Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 97 of school on this Monday, February 6, 2017. The forecast calls for a rain with high of about 63 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Ms. Eagleton's class to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mr. Hernandez's class.


Today is...
Lame Duck Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1911, Former President, Ronald Reagan was born. As the 40th president of the United States, the former movie star was called the œGreat Communicator for his ability to get through to ordinary Americans and give them hope and optimism for their own future and that of their country.
Also on the day in 1788, Massachusetts becomes our 6th state of the United States.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today

Safety First!
  • 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!"
