Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 74 of school on this Thursday, December 11, 2014. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today with a high of about 72 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. Heiland's class to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Ms. S. Isherwood's class.


Today is...
International Mountain Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1946, UNICEF was founded. In the aftermath of World War II, the General Assembly of the United Nations votes to establish the United Nations International Children's Emergency Fund (UNICEF), an organization to help provide relief and support to children living in countries devastated by the war.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Some lizards can walk on water.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

One is an effective citizen by doing things that:
  • Remind us of our heritage
  • Involve us in the democratic process
  • Support individuals with a special responsibility for keeping the country strong
  • Help us better understand the workings of our government
  • Promote a sense of community
  • Keep individuals and families strong

According to Bertrand Russell, British mathematician and philosopher, "Without civic morality communities perish; without personal morality their survival has no value."

5th grade week.

Can-Do Food Drive
The annual Rock Springs Can-Do is here! The food drive will run from December 8th-December 18th. Our goal is 1,000 cans! Our current count is 359.

Talent Show
It's time to start thinking about the Talent Show. Applications to audition are available.  If you plan to try out, practice and rehearse every day before auditions.  If you want to do something with a friend, you must have time after school to practice together. Auditions are Friday, January 16.

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!”
