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.
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.
Birds don’t sweat.
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.

• Persevere: keep on trying!

According to John D. Rockefeller, Jr., entrepreneur , "Every right implies a responsibility, every opportunity an obligation, every possession a duty."
This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
