Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Monday, September 16, 2013. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with a high of around 91 degrees.

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


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


Today is...

Mayflower Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1893, the largest land run in history begins with more than 100,000 people pouring into the Cherokee Strip of Oklahoma to claim valuable land that had once belonged to Native Americans. With a single shot from a pistol the mad dash began, and land-hungry pioneers on horseback and in carriages raced forward to stake their claims to the best acres.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Birds don’t sweat.

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 
• Set a good example for others

According to John D. Rockefeller, Jr., entrepreneur , "Every right implies a responsibility, every opportunity an obligation, every possession a duty."

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!”
