On this Day in History
On this day in 1893, the largest land run in history begins with more than 100,000 people pouring into the Cherokee Strip of Oklahoma to claim valuable land that had once belonged to Native Americans. With a single shot from a pistol the mad dash began, and land-hungry pioneers on horseback and in carriages raced forward to stake their claims to the best acres.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
Are you a TRRFCC (terrific) student? Remember that TRRFCC students demonstrate Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. RSU student uphold the Six Pillars of Character everyday.
According to Abraham Lincoln, 16th U.S. president, “Character is like a tree and reputation like its shadow. The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing.”
Today is Constitution Day. On this day we celebrate the freedoms that the Constitution of
the United States of America provides to all American citizens.
The Constitution is the document that created the government of the United States. It was signed on September 17, 1787, making it 229 years old. Its first three words - "We The People" - affirm that the government of the United States exists to serve its citizens.
The first part of the Constitution is called the Preamble. There are seven Articles and 27 Amendments. The first ten Amendments are called the Bill of Rights. The Bill of Rights explains the basic rights of all American citizens.
As American Citizens we are proud that The Constitution has remained in force for so many years. The authors saw to it that we have a balance of governmental powers. They wanted to be sure that the rights of all people, both the majority as well as the minority are considered and protected. Equality is important to us as American Citizens. We are very fortunate to live in a country that provides its citizens so many rights.
This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!"
