Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 6 of school on this Monday, August 24, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies, with high of about 91 degrees.


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


Today is...
National Waffle Day

On this Day in History:
After centuries of dormancy, Mount Vesuvius erupts in southern Italy, devastating the prosperous Roman cities of Pompeii and Herculaneum. The cities, buried under a thick layer of volcanic material and mud, were never rebuilt and largely forgotten in the course of history. In the 18th century, Pompeii and Herculaneum were rediscovered and excavated, providing an unprecedented archaeological record of the everyday life of an ancient civilization.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Ants cannot chew their food, they move their jaws sideways, like scissors, to extract the juices from the food.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
"Do you remember the Six Pillars of Character from last week? They are TRRFCC (terrific); Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship.

This week I challenge you to look up each of these words and define them. Also, think about how they can affect your life.

According to Ronald Reagan, 40th U.S. president, “You can tell a lot about a fellows character by his way of eating jelly beans.”

Safety First!
  • 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!
