On this Day in History:
On this day in 1789, President George Washington attends a ball in his honor. The event provided a model for the first official inaugural ball, held to celebrate James Madison's ascension to the office ten years later, which then became an annual tradition.
Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
Red diamonds are some of the rarest stones in the world.
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".
A respectful person is an attentive listener, treats others with consideration, and doesn't resort to intimidation. A respectful person also accepts individual differences and beliefs without prejudice and judges others only on their character, abilities and conduct.
According to Jackie Robinson, first Major League baseball player, "Im not concerned with your liking or disliking me... All I ask is that you respect me as a human being."
Split schedule this week (teachers see your email/Bucket) due to the book fair.
Overdue books need to be turned in! There are 255 overdue notices and that's too many to print. Let's get those books turned in.

“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!"
