Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 68 of school on this Thursday, December 8, 2016. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today with high of about 66 degrees.

This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Kindergarten to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Ms. May's.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.

Ethical people show responsibility by being accountable. An accountable person is not a victim and doesn't shift blame or claim credit for the work of others. He considers the likely consequences of his behavior and associations. He recognizes the common complicity in the triumph of evil when nothing is done to stop it. He leads by example.

According to Robert Duncan, American poet, "Responsibility is to keep the ability to respond."

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • 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.

RSU Friday!

Tomorrow is RSU Friday! Be sure to show your school pride by wearing your Rock Springs colors and we'll see you in the Character Counts Quad for 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!"
