Today is Monday, March 17, 2014. The forecast calls for fair skies with a high of about 73 degrees.
This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. McWilliams' class.
Next week, Mrs. Baiers' and Mrs. Herrera's class will be leading us in the pledge.
St. Patrick's Day
On this Day in History:
On this day in 461 A.D., Saint Patrick, Christian missionary, bishop and apostle of Ireland, dies at Saul, Downpatrick, Ireland. Thus creating, St. Patrick's Day.
In New York City, the first parade honoring the Catholic feast day of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is held by Irish soldiers serving in the British army.
Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The Moon orbits the Earth every 27.3 days.
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.
According to a French proverb, "Gratitude is the least of virtues, but ingratitude the worst of vices."
Smarter Balanced Testing
The California Department of Education has postponed Smarter Balanced until next week.
This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
