Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 14 of school on this Monday, September 8, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 87 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. Laquindanum's class to lead us in the pledge.


Today is...
International Literacy Day

On this Day in History:
Dutch Governor Peter Stuyvesant surrenders New Amsterdam, the capital of New Netherland, to an English naval squadron under Colonel Richard Nicolls. Stuyvesant had hoped to resist the English, but he was an unpopular ruler, and his Dutch subjects refused to rally around him. Following its capture, New Amsterdam's name was changed to New York, in honor of the Duke of York, who organized the mission.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The human body contains about 6,000 miles of blood vessels.

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."

MAP Testing

MAP Testing begins today. Please remember to use quiet voices around the computer lab. Also be sure to not walk through the computer lab during testing times. Teachers; please bring your class on time and give a courtesy call to the next teacher when you are finished testing. Check the Bucket for the schedule.

Testing today is Mr. Hernandez and Mrs. Heiland.

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!”
