Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 130 of school on this Thursday, March 19, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today, with high of about 75 degrees.


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


Today is...
National Chocolate Caramel Day

On this Day in History:
On this night in 1953, for the first time, audiences are able to sit in their living rooms and watch as the movie worlds most prestigious honors, the Academy Awards, are given out at the RKO Pantages Theatre in Hollywood, California.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The Moon orbits the Earth every 27.3 days.

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."

4th grade week

CAASPP Testing
CAASPP Testing today is Mr. Horstman, Ms. Hernandez, Ms. J. Isherwood, and Mr. Plunkett. Also testing is Mrs. Eagleton and Mrs. Baiers in the mini-labs. Be sure to rest, relax, and be ready for the test! 
Teachers - be sure to check your email for an update on testing.

Thursday = Grade-Level Collaboration

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!”
