Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 59 of school on this Friday, November 18, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with high of about 76 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Ms. Peters to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Martinez's class.


Today is...
Mickey Mouse Day

On this Day in History
At exactly noon on this day in 1884, American and Canadian railroads begin using four continental time zones to end the confusion of dealing with thousands of local times. The bold move was emblematic of the power shared by the railroad companies.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. When you think about trustworthiness, think “true blue”.

• Be honest 
• Don’t deceive, cheat, or steal 
• Be reliable — do what you say you’ll do 
• Have the courage to do the right thing 
• Build a good reputation 
• Be loyal — stand by your family, friends, and country

According to Elvis Presley, American rock 'n' roll icon, "Truth is like the sun. You can shut it out for a time, but it ain't goin' away."

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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, you are to 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!"
