Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, August 23, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of around 88 degrees.

This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Safety Patrol.



Today is...

National Spongecake Day!

On this Day in History:

In 1902, pioneering cookbook author Fannie Farmer, who changed the way Americans prepare food by advocating the use of standardized measurements in recipes, opens Miss Farmer's School of Cookery in Boston. In addition to teaching women about cooking, Farmer later educated medical professionals about the importance of proper nutrition for the sick.

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."

A reminders for all of our Roadrunners about campus safety as we start back this year. Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. That means, walk and don't run. Also remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
Your teachers will be discussing playground safety with you before you go to recess and lunch. We want everyone to be sure and remember to play safe 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.
And lastly, 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 you 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!”
