Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, February 6, 2014. The forecast calls for rain showers with a high of about 61 degrees.


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

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


Today is...
Lame Duck Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1911, Former President, Ronald Reagan was born. As the 40th president of the United States, the former movie star was called the “Great Communicator” for his ability to get through to ordinary Americans and give them hope and optimism for their own future and that of their country.
Also on the day in 1788, Massachusetts becomes our 6th state of the United States.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Twenty percent of Earth's oxygen is produced by the Amazon forest.

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."

Talent Show
The talent show is today! First performance will be at 8:30 for grades K, 4 & 5, and 9:30 for grades 1, 2 & 3. Tonight at 6:00 pm, our talented students will perform for the Rock Springs Community.

Today's staff meeting will begin at 1:30 in room 48.

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!”
