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 Monday, June 5th, 2017 and here is what is happening at 751 Travino Lane.


Did you know that honey is the only natural food which never spoils?


Did you also know bulletproof vests, fire escapes, windshield wipers, and laser printers were all all invented by women?


Riddle:   What is at the end of a rainbow?


Answer:  The letter ‘w’


Fact: Enamel, found on our teeth, is the hardest substance in the human body.  Make sure you take good care of your teeth!!


1) Today's weather:   It’s a sunny today so make sure to put on your sunscreen. It’s currently 18 degrees out there with a 10% chance of rain.  This afternoon it’s expected to drop down to 15 degrees with a 20% 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: 9 more days until all library books are due for the year.  You are expected to have all your books 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.  The earlier you start looking the easier it will be to correct this issue.  


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 happening here on 751 TV
