Good morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Monday, October 8, 2012. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and a high of 77 degrees.


This morning, we have a group of college bound roadrunners from _________________ class to lead us with the pledge. 


On this Day in History:

The first transcontinental air race in the United States begins, with 63 planes competing in the round-trip aerial derby between California and New York. As 15 planes departed the Presidio in San Francisco, California, 48 planes left Roosevelt Field on Long Island, New York.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

A crocodile's tongue is attached to the roof of its mouth.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The word of the week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green:
Life is full of choices. Being responsible means being in charge of our choices and, thus, our lives. It means being accountable for what we do and who we are. It also means recognizing that our actions matter and we are morally on the hook for the consequences. 
According to Robert Duncan, American poet, "Responsibility is to keep the ability to respond."

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
