The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow. Think "The Golden Rule".

CST testing continues today. Once again, remember to do your best. You are all great students. Take a deep breath, relax, and show what you know!
Teachers, also remember that all electronic devices must be off during testing. This includes classroom computers, teacher laptops, iPods, and cell phones. Also, students that arrive after 8:30 will not come to your classroom until after testing is complete. They will go to the library.
Tomorrow is RSU Friday. We will be meeting in the Character Counts Quad to celebrate the Rock Springs community. I hope to see you all there in your school 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!”
