Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 38 of school on this Monday, October 17, 2016. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today with high of about 77 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Kindergarten to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Baier's class.


Today is...
Wear Something Gaudy Day

On this Day in History
The deadliest earthquake to hit the San Francisco area since 1906 strikes at 5:04 p.m. and lasts for 15 seconds. The quake measured 7.1 on the Richter scale, and its aftermath was witnessed on live television by millions of people watching the third game of the World Series of baseball between the San Francisco Giants and the Oakland Athletics, held at Candlestick Park in San Francisco.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
A salmon’s sense of smell is thousands of times better than a dog’s.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
This week is Character Counts! Week nation-wide.

Show respect and responsibility for our school by setting aside time to beautify our campus and facilities, pick up trash, pledge not to vandalize property, or plant trees and flowers.

According to Aldo Leopold, American ecologist, forester, and environmentalist, "We abuse land because we regard it as a commodity belonging to us. When we see land as a community to which we belong, we may begin to use it with love and respect."

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!"
