Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 131 of school on this Friday, March 20, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies today, with high of about 79 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. McWilliam class to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
National Jump-Out Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1852, Harriet Beecher Stowe's anti-slavery novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, is published. The novel sold 300,000 copies within three months and was so widely read that when President Abraham Lincoln met Stowe in 1862, he reportedly said, "So this is the little lady who made this big war."

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Aluminum is the most common metal in the Earth's crust.

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 African proverb, "In a community, it's better for every person to have a little of something than for one person to have everything."

4th grade week

CAASPP Testing
CAASPP Testing today is Mr. Horstman, Ms. Hernandez, Ms. J. Isherwood, Mr. Plunket, and Mrs. Peters. Also testing is Mrs. Eagleton and Mrs. Baiers in the mini-labs. Be sure to rest, relax, and be ready for the test! 
Teachers - be sure to check your email for an update on testing.

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!”
