Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 16 of school on this Tuesday, September 8, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies, with high of about 97 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Werner's class to lead us with the pledge.

Next week, we will be joined by Ms. Peters class to lead us in the pledge.


Today is...
International Literacy Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1664, 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:
Whales were once land mammals that moved to the sea and adapted to marine life.

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”.

People are not things, and everyone has a right to be treated with dignity. We certainly have no ethical duty to hold all people in high esteem, but we should treat everyone with respect, regardless of who they are and what they have done. We have a responsibility to be the best we can be in all situations, even when dealing with unpleasant people.

According to William Shakespeare, English dramatist, “Mine honour is my life; both grow in one; Take honour from me, and my life is done.”

MAP Testing:
Continues on today! Testing today will be Mrs. Sylliaasen, Mr. Hernandez, Mrs. McWilliams and Mrs. Roberts/Martinez.

Safety First!
  • 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!
