Announcements 2/26/2019

Good Morning staff and students welcome back 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 Tuesday February 26th, 2019.  Please stand for the pledge: I pledge allegiance to the flag …

  • Our Kindness Challenge this week is an easy one: SMILE!  When you smile, people treat you differently. You’re viewed as attractive, reliable, relaxed, and sincere and this is because seeing a smiling face activates the region in your brain that process sensory rewards. This suggests that when you view a person smiling, you actually feel rewarded.  So SMILE!!

  • Student Challenge will be combined with the HIGH SCHOOL this week on THURSDAY in the HIGH SCHOOL WOODSHOP from 7:15AM to 7:45AM
