Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 18 of school on this Monday, September 19, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies with high of about 88 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Ms. Roberts' 4th grade to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Riley's 3rd grade.


Today is...
Talk Like A Pirate Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1957, the United States detonates a 1.7 kiloton nuclear weapon in an underground tunnel at the Nevada Test Site (NTS), a 1,375 square mile research center located 65 miles north of Las Vegas. The test, known as Rainier, was the first fully contained underground detonation and produced no radioactive fallout. A modified W-25 warhead weighing 218 pounds and measuring 25.7 inches in diameter and 17.4 inches in length was used for the test. Rainier was part of a series of 29 nuclear weapons and nuclear weapons safety tests known as Operation Plumbbob that were conducted at the NTS between May 28, 1957, and October 7, 1957.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. When you think about trustworthiness, think “true blue”.
  • Be honest 
  • Don’t deceive, cheat, or steal 
  • Be reliable — do what you say you’ll do
  • Have the courage to do the right thing 
  • Build a good reputation 
  • Be loyal — stand by your family, friends, and country
According to Josh Billings (Henry Wheeler Shaw), American humorist, “As scarce as truth is, the supply has always been in excess of the demand.”

Girls on the Run!
  • Girls on the Run begins today on the playground at 2:30.
  • You must have a permission slip to participate. See Ms. Roberts in room 20.

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,
