Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 141 of school on this Friday, April 17, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies today, with high of about 81 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from _ to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
Blah! Blah! Blah! Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1970, with the world anxiously watching, Apollo 13, a U.S. lunar spacecraft that suffered a severe malfunction on its journey to the moon, safely returns to Earth. On April 11, the spacecraft left Earth with the mission of landing on the moon. Two days into the mission, disaster struck, and the astronauts transmitted the now famous message, "Houston, we've had a problem here," Diligence, ingenuity, and courage in the face of danger helped these astronauts and controllers on Earth scrambled to come up with emergency procedures. On April 17, 1970, the crippled Apollo 13 returned to Earth.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

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.
  • RSU Friday
  • Tomorrow is RSU Friday. Be sure to wear you Rock Springs color to show your school spirit and pride. We look forward to seeing everyone in the Character Counts Quad for morning assembly.

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