Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 18 of school on this Friday, September 12, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 92 degrees.


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


Today is...
Video Games Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1940, near Montignac, France, a collection of prehistoric cave paintings are discovered by four teenagers who stumbled upon the ancient artwork after following their dog down a narrow entrance into a cavern. The 15,000- to 17,000-year-old paintings, consisting mostly of animal representations, are among the finest examples of art from the Upper Paleolithic period.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The nerves in our body are most concentrated in our fingertips.

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 Jesse Jackson, American political activist and preacher, “Never look down on anybody unless you're helping him up.”

MAP Testing:

There is not any MAP testing today.


Don't forget Collegial Conversations on Monday.

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!”
