Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 35 of school on this Monday, October 5, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies and a chance of rain, with high of about 74 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. McDowell's class to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
World Teachers Day

On this Day in History:

Safety First!
  • 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!
