Cinco de Mayo

On this Day in History

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
A shark can live for six weeks without eating.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Respect, our second Pillar of Character, represented by the color yellow or gold. When you think about respect, think “The Golden Rule”.

People are not things, and everyone has a right to be treated with dignity. We certainly have no ethical duty to hold all people in high esteem, but we should treat everyone with respect, regardless of who they are and what they have done. We have a responsibility to be the best we can be in all situations, even when dealing with unpleasant people.

According to Jackie Robinson, first Major League African-American baseball player, "Im not concerned with your liking or disliking me... All I ask is that you respect me as a human being."

Book Fair is on for the next two weeks.

CAASPP Testing
CAASPP testing continues today. Testing today are Ms. Roberts, Mrs. Zacharias, and Ms. J. Isherwood.

Cinco de Mayo Dance tonight!

Postponed once again due to weather.

Safety First!
  • Remember to use the crosswalk.
  • Please remember to walk when traveling through campus. 
  • Also, remember to use quiet voices in all academic areas.
  • 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, you are to 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,
