Good morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Monday, August 27, 2012. Today's weather calls for partly cloudy this morning becoming sunny with a high of 90 degrees.


This morning, we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mrs. Andrew's 2nd grade class to lead us with the pledge. 


On this Day in History:

In 1908, future President Lyndon Baines Johnson is born on a farm near Stonewall, Texas. The brash, outspoken Johnson grew up in an impoverished rural area and worked his way through a teachers' training college before entering politics.

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.

Rock Springs School is a Character Counts School:

Do you remember the Six Pillars of Character from last week? They are 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 Theodore Roosevelt, American adventurer and our 26th president, "Character, in the long run, is the decisive factor in the life of an individual and of nations alike."

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