Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 8 of school on this Thursday, August 28, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies today with a high of about 95 degrees.



Today is...
Race Your Mouse Around the Icons Day

On this Day in History:

In 1963 On the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington, D.C., the African American civil rights movement reaches its high-water mark when Martin Luther King, Jr., speaks to about 250,000 people attending the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. The demonstrators--black and white, poor and rich--came together in the nation's capital to demand voting rights and equal opportunity for African Americans and to appeal for an end to racial segregation and discrimination.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The world's smallest rodent is Pygmy Jerboa - measuring only a couple of inches in length - and can run as fast as a horse.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
What is the definition of Caring? 
- displaying kindness and concern for others
What is the definition of Citizenship?
- Citizenship denotes the link between a person and a state

Today, think of two people that are good Citizens and are Caring. Thank them for showing good Pillars of Character.

According to Thomas Carlyle, Scottish historian and author, “Conviction is worthless unless it is converted into conduct.”

Ice Cream Sales:
Ice cream sales are back! Beginning tomorrow, ice cream will be sold on Fridays for $1.  Students that want to purchase an ice cream need to line up at the lunch lines.

Today is a Grade-Level Collaboration Thursday. Grade-Level Leads, please remember to bring your team to the Book Room at your designated time.

MAP Testing:
MAP testing is only a week away. Teachers, be sure to check your email for information.

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.
RSU Friday:
Tomorrow is RSU Friday. I look forward to seeing all of our Roadrunners in the Character Counts Quad wearing their RSU colors tomorrow morning.

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