Good Morning Rock Springs School!


Today is Monday, February 3, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies and chance storms with a high of about 59 degrees.

Pledge: 


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

Announcements:


Today is...
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:
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.

• Be kind 
• Be compassionate and show you care 
• Express gratitude 
• Forgive others 
• Help people in need

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."

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!”
