Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 94 of school on this Monday, January 26, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies becoming cloudy with a chance of showers and a high of about 72 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by the Kindergarten classes.


Today is...
National Peanut Brittle Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1837, Michigan was admitted into the Union as the 26th state. The name Michigan is the French form of the Ojibwa word mishigamaa, meaning "large water" or "large lake".

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
With more than 80,000 arms, the Basket Starfish has the greatest number of arms.

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."

MAP Testing
Classes testing today are Mrs. Dias and Mrs. Ocampo. Be sure to remember to take your time, read the questions thoroughly, and do your best.

4th grade week

Teacher Update:
  • Tuesday 1/27 = Tech Tuesday
  • Wednesday 1/28 = School Site Council Meeting
  • Thursday 1/29 = 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!”
