Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 95 of school on this Monday, January 25, 2016. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies, with high of about 70 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mrs. Mallinger's class to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we'll be joined by Mrs. Eagleton's class.


Today is...
Macintosh Computer Day

On this Day in History
 On January 25, 1924, the first Winter Olympics take off in style in the French Alps. Spectators were thrilled by the ski jump and bobsled as well as 12 other events involving a total of six sports.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
Healthy nails grow about 2 cm each year. Fingernails grow four times as fast as toenails.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.
  • 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 Wes Fessler, American writer, "Fairness is mans ability rise above his prejudices."

4th grade will finish up today. This week is 5th grade week in the library.

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!"
