Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 116 of school on this Friday, February 27, 2015. The forecast calls for cloudy skies today, with a chance for showers late in the day and high of about 68 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Kindergarten class.


Today is...
Inconvenience Yourself Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1827, a group of masked and costumed students dance through the streets of New Orleans, Louisiana, marking the beginning of the city's famous Mardi Gras celebrations.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Half of the world’s oxygen is made in the ocean.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. When you think about trustworthiness, think "true blue".
  • Be honest 
  • Don't deceive, cheat, or steal 
  • Be reliable and do what you say you'll do 
  • Have the courage to do the right thing 
  • Build a good reputation 
  • Be loyal; stand by your family, friends, and country
According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist, philosopher and poet, "Trust people and they will be true to you; treat them greatly and they will show themselves great."

Running Club
Cancelled this week

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!”
