Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Monday, February 4, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of around 69 degrees.


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


Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Laquindanum's class for the pledge.

February 4th is officially, "National Create A Vacuum Day."

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1789, George Washington, the commander of the Continental Army during the Revolutionary War, is unanimously elected the first president of the United States by all 69 presidential electors who cast their votes.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The nerves in our body are most concentrated in our fingertips.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

Today marks the begininning of the Season of Non-Violence. All of the schools and students in our district are currently recognizing the Season for Nonviolence. The Season for Nonviolence celebrates the lives of Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. and Mahatma Gandhi and their goal to make the world a more peaceful place.

The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, the fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color Orange:
Play by the rules • Take turns and share • Be open-minded; listen to others • Don’t take advantage of others • Don’t blame others carelessly • Treat all people fairly 
According to Harry Sheehy, athletic director, "It is your response to winning and losing that makes you a winner or a loser."

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