Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 23 of school on this Friday, September 19, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 83 degrees.


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


Today is...
Ahoy! 'Tis Talk Like A Pirate Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1957, the United States detonates a 1.7 kiloton nuclear weapon in an underground tunnel at the Nevada Test Site (NTS), a 1,375 square mile research center located 65 miles north of Las Vegas. The test, known as Rainier, was the first fully contained underground detonation and produced no radioactive fallout. A modified W-25 warhead weighing 218 pounds and measuring 25.7 inches in diameter and 17.4 inches in length was used for the test. Rainier was part of a series of 29 nuclear weapons and nuclear weapons safety tests known as Operation Plumbbob that were conducted at the NTS between May 28, 1957, and October 7, 1957.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.
  • Do what you are supposed to do 
  • Plan ahead

According to Woodrow Wilson, 28th U.S. president, "Provision for others is the fundamental responsibility of human life."

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.
