Today is day 57 of school on this Monday, November 10, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies today with a high of about 74 degrees.
This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. McDowell's classes to lead us in the pledge.
Next week we will be joined by Mr. Horstman's classes.
Sesame Street Day
On this Day in History:
On this day in 1969, "Sesame Street," a pioneering TV show that would teach generations of young children the alphabet and how to count, makes its broadcast debut. "Sesame Street," with its memorable theme song ("Can you tell me how to get/How to get to Sesame Street"), went on to become the most widely viewed children's program in the world. It has aired in more than 120 countries.
Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Fish are the only vertebrates that outnumber birds.
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.
Life is full of choices. Being responsible means being in charge of our choices and, thus, our lives. It means being accountable for what we do and who we are. It also means recognizing that our actions matter and we are morally on the hook for the consequences.
According to a Chinese proverb, "It is better to light a candle than to curse the darkness."
This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
