Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 80 of school on this Thursday, December 17, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, with high of about 61 degrees.



Today is...
Wright Brothers Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1903, Near Kitty Hawk, North Carolina, Orville and Wilbur Wright make the first successful flight in history of a self-propelled, heavier-than-air aircraft. Orville piloted the gasoline-powered, propeller-driven biplane, which stayed aloft for 12 seconds and covered 120 feet on its inaugural flight.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Elephants are the only land animal that can't jump.
