Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 92 of school on this Thursday, January 22, 2015. The forecast calls for partly cloudy to sunny skies with a high of about 72 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Zacharias' class.


Today is...
Answer Your Cat's Questions Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1840, Under the leadership of British statesman Edward G. Wakefield, the first British colonists to New Zealand arrive at Port Nicholson on Auckland Island to establish the first European settlement.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Certain sharks walk on their fins underwater.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.

Ethical people show responsibility by being accountable. An accountable person is not a victim and doesn't shift blame or claim credit for the work of others. He considers the likely consequences of his behavior and associations. He recognizes the common complicity in the triumph of evil when nothing is done to stop it. He leads by example.

According to Helen Keller, American social activist, public speaker and author, "I long to accomplish some great and noble task, but it is my chief duty to accomplish small tasks as if they were great and noble."

MAP Testing

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!”
