Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, December 14, 2012. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a slight chance of showers and a high of around 57 degrees.


This morning, we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mr. Horstman's class to lead us with the pledge. 


Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Zacharias' first grade for the pledge.

December 14th is officially, "Monkey Day".

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1911, Norwegian Roald Amundsen becomes the first explorer to reach the South Pole, beating his British rival, Robert Falcon Scott.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

A warm frog makes faster croaking noises than a cold frog.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, the fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange:
To be Fair, remember to listen to people with an open mind, don't blame others for your mistakes, and never take advantage of other people.
According to a German proverb, “ To blame is easy; to do it better is difficult.”

The Can-Do Food drive is underway. We have passed the half way mark! We currently have 526 cans and need 474 more to reach our goal of 1,000. Keep bringing in those cans of food and other non-perishable items to help those in need! A big kudos goes to Mr. Truett's class for going the extra mile in bringing in items!

A message from Mr. Plunkett - Due to the weather, Running Club will be cancelled for today.

From PTA - Candy Gram sales start today after school in the MPR. Candy Gram deliveries will start on Monday.

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