Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 40 of school on this Tuesday, October 14, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 78 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. Goulart's class to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Ms. J. Isherwood's class.


Happy Birthday:
Mrs. Goulart

Today is...
National Dessert Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1947, U.S. Air Force Captain Chuck Yeager becomes the first person to fly faster than the speed of sound.

Also on this day in 1890, future President Dwight D. Eisenhower is born near Abilene, Texas.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Humans share 60% of DNA with a banana.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

It's Pillars of Character Week at RSU!

This week's challenge is to select a Pillar that you want to improve yourself with and write up a contract. Have you selected that Pillar yet?

Today, make it a goal to do at least two things toward that goal.

According to an unknown author, "Watch your thoughts, for they become words. Watch your words, for they become actions. Watch your actions, for they become habits. Watch your habits, for they become character. Watch your character, for it becomes your destiny."

MAP Testing:
MAP Testing continues today with Mrs. Zacharias and Mrs. Riley.

Parent Conferences:
It's Parent Conference week. Students, there will not be any school this Thursday and Friday as your teachers will be meeting with your parents.

If you have any overdue books, please get them turned back in to the library. We have many other student that would like to enjoy them.

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!”
