Bronco Chronicles

Volume 19, Week 1/23-1/27

Lead Learner's Message

Goooooood evening #BroncoStrong faulty and staff. The twenty-first week of school has been terrific! This past week I challenged the kids to a principal book challenge. The goal is for a child to read The Graveyard Book, take the AR test and come talk to me about the book. Currently the book has been checked out of the library, but I found two additional copies and they will be in the library on Monday. I am looking forward to assisting a student while they are PRINCIPAL FOR A DAY!


I hope you had an eventful weekend, now let's make the upcoming week count! Don't forget to stay #BroncoStrong!

Fun Facts



  • Rabbits and parrots can see behind themselves without even moving their heads!

  • Butterflies taste food by standing on top of it! Their taste receptors are in their feet unlike humans who have most on their tongue.
  • Most of the dust in your home is actually dead skin! Yuck!
  • Although the Stegosaurus dinosaur was over 9 metres long, its brain was only the size of a walnut.
  • Humans get a little taller in space because there is no gravity pulling down on them.
  • Because of the unusual shape of their legs, kangaroos and emus struggle to walk backwards.
  • A hippopotamus may seem huge but it can still run faster than a man.
  • Sneezing with your eyes open is impossible.
  • The trickiest tongue twister in the English language is apparently "Sixth sick sheik’s sixth sheep’s sick". Give it a try and see for yourself.
