Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Monday, October 7, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of about 83 degrees.

This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. McWilliam's Class.


Next week, Mr. Hernandez's class will be leading up in the pledge.


Happy Birthday

RSU wishes Mrs. Weidemann and Mr. Plunkett a Happy Birthday!

Today is...

You Matter To Me Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1816, a steamboat with a design that will soon prove ideal for western rivers arrives at the docks in New Orleans. The Washington was the work of a shipbuilder named Henry M. Shreve and had all the features that would soon come to characterize the classic Mississippi riverboat: a two-story deck, a stern-mounted paddle wheel powered by a high-pressure steam engine, a shallow, flat-bottomed hull, and a pilothouse framed by two tall chimneys

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Humans share 60% of DNA with a banana.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

• Do your share to make your school and community better 
• Cooperate 
• Get involved in community affairs 
• Stay informed; vote 
• Be a good neighbor 
• Obey laws and rules 
• Respect authority 
• Protect the environment 
• Volunteer

According to Mohandas Gandhi, Indian nonviolent civil rights leader, "The best way to find yourself is to lose yourself in the service of others."

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!”
