Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 118 of school on this Monday, February 29, 2016. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies, with high of about 83 degrees.


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

Next week we'll be joined by Mrs. Baier's class.


Today is...
Leap Year Day

On this Day in History
On February 29, 1972, Hank Aaron signs a three-year deal with the Atlanta Braves that pays him $200,000 per year, making him the highest-paid player in Major League Baseball at the time. Two years later, Aaron became baseball’s home run king when he broke Babe Ruth’s long-standing record.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think "The Golden Rule"
  • Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule 
  • Be tolerant and accepting of differences 
  • Use good manners, not bad language 
  • Be considerate of the feelings of others 
  • Don't threaten, hit or hurt anyone 
  • Deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements
According to Ralph C. Smedley, American founder of Toastmasters International, "Whatever your grade or position, if you know how and when to speak, and when to remain silent, your chances of real success are proportionately increased."

5th Grade Week

Math Field Day
Congratulations to our Math Field Day Team for representing Rock Springs School so well on Saturday.

Safety First!
  • The playground swings are off limits and will remain off limits until further notice.
  • 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!"
