Did you also know:

Thank you to all of our Student Vote Volunteers!  We couldn’t have done it without you; also to our teachers who helped us understand the election process.  This was a community effort - way to go ROMS.  

1) Today's weather:  A wet day expected here at ROMS.  Currently the temperature is sitting at 11 degrees with an 80% chance of precipitation.  This afternoon the temperature hopefully moves up to 12 degrees with a 70% chance of precipitation.  Where has all our sun gone?     

2) Health Facts:

White blood cells are an important part of the body’s immune system.  They defend against certain bacteria, viruses, cancer cells, infectious diseases and other unwanted materials.  Your tonsils are your first line of defense against illness.  They produce white blood cells to help your body fight infection.  the tonsils combat bacteria and viruses that enter your body through your mouth.  Interesting, hey!

3)   There are a lot of school events starting up.  Be sure to listen to the morning announcements to see where you might get involved in your school.   

4)  Keep up your recycling.  Recycling reduces the amount of garbage we send to our landfill.  

5)  Pizza day and chocolate milk is this Friday.   You have to love pizza!!

6) And for today’s Teaser:

A seven letter word that contains thousands of letters?
