Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, April 11, 2014. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today with a high of about 82 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Riley's class.

After break, Mrs. Berns and Ms. Cluka's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
National Pet Day and National D.E.A.R. Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1916, Beverly Cleary was born in McMinnville, Oregon, and, until she was old enough to attend school, lived on a farm in Yamhill, a town so small it had no library. Most well-known for her Ramona books, Beverly Clear has published some 41titles including Ramona the Pest, The Mouse and the Motorcycle, and Dear Mr. Henshaw. Every year on April 11th, we celebrate her birthday by having National D.E.A.R. Day.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A shark can live for six weeks without eating.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
It's Pillars of Character Week at RSU!

Are you a TRRFCC (terrific) student? Remember that TRRFCC students demonstrate Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. RSU students uphold the Six Pillars of Character everyday.

According to Mohandas Gandhi, Indian nonviolent civil rights leader, "The weak can never forgive. Forgiveness is the attribute of the strong."

Ice Cream Sales
The procedure for Friday ice cream sales has changed. Ice cream will now be sold at the entrance door to the cafeteria. To buy ice cream, you must stand in the lunch line. Remember to be quiet and patient. 

Safety First!
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • Remember to play safe on the playground and when the bell rings to line up, walk to your line safely. We do not want anyone running as you could get hurt.
  • When you arrive at school in the morning, remember to sit at the lunch tables. All students are to remain sitting at the lunch tables until the duty teacher says that you may get up.
  • At the end of the day, your teacher will walk you to your designated exit for parent pick-up. If your ride is not there, you need to wait, stay at the front of the school and wait patiently and quietly for your ride.

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
