Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, January 16, 2014. The forecast calls for sunny skies with a high of about 86 degrees.


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

Next week, Roberts/Martinez class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
Nothing Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1919, The 18th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution, prohibiting the "manufacture, sale, or transportation of intoxicating liquors for beverage purposes," is ratified on this day in 1919 and becomes the law of the land.

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."

Talent Show
Applications for the Talent Show are due today. Those of you that may have forgotten may bring them tomorrow. Auditions are on Tuesday at 3:00.

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!”
