Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Monday, December 9, 2013. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of about 59 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Ms. J. Isherwood's class.

Next week, Mrs. Dias's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Happy Birthday!
Ms. Mullany

Today is...
National Pastry Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1835, Inspired by the spirited leadership of Benjamin Rush Milam, the newly created Texan Army takes possession of the city of San Antonio, an important victory for the Republic of Texas in its war for independence from Mexico.

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.

• Do your share to make your school and community better 
• Cooperate 
• 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."

Can-Do Food Drive
It's that time of year again! It's time for the annual Rock Springs Can-Do Food Drive! The food drive will run from Dec. 9th - Dec. 19th. Bring only non-perishable foods to donate to those in need this season.

Fall Festival
This Thursday is our Winter Wonderland festival. Bring your family for fun and games from 5pm to 7pm Thursday evening.

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!”
