Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 156 of school on this Friday, May 8, 2015. The forecast calls for cloudy skies and rain today, with high of about 61 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mr. Plunkett to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
No Socks Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1884, Harry S. Truman is born in Lamar, Missouri. The son of a farmer, Truman could not afford to go to college. He joined the army at the relatively advanced age of 33 in 1916 to fight in World War I. After the war, he opened a haberdashery in Kansas City, and in 1922, he entered Missouri politics.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Warthogs don’t have warts.

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 Persian proverb, "If you want a rose, you must respect the thorns." 

Split schedule this week (teachers see your email/Bucket) due to the book fair.
Overdue books need to be turned in! There are 255 overdue notices and that's too many to print. Let's get those books turned in.

MAP Testing
MAP testing today: Mrs. Riley, Mrs. Eagleton and Ms. Peters.

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!"
