Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 112 of school on this Monday, February 23, 2015. The forecast calls for cloudy skies and rain today, with a high of about 62 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Ms. Reynoso's classes to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Kindergarten class.


Today is...
Curling is Cool Day

On this Day in History:
During the Battle for Iwo Jima, U.S. Marines from the 3rd Platoon, E Company, 2nd Battalion, 28th Regiment of the 5th Division take the crest of Mount Suribachi, the island's highest peak and most strategic position, and raise the U.S. flag.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
An Octopus has three hearts.

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".
  • Be honest 
  • Don't deceive, cheat, or steal 
  • Be reliable - do what you say you'll do 
  • Have the courage to do the right thing 
  • Build a good reputation 
  • Be loyal - stand by your family, friends, and country
According to François duc de la Rochefoucauld, French epigrammatist, "Most of our faults are more pardonable than the means we use to conceal them."

Running Club
Cancelled this week

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!”
