ROMS TV Announcements


Good afternoon Royal Oak and welcome to the first day of June (the first day of the last month of school)!  Here are the News stories you have been waiting for.  Today is Thursday, June 1st, the 152nd day of 2017 and here is what is happening at 751 Travino Lane.


Did you know that the months that start on a Sunday will always have a Friday the 13th?


Did you also know that your body has enough iron in it to make a metal nail 3 inches long?  


Riddle:  Mr. Scott has 4 daughters.  Each of his daughters has 1 brother.  How many children does Mr. Scott have?  


Answer: He has 5 children, all of the daughters have the same 1 brother.  


Fact:  For those that have trouble sleeping, researchers say that 1 week of camping, without electronics, resets our biological body clock and synchronizes our melatonin hormones with sunrise and sunset.   


1) Today's weather:   Mainly cloudy today with some sunny breaks expected in the afternoon. It’s currently 12 degrees out there with a 40% chance of rain.  This afternoon it’s expected to reach 16 degrees with a 30% chance of rain.  


2)   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.   


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


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


5)  Having troubles finding a good book to read?  Visit our Learning Commons.  There is a new display called “Reading the North” just as you enter.  Check it out!


6)  End of the Year Library Book Return: All library books are due back by Friday June 16th.  The 1st, 2nd and 3rd class to bring back all of their books - including teachers - wins a prize!  Start looking for those books now and speak with Mr. Ball or Mrs. Rayner if you are unable to locate your books.


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