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.

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.
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 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.
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.
