Morning Announcements: Thursday, May 7th, 2020

Good Morning Bobcats!!!

Today is known as the National Day of Prayer.  It is observed annually on the first Thursday of May.  People of many different faiths join in prayer on this day.  Let us truly remember to give thanks for the things we have and pray for those who may be facing hard times during this pandemic. 


Has anyone made it a day yet without their phones, computers, or TV’s?  Remember it’s Screen Free Week.  Give it a try for just ONE day.  I dare you!

This week is also known as National Pet Week.  If you’d like everyone to see how special your pet is just send your photos to Mrs. Christiansen’s email at and she’ll upload them to the school website for everyone to see!


·       Interesting Fact of the Day:  Did you know that a standard pencil has enough graphite to write roughly 45,000 words or draw a line 35 miles long?  WOW!



Joke of the Day:  

One day the teacher said to her student, “Didn't I tell you to stand at the end of the line?” The student replied, “I tried but there was someone already there!”
