ROMS TV Script, Tuesday,November 7

Here is your afternoon ROMS TV News  

S1: Hello! I’m ____________________

S2: And I’m _____________________

Today is Tuesday, November 7 and here’s the news about what’s happening at ROMS.  The weather calls for rain tomorrow with a high of 10 degrees.

The Youth in Action "We Scare Hunger" Campaign  wraps up this week.   It is not too late to bring in your food items!  Well done goes to the Thunderbird hallway for their amazing efforts.

Remember the  Amazing Reading Race Contest in the Learning Commons.   In this contest, students do their normal silent reading, and keep track of the number of pages they read.  Keep reading RO!


Friday will be our Remembrance Day Assembly.  All students will be given a poppy on Friday.  We are asking every student to make a donation to the poppy fund.  This a solemn assembly where everyone is silent and respectful.

During the assembly, we will be asking all students and staff to join in the singing of O Canada.


Reminder all students are to go outside during lunch activity time unless you are in a  supervised location such as the LC or gym.  


Reminder of the need to dress for the colder temperatures.  Students will still be expected to go outside during cold days so remember your coats.


Lost and Found.  Students are asked to check the lost and found once you realize an item has been lost.   Do not wait until things have been taken away.


Chromebook Carts.  Reminder to teachers that we now have 4 Chromebook cars in the four hallways.  The Red cart and white carts have to be signed out manually until the calendar is updated.


Thursday, Royal Oak will have our new School Superintendent visit our school.  He will be here at 9 am and wander through the school for about 1 hour.  We are looking forward to showcasing our school.


This concludes our ROMS TV Newscast for today.  If it happens, it happens on ROMS TV
