Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 98 of school on this Friday, January 30, 2015. The forecast calls for cloudy skies and a high of about 66 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by the Kindergarten classes.


Today is...
Inane Answering Machine Message Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1933, with the stirring notes of the William Tell Overture and a shout of "Hi-yo, Silver! Away!" The Lone Ranger debuts on Detroit's WXYZ radio station.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Healthy nails grow about 2 cm each year. Fingernails grow four times as fast as toenails.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.
  • Play by the rules 
  • Take turns and share 
  • Be open-minded; listen to others 
  • Don't take advantage of others 
  • Don't blame others carelessly 
  • Treat all people fairly
According to a German proverb, "A single penny fairly got is worth a thousand that are not."

MAP Testing
Testing today is Mrs. Schmottlach and Mrs. Fridell, Mrs. Mallinger, and Mrs. Roberts. Be sure to remember to take your time, read the questions thoroughly, and do your best.

4th grade 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!”
