Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 65 of school on this Friday, November 21, 2014. The forecast calls for cloudy skies today with a high of about 69degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Boyne classes.


Today is...
World Hello Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1877, the American inventor, Thomas Edison announces his invention of the phonograph, a way to record and play back sound.

On this day in 1789, North Carolina becomes the 12th state of the United States.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Dolphins and whales are mammals that don't drink water.

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 an Egyptian proverb, "An onion shared with a friend tastes like roast lamb."

Can-Do Food Drive
The annual Rock Springs Can-Do food drive is coming. The food drive will run from December 8th-December 18th. Our goal is 1,000 cans!

Running Club
Cancelled today.

Please remember to turn your iPods in before you leave 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!”
