Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, March 7, 2014. The forecast calls for fair skies with a high of about 68 degrees.


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

Next week, Mrs. Laquindanum's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
World Book Day

On this Day in History:
Mr. Watson, come here, I need you. On this day in 1876, 29-year-old Alexander Graham Bell receives a patent for his revolutionary new invention--the telephone. "Mr. Watson, come here, I need you" were the first words to ever be spoken into a telephone.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The information stored on an iPod Nano would fill up eight pickup truckloads of paper.

Hearts for Huntingtons
Rock Springs has sold 804 hearts! That's $800!

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.
  • RSU Friday
  • Tomorrow is RSU Friday/ Since we will be having awards all morning, we will NOT be having the assembly on the grass. Please plan on wearing your Cat in the Hat hats to your awards assembly. There will also be a special presentation at the awards by Mrs. McDowell's class.

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
