Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 153 of school on this Monday, May 2, 2016. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with high of about 72 degrees.


This morning we have Kindergarten to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
Roberts Rule of Order Day

On this Day in History
Although accounts of an aquatic beast living in Scotland's Loch Ness date back 1,500 years, the modern legend of the Loch Ness Monster is born on this date when a sighting makes local news on May 2, 1933.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
Male woodchucks are called He-Chucks and females are called She-Chucks.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think "The Golden Rule".
  • Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule 
  • Be tolerant and accepting of differences 
  • Use good manners, not bad language 
  • Be considerate of the feelings of others 
  • Don't threaten, hit or hurt anyone 
  • Deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements
According to Frankie Byrne, Irish radio broadcaster, "Respect is love in plain clothes."

Book Fair is on for the next two weeks.

CAASPP Testing
CAASPP testing continues today. Testing today are Mr. Horstman, Mr. Hernandez, Mrs. Riley, and Ms. S. Isherwood.

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!"
