ROMS TV Announcements

Good afternoon Royal Oak! Here are the News stories you have been waiting for.  Today is Thursday, February 23 and here is what is happening at 751 News! .

Do you know  a group of frogs is called an army

Did you also a group of rhinos is called a crash

1) Today's weather calls for sunny skies and a high of 6 degrees.  YES!  The forecast tells us that we will have rain clouds tomorrow with a temperature of 5 degrees.

2) Health Fact:

An hour’s sleep could make you happier than $60,000

What would it take to make you happier? A better job? A larger salary? Well, according to a US study by psychologist Daniel Kahneman and his colleagues, an increase in household income actually has little effect on your daily mood. In fact, the study suggests that getting one extra hour of sleep each night does more for your daily happiness than a $60,000 raise

3)   Feb 23,  that’s today,   the judges have been out checking the school grounds.  The hallway with the cleanest outdoor zone is _________

4) Gr 8's. The Ski trip is full speed ahead. See Mr. Kenny ASAP for details

5)  Grade 8’s!  The Yearbook wants your baby photo! Email your photo to Ms.C

6)  The World Famous Royal Oak Talent show will be March 3. ! Talk to  Ms Espedido if you are interested.

7)  Plastic!  Remember to reduce your consumption of plastic items and plastic bags!  We know from our assembly the concerns with plastic in our environment. Use reusable containers.

9)  Grade 8’s - reminder that Claremont will be here today  to give out course selection forms.  Be sure to get them filled out, signed and back to your homeroom teacher.

10)  Pink Day was a big success.   Was great to see so many of you wearing Pink!  Well done RO for doing the right thing.

11) And for today’s joke of the day:

Q: Did you hear about the race between the lettuce and the tomato? A: The lettuce was a "head" and the tomato was trying to "ketchup"!

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

Thanks for making ROMS TV your #1 station! If it is happening, it is here on 751 TV
