Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Monday, April 29, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of around 73 degrees.


This morning, we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mr. Horstman's class to lead us with the pledge. 


Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Mallinger's class for the pledge.

Today is...

Officially Zipper Day!

On this Day in History:

On April 29, 2004, the National World War II Memorial opens in Washington, D.C., to thousands of visitors, providing overdue recognition for the 16 million U.S. men and women who served in the war.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Mars is red because its soil is very rusty (iron oxide.)

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow. Think "The Golden Rule".
  • Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule
  • Be tolerant and accepting of differences
  • Use good manners, not bad language
  • Be considerate of the feelings of others
  • Don’t threaten, hit or hurt anyone
  • Deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements
According to W.H. Auden, English poet,  “Civilizations should be measured by the degree of diversity attained and the degree of unity retained.”

If you haven't yet seen it, RSU has a new addition to the garden area. Located between the 20's and 30's building, is a new lawn and planting area donated by the great people of the North Coast Church. Over the weekend, a large group of volunteers came to our school to create this wonderful new learning area. We are going to have to be patient, as we are not able to walk on this grass for the next few weeks while we wait for the roots to take hold. So please, keep off the grass.

CST testing is all this week. We want to remind all students do their best. Also, be sure to show respect for your fellow students by being extra quiet around campus during test times. We want everyone to be able to do their best.

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