Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
It's Pillars of Character Week at RSU!

This week is Pillars of Character Colors Week. What Pillar color are you wearing today? Be sure to look around you today and recognize the colors that your fellow students are wearing and ask them what Pillar they represent.

Tomorrow is the last day of the week. Let's all wear Roadrunner Red to show the Caring Pillar.

According to, Thomas Paine, British-born American political activist, "Character is much easier kept than recovered."

Closed this week

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.
Tomorrow is RSU Friday. Show your school spirit by wearing Roadrunner Red and we'll see everyone for morning assembly in the Character Counts Quad.

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!"
