Clark Elementary Bulletin for Tuesday, March 05, 2024

GREETINGS AND SALUTATIONS! Good morning young bibliophiles! Today is Monday, March 4th, the 118th day of school, and it's March Forth Day. Do you want to be a better person or better at math or a stronger reader? March Forth Day is the perfect time to get started!

THIS DAY IN HISTORY! On this day in 1933, at the height of the Great Depression, Franklin Delano Roosevelt was inaugurated as the 32nd president of the United States. In his famous inaugural address, delivered outside the east wing of the U.S. Capitol, Roosevelt outlined his “New Deal”—an expansion of the federal government as an instrument of employment opportunity and welfare—and told Americans that “the only thing we have to fear is fear itself.”

VOCABULARY BUILDER-UPPER WORD OF THE DAY The word of the day is mimic (mim·ic), which is a verb that means to imitate (a person or manner), especially to entertain or ridicule. Mimic, related to mime ("an entertainer who performs using gestures not speech"), can be traced back to the Greek mimeisthai, "to imitate." Usually when you mimic someone, you imitate them to make fun of them.

WEATHER Today’s weather will be warm and moist. The high will be the low seventies and there's an excellent chance for some rain this afternoon.

WHAT'S COOKING? Today for lunch we will devour an outstanding pizza burrito or an exquisite Italian grilled cheese. These will be served up with some fries and all of your favorite salad bar fixings. You can wash this all down with a carton of refreshing, ice-cold milk. It's going to be dadgum delicious.

QUOTE OF THE DAY Theodore Geisel aka Dr. Seuss, an amazing author, "It’s a troublesome world. All the people who are in it are troubled with troubles almost every minute. You ought to be thankful, a whole heaping lot, for the places and people you’re lucky you’re not." Remember to be grateful for what you have and to be kind to folks because everyone is struggling with something in their life. Choose to make this a truly remarkable Monday!

Please stand for the Pledge of Allegiance!
