History

On this day in 1889, the South Fork Dam in Johnstown, Pennsylvania collapses, causing a flood that kills more than 2,200 people. The disaster is chronicled in the book, The Terrible Wave, by Marden Dahlstedt. This disaster was one of the American Red Cross's first major relief efforts. Clara Barton arrived five days later to lead the relief. It took five years to rebuild Johnstown, which again endured deadly floods in 1936 and 1977.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

A kind of jellyfish upon reaching adulthood can transform itself back to childhood by converting its cells. It may repeat this to live forever.

It’s always  the Season of Nonviolence at Rock Springs School - 

The Word of the Day is Openness 
A Turkish proverb says, “He who builds himself a fence, fences out more than he fences in.” Today be open to understanding ideas and people that you have previously opposed.

Tonight is the PTA Spring Fling! Come join us for some fun from 5:30 pm to 7:30 pm.

Also remember that tomorrow is RSU Friday. Be sure to wear your RSU t-shirts.

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