Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 93 of school on this Friday, January 23, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 75 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Zacharias' class.


Today is...

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!”
