Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 115 of school on this Thursday, February 26, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies today, with a high of about 70 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Ms. Reynoso's classes to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Kindergarten class.


Today is...
Levi Strauss Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in history, two national parks were established in the United States 10 years apart--the Grand Canyon in 1919 and the Grand Tetons in 1929.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Rain drops can fall at speeds of about 22 miles an hour.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. When you think about trustworthiness, think "true blue".

Reliability and loyalty are qualities of a trustworthy person. A trustworthy person is loyal to their family, friends, and beliefs. They can also be relied upon to keep their promises.

According to a German Proverb, "Honesty makes you rich, but she works slowly."

Running Club
Cancelled this week

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.

RSU Friday
Tomorrow is RSU Friday. Remember to wear your Rock Springs color to show your school spirit! We look forward to seeing everyone 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!”
