Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 113 of school on this Monday, February 22, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, with high of about 83 degrees.


This week we are joined by some college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Sylliaasen's class.
Next week we'll be joined by Ms. Nelson's class.


Today is...
  • World Thinking Day

  • Yawn are contagious for chimpanzees, just as they are for humans.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. When you think about trustworthiness, think "true blue".

When others trust us, they give us greater leeway because they feel we don’t need monitoring to assure that we’ll meet our obligations. They believe in us and hold us in higher esteem. That’s satisfying. At the same time, we must constantly live up to the expectations of others and refrain from even small lies or self-serving behavior that can quickly destroy our relationships.

According to François duc de la Rochefoucauld, French epigrammatist, "Most of our faults are more pardonable than the means we use to conceal them."

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.

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