Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, February 1, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of around 76 degrees.


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


Next week we will be joined by Ms. Peter's class for the pledge.

February 1st is officially, "National Freedom Day."

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1884, the first portion, or fascicle, of the Oxford English Dictionary (OED), considered the most comprehensive and accurate dictionary of the English language, is published. Today, the OED is the definitive authority on the meaning, pronunciation and history of over half a million words, past and present.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Your Brain is about 3/4 water.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, the third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green:
Do what you are supposed to do • Plan ahead • Persevere: keep on trying! • Always do your best • Use self-control • Be self-disciplined • Think before you act — consider the consequences • Be accountable for your words, actions, and attitudes • Set a good example for others 
According to a Chinese proverb, "Teachers open the door, but you must walk through it yourself."

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