Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, March 14, 2014. The forecast calls for fair skies with a high of about 64 degrees.


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

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


Today is...
Pi Day!

On this Day in History:
On March 14, 1879, Albert Einstein is born, the son of a Jewish electrical engineer in Ulm, Germany. Einstein's theories of special and general relativity drastically altered man's view of the universe, and his work in particle and energy theory helped make possible quantum mechanics.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The human brain is 80% water.

Smarter Balanced Testing
The California Department of Education has postponed Smarter Balanced testing for a 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!”
