Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 60 of school on this Friday, November 14, 2014. The forecast calls for cloudy cloudy skies today with a high of about 70 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. McDowell's classes to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mr. Horstman's classes.


Today is...
Loosen Up, Lighten Up Day, and National American Teddy Bear Day, and National Pickle Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1851, Moby-Dick, a novel by Herman Melville about the voyage of the whaling ship, is published. Moby-Dick is now considered a great classic of American literature and contains one of the most famous opening lines in fiction: "Call me Ishmael."

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A Shrimp's heart is in its head.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.

  • Do what you are supposed to do 
  • Plan ahead 
  • Persevere: keep on trying! 
  • Always do your best 
  • Use self-control 
  • Be self-disciplined 
  • Think before you act; consider the consequences 
  • Be accountable for your words, actions, and attitudes 
  • Set a good example for others

According to Michel de Montaigne, French essayist, "The value of life is not in the length of days, but in the use we make of them; a man may live long yet very little."


Remember that Report Card data is due by 5pm today.

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!”
