Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, August 29, 2013. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of around 90 degrees.

This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mr. Plunkett's Class.



Today is...

More Herbs, Less Salt Day!

On this Day in History:

Hurricane Katrina makes landfall near New Orleans, Louisiana, as a Category 4 hurricane on this day in 2005. Despite being only the third most powerful storm of the 2005 hurricane season, Katrina was the worst natural disaster in the history of the United States.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The liver is the only organ able to regenerate itself completely.

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."

General Announcements:

Tomorrow is school picture day.

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!”
