Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 131 of school on this Thursday, March 17, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies and a high of about 79 degrees.


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

Next week we'll be joined by Mrs. Boyne's class.


Today is...
St. Patrick's Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 461 A.D., Saint Patrick, Christian missionary, bishop and apostle of Ireland, dies at Saul, Downpatrick, Ireland. Thus creating, St. Patrick's Day.
In New York City on this day in 1762,the first parade honoring the Catholic feast day of St. Patrick, the patron saint of Ireland, is held by Irish soldiers serving in the British army.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
It takes 713 gallons of water to make one cotton T-shirt.

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.

Fair people are impartial. They make decisions without favoritism or prejudice. They also honor equity. They correct mistakes, promptly and voluntarily and realize it is improper to take advantage of the weakness or ignorance of others.

According to a Macedonian proverb, "If my neighbor is happy, my own work will go easier, too."

5th Grade Week

Safety First!
  • The playground swings are off limits and will remain off limits until further notice.
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • 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!"
