Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Monday, December 17, 2012. The forecast calls for cloudy skies with a chance of rain and a high of around 60 degrees.


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


Next week we will be joined by Mr. Plunkett's third grade for the pledge.

December 17th is officially, "National Underdog Day".

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1903, Near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, Orville and Wilbur Wright make the first successful flight in history of a self-propelled, heavier-than-air aircraft. Orville piloted the gasoline-powered, propeller-driven biplane, which stayed aloft for 12 seconds and covered 120 feet on its inaugural flight.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The first airplane journey across the United States took 49 days.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Caring, the fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red:
This is the perfect week to think about the Pillar of Caring with the Holidays upon us. Be kind • Be compassionate and show you care • Express gratitude • Forgive others • Help people in need
According to a Aesop, Greek fabulist, “No act of kindness, no matter how small, is ever wasted.”

The Can-Do Food drive is underway. We have passed the half way mark! We currently have 581 cans and need 419 more to reach our goal of 1,000. Keep bringing in those cans of food and other non-perishable items to help those in need!

Don't forget about the PTA Candy Gram. Candy Gram sales are on after school.

Due to rain, Running Club will be cancelled tomorrow

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