On this Day in History
On this day in 1940, near Montignac, France, a collection of prehistoric cave paintings are discovered by four teenagers who stumbled upon the ancient artwork after following their dog down a narrow entrance into a cavern. The 15,000- to 17,000-year-old paintings, consisting mostly of animal representations, are among the finest examples of art from the Upper Paleolithic period.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
Hummingbirds are the only animals able to fly backwards.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
Do you remember the Six Pillars of Character? They are TRRFCC (terrific); Trustworthiness, Respect, Responsibility, Fairness, Caring, and Citizenship.

This week I challenge you to look up each of these words and define them. Also, think about how they can affect your life.

According to Ronald Reagan, 40th U.S. president, “You can tell a lot about a fellows character by his way of eating jelly beans.”

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!"
