Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, December 5, 2013. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of about 59 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Riley's class.

Next week, Ms. J. Isherwood's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
National Sacher Torte Day (Sacher Torte is a dense, bittersweet chocolate spongecake covered with a thin layer of chocolate traditionally made in Germany).

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1839, Union General George Armstrong Custer is born in Harrison County, Ohio. Although he is best known for his demise at the hands of the Lakota and Cheyenne Indians at the Battle of the Little Big Horn, Montana, in 1876, Custer built a reputation as a dashing and effective cavalry leader during the Civil War.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
While we're awake, our brain generates enough power to illuminate a light bulb of 25 watts.

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."

Can-Do Food Drive
It's that time of year again! It's time for the annual Rock Springs Can-Do Food Drive! The food drive will run from Dec. 9th - Dec. 19th (next Monday). Beginning Monday, bring only non-perishable foods to donate to those in need this season. We already have 28 cans!

Fall Festival
Our Fall Festival, now titled The Winter Wonderland Festival, will take place in one week. The festival is next Thursday, Dec. 12 from 5pm to 7pm in the Character Counts Quad.

Student Council
Officers will meet in room 35, Mrs. Heiland's classroom today after school.

RSU Friday!
Tomorrow is RSU Friday! I look forward to seeing everyone tomorrow morning in the Character Counts Quad to celebrate the RSU Spirit!

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!”
