Announcements 03/08/2021

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 8th, 2021.  Please stand for the pledge….. 

Student Council are rocking March is Reading Month!  Check your email sometime today to complete the Mystery match-up quiz guessing some of our teacher's favorite middle school books. The top 10 guessers will get their name in the Friday Prize Raffle. 

Friday was our last day finding the Marauder Dude around the school.  He was hiding on the wall in Mr. Powell's office, visible through the glass from the lobby. Congrats to those who found him: Alexis S, Dannika C, & Ben W. You can come down to the office for your prize.  

The 8th grade boys had their first two games of their season this past Saturday.  The B-Team went 1-1 over the weekend.  They lost to a tough Montrose team in their first game 16-32.  Then they won a hard fought game against New Lothrop 17-14.  The A-Team went 2-0 this weekend by beating Mt. Morris by the score of 53-15 and by beating New Lothrop 68-16.  Awesome work to both teams!!! 

There will be science olympiad practice tomorrow, Tuesday March 9th until 4:20 in Mr. Wertz’s room. 

Happy Birthday today to: Collin J, Jason H and Damien C!  Have a great day Guys!!!🎈

 And now we have a March Madness Motivation Monday quote from Michael Jordan: 

“I’ve missed more than 9000 shots in my career. I’ve lost almost 300 games. 26 times I’ve been trusted to take the game winning shot and missed. I’ve failed over and over and over again in my life. And that is why I succeed.”  

Happy Monday!

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 Thursday March 11th, 2021.

Tomorrow we’ll have the prize raffle & tomorrow is Wear Green/St. Patrick’s day attire day. No hats or face paint please. 

Happy Birthday to Daniel P.  Have a great day Buddy!!!🎈 

And now it’s time for our Science Fact of the Week and it’s worthy of a Sci-fi movie:

Fact:. If you took out all the empty space in our atoms, you could fit the entire human race into the volume of a sugar cube!

This is because atoms are 99.9999999999999% empty space. If you could squeeze all the empty space out of all the atoms in all the 7 billion people in the world, you could indeed fit them in the volume of a sugar cube.

 Have a Tremendous Thursday Everybody!  And don’t forget today’s a great day to have a great day!
