Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 38 of school on this Friday, October 10, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 84 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mr. Hernandez's class to lead us in the pledge.
Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Goulart's class.


Today is...
World Porridge Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1845, The United States Naval Academy opens in Annapolis, Maryland, with 50 midshipmen students and seven professors.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A crocodile's tongue is attached to the roof of its mouth.

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."

MAP Testing:
MAP Testing continues today with Mrs. Zacharias, Mrs. Riley and Mrs. McDowell testing in the computer lab, and Mrs. Andrews testing with the CoW.

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!”
