Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 104 of school on this Monday, February 7, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of about 76 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. Baier's classes to lead us in the pledge.

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


Today is...
National Stop Bullying Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1942, Congress pushes ahead standard time for the United States by one hour in each time zone, imposing daylight saving time--called at the time "war time."

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Every zebra's stripe pattern is different.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

  • Cooperate 
  • Get involved in community affairs 
  • Stay informed; vote 
  • Be a good neighbor 
  • Obey laws and rules 
  • Respect authority 
  • Protect the environment 
  • Volunteer
According to Thomas Jefferson, American Founding Father and third president, "I believe... that every human mind feels pleasure in doing good to another."

MAP Testing
Testing today is Mrs. Andrews, Ms. S. Isherwood and Mrs. Eagleton. Be sure to remember to take your time, read the questions thoroughly, and do your best.

4th grade week

Teacher Update:
  • Remember to post on My Big Campus about the article from the staff meeting
  • Wednesday 2/11 = Site Council meeting
  • Thursday 2/12 = Grade-Level Collaboration

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!”
