Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 56 of school on this Friday, November 7, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies today with a high of about 90 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from our Kindergarten classes to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. McDowell's classes.


Happy Birthday
Mrs. Sylliaasen

Today is...
National Bittersweet Chocolate with Almonds Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1944, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt, also known as FDR, is elected to an unprecedented fourth term in office. FDR remains the only president to have served more than two terms.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Mosquitoes prefer to bite people with smelly feet.

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 Mark Twain (Samuel Clemens), American humorist, author and journalist, "Keep away from people who try to belittle your ambitions. Small people always do that, but the really great make you feel that you, too, can become great."


It's 5th grade week!

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!”
