Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, March 21, 2014. The forecast calls for fair skies with a high of about 66 degrees.


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

Next week, Mrs. Baiers' and Mrs. Herrera's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
National Common Courtesy Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1871, journalist Henry Morton Stanley begins his famous search through Africa for the missing British explorer Dr. David Livingstone. Seven months later, the expedition entered the African village of Ujiji, found Dr. Livingston, and Mr. Stanley said the now famous words, "Dr. Livingstone, I presume?"

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
It’s not possible to tickle yourself.

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."

Smarter Balanced Testing
The California Department of Education has postponed Smarter Balanced until next 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!”
