Today is Monday, February 3, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies and chance storms with a high of about 59 degrees.
This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Andrew's class.
Next week, Mrs. Sylliaasen's class will be leading us in the pledge.
The Day The Music Died
On this Day in History:
On February 3, 1966, the Soviet Union accomplishes the first controlled landing on the moon, when the unmanned spacecraft Lunik 9 touches down on the Ocean of Storms. After its soft landing, the circular capsule opened like a flower, deploying its antennas, and began transmitting photographs and television images back to Earth.
Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Dolphins only "sleep" half awake - keeping one eye open while consciously breathing and floating on surface.
Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

According to John Stuart Mill, 19th-century English philosopher and economist, "Those only are happy who have their minds fixed on some object other than their own happiness; on the happiness of others, on the improvement of mankind, even on some art or pursuit, followed not as a means, but as itself an ideal end. Aiming thus at something else, they find happiness by the way."
This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
