Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 61 of school on this Monday, November 17, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies today with a high of about 79 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mr. Horstman's classes to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Boyne classes.


Today is...
Homemade Bread Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1777, Congress submits the Articles of Confederation to the states for ratification.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The Earth Spins so fast that someone standing at the Equator is traveling at about 1,000 miles an hour.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.

  • Play by the rules 
  • Take turns and share 
  • Be open-minded; listen to others 
  • Don't take advantage of others 
  • Don't blame others carelessly 
  • Treat all people fairly

According to a Native American proverb, "Examine what is said, not the person who speaks."

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!”
