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 Tuesday, June 6th, 2017 and here is what is happening at 751 Travino Lane.


Did you know that there is a medical term for ‘runny nose’?  It’s Rhinorrhea.


Did you also know that each of the suits on a deck of cards represents the four major pillars of the economy in the middle ages: heart represented the Church, spades represented the military, clubs represented agriculture, and diamonds represented the merchant class.


Riddle:  If you were given three jelly beans and were told that you could only have one every half hour, how long would it take to eat all three jelly beans?


Answer: 1 hour!  Eat the first jelly bean right away, then half an hour later eat the second, then half an hour after that eat the last one.    


Fact: If you start counting at one and spell out the numbers as you go, you won't use the letter "A" until you reach 1,000.


1) Today's weather:   It’s another sunny day today! Currently it’s 14 degrees out there with a 20% chance of rain.  This afternoon it’s expected to reach 21 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:  Do you have books signed out under your name?  Are you finished with them?  Why not return them now!  8 more school 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 - win 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 for your class to win.    


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
