Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, October 11, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly skies with a high of about 73 degrees.

This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. McWilliam's Class.


Next week, Mr. Hernandez's class will be leading up in the pledge.


Today is...

International Day of The Girl!

On this Day in History:

On this day in in 1968, Apollo 7, the first manned Apollo mission, is launched and conducted an 11-day orbit of Earth, during which the crew transmitted the first live television broadcasts from orbit. Also on this day in 1975, Saturday Night Live made its debut on NBC. I'm Chevy Chase, and you're not.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The human eye blinks an average of 4,200,000 times each year.

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!

  • 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!”
