Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 145 of school on this Thursday, April 23, 2015. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today, with high of about 68 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from _ to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
International Marconi Day , and Talk Like Shakespeare Day

On this Day in History:
According to tradition, the great English dramatist and poet William Shakespeare is born in Stratford-on-Avon on April 23, 1564.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
You breathe in 2,000 gallons of air a day.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
It's Pillars of Character Week at RSU! This week I have asked you to pay closer attention to the Pillars of Character that surround us not only at school, but outside of our campus as well.

What would the world be like if everyone displayed the Pillars of Character all of the time? That's a big question, I know. Think about it and write down some of you thoughts as to how the world might be a better place.

According to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd American President, "Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough."

5th grade week. 
Overdue books need to be turned in! There are 255 overdue notices and that's too many to print. Let's get those books turned in.

CAASPP Testing
Testing today is Mr. Hernandez, Mr. Horstman, and Mrs. Heiland. Be sure to rest, relax, and be ready for the test! 

Today is a Staff Meeting Thursday.

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!"
