Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, January 31, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies and possible rain with a high of about 62 degrees.


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

Next week, Mrs. Andrews class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
Inspire Your Heart with Art Day! Today is also the 100th day of school!

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1865, the U.S. House of Representatives passes the 13th Amendment to the Constitution, abolishing slavery in America. The amendment read, "Neither slavery nor involuntary servitude...shall exist within the United States, or any place subject to their jurisdiction."

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Every zebra's stripe pattern is different.

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 Wes Fessler, American writer, "Fairness is man’s ability rise above his prejudices."

Talent Show
Rehearsals for the Talent Show will be today after school at 2:30 in the MPR.

Running Club 
Canceled for today due to the wetness coming from the sky

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!”
