Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 79 of school on this Thursday, December 18, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 63 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Werner's class.


Today is...
Answer The Telephone Like Buddy The Elf Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1620, the British ship Mayflower docked at modern-day Plymouth, Massachusetts, and its passengers prepared to begin their new settlement, Plymouth Colony.
Also on this day in 1787, New Jersey becomes the third state of the United States.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The longest living cells in the body are brain cells which can live an entire lifetime.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
It's Pillars of Character Week at RSU!

Time for your Character Counts! ticket count. Were you able to double the number of tickets you gave out? Let's keep the challenge going and see how many you can give out by the end of the week.

According to a Japanese Proverb, "The reputation of a thousand years may be determined by the conduct of one hour."

4th grade week.

Can-Do Food Drive
Today is the end of thew Can-Do Canned Food Drive. Please keep any cans in your classrooms today as someone will come around and pick them up. Please do not bring any cans tomorrow as all the cans will have already been picked up. We will have our final count at tomorrow's assembly.

Talent Show
For anyone planning to audition for the Talent Show, even if you're still just thinking about it, please meet Mrs. Zacharias in the MPR this Today after school for a short meeting from 1:05-1:15.

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. We'll see everyone in the Character Counts Quad for the morning assembly.

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