Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 64 of school on this Friday, December 2, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with high of about 66 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Martinez's to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Kindergarten.


Today is...
National Mutt Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1823, during his annual address to Congress, President James Monroe proclaims a new U.S. foreign policy initiative that becomes known as the "Monroe Doctrine." Primarily the work of Secretary of State John Quincy Adams, the Monroe Doctrine forbade European interference in the American hemisphere but also asserted U.S. neutrality in regard to future European conflicts.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
If humans came in as many sizes as dogs, we'd range from three to eighteen feet tall.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think “The Golden Rule”.

• Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule 
• Be tolerant and accepting of differences 
• Use good manners, not bad language 
• Be considerate of the feelings of others 
• Don’t threaten, hit or hurt anyone 
• Deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements

According to Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens), American humorist, author and journalist, "Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • 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!"
