Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 152 of school on this Monday, May 4, 2015. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today, with high of about 73 degrees.


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


Today is...
Intergalactic Star Wars Day (May the Fourth Be With You!)

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1776, Rhode Island, the colony founded by the most radical religious dissenters from the Puritans of Massachusetts Bay Colony, becomes the first North American colony to renounce its allegiance to King George III. Ironically, Rhode Island would be the last state to ratify the new American Constitution more than 14 years later on May 29, 1790.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The world’s population grows by about a billion people every 12 years.

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."

Split schedule this week (teachers see your email/Bucket) due to the book fair.
Overdue books need to be turned in! There are 255 overdue notices and that's too many to print. Let's get those books turned in.

MAP Testing
MAP testing today: Mrs. Mallinger, Mrs. McDowell, and Mrs. Martinez.

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!"
