Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, March 20, 2014. The forecast calls for fair skies with a high of about 73 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. McWilliams' class.

Next week, Mrs. Baiers' and Mrs. Herrera's class will be leading us in the pledge.


Today is...
National Jump-Out Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1852, Harriet Beecher Stowe's anti-slavery novel, Uncle Tom's Cabin, is published. The novel sold 300,000 copies within three months and was so widely read that when President Abraham Lincoln met Stowe in 1862, he reportedly said, "So this is the little lady who made this big war."

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Babies are born far sighted - their eyes start to focus properly between 3 to 6 months of age.

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 an 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."

Smarter Balanced Testing
The California Department of Education has postponed Smarter Balanced until next week.

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!”
