Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Friday, September 6, 2013. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of around 95 degrees.

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


Next week we will be joined by Mrs. McDowell's class.


Today is...

National Fresh Breath (Halitosis) Day!

On this Day in History:

In 1844, the western explorer John C. Fremont arrives at the shores of the Great Salt Lake, one of the many areas he will map for the lasting benefit of a westward-moving nation.

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 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."

MAP Testing

MAP Testing begins this week. Students, take your time and do your best. Show your new teacher how smart you are and do your best.
Teachers: check your email later today for some updated information about MAP testing and be sure to stay current on any changes to the MAP calendar. 

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.


It's going to be hot and humid today. Stay in the shade, drink plenty of water and don't over do it.

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
