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, November 25th, 2019. Please stand for the pledge: I pledge allegiance to the flag …
For this week’s Kindness Challenge we’re still thinking of being thankful. Let’s be thankful for the opportunity to learn and yes that even means math! It’s a privilege that not everybody in this world enjoys.
Cell phones must be placed in your locker and turned off as soon as you get into school. If you need to call a parent for ANY reason you must do so from the school office.
If you have a plastic ornament that you would like to donate to our tree please bring it in to the office. We are also accepting new hats, gloves, socks and scarves for the student council to donate to those in need.
And now it’s time for Manic Mystery Monday, Teachers please call Extension 1420 when you have heard the entire question and remember, NO HELPING:
Question: Which president was the first to officially give a turkey a presidential pardon
Answer: Ronald Reagan
Fun Facts: John F. Kennedy was the first president on record for unofficially sparing a Turkey in 1963. But it wasn’t until the Reagan administration in 1987 that a turkey was given an official presidential pardon as a joke. The turkey was spared and put into a petting zoo. In 1989 George H. Bush made it an annual tradition and each president following him has carried on the tradition.
Have a marvelous Monday! And remember, it’s always a great day to have a great day!
