Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 4 of school on this Thursday, August 20, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies, with high of about 86 degrees.


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


Today is...
National Radio Day

On this Day in History:
In 1911, a dispatcher in the New York Times office sends the first telegram around the world via commercial service. Exactly 66 years later, the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) sends a different kind of message--a phonograph record containing information about Earth for extraterrestrial beings--shooting into space aboard the unmanned spacecraft Voyager II.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Hummingbirds are the only animals able to fly backwards.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
Are you ready for a TRRFCC Terrific Thursday? We've been talking about the 5 Pillars of Character, now it's quiz time. Teachers, please take a minute to see which Terrific RSU students in your class can tell you the 5 Pillars of Character.

According to Ralph Waldo Emerson, American essayist, philosopher and poet, “What lies behind us and what lies before us are small matters compared to what lies within us.”

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!
