Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 70 of school on this Thursday, December 3, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, with high of about 80 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Mr. Hernandez's class to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Laquindanum's class for the pledge.


Today is...
National Roof-Over-Your-Head Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1818, Illinois achieves full statehood on this day. Though Illinois presented unique challenges to immigrants unaccustomed to the soil and vegetation of the area, it grew to become a bustling and densely populated state.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Elephants have been known to remain standing after they die.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.

Sharing is Caring.
It shows you care when you offer someone else the last cookie or ask the other person if there's anything you can get them while you're up. Simple acts of kindness are the ones we so easily overlook in everyday life. Yet they speak volumes to others in our lives.

According to Robert G. Ingersoll, American lawyer, politician and public speaker, "The record of a generous life runs like a vine around the memory of our dead, and every sweet unselfish act is now a perfumed flower."

Today is a Staff Meeting Thursday. We will meet in room 62 at 1:30 this afternoon.

Safety First!
  • Kadama's are not allowed at school.
  • 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!"
