Groton Area Elementary School Daily Announcements
May I have your attention please for the daily announcements. This is ________________________.
Good morning, today is Wednesday, August 31, 2011.
Pop Idell would have had a birthday today. He is considered the father of modern volleyball. In other words, how we play volleyball today was invented by this man. The 100th anniversary of the volleyball tournament in his name takes place in Pennsylvania this year. In what year was the first Pop Idell tournament held? The answer is on the bottom of the announcements that can be seen on the Tiger Talk Blog.
We are finalizing the time for our laptop giveaway. 4 lucky people who took the Dakota Step Test last spring will be winning a laptop later this week.
Did you know that we have read over three hundred and fifty thousand words in the books we have taken AR tests on?
The math problem of the week is back again in the library. Remember you can’t win fabulous prizes unless you turn in the answer to the problem each week.
Students not in morning OST should not be arriving at school before 8 AM as there is no supervision.
Students, .please get your handbook sheet signed and turned in as soon as possible.
Here is the lunch menu for today: chicken nuggets, mashed potatoes, corn, tea bun, fruit, and milk.
Breakfast for tomorrow: toasted bagel, fruit, juice, and milk
Please stand, face the flag, put your hand over your heart and recite the pledge of allegiance with me: 1…2…3…4…5
I Pledge Allegiance to the flag
of the United States of America
and to the Republic
for which it stands,
one Nation under God,
with liberty and justice for all.
Thank you and have a good day.
