Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 137 of school on this Monday, April 13, 2015. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today, with high of about 87 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from _ to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
Scrabble Day

On this Day in History:
On April 13, 1970, the now famous words, "Houston, we've had a problem here," were said when disaster strikes 200,000 miles from Earth. Oxygen tank No. 2 blows up on Apollo 13, the third manned lunar landing mission. Astronauts James A. Lovell, John L. Swigert, and Fred W. Haise had left Earth two days before for the Fra Mauro highlands of the moon but were forced to turn their attention to simply making it home alive. On April 17, with the world anxiously watching, tragedy turned to triumph as the Apollo 13 astronauts touched down safely in the Pacific Ocean.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The world's termites outweigh the world's humans 10 to 1.

Leadership Meeting - Rescheduled to 4/20

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!”
