Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 160 of school on this Thursday, May 14, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies and possible rain later in the day, with high of about 64 degrees.


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


Today is...
National Chicken Dance Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1804, one year after the United States doubled its territory with the Louisiana Purchase, the Lewis and Clark expedition leaves St. Louis, Missouri, on a mission to explore the Northwest from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Parrots talk without vocal cords.

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 Hopi proverb, "Before you make any decision, consider its effect on the next seven generations."

It's the last few days of the Book Fair. Don't forget about the All for Books fundraiser. Scholastic will be matching all donations.

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!"
