Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 36 of school on this Thursday, October 13, 2016. The forecast calls for mostly sunny skies today with high of about 80 degrees.


This morning we have a group of College Bound Roadrunners from Ms. Reynoso's first grade to lead us with the pledge.

Next week we will be joined by Kindergarten.


Today is...
National Chess Day

On this Day in History
The cornerstone is laid for a presidential residence in the newly designated capital city of Washington. In 1800, President John Adams became the first president to reside in the executive mansion, which soon became known as the "White House" because its white-gray Virginia freestone contrasted strikingly with the red brick of nearby buildings.

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
If a person or an animal is born colorblind, they instantly have excellent night vision.

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 an realize it is improper to take advantage of the weakness or ignorance of others.

According to Eleanor Roosevelt, First Lady, civil rights advocate, "It is not fair to ask of others what you are unwilling to do yourself."

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.
RSU Friday
Tomorrow is RSU Friday. Be sure to show your school spirit and wear your Rock Springs colors. We look forward to seeing everyone in the Character Counts Quad for the morning assembly.

This concludes today’s announcements. Thank you college bound roadrunners, and remember,
“Keep a smile on your face, it will increase your face value!"
