Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 50 of school on this Friday, November 4, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly skies today with high of about 84 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Mallinger's to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. McDowell class.


Today is...
Use Your Common Sense Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1922, British archaeologist Howard Carter and his workmen discover a step leading to the tomb of King Tutankhamen in the Valley of the Kings in Egypt.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
The sky is blue because when sunlight collides with our atmosphere, colors of the shortest wavelengths (violet and blue) are scattered - and our eyes are more sensitive to see blue.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.
  • Do your share to make your school and community better 
  • Cooperate 
  • Get involved in community affairs 
  • Stay informed; vote 
  • Be a good neighbor 
  • Obey laws and rules 
  • Respect authority 
  • Protect the environment 
  • Volunteer
According to Theodore Roosevelt, adventurer, politician and Nobel Prize-winning 26th U.S. president , "Americanism is a question of principles, of idealism, of character: it is not a matter of birthplace or creed or line of descent."

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!"
