Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 123 of school on this Monday, March 7, 2016. The forecast calls for rain, with high of about 61 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mrs. Baier's class to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we'll be joined by Ms. S. Isherwood's class.


Today is...
World Book Day

On this Day in History
Mr. Watson, come here, I need you. On this day in 1876, 29-year-old Alexander Graham Bell receives a patent for his revolutionary new invention--the telephone. "Mr. Watson, come here, I need you" were the first words to ever be spoken into a telephone.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
Rain drops can fall at speeds of about 22 miles an hour.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about  responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.

• Do what you are supposed to do 
• Plan ahead 
• Persevere: keep on trying! 
• Always do your best 
• Use self-control 
• Be self-disciplined 
• Think before you act — consider the consequences 
• Be accountable for your words, actions, and attitudes

According to Aristotle, ancient Greek philosopher, "We become just by the practice of just actions, self-controlled by exercising self-control, and courageous by performing acts of courage."

Safety First!

  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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, you are to 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!"
