Monday’s ROMS TV Announcements

Good afternoon Royal Oak! Here are the News stories you have been waiting for.

This is 751 News and Today is Monday, January 23 rd

Do you know how to eat Kiwifruit?

The answer is: WHOLE!  The skin is actually quite edible - much like the skin of a peach - and very high in fibre, nutrients, and vitamins.  Please encourage the students to eat the kiwifruit whole by eating around it like an apple; it does not need to be peeled prior to consumption. 

Did you also know that Donald Trump is the USA 45th president?

1) Today's weather calls for some sun but mostly cloudy skies and a high of 7 degrees. The forecast tells us that we will be having full sun tomorrow with a high of 8 degrees ! We like the sun!

2) Ms. Mah's Boston terrier puppy was very naughty on the weekend. He chewed up Ms. Mah's favourite slippers. Naughty puppy!!!

3) Reminder to students that January 30 is a non instructional day. So no school for students – how nice!!

4)Reminder, it is expected that all students get their coats on and head on outside for fresh air and exercise during lunch activity time.

5) Taking photos and videos at Royal oak is not allowed unless you have clear permission from the classroom teacher.

6) Classes can expect Kiwi fruit to be delivered this week.

6) And for today’s joke of the day:

Why can't a bike stand up on it's own? Because it is two tired

That concludes our TV news cast for today! Please join us tomorrow for further breaking news stories here on 751 News!

Thanks for making ROMS TV your News station! If it is happening, it is hear on 751 TV
