Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 97 of school on this Thursday, January 29, 2015. The forecast calls for cloudy skies and a high of about 70 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by the Kindergarten classes.


Today is...
National Puzzle Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1861, Kansas is admitted to the Union as free state. It was the 34th state to join the Union. The struggle between pro- and anti-slave forces in Kansas was a major factor in the eruption of the Civil War.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Babies’ cries can sound different in different languages.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.

A fair person thoroughly employs open and impartial processes for gathering and evaluating information necessary to make decisions. Fair people do not wait for the truth to come to them; they seek out relevant information and conflicting perspectives before making important judgments.

According to a Japanese proverb, "Upon entering a village, obey the village."

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

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!”
