Good Morning Rock Springs School!

Today is day 41 of school on this Monday, October 20, 2016. The forecast calls for cloudy skies and a 50% chance or rain  today with high of about 82 degrees.


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

Next week we will be joined by Mrs. Mallinger's class.


Today is...
Food Day

On this Day in History
On this day in 1901, a 63-year-old schoolteacher named Annie Edson Taylor becomes the first person to take the plunge over Niagara Falls in a barrel. 

Here’s a random Science Facts for today
You can't have thunder without lightning. That's because thunder is the sound caused by lightning. A charged, superheated lightning bolt creates a "resonating tube" as it travels. The air in the tube rapidly expands and contracts causing vibrations that you hear as the rumble of thunder.

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.
  • Be kind 
  • Be compassionate and show you care 
  • Express gratitude 
  • Forgive others 
  • Help people in need
According to John Wesley, evangelist and founder of Methodism, "Do all the good you can, By all the means you can, In all the ways you can, In all the places you can, At all the times you can, To all the people you can, As long as you ever can."

  • 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!"
