Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 126 of school on this Thursday, March 10, 2016. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies, with high of about 78 degrees.


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

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


Today is...
International Day of Awesomeness

On this Day in History
On this day in 1864, President Abraham Lincoln signs a brief document officially promoting then-Major General Ulysses S. Grant to the rank of lieutenant general of the U.S. Army, tasking the future president with the job of leading all Union troops against the Confederate Army.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
A fish never closes its eyes.

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 a Yoruban proverb, "Words are like spears: Once they leave your lips they can never come back."

Safety First!

  • 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.

  • 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,
