Clark Elementary Bulletin for Monday, May 10, 2021
GREETINGS AND SALUTATIONS! Buongiorno CLARK ELEMENTARY! Today is Tuesday, May 11, 2021, it's the 172nd day of school, and it's a Day 2!
THIS DAY IN HISTORY! On this day in 1934, a massive storm sends millions of tons of topsoil flying from across the parched Great Plains region of the United States as far east as New York, Boston and Atlanta. In 1934, over a period of two days, high-level winds caught and carried some 350 million tons of silt all the way from the northern Great Plains to the eastern seaboard. According to The New York Times, even ships some 300 miles offshore saw dust collect on their decks.
VOCABULARY BUILDER-UPPER WORD OF THE DAY The word of the day is massive, which is an adjective that describes something exceptionally large.
What's Cooking? For lunch today, we will be celebrating our May birthdays with a delicious lunch of bread sticks with scrumptious marinara sauce, bakery fresh doughnuts, dining on fruits and veggies, and dumping refreshing ice cold milk down our gullets.
WEATHER The weather today will be outstanding. The high will be in the low sixties and the skies will be crammed full with sunshine.
QUOTE OF THE DAY Marcus Aurelius, Emperor of Rome and Stoic philosopher, once said, “You have power over your mind - not outside events. Realize this, and you will find strength.” Focusing on yourself and your own behavior is a bit of a super-power which can make you almost unstoppable. Choose to make this a phenomenal Tuesday! Please stand for the Pledge of Allegiance.
