Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, January 10, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of about 75 degrees.


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

Next week, Mrs. Mallinger's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
National Cut Your Energy Costs Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1920, the League of Nations formally comes into being when the Covenant of the League of Nations, ratified by 42 nations in 1919, takes effect. The League of Nations goal was to be a permanent international body to maintain peace in the postwar world. On this same day in 1946, the League of Nations is dissolved and becomes the United Nations, comprising 51 nations, convenes at Westminster Central Hall in London, England.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The average person has over 1,460 dreams a year.

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 — 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 J.C. Hare, English clergyman and writer, "The greatest truths are the simplest, and so are the greatest men."

Talent Show
The Talent Show is coming to Rock Springs! Auditions will be on Tuesday, January 21st, not the 20th as originally announced.  If you would like to participate, you must fill out an application, have your parents sign it, and turn it in to Mrs. Zacharias or Miss Reynoso by Thursday, January 16th. That's next week! And don't forget to practice, practice, practice.

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!”
