Today is day 59 of school on this Thursday, November 13, 2014. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies today with a high of about 70 degrees.
This morning I have a group of college bound Road-Runners from Mrs. McDowell's classes to lead us in the pledge.
Next week we will be joined by Mr. Horstman's classes.
World Kindness Day
On this Day in History:
On this day in 1982, the Vietnam Veterans Memorial dedicated in Washington after a march to its site by thousands of veterans of the conflict. The long-awaited memorial was a simple V-shaped black-granite wall inscribed with the names of the 57,939 Americans who died in the conflict.
Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A cat has about 20 muscles in each ear.
Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Responsibility, our third Pillar of Character, represented by the color green. When you think about responsibility, think about being responsible for a green garden.
Ethical people show responsibility by being accountable. An accountable person is not a victim and doesn't shift blame or claim credit for the work of others. He considers the likely consequences of his behavior and associations. He recognizes the common complicity in the triumph of evil when nothing is done to stop it. He leads by example.
According to Robert Duncan, American poet, "Responsibility is to keep the ability to respond."
Today is a free Thursday. Remember that Report Card data is due by 5pm tomorrow. Also, Mrs. Aguilar is out today.
This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!”
