Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Monday, March 24, 2014. The forecast calls for fair skies with a high of about 70 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Baiers' and Mrs. Herrera's classes.

Next week, Mrs. Goulart's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Happy Birthday!
Mrs. Werner (Saturday)

Today is...
National Chocolate Covered Raisins Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1765, Parliament passes the Quartering Act, outlining the locations and conditions in which British soldiers are to find room and board in the American colonies.
Also on this day in 1834, The great western explorer and conservationist John Wesley Powell is born near Palmyra, New York.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Blondes have more hair on their heads than Brunettes.

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."

Smarter Balanced Testing
Smarter Balanced Testing begins this week.

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!”
