Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, February 8, 2013. The forecast calls for cloudy skies and a chance of showers with a high of around 55 degrees.


This morning, we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Ms. Peters class to lead us with the pledge. 


Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Laquindanum's class for the pledge.

February 8th is officially, "Read in the Bathtub Day".

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1955, John Grisham, the best-selling author known for his legal thrillers, is born in Jonesboro, Arkansas. Grisham’s books have sold over 250 million copies worldwide, and over half a dozen of his novels have been turned into films.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Frog bones grow new rings as they age, just like a tree!

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, the fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color Orange.

This is the Season of Non-violence:

Your word for the day is Caring
According to Peter McWilliams, “Nonviolence toward the self is caring for oneself. Self-love a crowning sense of self-worth ... it is what the Greeks call reverence for the self.” Real caring is not just what we say, but what we do. Make a list of at least five ways that you can take better care of yourself. Practice at least one today.

Good Luck to our RSU Math Field Day Mathletes. They will be competing tomorrow at Mission Middle School. 

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