Wednesday’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 Wednesday, February 1 st

Do you know that giraffes and rats can last longer without water than camels

Did you also know the dot on top of the letter 'i' is called a tittle

Welcome to the Month of February We are now 1/2 through the school year with 5 months to go!

1) Today's weather calls for sunny skies again and a high of only 4 degrees. The forecast tells us that we will be having even more sunny skies tomorrow with a cool temperature of 4 degrees again! BBBUUUURRRRRR

Rumour has it there could be snow on Friday!

2) The Royal Oak Open House is tonight! 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. Remember your assigned zone!

3) Health Fact:

Foods that don't expire contain unnatural preservatives, additives, and chemicals that deteriorate your body. Focus instead on fruits, vegetables, lean meats, whole grains, low-fat dairies, and above all, moderation in whatever you eat.

4) Welcome our new teacher Librarian Mr. Ball who will join us in in two weeks as our new teacher librarian.

5) And for today’s joke of the day:

Q: A man arrived in a small town on Friday. He stayed for two days and left on Friday. How is this possible?
A: His horse's name is Friday!

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