Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 24 of school on this Monday, September 22, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 90 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. Sylliaasen's class to lead us in the pledge.
Next week we will be joined by Ms. Peter's class.


Today is...
Ice Cream Cone Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1862, President Abraham Lincoln issues a preliminary Emancipation Proclamation, which sets a date for the freedom of more than 3 million black slaves in the United States and recasts the Civil War as a fight against slavery.

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 Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.
  • Play by the rules 
  • Take turns and share 
  • Be open-minded; listen to others 
  • Don't take advantage of others 
  • Don't blame others carelessly 
  • Treat all people fairly

According to Dennis Wholey, 20th/21st-century self-help author and journalist, "Expecting the world to treat you fairly because you are a good person is a little like expecting the bull not to attack you because you are a vegetarian."

MAP Testing:
MAP testing continues today. Please remember to be quiet and respectful around the computer lab for testing. Also, please do not walk through the lab during testing.
Testing today will be Mr. Hernandez and Mrs. Heiland.

Picture Money:
Teachers, if any of your students have picture money, please send it up first thing this morning so that it will go out in today's mail.

Fundraising Assemblies Today:
  • Kinder & 1st = 8:30
  • 2nd & 3rd = 9:00
  • 4th & 5th = 9:30

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!”
