Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, April 25, 2013. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of around 68 degrees.


This morning, we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mr. Truett's class to lead us with the pledge. 


Next week we will be joined by Mr. Horstman's class for the pledge.

Today is...

Officially International Guide Dogs Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1990, The crew of the U.S. space shuttle Discovery places the Hubble Space Telescope, a long-term space-based observatory, into a low orbit around Earth. Free of atmospheric distortions, Hubble has a resolution 10 times that of ground-based observatories. About the size of a bus, the telescope is solar-powered and orbits Earth once every 97 minutes. Among its many astronomical achievements, Hubble has been used to record a comet's collision with Jupiter, provide a direct look at the surface of Pluto, view distant galaxies, gas clouds, and black holes, and see billions of years into the universe's past.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The world's termites outweigh the world's humans 10 to 1.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. Think "true blue".
One of the key qualities of Trustworthiness is Honesty. There is no more fundamental ethical value than honesty. We associate honesty with people of honor, and we admire and rely on those who are honest. But honesty is a broader concept than many may realize. It involves both communications and conduct.
According to Albert Einstein, mathematician, physicist and public philosopher, “Every kind of peaceful cooperation among men is primarily based on mutual trust and only secondarily on institutions such as courts of justice and police.”

Tomorrow is RSU Friday. We have a very special assembly planned with some very special guests. Let's all show our RSU pride and spirit by wearing school colors, and teachers remember to were your special 3 R's shirt!

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
