Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 135 of school on this Thursday, March 26, 2015. The forecast calls for sunny skies today, with high of about 91 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from _ to lead us with the pledge.


Today is...
Make Up Your Own Holiday Day

On this Day in History:
On March 26, 1953, American medical researcher Dr. Jonas Salk announces on a national radio show that he has successfully tested a vaccine against poliomyelitis, the virus that causes the crippling disease of polio.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
The fungus Cordyceps is able to "mind-control" other insects like ants to climb plants and attach there to become its food.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.

Sharing is Caring.

It shows you care when you offer someone else the last cookie or ask the other person if there's anything you can get them while you're up. Simple acts of kindness are the ones we so easily overlook in everyday life. Yet they speak volumes to others in our lives.

According to an Indian proverb, "True happiness lies in giving to others."

5th grade week

CAASPP Testing
CAASPP Testing today is Mrs. Mallinger, Mrs. Heiland, and Ms. Roberts. Be sure to rest, relax, and be ready for the test! 

Running Team
Canceled for this Friday, March 27th.

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.

RSU Friday
Tomorrow is RSU Friday! We look forward to seeing everyone at the morning assembly in the Rock Springs Colors.

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
