Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 84 of school on this Thursday, January 7, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and a strong chance for rain, with high of about 57 degrees.


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

Next week we'll be joined by J. Isherwood's class.


Today is...
I'm Not Going To Take It Anymore Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1789, America's first presidential election is held. Voters cast ballots to choose state electors; only white men who owned property were allowed to vote. As expected, George Washington won the election and was sworn into office on April 30, 1789.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
If you fully stretch your arms out, the fingertip to fingertip length is almost exactly your body height.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Trustworthiness, our first Pillar of Character, represented by the color blue. When you think about trustworthiness, think “true blue”.

Reliability and loyalty are qualities of a trustworthy person. A trustworthy person is loyal to their family, friends, and beliefs. They can also be relied upon to keep their promises.

According to Vaclav Havel, Czech poet and political activist, first president of post-Communist Republic, "Lying can never save us from another lie."

Safety First!
  • Kadama's are not allowed at school.
  • 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!"
