Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 33 of school on this Friday, October 3, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 100 degrees.


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


Today is...
German Unity Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1895, The Red Badge of Courage, by Stephen Crane, is published in book form. The story of a young man's experience of battle was the first American novel to portray the Civil War from the ordinary soldier's point of view. The tale originally appeared as a serial published by a newspaper syndicate.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A group of seagulls is called a squabble.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.

  • Be kind 
  • Be compassionate and show you care 
  • Express gratitude 
  • Forgive others 
  • Help people in need

According to a Russian proverb, "A kind word is like a spring day."

MAP Testing:
MAP Testing continues today with Mrs. Zacharias and Mrs. Riley in the computer lab and Mrs. Goulart will be 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.
RSU Friday:
Tomorrow is RSU Friday. be sure to show your school spirit tomorrow by wearing you Rock Springs colors. We'll see everyone in the Character Counts Quad for morning assembly.

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
