Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 69 of school on this Thursday, December 4, 2014. The forecast calls for cloudy skies and rain today with a high of about 62 degrees.


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

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


Today is...
National Cookie Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1783, future President George Washington, then commanding general of the Continental Army, summons his military officers to Fraunces Tavern in New York City to inform them that he will be resigning his commission and returning to civilian life.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Hot water freezes faster than cold water.

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."

It's 4th grade week.

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

Winter Wonderland
Date has been changed to Next Wednesday, Dec. 10th. from 5:00-7:00

Pajama Drive
On-Track is working to collect new Pajamas to help kids in need. Donate NEW pajamas in room 61.

Talent Show
It's time to start thinking about the Talent Show. Applications to audition will be handed out next week.  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.

Running Club
Due to the weather, Running Club is cancelled for tomorrow.

Staff Meeting today at 1:30 in room 56. Please bring your laptop and all items related to your current Data Team Action Plan.

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!”
