Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, February 20, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 80 degrees.


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

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


Today is...
Love Your Pet Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1792, President George Washington signs legislation renewing the United States Post Office as a cabinet department led by the postmaster general, guaranteeing inexpensive delivery of all newspapers, stipulating the right to privacy and granting Congress the ability to expand postal service to new areas of the nation.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Half of the world’s oxygen is made in the ocean.

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."

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!”
