Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 132 of school on this Monday, March 23, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny cloudy skies today, with high of about 79 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from _ to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
Corn Dog Day

On this Day in History:
On this day on 1775, during a speech before the second Virginia Convention, Patrick Henry responds to the increasingly oppressive British rule over the American colonies by declaring, "I know not what course others may take, but as for me, give me liberty or give me death!" Following the signing of the American Declaration of Independence on July 4, 1776, Patrick Henry was appointed governor of Virginia by the Continental Congress.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Skunks have stripped skin under their fur.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.
  • Be kind 
  • Be compassionate and show you care 
  • Express gratitude 
  • Forgive others 
  • Help people in need

According to William Arthur Ward, American writer, "Forgiveness is a funny thing. It warms the heart and cools the sting."

5th grade week

CAASPP Testing
CAASPP Testing today is Mr. Horstman, Ms. Hernandez, Ms. J. Isherwood, Mr. Plunkett, and Ms. S. Isherwood. Also testing is Mrs. Eagleton and Mrs. Baiers in the mini-labs. Be sure to rest, relax, and be ready for the test! 

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!”
