Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 125 of school on this Thursday, March 12, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today, with high of about 84 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Kindergarten classes to lead us in the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Kindergarten class.


Today is...
Girl Scout Birthday Day

On this Day in History:
On March 12, 1930, Indian independence leader Mohandas Gandhi begins a defiant march to the sea in protest of the British monopoly on salt, his boldest act of civil disobedience yet against British rule in India.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The information stored on an iPod Nano would fill up eight pickup truckloads of paper.

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.

Responsible people are active in the pursuit of excellence. They are diligent and they persevere avoiding excuses. 
Responsible people exercise self-control. They realize they are as they choose to be, every day.

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

5th grade week

Thursday = Grade-Level Collaboration

CAASPP Testing
CAASPP Testing today is Mrs. McWilliams, Ms. Peters, Ms. S. Isherwood, and Mrs. Riley. Be sure to rest, relax, and be ready for the test!

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!”
