Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 5 of school on this Friday, August 21, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies, with high of about 86 degrees.


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


Today is...
Poet's Day

On this Day in History:
The modern United States receives its crowning star when President Dwight D. Eisenhower signs a proclamation admitting Hawaii into the Union as the 50th state. The president also issued an order for an American flag featuring 50 stars arranged in staggered rows: five six-star rows and four five-star rows. The new flag became official July 4, 1960.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
An alligator may go through 2000 to 3000 teeth in a lifetime.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
This week we introduced the Six Pillars of Character; Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. We can easily remember these words using the Mnemonic, TRRFCC - terrific. Next week we will explore the meaning of each word and the positive impact they can have on our lives.

According to Karen Hartz, CC! coordinator, CHARACTER COUNTS! in Caroline County, “To exercise good character daily is to be morally fit for life.”

Safety First!
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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, you are to 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!
