Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, May 29, 2014. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with a high of about 79 degrees.


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


Today is...
Put A Pillow On Your Fridge Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1848, following approval of statehood by the territory's citizens, Wisconsin enters the Union as the 30th state.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A praying mantis has only one ear.

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.

Refuse to Argue and Pick Your Battles. Engaging in a conversation with another person is a choice we make (whether we always do so consciously or not). Make a conscious effort to note when you're entering into an argument, and then just stop. Remember, not every argument is worth engaging in so don't feel like you have to get into an argument just because someone else is asking for one.

According to an Indian proverb, "He who allows his day to pass by without practicing generosity and enjoying life's pleasures is like a blacksmith's bellows: he breathes but does not live."

Fire Drill
The fire drill for today is postponed until tomorrow at 1:15.

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!”
