ROMS TV Script, January 23

Here is your afternoon ROMS TV News  

S1: Hello! I’m ____________________

Today is Tuesday, January 23, and here’s the news about what’s happening at ROMS.  The weather calls for more clouds, some rain showers and a high 7 degrees.  We want spring!

There are now 9 days until we are halfway through the school year.   For those in grade 7, you will soon be looking in grade 8!  Scary thought!

 Did You know?

During the World War I , battery manufacturers decided to classify  batteries     

They decided to use the alphabet for the system, and the smallest-cell batteries were called “A,” and the list went from there: the larger the size, the next number in the alphabet, B, C, and D. As the years passed and battery technology changed, new battery sizes were assigned names. Newly developed smaller batteries were designated AA and AAA for small electronics.  C and D batteries also found a foothold in larger applications. 

But the poor B battery didn’t have a market and pretty much disappeared in the U.S. Although they’re hard to find, A and B batteries are still out there if you look far and wide. B batteries are still used occasionally in Europe for  bicycle lamps, but Energizer says demand is declining so the B battery might eventually disappear.   Now you know!

 Intramurals:     Be sure to sign up your class team for the lunch gym intramurals!  The more that sign up the better!  Great to be a participant!

Open House:  Royal Oak is hosting our annual open house on February the 1st.  If you have a sibling coming into grade 6 next year, this is a chance for them to get to know the school as well as your parents.     

Grade 8’s:  This Wednesday and Thursday is your field trip to Claremont to participate in the Trades information sessions.  The bus leaves at 9:15 sharp!  

Recycling:    Thursday, today, is the day we do the blue bin paper recycling right at the end of block 3.    It is the class responsibility to make this happen as there will no longer be an announcement to remind you.   

Ask your teacher:  What new and creative store did Amazon just open up yesterday?  If your teacher does not know, Google Search it!

News in Sports:   THE INTERNATIONAL OLYMPIC COMMITTEE (IOC) TODAY AGREED TO ADD BASEBALL/SOFTBALL, KARATE, SKATEBOARD, SPORTS CLIMBING AND SURFING TO THE SPORTS PROGRAM  in 2020This concludes our ROMS TV Newscast for today.  If it happens, it happens on ROMS TV

We will see you tomorrow on ROMS News!
