Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 102 of school on this Thursday, February 5, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies and a high of about 79 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Baier's class.


Today is...
National Pancake Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1934, Henry Louis Aaron Jr., the baseball slugger who broke Babe Ruth's legendary record of 714 homers, is born in Mobile, Alabama.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Hummingbirds can't walk.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.

Sharing is Caring.

It shows you care when you offer someone else the last cookie or ask the other person if there's anything you can get them while you're up. Simple acts of kindness are the ones we so easily overlook in everyday life. Yet they speak volumes to others in our lives.

According to Franklin Delano Roosevelt, 32nd American President, "Human kindness has never weakened the stamina or softened the fiber of a free people. A nation does not have to be cruel to be tough."

MAP Testing
Testing today is Mrs. Dietz, and Mrs. Baiers. Be sure to remember to take your time, read the questions thoroughly, and do your best.

5th grade week

Talent Show
Teachers, please release the Talent Show kids to the MPR, if you have not already done so.
Assembly times are 8:30 and 9:30. Teachers already know the times everyone will attend.

Teacher Update:
Thursday 2/5 = Staff Meeting; please remember to bring iPods with you (just the iPods, no plugs or cords)

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. Show your school spirit by wearing your Rock Springs shirt or school colors. We look forward to seeing everyone in the Character Counts Quad tomorrow morning for the Friday 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!”
