Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 23 of school on this Monday, September 26, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with high of about 101 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Riley's 3rd grade to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Sylliaasen's 2nd grade.


Today is...
Johnny Appleseed Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1580, English seaman Francis Drake returns to Plymouth, England, in the Golden Hind, becoming the first British navigator to sail the earth.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
The longest recorded distance flown by any chicken is about 301.5ft in 13 seconds.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think “The Golden Rule”.
  • Treat others with respect; follow the Golden Rule 
  • Be tolerant and accepting of differences 
  • Use good manners, not bad language 
  • Be considerate of the feelings of others 
  • Don’t threaten, hit or hurt anyone 
  • Deal peacefully with anger, insults, and disagreements
According to Johann Wolfgang von Goethe, German poet, novelist, playwright, scientist and philosopher, "You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him."

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,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!"
