Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is Thursday, October 10, 2013. The forecast calls for partly cloudy skies with a high of about 68 degrees.

This morning I have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Mrs. McWilliam's Class.


Next week, Mr. Hernandez's class will be leading up in the pledge.


Today is...

World Porridge Day!

On this Day in History:

On this day in 1845, The United States Naval Academy opens in Annapolis, Maryland, with 50 midshipmen students and seven professors.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:

The sky is blue because when sunlight collides with our atmosphere, colors of the shortest wavelengths (violet and blue) are scattered - and our eyes are more sensitive to see blue.

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!

  • 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!”
