Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 28 of school on this Monday, October 3, 2016. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today with high of about 74 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Sylliaasen's 2nd grade to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Ms. Reynoso's first grade.


Today is...
German Unity Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1895, The Red Badge of Courage, by Stephen Crane, is published in book form. The story of a young man's experience of battle was the first American novel to portray the Civil War from the ordinary soldier's point of view. The tale originally appeared as a serial published by a newspaper syndicate.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
A woodpecker can peck with a force as high as 1,200 g's with each impact - equivalent to a human striking head against a wall at a speed of 25km (16mi) an hour each time.

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.
  • Do what you are supposed to do 
  • Plan ahead 
  • Persevere: keep on trying! 
  • Always do your best 
  • Use self-control 
  • Be self-disciplined 
  • Think before you act — consider the consequences 
  • Be accountable for your words, actions, and attitudes
According to John D. Rockefeller, Jr., entrepreneur, “Every right implies a responsibility, every opportunity an obligation, every possession a duty.”

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!"
