Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 70 of school on this Friday, December 5, 2014. The forecast calls for cloudy skies and rain today with a high of about 62 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Heiland's class.


Today is...
National Sacher Torte Day (Sacher Torte is a dense, bittersweet chocolate spongecake covered with a thin layer of chocolate traditionally made in Germany.)

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1839, Union General George Armstrong Custer is born in Harrison County, Ohio. Although he is best known for his demise at the hands of the Lakota and Cheyenne Indians at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, Montana, in 1876, Custer built a reputation as a dashing and effective cavalry leader during the Civil War.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A large woodpecker can peck as fast as 20 times a second and up to 12,000 times a day.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.
  • Be kind 
  • Be compassionate and show you care 
  • Express gratitude 
  • Forgive others 
  • Help people in need
According to Charles Lamb, English essayist, "The greatest pleasure I know is to do a good action by stealth, and to have it found out by accident."

Today ends 4th grade week. Next is 5th grade week.

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

Winter Wonderland
Date has been changed to Next Wednesday, Dec. 10th. from 5:00-7:00

Pajama Drive
On-Track is working to collect new Pajamas to help kids in need. Donate NEW pajamas in room 61.

Talent Show
It's time to start thinking about the Talent Show. Applications to audition will be handed out next week.  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.

Running Club
Running Club is cancelled for today.

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!”
