Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 33 of school on this Thursday, October 1, 2015. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies, with high of about 89 degrees.


This morning we have a group of college bound Roadrunners from Ms. Roberts/Martinez class to lead us with the pledge.

Next week, we will be joined by Mrs. McDowell's class to lead us in the pledge.


Today is...
Fire Pup Day

On this Day in History:
On this day in 1890, an act of Congress creates Yosemite National Park, home of such natural wonders as Half Dome and the giant sequoia trees. Environmental trailblazer John Muir (1838-1914) and his colleagues campaigned for the congressional action, which was signed into law by President Benjamin Harrison and paved the way for generations of hikers, campers and nature lovers, along with countless "Don't Feed the Bears" signs.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today:
A crocodile's tongue is attached to the roof of its mouth.

Your Character Counts at Rock Springs School:
The Pillar of the Week is Caring, our fifth Pillar of Character, represented by the color red. When you think about caring, think of a red heart.

Sharing is Caring.
It shows you care when you offer someone else the last cookie or ask the other person if there’s anything you can get them while you’re up. Simple acts of kindness are the ones we so easily overlook in everyday life. Yet they speak volumes to others in our lives.

According to Jean-Jacques Rousseau, French philosopher, "What wisdom can you find that is greater than kindness?"

4th Grade week.

Today is a staff meeting Thursday

Safety First!
  • 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!
