Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 89 of school on this Thursday, January 14, 2016. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies, with high of about 63 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound roadrunners from Ms. J. Isherwood's class to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we'll be joined by Mrs. Goulart's class.


Today is...
Dress Up Your Pet Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1639, the first constitution in the American colonies, the "Fundamental Orders," is adopted by representatives of Wethersfield, Windsor, and Hartford.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
With more than 80,000 arms, the Basket Starfish has the greatest number of arms.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think “The Golden Rule”.

A respectful person is an attentive listener, treats others with consideration, and doesn’t resort to intimidation. A respectful person also accepts individual differences and beliefs without prejudice and judges others only on their character, abilities and conduct.

According to Adlai Stevenson II, American politician, "A free society is one where it is safe to be unpopular."

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.

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