Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Wednesday, February 19, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 70 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. McDowell's class.

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


Today is...
Chocolate Mint Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1847, the first rescuers reach surviving members of the Donner Party, a group of California-bound emigrants stranded by snow in the Sierra Nevada Mountains.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Rain drops can fall at speeds of about 22 miles an hour.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
It's Pillars of Character Week at RSU! 
Are you a TRRFCC (terrific) student? If you are then you are demonstrating the Six Pillars of Character; Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship. 
This week is Pillars of Character Colors Week. Each day, pick a Pillar and wear the color that represents that Pillar. If anyone asks, be prepared to tell them about you Pillar.

According to Thomas Carlyle, Scottish historian and author, "Conviction is worthless unless it is converted into conduct."

Student Council
Please stop in the office today after recess.

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!”
