Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, February 13, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 81 degrees.


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

Next week, McDowell's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
Get a Different Name Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1776, Patrick Henry becomes colonel of the First Virginia battalion in defense of the state's supply of gunpowder.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Yawn are contagious for chimpanzees, just as they are for humans.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

One is an effective citizen by doing things that:
  • Remind us of our heritage
  • Involve us in the democratic process
  • Support individuals with a special responsibility for keeping the country strong
  • Help us better understand the workings of our government
  • Promote a sense of community
Keep individuals and families strong

According to Margaret Mead, American anthropologist, "Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can change the world; indeed, it is the only thing that ever has."

Valentine's Dance
Don't forget that tonight is the annual Valentine's Dance here at Rock Springs. The dance will take place from 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm.

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!”
