Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 126 of school on this Friday, March 13, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies today, with high of about 90 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Kindergarten classes to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Kindergarten class.


Today is...
Donald Duck Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1781, The German-born English astronomer William Hershel discovers the planet Uranus, the seventh planet from the sun.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Bananas are actually giant herbs - related to the orchid family.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think "The Golden Rule".
  • Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule 
  • Be tolerant and accepting of differences 
  • Use good manners, not bad language 
  • Be considerate of the feelings of others 
  • Don't threaten, hit or hurt anyone 
  • Deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements
According to Ralph C. Smedley, American founder of Toastmasters International, "Whatever your grade or position, if you know how and when to speak, and when to remain silent, your chances of real success are proportionately increased."

5th grade week

CAASPP Testing
CAASPP Testing today is Mrs. McWilliams, Ms. Peters, Ms. S. Isherwood, and Mrs. Riley. Be sure to rest, relax, and be ready for the test!

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!”
