Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 49 of school on this Thursday, November 3, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with high of about 85 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Mrs. Mallinger's to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. McDowell class.


Today is...
Sandwich Day

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School
The Pillar of the Week is Citizenship, our sixth Pillar of Character, represented by the color purple. When you think about citizenship, think regal purple as representing the state.

One is an effective citizen by doing things that:
  • Remind us of our heritage
  • Involve us in the democratic process
  • Support individuals with a special responsibility for keeping the country strong
  • Help us better understand the workings of our government
  • Promote a sense of community
  • Keep individuals and families strong
According to Thomas Jefferson, Founding Father and third U.S. president, "It is strangely absurd to suppose that a million of human beings, collected together, are not under the same moral laws which bind each of them separately."

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