Good afternoon Royal Oak!  Here are the News stories you have been waiting for.  Today is Thursday, May 18th, 2017 and here is what is happening at 751 Travino Lane.

Do you know that when athletes raise their head and arms in victory or slump their shoulders in defeat, that these actions are innate behaviours and occur worldwide.  Blind athletes who have never seen theses gestures do them as well!

Riddle:  Two girls have the same parents and were born at the same hour of the same day of the same month, but they are not twins. How can this be possible?

Answer:  They were not born in the same year.  

 1) Today's weather:   This morning it’s 10 degrees out there with a mix of sun and cloud and a 20% chance of rain.  A mix of sun and cloud in the afternoon, and a chance of reaching 14 degrees.          

2) Health Facts: Borborygmus is the scientific name for when your stomach growls.  (bor·bo·ryg·mus)

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) Do you know that we know more about the surfaces of Mars and the moon than we do about the bottom of our oceans?
