Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 33 of school on this Monday, October 10, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with high of about 87 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Ms. Reynoso's first grade to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Kindergarten.


Today is...
World Porridge Day

On this Day in History

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
It takes approximately 12 hours for food to entirely digest.

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 Dennis Wholey, 20th/21st-century self-help author and journalist, "Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like expecting the bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian."

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!"
