Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 127 of school on this Monday, March 16, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies today, with high of about 88 degrees.



Today is...
National Quilting Day

On this Day in History:
Future President James Madison is born on this day in 1751 in Port Conway, Virginia. Madison, one of the key drafters of the U.S. Constitution and the Bill of Rights, became America's fourth president in 1809. He is considered the Father of the Constitution, though he humbly referred to its development as the work of many heads and many hands.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
It takes 713 gallons of water to make one cotton T-shirt.

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 a French proverb, "Gratitude is the least of virtues, but ingratitude the worst of vices."

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!”
