Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 75 of school on this Friday, December 12, 2014. The forecast calls for rain today with a high of about 60 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. Heiland's class to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Ms. S. Isherwood's class.


Today is...
Gingerbread House Day, and Poinsettia Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1787, Pennsylvania becomes the second state of the United States.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Can-Do Food Drive
The annual Rock Springs Can-Do is here! The food drive will run from December 8th-December 18th. Our goal is 1,000 cans! Our current count is 536.

Running Club
Cancelled today.

Talent Show
It's time to start thinking about the Talent Show. Applications to audition are available.  If you plan to try out, practice and rehearse every day before auditions.  If you want to do something with a friend, you must have time after school to practice together. Auditions are Friday, January 16.

Good Luck
Our RSU basketball is headed to the championships tomorrow. Best of luck to them!


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!”
