power, do not use the microwave, or computers etc. Let's do our part Royal Oak!

Creatures of Habitat - Thank you to all the grade 6 and 7 students who participated and volunteered for the Creatures of Habitat last Thursday.
