Today is Thursday, October 10, 2013. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of about 68 degrees.
This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. McWilliam's Class.
Next week, Mr. Hernandez's class will be leading up in the pledge.
World Porridge Day!
On this day in 1845, The United States Naval Academy opens in Annapolis, Maryland, with 50 midshipmen students and seven professors.
The sky is blue because when sunlight collides with our atmosphere, colors of the shortest wavelengths (violet and blue) are scattered - and our eyes are more sensitive to see blue.
The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.
One is an effective citizen by doing things that:
• Remind us of our heritage
• Involve us in the democratic process
• Support individuals with a special responsibility for keeping the country strong
• Help us better understand the workings of our government
• Promote a sense of community
• Keep individuals and families strong
According to Thomas Jefferson, Founding Father and third U.S. president, "It is strangely absurd to suppose that a million of human beings, collected together, are not under the same moral laws which bind each of them separately."
This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
