Tuesday’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 Tuesday, January 31 st

Do you know that the first day of spring is March 20th?

Did you also know that today is the last working day for Mrs Prevost at Royal Oak Middle School. Be sure to say your goodbye to her sometime today.

1) Today's weather calls for sunny skies and a high of 6 degrees. Yes!! The forecast tells us that we will be having more sunny skies tomorrow with a high of 4 degrees !

We are getting closer to spring!

2) Ms. Mah's puppy, Bosco, got a detention for bad behaviour on Friday at the doggy daycare. He might get expelled.....This is not good!

3) Classes, be sure to return your yellow fruit and vegetable tray back to canteen area for storage.

4) The Royal Oak Open House is tomorrow! This is our chance to show case our school. Let's make sure our classrooms and school grounds are clean and tidy for the community to see! If every class could send out a few students to do a clean up of the school grounds that would be wonderful. Reminder every hallway has a zone to look after.

5) Health Fact:

Teens need 9+ hours of sleep per night for their bodies to function properly. Less than 1/3 of high school students in 2011 reported getting 8 or more hours of sleep per night.

6) Final reminder to drop in to the LC and say your final goodbye to Mrs. Prevost. There may even be a cup cake for you as there has been numerous students bring in a celebration treats to the LC. A farewell to an outstanding educator with 35 years of teaching students in the Saanich School District. We will miss you Mrs Prevost. Happy retirement.
