Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 22 of school on this Friday, September 23, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with high of about 79 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Ms. Roberts' 4th grade to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Riley's 3rd grade.


Today is...
Innergize Day - A "do anything you want to do for yourself" day. A day of relaxation

On this Day in History
On this day in 1806, amid much public excitement, American explorers Meriwether Lewis and William Clark return to St. Louis, Missouri, from the first recorded overland journey from the Mississippi River to the Pacific coast and back. The Lewis and Clark Expedition had set off more than two years before to explore the territory of the Louisiana Purchase.

In 1846,  German astronomer Johann Gottfried Galle discovers the planet Neptune at the Berlin Observatory.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. When you think about trustworthiness, think “true blue”.
  • Be honest 
  • Don’t deceive, cheat, or steal 
  • Be reliable — do what you say you’ll do 
  • Have the courage to do the right thing 
  • Build a good reputation 
  • Be loyal — stand by your family, friends, and country
According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist, public philosopher and poet, “Frankness invites frankness.”

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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, you are to 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!"
