Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, September 13, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of around 88 degrees.

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


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


Today is...

International Chocolate Day, and Roald Dahl Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1814, Francis Scott Key writes a poem which is later set to music and in 1931 becomes America's national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner."

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The largest eggs in the world are laid by a shark.

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."

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!”
