Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, November 21, 2013. The forecast calls for rain with a high of about 64 degrees.


This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Fridell & Mrs. Schmottlach.

Happy Birthday (belated)

Today is...

World Hello Day

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1877, the American inventor, Thomas Edison announces his invention of the phonograph, a way to record and play back sound.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The Atlantic Ocean grows at about the same rate as your fingernails.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:

The Pillar of the Week is Fairness, our fourth Pillar of Character, represented by the color orange. When you think about fairness, think of dividing an orange into equal sections to share fairly with friends.

Fair people are impartial. They make decisions without favoritism or prejudice. They also honor equity. They correct mistakes, promptly and voluntarily and realize it is improper to take advantage of the weakness or ignorance of others.

According to Bill Clinton, 42nd U.S. president, "In our hearts and in our laws, we must treat all our people with fairness and dignity, regardless of their race, religion, or gender."

General Announcements

  • The Fall Festival has been postponed due to the weather forecast. The new date for the Fall Festival is Thursday, December 12.

  • Teachers: today's staff meeting will begin at 1:30 in the MPR. Please be sure to bring your Common Core Standards binder.

RSU Friday

Tomorrow is RSU Friday. Remember to celebrate our great school by wearing your RSU shirt or school colors. If the weather is good, we'll see you in the Character Counts Quad for our Friday morning assembly.

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!”
