Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 65 of school on this Monday, December 5, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with high of about 68 degrees.

This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Kindergarten to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Ms. May's.


Today is...
National Sacher Torte Day (Sacher Torte is a dense, bittersweet chocolate spongecake covered with a thin layer of chocolate traditionally made in Germany.)

On this Day in History
On this day in 1839, Union General George Armstrong Custer is born in Harrison County, Ohio. Although he is best known for his demise at the hands of the Lakota and Cheyenne Indians at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, Montana, in 1876, Custer built a reputation as a dashing and effective cavalry leader during the Civil War.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
A cat has about 20 muscles in each ear.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about  responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.

• Do what you are supposed to do 
• Plan ahead 
• Persevere: keep on trying! 
• Always do your best 
• Use self-control 
• Be self-disciplined 
• Think before you act — consider the consequences 
• Be accountable for your words, actions, and attitudes

According to a Chinese proverb, "It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness."

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • 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.
Finally, just a shout out to our Girls on the Run team.  It was an exciting day on Sunday at Liberty station.  Also, a big thank you to Ms. Langston, Ms. Roberts, Mr. Plunkett, Mrs. Zinn, Ms. Hardenburg and Mrs. Stamm for supporting our team.  

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