Morning Announcements: Monday, April 27, 2020

Good Morning Bobcats!!!

Today is National Tell a Story Day!  This day encourages people of all ages to share all kinds of stories. Whether it’s read from a book, one from your imagination, or an actual story from a childhood memory, the day supports gathering with friends and family to share those stories.

Storytelling is an ancient practice used to hand down knowledge from one generation to the next. It’s a wonderful way to pass on family traditions, histories, and long told tales and can be entertaining as well as educational. Some of the very best stories come from real-life experience.  

Many people enjoy listening to their grandparents share their stories about when they were growing up (back in the day).  Spending time telling stories with family, friends, and loved ones is a time for all to learn from each other, to remember, and to grow closer together.


Happy Belated Birthday wishes to 5th Grader, Brianna Klockgether!  Her birthday was April 23rd.  Sorry we missed you, Brianna!  We hope you had a great day!


Happy birthday wishes go out today to 2nd grader, Avery Bohlmann, and to 4th grader, Levi Trucke!  We want to wish you both a birthday filled full of great memories!!!


Interesting Fact of the Day:  Here’s an interesting story that actually happened in Iowa back in 1982.

On January 20, 1982, a 17-year-old fan of Ozzy Osbourne named Mark Neal threw a bat on stage at a Black Sabbath concert in Des Moines. Thinking it was a fake, Ozzy picked up the bat and chomped down—which is when he realized it was the real deal. He went to the hospital for rabies shots immediately after the show.  True story!!!


Joke of the Day:   Q: How excited was the gardener about spring?  A: So excited he wet his plants.


The COU Student Council would like to hear some good jokes!  If you have a good joke you’d like to share submit them to Mrs. Christiansen’s email address: and we will share them with everyone in our morning announcements and you’ll get the credit!


KINDNESS ROCKS!!!  The Student Council has started a project called “Kindness ROCKS”.  We’d love you to join in on the FUN!  Find some smooth rocks and paint them with bright colors.  Add a message of encouragement and then go “hide” your rocks around Charter Oak, Ute, or Soldier.  When someone finds your rock we ask that they share it with everyone on Facebook and then go and re-hide it or keep it and “hide” another rock that they’ve made!  Please join in on the fun and see how many rocks you find, as well!  If you’d like to see some rocks that the Student Council students have made check out their Facebook page:  Charter Oak-Ute Student Council!



That’s all for today.  Remember stay safe and stay healthy!  Look for our morning announcements everyday until the end of the school year!
