Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, October 4, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of about 88 degrees.

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


Next week, Mrs. McWilliams's class will be leading up in the pledge.


Today is...

Ten-Four Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1927, sculpting begins on the face of Mount Rushmore in the Black Hills National Forest of South Dakota. It would take another 12 years for the impressive granite images of four of America's most revered and beloved presidents—George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Abraham Lincoln and Theodore Roosevelt--to be completed.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Fleas can jump 130 times higher than their own height. In human terms, that's a 6ft tall person jumping 780 ft in the air!

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."

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.

PTA Updates:
Today is the day to turn in all orders and money. Good work to everyone, our PTA is off to a terrific start. Also, don't forget to remind your parents to join the PTA.

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