Today is day 136 of school on this Thursday, April 7, 2016. The forecast calls for cloudy skies and a chance of rain with high of about 74 degrees.
This morning we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mrs. Boyne's class to lead us with the pledge.
Next week we'll be joined by a surprise group class.
No Housework Day
On this Day in History
On this day in 1776, Navy Captain John Barry, commander of the American warship Lexington, makes the first American naval capture of a British vessel when he takes command of the British warship HMS Edward off the coast of Virginia. The capture of the Edward and its cargo turned Captain Barry into a national hero and boosted the morale of the Continental forces.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.
Refuse to argue and pick your battles. Engaging in a conversation with another person is a choice we make (whether we always do so consciously or not). Make a conscious effort to note when you're entering into an argument, and then just stop. Remember, not every argument is worth engaging in, so don't feel like you have to get into an argument just because someone else is asking for one. Saying, "Sorry, I can't talk about this right now, let's talk more about this later," or, "You're right, I'm wrong, I'm sorry," will put a sudden halt to the argument.

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