Good Morning Rock Springs School!


Today is Friday, February 14, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 81 degrees.

Pledge: 


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Sylliaasen's class.

Announcements:


Today is...
Ferris Wheel Day , Library Lovers Day, National Have A Heart Day, , and many more.

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1929, Sir Alexander Fleming was a young bacteriologist when an accidental discovery led to one of the great developments of modern medicine. Having left a plate of staphylococcus bacteria uncovered, Fleming noticed that a mold that had fallen on the culture had killed many of the bacteria. He identified the mold as penicillium notatum, similar to the kind found on bread. On February 14, 1929, Fleming introduced his mold by-product called penicillin to cure bacterial infections.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
There are more living organisms on the skin of a single human being than there are human beings on the surface of the earth.

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."

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!”
