Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 109 of school on this Friday, February 12, 2016. The forecast calls for sunny skies, with high of about 87 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Kindergarten to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
Extraterrestrial Culture Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1809, Abraham Lincoln is born in Hodgenville, Kentucky. Lincoln, one of America's most admired presidents, grew up a member of a poor family in Kentucky and Indiana. He attended school for only one year, but thereafter read on his own in a continual effort to improve his mind. As an adult, he lived in Illinois and performed a variety of jobs including stints as a postmaster, surveyor and shopkeeper, before entering politics. Lincoln became our 16th president in 1861.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

  • Do your share to make your school and community better 
  • Cooperate 
  • Get involved in community affairs 
  • Stay informed; vote 
  • Be a good neighbor 
  • Obey laws and rules 
  • Respect authority 
  • Protect the environment 
  • Volunteer
According to Calvin Coolidge, 30th American president, "Character is the only secure foundation of the state."

This week is 5th grade week in the library.

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,
