Today is Pizza Day! $2.50 per slice, and San Pelligrino will be available for $2.00. For pizza order today, we will call the hallway that has the cleanest outside ground zone first.

Congratulations to Youth in Action members Sadie G, Chelsea M and Galina K, who started our non-perishable food drive for the We Scare Hunger campaign.  These girls collected 160 cans of food and non-perishable food items.  Please bring in food to help feed our hungry children and families.  There will be a contest running to see which hallway can bring in the most non-perishable items.  The Raven hallway is now in the lead with 160 items thanks to these girls.  Food will be collected every day from your classroom by Youth in Action members.  Last year we were able to donate 1500 items.  Let's beat that this year!

Screamfest tickets on sale today 1:16 pm outside the office. $5.00 each Please remember that students must be in the company of an adult to be admitted to Screamfest.

There is a grade 6 Trumpet sectional today at 1:16 in the Band room. 

All Pro Bro participants please meet with Ms.Broome in Rm. 217 at the first recess. 

Canteen today: On sale at recess - Cookies $1.00, smoothies 50 cents


Congratulations to the grade 7/8 girls soccer team on their strong performance in their tournament yesterday. The girls showed great chemistry and sportsmanship and finished their season in fine fashion. Great job girls!

There will be an important meeting for all boys playing on the soccer team today at FIRST recess in the gym. All players must attend and know how they are getting to the tournament today and home.

Sports equipment has been put out for students the past month. Unfortunately the equipment has NOT been returned to the bin it lives in. Mr. Menzies has bought new equipment for recess but students need to help return it to the ball bin after recess or this opportunity will not last. Please return all recess equipment to the ball bin after using it at recess time and we can all enjoy it for the rest for the year.

ROMS TV NEWS @ 12:47

Good afternoon Royal Oak! Here is your TV News stories for Thursday, October 20th

Did you know the most commonly used letter in the alphabet is the letter “E”?

There are now 8 days until Screamfest 2016! Get your tickets fast! Remember students need to have parents attend as this is a family event! The Haunted Walk is bigger, and much scarier than last year! You do not want to miss out on this great event!

1) Reminder to students there is to be no selfies or photo taking with your phones on school grounds unless you have direct permission from your teacher.

2) Screamfest is needing your help with music! There is a Survey Monkey that your teachers know about with only 4 questions. Please go to the link that your teachers have to input your choice of music.

3) Cadets? If you are in Air, Army or Sea Cadets, we are looking for you for the Remembrance Day assembly See Mr. Bergeron.

4) Reminder Tomorrow is a Pro D day which means no school! Teachers will be in study sessions.

5) As of this week, ROMS News will not broadcast on Fridays as it is much too busy with pizza day!

6) There is a grade 6 Trumpet sectional today at 1:16 in the Band room. 

7) Drop Everything and Read Challenge: Monday, October 24 is BC School Library Day. To celebrate school libraries and the freedom to read, ROMS students will participate in the 10th annual Drop Everything and Read Challenge.  Last year over 70,000 students participated in BC.  This year the goal is to have 100,000 students participating.  Visit the Learning Commons before 11:00 if you don't already have a book to read.
