Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 73 of school on this Thursday, December 15, 2016. The forecast calls for cloudy skies and a chance of rain today with high of about 72 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Ms. May's. to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mr. Horstman's 5th grade.


Today is...
Cat Herders Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1791, Virginia becomes the last state to ratify the Bill of Rights, making the first ten amendments to the Constitution law and completing the revolutionary reforms begun by the Declaration of Independence.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
Chimpanzees are the only animals that can recognize themselves in a mirror.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.

Fair people are impartial. They make decisions without favoritism or prejudice. They also honor equity. They correct mistakes, promptly and voluntarily and realize it is improper to take advantage of the weakness or ignorance of others.

According to Bill Clinton, 42nd U.S. president, "In our hearts and in our laws, we must treat all our people with fairness and dignity, regardless of their race, religion, or gender."

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • 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!"
