Announcements 2/24/2020

Good Morning staff and students  Welcome to Ovid-Elsie Middle School where we are inspiring life-long learners to achieve their full potential and excel in a changing world.  Today is Monday February 24th, 2020.  Please stand for the pledge: I pledge allegiance to the flag …

  • The Kindness Challenge this week is about being a good friend.  It’s easy to have a bad day and hit out at the people who are closest to you but that’s taking advantage of the friendship.  Treat your closest friends with at least the courtesy that you would show a respected stranger.

  • Attention girls: if you like science, math, or engineering, MSU is having a Girls' STEM day full of activities where you get to work directly with MSU scientists. The event is this Saturday the 28th at MSU and there are flyers with more information in the office. 

  • We have one student birthday today:  Happy Birthday to Lindsey W. Hope that it’s a great day Lindsey!

  • Finally a reminder that tomorrow we have class colour day so wear blue if you are 6th grade, orange for 7th and black for 8th.

  • And now it’s time for Manic Mystery Monday.  Teacher’s listen to the entire question before calling 1420 with your answer:

Question: On November 13th, 2000, the Michigan State Basketball team broke which teams 1,270 game winning streak?

Answer:  The Harlem Globetrotters.

Fun Facts:  Charlie Bell scored 21 points as defending national champion Michigan State held off a late rally for a 72-68 exhibition victory over the Harlem Globetrotters

Have a marvelous Monday!  And remember it’s always a great day to have a great day!

  • The Kindness Challenge this week is about being a good friend.  Being a good friend means that when you are told something in confidence that you keep it private; unless, of course, that not telling an adult could hurt your friend. 

  • Don’t forget that MSU is having a Girls' STEM day full of activities where you get to work directly with MSU scientists this Saturday from 1-5pm.

  • The Pre-Festival Band concert is tomorrow night at 6pm.  Stay afterwards for the JC Ready to Rally Benefit Basketball Game at 7pm with donations at the door.

  • Wear Green and White Wednesday or your JC Orange tomorrow.

  • The 8th grade boys just concluded an undefeated season! A perfect 17 wins 0 losses! Coach would like to thank his players for all the dedication, drive, determination and hustle. When you hustle good things happen! You guys made it fun and easy to coach. Thanks guys I am very proud of you!

  • Reminder there is a special student council meeting tomorrow just for the 8th grade members. Same time & place as usual.
