Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 72 of school on this Monday, December 7, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, with high of about 83 degrees.


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


Today is...
National Pearl Harbor Remembrance Day

On this Day in History:
This day in history is known as "A date which will live in infamy". On this day, in an early-morning sneak attack, Japanese warplanes bomb the U.S. naval base at Oahu Island's Pearl Harbor and the United States enters World War II in 1941.

Also on this day in 1787, Delaware becomes the first state of the United States.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
An ostrich's eye is bigger than its brain.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

  • Get involved in community affairs 
  • Stay informed; vote 
  • Be a good neighbor 
  • Obey laws and rules 
  • Respect authority 
  • Protect the environment 
  • Volunteer
According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist, public philosopher and poet, "Life is not so short but that there is always time enough for courtesy."

We have 123 overdue library books. Please get those books turned in.

Safety First!
  • Kadama's are not allowed at school.
  • 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!"
