Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 85 of school on this Monday, January 12, 2015. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of about 68 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Ms. Berns' class to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Riley's class.


Today is...
Fruitcake Toss Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1932, Ophelia Wyatt Caraway, a Democrat from Arkansas, becomes the first woman to be elected to the U.S. Senate.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
When glass breaks, the cracks move at speeds of more than 3,000mph.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think "The Golden Rule".
  • Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule 
  • Be tolerant and accepting of differences 
  • Use good manners, not bad language 
  • Be considerate of the feelings of others 
  • Don't threaten, hit or hurt anyone 
  • Deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements
According to Helen Keller, American social activist, public speaker and author, "Instead of comparing our lot with that of those who are more fortunate than we are, we should compare it with the lot of the great majority of our fellow men. It then appears that we are among the privileged."

MAP Testing
Begins today with Mrs. Boyne's class! Be sure to remember to take your time, read the questions thoroughly, and do your best.

4th grade week

Talent Show
Auditions are this Friday after school.  You must have your application turned in by Wednesday to audition. Each person in your group must have an application turned in as well. Have fun with your performance and practice daily!!

Teacher Update:
  • Mrs. Aguilar is not on campus today.
  • Leadership Team meeting today at 2:30 in the Library.
  • Writing Celebration on Wednesday.
  • Open Thursday

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!”
