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 March 1st, 2021.  

8th grade boys playing basketball this year...reminder that your first practice is today right after school until 5:00 here at the middle school.  If you have any questions please get a hold of Coach Belill.

 There will be Science Olympiad practice tomorrow, Tuesday March 2 until 4:20 in Mr. Wertz’s room. 

Another reminder that MSU is hosting a Virtual Girl’s Math and Science Day on Saturday, March 20th, 2021 from 1:00-4:15 pm EST.  Registration is open online through MSU.    

Student Council decided to treat you with one more week of trying to find the Marauder around the school. If you spot him, it is VERY IMPORTANT that you don’t shout out “there he is” or tell your friends….that actually decreases your chance of getting candy, right? Friday, he was hiding amongst the cheerleading trophies in the trophy case outside of the gym. Our winners for Friday are Jayce H, Evan N, and Gabby C. I wonder where he’s at today! Here’s a little riddle to help you find him today: 

→ When the marauder needs to vent his frustrations, he seeks a teacher to try out poetry solutions. 

Happy Birthday to Lee F and Abigail T!  Have a great day Guys!!!🎈 

Here’s our quote for the week from the German poet and playwright Johann Wolfgang Van Goethe: 

“Knowing is not enough; we must apply.  Willing is not enough; we must do.”.  Just think of everything that this applies to, from our effort at school to acting with kindness.  We must apply!  We must do!!  And that’s your Motivational Monday Moment!

Happy Monday!

And now it’s time for our Science Fact of the Week:

Fact: Australia is wider than the MOON!!!

Although the Moon is about as wide as Australia, it is actually much bigger when you think in terms of surface area. ... The land area of Australia is some 7.69 million square kilometers. But the surface area of the Moon is 37.94 million square kilometers, about five times the area of Australia

Have a terrific Thursday.  Let’s make today RIDICULOUSLY amazing!
