Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Monday, August 26, 2013. The forecast calls for 50% chance of rain with a high of around 86 degrees.

This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mr. Plunkett's Class.



It's 6 Pillars of Character Week!

Today is...

National Dog Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1939, the first televised Major League baseball game is broadcast on station W2XBS, the station that was to become WNBC-TV. Announcer Red Barber called the game between the Cincinnati Reds and the Brooklyn Dodgers at Ebbets Field in Brooklyn, New York.

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 fellow’s character by his way of eating jelly beans."

It's Friendship Week in the Cafeteria!

We want to share how important friendship is and to promote making new friends. So Ask to the Nutrition Staff about Friendship week. They are Friendly!
We also have signs posted in the serving area to promote the idea of friendship. Monday at lunch time we have friendship bracelets to hand out & we are going to be serving some friendship fruit salad.

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!”
