Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 142 of school on this Monday, April 20, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today, with high of about 74 degrees.


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


Today is...
Spring Astronomy Day

On this Day in History:
Colonel Robert E. Lee resigns from the United States army two days after he was offered command of the Union army and three days after his native state, Virginia, seceded from the Union. Lee went on to become General of the Confederate Army.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Some sea stars break off their own arms when frightened.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
It's Pillars of Character Week at RSU! 

Are you a TRRFCC (terrific) student? If you are then you are demonstrating the Six Pillars of Character.
Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. 

Character is all around us. Your challenge for the week is to find examples of good character outside of our school community and share them with your class.

According to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, German poet, novelist, playwright, scientist and philosopher, "You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him."

5th grade week

CAASPP Testing
Testing today is Mrs. Mallinger, Mr. Plunkett, Ms. Isherwood, and Ms. Roberts. Be sure to rest, relax, and be ready for the test! 

Leadership Meeting today @ 2:30 in the library.

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!”
