Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, February 14, 2013. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of around 72 degrees.


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


Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Fridell and Mrs. Schmottlach's class for the pledge.

February 14th is officially, "Valentine's Day".

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1929, Sir Alexander Fleming was a young bacteriologist when an accidental discovery led to one of the great developments of modern medicine. Having left a plate of staphylococcus bacteria uncovered, Fleming noticed that a mold that had fallen on the culture had killed many of the bacteria. He identified the mold as penicillium notatum, similar to the kind found on bread. On February 14, 1929, Fleming introduced his mold by-product called penicillin to cure bacterial infections.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

Your word for the day is Simplicity
To simplify is to invite peacefulness. Think of three ways you can simplify your life and put at least one of them into practice today.

Tomorrow is RSU Friday!

“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
