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 Wednesday, June 7th, 2017 and here is what is happening at 751 Travino Lane.


Did you know Walking against the wind, in the water, or while wearing a backpack burns about 50 more calories per hour than walking with no resistance. People who wear pedometers also tend to burn more calories than those without one.  


Did you also know that unless food is mixed with saliva you can’t taste it?


Riddle:  A boy fell off a 100 foot ladder, but he didn’t get hurt.  Why not?


Answer: He was only on the first step.


Fact: Apples are more effective at waking the body up in the morning than coffee.


1) Today's weather:   Mainly sunny today! Currently it’s 14 degrees out there with a slight chance of rain.  This afternoon, 19 degrees with a with a slightly higher 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.  


5)  Finished with your book?  Drop it off in the Learning Commons and help you class win the book return competition!  


6)  End of the Year Library Book Return:  7 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 ice-cream sundaes!  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.


If you’re wondering why your books are due back so early, well, it has to do with the 15 thousand books we have in the Learning Commons.  Mr. Ball and Ms. Rayner need to make sure that every book is accounted for and this takes a lot of time.  We can help them by making sure we take the time to look for and return our books as soon as possible.


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
